This App Lets You Photoshop Yourself Into Ellen’s Famous Oscars Selfie
During last night’s Oscars, host Ellen DeGeneres did something that was terrible for Twitter, good for humankind and great for Samsung. She gathered Bradley Cooper, Frank Underwood, Brangelina, Magic Mike, MERYL, JLaw, Julia Roberts, our new BFF Lupita Nyong’o and her bro for a selfie of proportions so epic that it broke Twitter. And now YOU can photobomb it!
Urturn is an app and website that lets you copy and paste yourself into any photo, like Ellen’s Twitter-crashing superstar-studded Oscars selfie, in a couple super simple steps. No Photoshop skills required!
If I could have, I would have gone for a snuggle with Channing Tatum, but I guess Meryl Streep will have to do.
Hope you have your acceptance speech prepped and ready to go because Urturn loves you, it really loves you with Oscars filters that let you give yourself the award you’ve always deserved. Except for Best Dressed, you can’t have that one, it’s Lupita’s.

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
