Celebrities read mean tweets

Taking on the haters

Need something to brighten up your Monday morning? In the latest of his occasional feature, Celebrities Read Mean Tweets, American chat show host, Jimmy Kimmel, persuaded a clutch of his A-list buddies to read out tweets that have been written about them. And, as the title suggests, they’re not exactly warm and friendly.

‘Can people stop saying Cate Blanchett is beautiful? Cate Blanchett is f****n gross dude,’ reads the actress in question, responding, ‘That’s the worst you can do? OK.’
