It’s the most wonderful time of the year: celebrities read mean tweets! Soaking up the insults this time around? Benedict Cumberbatch and Kristen Bell to name a couple. Watch the hilarity right now!
Believe it or not, there are people out there who don’t find Benedict Cumberbatch attractive– and some of them have no problem saying as much on Twitter. The Doctor Who star dropped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Sept. 21 to partake in a rousing game of “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” and it got a little, well, gross– and hilarious. His segment very well might make you pee your pants with laughter. So, uh, watch at your own risk!
Benedict walked through the curtain, and raised the all-important phone to read. “If you find Benedict Cumberbatch attractive, I’m guessing you’d also quite enjoy staring directly at a cat’s anus,” one Twitter user said. He could barely get through the entire tweet without cracking up, however, he was able to compose himself to fire a zinger right back.
“Well someone did, and she put a ring on it,” he says lifting up his ring finger to show off that wedded bling. Boom, you just got Cumberbatch-ed.
Kristen Bell also participated in this round, calling attention to a tweet which read that she, “seems like such a bitch, her vagina is probably an Alcatraz for penis.” First of all, what does that even mean? The best part, though, was Kristen’s reaction. She looked up, smiled, and then slyly winked at the camera before walking quietly off of the set. Hm, was that a penis-Alcatraz confirmation, or?
Jeff Bridges also took the Twitter heat, and read aloud, “Am now convinced Jeff Bridges is a crazy f–k and not in a cool way, just in a disturbed hobo shouting at sparrow on sidewalks way.” Jeff’s response? “Very interesting critique. I will take that to heart.”
What do you think of Benedict, Kristen and Jeff’s mean tweets? Do you agree that people who find Benedict attractive are, uh, off in their taste?
