Hey Hollywood, What Was Your First Tweet?

All day yesterday people were celebrating Twitter’s 8th birthday by checking out their first tweets using this trusty site. We had a good laugh at some of our own, and wondered: when Hollywood’s elite joined Twitter, what were their first 140 characters? So without further ado, here are our favourite celebrities’ first tweets.
