What do female celebraties think about laughter? Here is what Angelina Jolie, Cameron Diaz, Sandra Bullock, Nicole Kidman, Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts, Shirley Maclaine and many more have to say. Our favorite is of course Oprah who says “I’ve tried Laughter Yoga and it works!”

Angelina Jolie

I have always found it hard to stop giggling. I did it a lot during my growing-up years, and viewers saw what happens on television when I was seven months pregnant. I was on a chat show and when asked about the impending birth of my first natural child, I started to giggle uncontrollably. I tried to explain between laughter how pregnancy turned me into a very happy lady, probably due to hormones. I revealed how my giggles would sometimes go on for hours. And then, would you believe, I got the giggles again while doctors performed the caesarean surgery prior to baby daughter Shiloh’s birth. I couldn’t stop laughing – and Brad (Pitt, the father) caught it all on video film. I kept laughing as I breast-fed Shiloh for the first time, 30 minutes later!”

Cameron Diaz

I’m told I have one of the biggest and most infectious laughs in Hollywood. I don’t know about that. But, yes, I often get fits of laughter. I can’t help finding things funny that other people don’t!

Sandra Bullock

I like laughing and making other people laugh. Two years ago, when I married Jesse (TV star Jesse James) at a ranch near Santa Barbara, we agreed to a bit of fun when it came to the vows. He wanted me to promise that he could bring home dogs that he found and I made him promise not to bring home any dogs until I OK’d it. We could hardly hear ourselves speak because of the laughter from the guests.

Nicole Kidman

I am really giggly and it doesn’t take much to make me laugh. Sometimes when I start I can’t stop. There has always been laughter in my family. I can still hear my parents’ laughter from the beach when I was swimming in the surf with my younger sister Antonia when we were little.

Oprah Winfrey

There is always something that makes me laugh every day. Last year I highlighted Laughter Yoga on my TV program. Laughter Yoga combines laughter with yogic breathing exercises. It is a perfect way to laugh and get exercise at the same time. It approaches laughter as a body exercise so it’s easy to laugh even if you’re depressed or in a bad mood. I’ve tried it, and it works.

Julia Roberts

Wit is the key to anybody’s heart, because who doesn’t like to laugh. Show me a person who doesn’t like to laugh, and I’ll show you a person with a toe tag.

Shirley Maclaine

I laugh at myself a lot. The person who knows how to laugh at himself will never cease to be amused.

Gwyneth Paltrow

“You can’t help laughing when Chris (husband Chris Martin, singer with the Coldplay band) is around. He keeps me in fits.”

Emma Thompson

When I was young, laughter always filled our house – thanks to my father Eric who taught us the importance of it. Early in I never wanted to be a successful actress – I wanted to be a comedian and make people laugh. I love laughing and the sound of it.” (Eric Thompson was the creator of the children’s TV show, The Magic Roundabout).

Kate Winslet

Being married you have to have a good sense of humour. Laughter is a very important part of my life, and my marriage. For example, when Sam, my husband (Sam Mendes), was doing a play on Broadway, we were in New York and in our apartment we had a situation where we had to trap some mice. They were squeaking and we were laughing. It was quite hysterical really. We make each other laugh all the time. And that’s the way I like it.
