Infamous Celebrity Interviews

Whatever happened to sit-down celeb interviews, either on tv or in print, that would make the news for being total shit shows? I guess now everyone has publicists who tell them to stick to scripts and not go rogue and reveal much about themselves. Also Twitter has made celeb interviews sort of obsolete and archaic.

What are some of the memorable, fantastic, intriguing, or shit show celebrity interviews that you remember? Some at the top of my head are Whitney “crack is wack”, Tom Cruise “Matt you’re being glib” on Today Show, Britney chewing gum while being interviewed on CNN looking like a total trailer trash Idiot. What else?

I can't find it anywhere, but early on, Barbra was on Mike Douglas, and he chastised her...and (among other things) called her famously long fingernails "an affectation". It used to be on YouTube, but it seems to be gone now. It's definitely cringeworthy. He was a complete asshole to her.

by Anonymousreply 1908/12/2020

I think the "what kind of tree" question hurt Walters more than it hurt Hepburn--it became the stereotype of the inane kind of question celebrity interviewers asked.

Interviewers can get in big trouble if they behave too inappropriately. Although Connie Chung did a lot of damage to Newt Gingrich when she got his mother to whisper that he referred to Hillary Clinton as a bitch, it pretty much ended her career at CBS-people thought she was cruelly taking advantage of an addled old lady (which she was).

by Anonymousreply 8308/14/2020

R83 Clinically it has to be described as labile mood because she went from laughing to crying within a span of 20 seconds. Diagnosis of dissociative identity disorder is not so easily done because the psychopathology involved is imprecise. But a person with schizophrenia or schizoaffective disorder can show discontinuous personality traits. But yes I agree she looked out of it, like she's not fully there with the whole situation of being interviewed.

R105 I read that Barbara was really pissed at Diana, because a couple of weeks before the interview, Barbara and her crew had met with Diana at her house, as she does with all the people she interviews, to talk about where Diana wanted to do the interview. The crew then makes notes on where they'll set up the cameras, what kind of lighting they'll need, and makeup and wardrobe for Barbara.

Then on the day they showed up to do the taping, Diana had completely remodeled the room, which required them to scramble on getting everything set up. And I'm sure what really pissed Barbara off was that her wardrobe and makeup weren't right for the room she was now sitting in.

Diana was a shady bitch.

R107, the situation to which you refer happened during the 1978 interview which I will link to. The 1989 interview was tense because Diana did NOT greet Barbara warmly at all before the interview began. In Ross' defense, there's usually a good reason when she's being unpleasant. My guess is that these two went several rounds before the camera began rolling, and Walters was doing her best to get Diana to go all Miss Ross during filming as well.

It's the whole interview, but Rourke's uncomfortable attempts to flirt with Beale are not to be missed. Norton handled as well as he could, even getting some digs in towards Rourke at points.

There was a Leo DiCaprio magazine cover story in the 90s, around the time of The Basketball Diaries, that apparently hurt him deeply and made him alert to the media since. I read about him mentioning the interview a few years later: he even invited the magazine writer to his house, meeting his mom, and he thought they had got along really well, only to find the unfavorable story in the end. I once tried in vain to find that story online, but there seems to be no digital version available. I forgot the name of the magazine, but pretty sure it's now defunct.

Crispin Glover's infamous first appearance on Letterman. Dave ended the interview and had Glover thrown out after the weirdo did a karate kick inches from Letterman's face.

Seriously, it's a good idea to build your show business clout before you do your Andy Kaufman shtick.

Speaking of Andy Kaufman:

This is totally staged, but no less infamous, and freaking hilarious.

The most awkward one I remember is when Joan Rivers had Jessica Hahn (she'd slept with Jim Bakker and brought down PTL) on her talk show via video.

Jessica got very stroppy with Joan, scolding her for making blow job jokes about her when her brother was watching.

Joan shot back: "Are you wearing panties right now?"
