Magazine stars pose for Oscars selfie

King of the Jungle Kian Egan and Hobbit actor James Nesbitt posed for an Oscars-style selfie as they appeared on The Magazine this week.

The stars snapped the picture with host Sarah Travers at the start of Friday night's show."I look utterly deranged," said actor James Nesbitt, who was just off the plane on a flying visit back home to Northern Ireland.The picture also features Belfast Methodist pupil Hannah Nelson, who joined the Obamas on stage at the Waterfront Hall during the US Presidential visit last year.Last weekend Oscars host Ellen DeGeneres managed to crash Twitter for around 20 minutes when she posted the world's most star-studded 'selfie', featuring famous Hollywood faces such as Meryl Streep, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Bradley Cooper and Jared Leto.The photograph went viral and was retweeted more than two million times."They're good fun," Kian Egan said of selfies. "I've started doing them myself recently, like if a fan asks for a picture I go 'let's do a selfie', grab their phone and take a selfie with them."The past year has been a busy one for former Westlife star Kian, following the boy band's decision to split in 2012 after over a decade of global success.Since appearing in the I'm A Celebrity... jungle he has launched a solo career, with his debut single Home and his first studio album due to be released this St Patrick's Day."It's been an incredible few months for me," Kian said."I didn't have a new album or anything before the jungle, then when I came out of the jungle I was offered a record deal and here I am. It's all happened very quickly."But it was nice to come out of something like Westlife and do something on your own."I would naturally be in that environment, with my buddies around me, with guitars, jamming out, rock songs and all that ... not to separate myself from Westlife in any shape or form, I'm very proud of my Westlife title, but it's nice to be seen in a different light and it's a little bit more me."Meanwhile Jimmy Nesbitt talked about his involvement with the Patsy Duffy Memorial Benefit 'Forget Me Not' for Alzheimer's awareness.
