For some celebrities, getting to host the late-night sketch comedy institution Saturday Night Live is a dream come true. For others, it's just a way to promote their latest project.

Often, it starts with a monologue intended to get said famous person in on the joke from the start. Here are a few actors who weren't afraid to be the butt of the joke on SNL.
