Joan Collins selfie: Actress makes cringe-worthy attempt to copy Ellen’s Oscars selfie as Prince Charles dodges photographic bullet
Not even the Prince of Wales could bring himself to take part in the lamest celebrity selfie of all time
It’s rare that Prince Charles opts out of making a public spectacle of himself.
But His Royal Highness dodged somewhat of a photographic bullet when he politely declined Joan Collins' offer to take part in the lamest celebrity selfie of all time.
The veteran TV actress, 80, gathered a flock of random recognisable subjects together at the Prince's Trust And Samsung Celebrate Success awards, which was held at the Odeon in Leicester Square, London last night.
But while she managed to rope in Sir Ben Kingsley, Pixie Lott, Phillip Schofield, Anna Williamson, Laura Whitmore, Luke Evans, Tess Daly, Sam Bailey, Vernon Kay, Dominic West, Jools Holland, Jeremy Irons and Gabby Logan, the stunt failed to inspire the Prince of Wales.
"The prince politely declined and moved on," a witness told the Daily Mail.
HRH will do anything for the Trust... But he won't do that. No, no. Of course, Degeneres' star-packed Samsung advert featured a slightly more A-list line up. Taken by a one Mr Bradley Cooper, she managed to cram Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Channing Tatum, Jennifer Lawrence, Jared Leto, Meryl Streep, Kevin Spacey, Julia Roberts and Lupita and Peter Nyong'o behind the lens.
The selfie that broke Twitter - courtesy of Bradley Cooper Her version was retweeted a record-breaking 3.2million times (and still counting), causing the social networking site to crash momentarily as it struggled to cope with the huge surge.
Collins' selfie, at last count, racked up just 341. And that's even with her 'view from the other side', which didn't feature a hilarious snap of Liza Minnelli, desperately trying to get into the shot but thwarted by her miniscule height. Instead, it was exactly the same shot. Just taken by a proper camera.
In case you missed them: Schofield and Holland didn't make the cut In other vaguely Oscars-related 'selfie' news, video footage has been released of Benedict Cumberbatch's U2 photobomb, which portrays the Sherlock star leaping behind Bono and co before casually strolling off.
