Celebrities read out their favorite mean tweets on "Jimmy Kimmel Live"

Lots of celebrities claim that they never read their press clippings, but in this age of online social networking it's becoming harder for them to ignore what people say about them.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" (Weeknights, 12 a.m. ET on ABC) Wednesday night featured a slew of celebrities reading out their favorite tweets out of all the mean tweets that have been written about them.

To a backing track of REM's "Everybody Hurts," celebrities read out their favorite mean tweets that had been written about them.

Kristen Bell pretended to be upset by a tweet that called her "ugly." Kathy Griffin was abused for being a redhead, whereas Louis CK and Kevin Nealon were just abused. Andy Dick's favorite was one that threatened severe physical violence against him.

But they weren't all scary or crazy. David Cross' fave was a tweet that said he "is not my kind of comedian," and his "Arrested Development" co-star Jason Bateman chose one that questioned whether he was gay.

Anna Faris revealed that she has at least one fan with literary tendencies: "If you change the 'i' in Anna Faris' last name to a 't', you get 'Anna Farts.'"

And Will Ferrell struck comedy gold -- sitting on the toilet, natch -- reading a mean tweet that called him "f***ing dum."

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs weeknights at 12 a.m. ET on ABC.
