9 Stars Who Showed the World How to Answer to Mockery

Being capable of laughing at yourself is a sure sign of having a healthy sense of humor. People having this trait usually don't lack other benefits, like talent.

To prove this point, Bright Side would like to tell you about 9 celebrities who not only do their job well but also joke at themselves with style.

Miley Cyrus

Healthy food is the thing today with millions of devotees all over the world – but not Miley. The singer loves pizza and isn't bothered by the clicks of camera shutters when eating it in public.

What Miley loves even more, though, is quipping at her food tastes and those who scorn her for them. For her 22nd birthday, she ordered a giant pizza for herself and her guests, and her social media pages regularly feature jokes about her relationships with pizza.

Steve Harvey

In 2015, Harvey called the wrong name for the winner of the Miss Universe competition he was hosting. The public got angry at his inattentiveness, and he became a hero of numerous offensive memes on the Internet.

It may seem that keeping a low profile would be the best course of action given the circumstances, but Steve didn't think so. After just 5 days, on Christmas Eve, he posted a picture of himself captioned "Merry Easter, y'all!" Harvey's sense of humor was so appreciated that he was invited to host Miss Universe for the following year as well.

Iggy Azalea

Snoop Dogg once joked at Iggy and compared her to a White Chicks character: one of the main roles was that of an African American dressed up as a blonde girl who wasn't too pretty yet quite funny.

Many would think such a comparison to be offensive, but Iggy saw a reason to laugh and have some fun. She and her friend dressed up as "white chicks" and repeated one of the most hilarious scenes in the movie: the dance battle.

Taylor Swift

Many of us may look funny in some outfits. But where we get ridiculed only by our friends or colleagues, celebs get thrown into the spotlight right away.

This was what transpired when Taylor Swift put on a cute coat that, in Web users' opinions, looked a lot like Paddington Bear's coat, complete with a red hat for the perfect match. However, Taylor was unfazed, and she launched a poll asking who looked better in the outfit.

Chris Pratt

We all remember the brilliant work of the actor in Jurassic World and eagerly await the sequel, the preparations for which are already under way.

Strenuous exercise and diet led to fans accusing Chris of being too thin, and he didn't remain silent. "To prove my security in the way I look, I'm posting a current selfie of me at what I consider a very healthy weight," the actor wrote on his Instagram, posting a pic of a T-Rex skull.

Jennifer Aniston

The actress demonstrated her wonderful sense of humor by shooting a short film about the popular gossip around her. There's a pregnancy she's allegedly hiding from the public; there are her children, one of whom is an alien; there is luxury and lavishness. Even her famous hairdo, said to be a wig, appeared in this movie. Take a look at it here.

50 Cent

It so happened that the rapper declared bankruptcy. However, there were rumors that he did that only to avoid large payments due to a lawsuit. Curtis Jackson jokes about it in social media from time to time, showing off his "huge wealth" and feeding the gossip.

Kim Kardashian

Kim has over 100 million followers, and there are those who accuse her of narcissism. She knows about that and laughs at the topic herself. For instance, in a Web provider ad, she addresses the public, saying, "Data you paid for that could be used to see my makeup, my backhand, my outfits, my vacations, and my outfits. Sadly all lost. Please, help save the data."


The British singer knows that the best way to counter a bad joke is with a good one. For example, on the day following her 29th birthday, Adele posted a photo where she was made into a cute old lady. The joke was preconditioned by ceaseless accusations of her looking much older than her real age.
