What is better than a good celebrity selfie? Well, lots of things if not most things. But whenever I've found myself needing a quick pick-me-up, celeb selfies are a great way to smack a smile back onto my face. Why is this the case? I don't have a firm answer on this one yet, but I think it's just a good reminder that, for the most part, celebrities are funny, normal people who also like to take selfies with their friends.

I think it's safe to say that much of the hype and fascination started at the 86th Academy Awards.

This famously featured Jennifer Lawrence, Channing Tatum, Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin Spacey, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Lupita N'yongo, Lupita's brother Peter, and Angelina Jolie. If that's not an A-List selfie, I don't know what is!

But now the new hot celebrity selfie on the block is one of Tom Hanks alongside the cast of [The Walking Dead](series:201193), Paul Wesley from [The Vampire Diaries](series:200853) and Ben McKenzie from [Gotham](series:1127075). This beaut was taken at a New York Rangers game following New York Comic Con.

Doesn't this look like the greatest group of famous friends you've never had?

Gwen's Group Selfie

Nicole Richie, Chelsea Handler, Naomi Watts, Stella McCartney, Gwen Stefani, and Sam Taylor Wood were all present in Gwyneth Paltrow's fabulous group selfie.

The Prince's Trust Event Selfie

Joan Collins pioneered this selfie alongside with Pixie Lott, Sir Ben Kingsley, Sam Bailey, Tess Daly, Dominic West, Jools Holland, and Vernon Kay.

Nicole Richie's Bathroom Selfie

At the MET ball, Nicole Richie decided to take selfie matters into her own hands and took the best bathroom selfie hanging out with her gorgeous friends. Cara Delevingne, Hayden Panettiere, Zooey Deschanel, Riley Keough, and Zoe Kravitz.

Star Trek Reunion Selfie

This selfie featured the stars of Star Trek: The Next Generation. LeVar Burton selfies with William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Jonathan Frakes, Gates McFadden, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn, and Brent Spiner.

These celebs look like they're always having a good time. Now my question is, how do I casually insert myself? Real life, photoshop, I'm not picky!
