Got my best side? Hollywood stars immortalised in plastic by Lego Manchester to recreate Oscars selfie

Hollywood stars Meryl Streep, Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt and Bradley Cooper posed at the Oscars for Ellen DeGeneres’ group selfie last week.

It crashed Twitter and was retweeted a whopping three million times smashing the previous record held by Barack Obama.

And now Manchester’s Legoland model builders have immortalised the iconic image in plastic to produce a ‘mini selfie’.

The brains behind the creation are now hoping that stand-up comedian and television host Ellen will share the Lego love with her 27.6m Twitter followers.

But it’s not just Mancunians getting in on the act, with Simpsons creator Matt Groening sharing a cartoon version which depicts Homer getting kicked out of shot by Bradley Cooper.

The Made in Chelsea cast also recreated the snap with lothario Spencer Matthews taking the role of Bradley Cooper and best friend and McVities heir Jamie Laing squeezing in shot as Ellen, giving birth to the ‘Chelsea selfie’.
