Ron Howard Takes His Followers On A 'Rush' Ride In Today's Twitter-Wood

One of the greatest aspects of Twitter is that it connects fans to the celebrities they admire. We now know when the once unattainable stars are cooking a delicious breakfast or having a relaxing night in front of the TV (insert smiley face here!). At first we caught a glimpse into their world simply through text updates. Don't get us wrong, clearly we're fans of the written word, but with the added photo features on the enhanced Twitter we get actual snapshots of their lives.

For example, director Ron Howard went on a photo spree today while filming "Rush," tweeting behind-the-scenes photos of the crew shooting, editing and setting up scenes. The biographical movie centers on Formula 1 champion driver Niki Lauda (Daniel Bruhl). Just weeks after a car crash in 1976 almost killed him, he gets back behind the wheel to challenge James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth), his ultimate rival. The film also stars "Game of Thrones" newcomer Natalie Dormer and Olivia Wilde.
