Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets About Themselves Returns

It can’t be easy being an extremely well-paid A-list star.
Just imagine using Twitter. Sure, you could be digitally showered with compliments from time to time, but chances are you’d soon start to grow tired of social networking when the trolling starts.
Well spare a thought for those affected - Jimmy Kimmel has once again invited a string of big names reading out some fairly hurtful, and admittedly hilarious Tweets about themselves.
Backtracked by REM’s Everybody Hurts, everyone from Chris Pratt to Britney Spears and Gerard Butler have a go at keeping a straight face/not bursting into tears while scrolling through the messages. It's truly wonderful stuff.
Even Adam Sandler pops up at the end – they probably have a 14hr outtake reel for that one.
