When Celebrities Read ‘Mean Tweets’ Of Themselves On ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ America Rejoices


“The Internet is both a wonderful and horrible place. A place where people go to share their love and also their hate,” says the YouTube description of Celebrities Read Mean Tweets.

Ladies and gentlemen, that description could not be any more accurate in the case of Jimmy Kimmel Lives beloved long-running bit.

Instead of ignoring celebrities they hate, some people take to the internet to whine to their few followers about the flaws they see in Hollywood’s biggest stars.

When Jimmy Kimmel began this hit sketch series, he struck comedy gold. There is just something so funny about celebrities reading stupid “mean” comments about themselves.

This tenth edition features Hugh Grant, Kate Hudson, Greg Kinnear, Melissa McCarthy, Chris Evans, Jane Lynch, Norman Reedus, Margot Robbie, Anthony Mackie, Judd Apatow, Olivia Wilde, Paul Rudd, Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Wanda Sykes, Russell Crowe, Bryan Cranston, and Kiefer Sutherland, which might be the greatest gathering of actors yet.

Even though Jimmy Kimmel has featured some great movie stars and athletes, this group of celebs and the selected tweets are probably the funniest yet.

I simply can’t finish this article without selecting a few favorites. @andypstevo tweeted, “Why does Ryan Gosling always look like he’s trying to squeeze a fart out without it making any noise?” Naturally, Ryan Gosling appropriately responds, “Because I’m a gentleman.”

But without a doubt, Bryan Cranston steals the show. @CalvinSoup tweeted, “Bryan Cranston looks like Jim Carrey impersonating Matthew McConaughey,” and after Bryan Cranston reads the tweet, he brilliantly impersonates Jim Carrey impersonating Matthew McConaughey.

I’ve watched the clip at least five times and it just gets more and more impressive.
