19 glorious moments from celebrity Reddit AMAs

Madonna’s favourite birthday present, Jeff Bridges defining love and more.

ONE OF THE most popular features on Reddit are the AMAs, a Q&A in which Reddit users are invited to ask any question of a particular person. At this stage, anyone who is anyone has done a Reddit AMA. Barack Obama, Bill Gates, Stephen King – they’ve all been there, done that.

Now they’ve emerged as the go-to social media tool for celebrities promoting films, albums, etc. and are usually a treasure trove for amusing anecdotes, gossip or nuggets of insight.

Here are some brilliant moments from celebrity Reddit AMAs.
