No one is immune from the wrath of fans on Twitter — especially celebrities. And so Jimmy Kimmel’s popular segment “Mean Tweets” returns on September 25 with its 11th chapter.
Moss, who just won an Emmy for her role on Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” faced this zinger from @Glambr: “Elisabeth Moss looks Stunning. I think she can clean up well, despite my grandmother’s harsh opinion that she’s hideous.”
And then there’s Parsons, star of “The Big Bang Theory” and the upcoming “Young Sheldon.” His tweet from @Vault801Dweller said: “Jim Parsons looks like a ventriloquist dummy that came to life to become a sex offender.” Parsons blinked hard, said “Oh, God!”
The segment, which was created in 2012, has had multiple editions on Kimmel’s show, including one with NFL players and another with social »

Do we have ourselves a new late night war? During last week’s 2017 Emmys ceremony, current host Stephen Colbert and former emcee Jimmy Kimmel joked they felt “bitter” losing Best Variety Talk Series to John Oliver.

Jimmy Kimmel, America’s mildest-mannered late-night comic, became an unlikely folk hero last week by seizing the center of a heated political debate over health care and refusing to let go. Even more unlikely: He seems to have emerged the winner. The surprising transformation of the ABC late-night host — better known for viral prank videos and his mock feud with actor Matt Damon than for incisive political commentary — riveted and mobilized a national political debate over health care, with an impact that stretched far beyond his late-night audience, across social media, the Washington establishment and all the cable news networks. »

The Los Angeles Lgbt Center hosted its 48th Gala Vanguard awards on Saturday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. Hosted by comedian Jimmy Kimmel, this year’s honorees included co-ceo of William Morris Endeavor Ari Emanuel and former senior advisor to President Barack Obama Valerie Jarrett. Also in attendance were J.J. Abrams, Peter Berg, and Wilson Cruz.
The ceremony brings together leaders in the entertainment, corporate, and philanthropic industries to celebrate honorees for their support of the Lgbt community. Speaking on behalf of his honor, Emanuel noted that it is important for those who have the ability to shed light on Lgbt issues to do so.
“We have a huge platform based on the movies we make and on the TV shows we make and the things we do,” said Emanuel. “We have the ability to shed light on things or not, and I think it is important for all of us to shed light »

"Comedy is a way to escape the madness of true events," Edie Falco read from a teleprompter while presenting an award alongside Alec Baldwin at the Emmys on Sunday night. It's a sentiment that many in Hollywood share and one that countless people in our country have clung to since Nov. 8, 2016. Who among us hasn't laughed through an episode of Saturday Night Live as a way to briefly forget the horrors of real life - of living in an America led by a racist, misogynistic, Nazi-sympathizing president? At the 69th annual award show, host Stephen Colbert and countless celebrity presenters poked fun at, mocked, and made bold statements about Donald Trump's various atrocities, but their cutting words rang hollow. Shortly before Falco took the stage and uttered that phrase, Colbert surprised the audience during one of his skits by wheeling out former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer. He »

Jimmy Kimmel jumped on news McCain said he cannot vote for the latest Gop health care plan. McCain said this afternoon he will not support the bill without a Cbo score and bipartisan input, sticking to what he previously had said he would do, despite his relationship with bill co-author Sen. Lindsey Graham. With McCain’s “no” vote, bill is now just one additional thumbs down from failing. Sen. Rand Paul has vowed to vote “no” and Sen. Susan Collins is expected to follow… »

Jimmy Kimmel lambasted Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy's proposed healthcare bill on Thursday for the third consecutive night, arguing that it removes protections from those who need it most – patients with preexisting conditions.
"People tell me I should give [Cassidy] the benefit of the doubt, and I do give him the benefit of the doubt," Kimmel said. "I doubt all the benefits he claims are part of his healthcare bill."
Earlier this year, Cassidy declared on Kimmel's show that any healthcare bill must pass "the Jimmy Kimmel test," meaning that insurance »

Republican Senator Bill Cassidy (R-la) is probably regretting using Jimmy Kimmel’s infant son Billy as a political prop.

Jimmy Kimmel will not be shunned into silence. For three days, the Jimmy Kimmel Live! host has been fighting the latest Gop-led effort to repeal and replace Obamacare. During Thursday's monologue, he once criticized President Donald Trump and Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy, who co-authored the Graham-Cassidy bill. "If you've been watching the show over the past few days, I have found myself in the middle of a battle over American healthcare. After my son Billy had open-heart surgery, Senator Bill Cassidy from Louisiana made some promises and assurances he did not keep," Kimmel told viewers. "The reason I had him on my show in the first place was because he started telling people that any plan he »
Jimmy Kimmel’s health care battle continued on Thursday night — but rather than focus on the latest ramblings of Fox & Friends co-anchor Brian Kilmeade, the late-night comedian turned his attention to President Donald Trump.
Trump on Wednesday made his endorsement of the controversial Graham-Cassidy Bill known, tweeting in support of the potential Affordable Care Act alternative and its cosponsor, Louisiana Senator Bill Cassidy. In response, Kimmel argued that Trump doesn’t actually care about the specifics of the bill, as long as it replaces the health care policy enacted under the Obama administration. »
Halle Berry may be a glamorous Oscar winner these days, but in her youth, she was an underage bartender! The 51-year-old actress opened up to Jimmy Kimmel on Thursday night about her pre-Hollywood life as a bartender in Chicago.
“I wasn’t even old enough to be a bartender. I was in a big city, and I was 19 years old,” she recalled. “I wasn’t very good, but I ended up being good because I would say, ‘Ok, so what do you want?’ And they would say, ‘Sex on the beach,’ and I would say, ‘Interesting, what is in a Sex on the Beach?’ And they would tell me, and I would just start pouring.” »
For the third night in a row Jimmy Kimmel tore into politicians over their latest attempt to kill Obamacare. He slammed Donald Trump for being a former reality show star who knows zero about health care. »
Jimmy Kimmel fired back at Republicans who have dismissed his criticisms of the Gop’s plans to repeal and replace Obamacare, once again using his monologue to urge viewers to call their senators to stop the pending legislation.
On Tuesday, he called Cassidy a “liar” for coming on his show earlier this year and vowing not to support any legislation that does not guarantee affordable health care to families, particularly those with children who have pre-existing medical conditions. Cassidy had said he would not support any bill that did not pass the “Jimmy Kimmel test.”
But the Graham-Cassidy legislation, Kimmel said, “most definitely does not pass that test.” He noted that it weakens protections for pre-existing conditions, and would allow insurance companies to once again impose lifetime caps, among »
