  • We never know how Jimmy Kimmel convinces A-listers to read their worst insults aloud... but we're always glad that he does.

    Celebrities Read Mean Tweets just might be the greatest chat show bit ever invented. We’ve got to hand it to U.S. host Jimmy Kimmel (and his clever writing team) for coming up with such a simple, yet oh-so-hilarious idea – and for getting the who’s who of Hollywood to actualy go along with it.

    In case you’ve missed out on the previous six instalments of Celebrities Read Mean Tweets, here’s a bit of background. Basically, every time a star visits Jimmy Kimmel Live, he picks a tweet from one of their Internet haters and has them read it aloud for the camera.

    In the latest edition (which aired Wednesday night in the U.S.), Emma Stone, Julia Roberts, Kit Harrington, Matthew McConaughey and Courteney Cox are among the actors who gamely play along.

    As always, the best part of the 3-minute video is watching the celebs’ reactions to their horrible tweets. Some are completely deadpan and straight-faced (Emma Stone), some look genuinely sad (Kit Harrington) and others just can’t help but laugh at the ridiculous insults. (We’re looking at you, Julia Roberts.)
