15 Messed-Up Celebrity Interviews


“Unprofessional” is an understatement.

We recently asked the members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which celebrity interview moment was inappropriate or uncalled for. Here’s what they said:

1.

When David Letterman sucked on Jennifer Aniston’s hair.


CBS

“She was clearly very uncomfortable but tried to stay professional. He’s so gross.”

2.

When Oprah was insensitive to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen about their weights.


ABC

“When she interviewed the Olsen twins, she was so disrespectful the whole time. That interview is probably why they’re so notoriously private now.”

3.

When Wendy Williams asked Laverne Cox extremely personal questions about her transition.


CBS Television Distribution

4.

When Jay Leno asked Kanye West if his recently deceased mother would be ashamed of him for interrupting Taylor Swift’s speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.


Citytv / NBC

“I don’t support Kanye, but asking a question like that when someone is in such a vulnerable state is just wrong.”

5.

When Ellen made a whole game out of which English words Sofía Vergara could and couldn’t pronounce.


NBC

“Ellen laughed at her the whole time.”

6.

When Robert Downey Jr. was promoting a Marvel movie and was asked about his past drug use and getting arrested.


Channel 4 News

“RDJ clearly looked like he didn’t want to answer but the interviewer kept pushing him to the point were RDJ left the room.”

7.

When Wendy Williams asked 18-year-old Marcus Scribner if he was a virgin.


CBS Television Distribution

“He was super uncomfortable and to make it worse, his dad was on the side with the camera witnessing everything. She said the reason why she asked was because his character on Black-ish was sexually active. Luckily, he just nervously laughed it off and said that the audience can use their imagination on that subject.”

8.

When an interviewer asked One Direction which band member sleeps with the most women.

9.

When Katie Couric asked Carmen Carrera if she’d gotten bottom surgery.


ABC

“Carmen wasn’t comfortable with the question. Laverne Cox was also on the show and she was quick to shut Katie down with an eloquent explanation as to why her line of questioning was offensive.”

10.

When a red carpet interviewer at the Grammys told Taylor Swift she’d be walking home with a lot of men that night.

11.

When Ellen asked BTS if they’ve ever hooked up with their fans.


NBC

“So disrespectful and it made RM so uncomfortable. She then took it a step further when they didn’t answer and asked the translator to translate for her. Not funny.”

12.

When Howard Stern asked Harry Styles about his dad and recently deceased stepfather.

13.

When Ellen forced Mariah Carey to drink alcohol to prove she wasn’t pregnant.


Entertainment Tonight / NBC

14.

When David Letterman asked Lindsay Lohan questions about rehab that hadn’t been approved.


CBS

“Letterman started addiction-shaming her and her rehab failures, and kept pressing on her. She handled it well, but ew.”

15.

And when Ellen brought up Justin Bieber’s nude paparazzi photos and displayed them on a huge screen.


NBC

“She was disregarding the fact that he was obviously uncomfortable.”
