It also features the voices of  Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly and Taron Egerton

Another of her movies releasing this year is Masterminds, which is based on the true story of the Loomis Fargo Robbery. She plays a detective in the film, which also stars Zach Galifianakis, Owen Wilson, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis and Kate McKinnon.

Take a look at just a few of Leslie’s tweets.
