WATCH: Live Mean Tweets on ‘Jimmy Kimmel’ Is a Real Thing Now
There really is nothing better than Benedict Cumberbatch in the flesh.
Jimmy Kimmel announced on his show last night that a bunch of famous people will appear in person all week to read mean tweets about themselves. In other words, the latest edition of Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets will not be a pre-recorded bit. Actual audience members will get to see the stars react to the Twitter hate. Laughs will be had.
The new bit kicked things off on Monday with Cumberbatch reading something about his appearance, Jeff Bridges reading some criticism about his mental state, and Kristen Bell, who unfortunately had to read an extremely mean tweet about her lady parts.
Watch Kimmel explain the origins of this live reading, below. (Or skip ahead to 2:40 for the mean tweets).
