Oscar host Jimmy Kimmel brought back one of his late-night show’s signature skits, “Mean Tweets,” to plenty of fanfare at Sunday’s show, as Hollywood luminaries were happy to laugh at themselves — or at least give the impression they are.
“Jackie” star Natalie Portman — who received early Oscar buzz for her portrayal of former First Lady Jackie Kennedy before fading late — led off the segment, reading a tweet from someone who mocked her presumed dietary habits.
“Feel like if u went to lunch w Natalie Portman she would only order a hot tea with Lemon and MAYBE some toast,” a Twitter user wrote to the actress. “Definitely not an entree tho.”
Portman then turned to the side to reveal a prodigious (pregnant) belly, telling the tweeter “You’re wrong.”
Miles Teller may have been the target of the wittiest barb, as the “Bleed for This” star couldn’t help but crack a smile when reading the tweet directed at him.
“Miles Teller has the face of a guy who would request Gangnam Style at a wedding where he doesn’t know either the bride or groom,” the tweet said.
