Watch Gwyneth Paltrow, Adam Sandler, and Other Stars Read Mean Tweets About Themselves

The list of stars that Jimmy Kimmel has convinced to read mean tweets about themselves was already impressive: Jon Hamm, Matthew McConaughey, Mindy Kaling, Julia Roberts. The latest round, No. 8 in the ongoing series, is no less star-studded, with a nice blend of beloved celebrities (Chris Pratt), divisive ones (Lena Dunham), and, to be frank, easy targets (Gwyneth Paltrow, Adam Sandler).

As usual, some of the digs are nonsensical and others feel kind of spot-on, depending, of course, on how you feel about the celebrity in question. For me, at least, Britney Spears’ delivery of her mean tweet is particularly charming.
