List Rules Vote up the very best celebrity clap backs.

Celebrities don't exactly have it rough. But one aspect of celebrity culture that would be difficult for even the nicest among us to deal with is the constant intrusion of paparazzi. Fortunately, a few famous folks have turned their privacy invasions into some of the most entertaining photo ops of the year.

Us commoners often forget having a camera shoved in your face 24/7 can be more than a little maddening, but how celebs respond to paparazzi photos actually tells us a lot about who they are. While many famous people simply ignore the eternally clicking cameras, those who choose to engage often do so with violence. But it's refreshing to find some epic ways stars have clapped back at paparazzi without aggression. They had some fun while getting their point across, and it just goes to show why they're the paid entertainers.

In what has to be one of the funniest responses to the paparazzi, rewind time to 2008. Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy, who were dating at the time, were the darlings of tabloid photographers. In typical funnyman fashion, Carrey got back at them with his trademark over-the-top humor: he put on Jenny's swimsuit.

The photos of them leisurely strolling along the beach are a stitch, and they created a truly memorable way to tell the paps to get lost... or to keep on shooting.
