Jim Parsons, Elisabeth Moss On Jimmy Kimmel
Jimmy Kimmel’s best skit is without-a-doubt Mean Tweets. The late night host asks for celebrities to read mean posts about themselves. It’s no-holds-barred when Jim Parsons and Elisabeth Moss read “fans” comments.
“Elisabeth Moss looks stunning,” read the actress. “I think she can clean up well, despite my grandmother’s harsh opinion that she’s hideous.” That last line really got to the actress who starred on The West Wing and Mad Men.
Moss is also currently on The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu.
“Looks Like A Ventriloquist Dummy…”
The tweet that Jim Parsons reads is even worse. “Jim Parsons looks like a ventriloquist dummy that came to life to become a sex offender,” read the actor. Again, the comments are harsh and almost anonymous.
The segment is wildly popular among fans of the show. It began back in 2012 where there was one with NFL players and another with social media creators. A recent one also included Jeff Bridges, Emma Stone, and Samuel L. Jackson, among others.
Some celebs are hurt while others just laugh off the insults.
Sticks, Stones, And Insults For Jim Parsons
Regardless of what one fan thinks of Jim Parsons, it’s clear that he’s loved by way more fans. The Big Bang Theory remains the #1 comedy on television and he’s currently producing two other series.
In addition to Jim Parsons’ work life, the actor has also gotten married to long-time boyfriend, Todd Spiewak. The couple has been married for over six months now but waited for fifteen years to tie the knot.
Jim Parsons is combining his personal life with his work life for a new series called The Family Gene. Both Spiewak and Parsons will work as producers on the show. Before the duo met, Spiewak was an established graphic designer.
The actor looks a little hurt by the comment from a “fan,” but knowing he’s the highest paid television actor in Hollywood should ease the burden.
Do you think this comment on Jim Parsons was too harsh?
