According to Mashable Editor Brian Ries, the photo has surpassed Barack Obama’s “Four more years” image to be the most retweeted ever.

Among the stars in the image are Oscar nominees Jared Leto, Jennifer Lawrence, Meryl Streep, and Bradley Cooper.

At the time of this post, it has been retweeted nearly 500,000 times.
