"It's funny to say, how do you cope with it? Because I don't cope with it. It's really hard,” revealed Cher.

"If I get a nasty tweet, or if someone shouts at me in the street that's really disrespectful to me or my family, I kind of wait until I go home. You shut the door and then you can have a cry about it. No-one needs to know."
