As far as late night talk shows go, Jimmy Kimmel has what is quite possibly the funniest segment with his “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” series.
The latest edition included Julia Roberts, Ashton Kutcher and Emma Stone, among others. During the segment, which Time calls a "national treasure," the celebrities all read tweets that were so offensive and hilarious it sometimes took a few moments just for them to get through the 140 characters worth of insults.
Daily Mail reports Roberts was seen reading, “Her gigantic mouth looks like it will devour an elephant in one bite,” which was posted by @kemotherapy7.
The actress laughed and responded in a graceful way, thanking and wishing the Twitter user good luck.
Others, like Two and a Half Men star Ashton Kutcher, were simply speechless. The tweet about him described the Twitter user hoping Kutcher would “get hit a bus. ASAP.”
Emma Stone responded with a simple, “Okay,” upon reading a tweet that suggested her face smells like cat urine.
Other celebrities such as Mindy Kaling, Andy Garcia and Courteney Cox were also part of the edition. Their reactions varied from offended to indifferent. There were even a few defensive comments, two of which were from Sofia Vergara and June Squibb.
This is part seven of the video series, which has previously included Will Ferrell, Matt LeBlanc, Jessica Alba, Jennifer Garner and many others.
