Celebs Who Ripped Their Interviewer To Shreds

We all have buttons that we don’t like to
have pushed, and celebrities are no different. For Taylor Swift, it’s being asked about dating. For Tom Cruise, it’s pharmaceutical drugs. Whatever the trigger, these interviewers pushed
too far and tensions lit up. These are the celebs who ripped their interviewer
to shreds. Larry King’s 2007 interview with Jerry Seinfeld
has gone down in infamy. Basically, the only way it could have gone
worse is if someone dropped a Junior Mint into an open chest cavity during surgery. King’s big mistake was asking if Seinfeld’s
long-running, eponymous series had been cancelled. “You gave it up, right?” “I did.” “They didn’t cancel you?” As fans of the show have long known, the star
chose to end things on a high note and reportedly turned down a $5 million per episode offer
from NBC. Seinfeld responded to King incredulously: “You think I got cancelled? Are you under the impression I got cancelled?” “Have I hurt you, Jerry?” Jerry then reminded Larry that the news was
clearly available, semi-joking, “Is this still CNN?” “Don’t most shows go down a little?” “Most people do also.” He then drove it home with: “I was the Number 1 show on television, Larry. Do you know who I am?” King tried to laugh off his mistake, but it
was clear Seinfeld was annoyed. The talk show host addressed the disastrous
exchange years later during an interview on The Young Turks, remembering, “He later said he wasn’t mad, but he was mad…I
thought he was dropped.” Claiming he hadn’t kept up with the show in
its day, King added, “When he took it off, I didn’t know that he
took it off. But that was, I should have known that, but
I was stupid.” Taylor Swift is so obviously sick of having
her love life slapped across the tabloids. In 2013, she told Vanity Fair about her extreme
distaste for the way she’s portrayed as positively boy-crazy in the media, saying, And this is hardly the first time Swifty has
said something like this. So Nancy O’Dell should have probably known
better before presuming this scenario, at the 2015 Grammys. “You’re gonna walk home with more than maybe
just a trophy tonight. I think lots of men” The Entertainment Tonight reporter received
what can only be described as a death stare. Swift then replied, “I’m not going to walk home with any men tonight. I’m going to go hang out with my friends,
and then I go home to the cats.” “No men allowed.” “Men get me in trouble.” Burn. Rashida Jones had an epic quip when a reporter
made a major flub, neglecting the fact that the star is, indeed, biracial. TNT’s Danielle Demski, for some reason, must
have forgotten that the Parks & Recreation star’s famous parents are legendary music
producer Quincy Jones and the late Golden Globe-winning actress Peggy Lipton. The incident occurred at the 2015 SAG awards
as Demski commented on Jones’ red carpet look. “You look like you’ve just come off like an
island or something. You’re very tan, very tropical.” “I mean, you know, I’m ethnic.” “Me too.” Rihanna is absolutely no stranger to shutting
down an interview if the questions steer towards tabloid gossip. The girl is here to work, work, work. In 2012, RiRi was promoting her upcoming film
Battleship when she completely derailed an interview on the Australian morning show Sunrise. All thanks to the interviewer asking the singer
how she feels about being romantically linked to other stars. At the time, this included rumors about a
fling with Ashton Kutcher and her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown who had been charged with assaulting
the star in 2009. “How frustrating is it when you’re linked
to another Hollywood star?” “Very frustrating. Almost as frustrating as being asked about
it.” Rihanna then cut off the interview, by telling
the interviewer just where she stands on owning her privacy. “They’re interested in a lot of things, a
lot of things that don’t matter, or shouldn’t.” Cara Delevingne’s 2015 interview with Good
Day is the visual equivalent of a creepy dude asking a pretty girl to smile when she’s clearly
annoyed. The whole thing was completely uncomfortable,
and Delevingne wasn’t here for it at all. Things got off to a pretty bad start when
one of the anchors completely botched her name, calling Cara…Carla. “Carla Delevigne is in the movie, she joins
us live from New York City to talk about Paper Towns. Cara, good morning!” Things went downhill from there, when one
interviewer asked the star, who was promoting her film Paper Towns, if it was easier to
focus on work because she’s busy. Delevingne replied, “No, I don’t know where that comes from.” Then, when asked if she had anything in common
with her character, she snapped back with a sarcastic, “No, I actually hate her.” The interview finally came to a disastrous
halt when a host asked her why she didn’t seem more excited. “I saw you in London talking a couple weeks
ago on TV, and you seemed a lot more excited about it than you do right now. Are you just exhausted?” Having clearly mastered Taylor Swift’s death
stare, Delevingne added, “You know, the premiere was last night. It was an emotional night. It felt like the end of an era, but I’m not
any less excited than I was a couple of weeks ago.” Yet, the hosts kept pushing. “You do seem a bit irritated. Perhaps it’s just us.” “No, yeah, I think it’s just you.” …Well, they did kick things off by calling
her “Carla.” Anne Hathaway goes to great lengths to master
every role she takes on. For Les Mis, the star told Vogue that she
adopted a diet consisting of quote, “two thin squares of dried oatmeal paste a day.” She had a similar work ethic while filming
The Dark Knight Rises, for which she reportedly went vegan, learned martial arts, picked up
yoga, and weight trained for 10 months. Yet, all that this one Extra interviewer wanted
to talk about was the star’s figure and tight costume. He asked, “You’re always in great shape, but you had
to make sure you were in perfect shape for this one, didn’t you?” “Eh.” After Hathaway highlighted her stunt work,
the interviewer followed up by asking whether or not her catsuit was “form-fitting,” which
anyone with eyes could clearly see. After a third question about her body and
diet, Hathaway finally shot back, “Any particular workout-” “Are you trying to lose weight? What’s the deal, man? You look great. No, no, seriously. We have to talk about this. What do you want? Are you trying to fit into a catsuit?” How could you not love the way she handled
herself in this objectively awkward moment? One particular 1994 ESPN2 interview with former
New Orleans Saints quarterback Jim Everett makes The Maury Show look tame. According to The Washington Post, even host
Jim Rome later admitted he went too far, but ESPN never took disciplinary action against
him. Apparently, getting smashed to the ground
on live TV is punishment enough though Everett should have kept his cool. “Jim, good to have you on the show.” “Good to be here, Jim, thank you.” “Check that, Chris Everett, good to have you
on the show.” The issues began when Rome called the NFL
star “Chris Everett,” an apparent reference to female tennis legend, Chris Everett, and
a jab clearly aimed to be an insult. This was the first time the host ever uttered
the long-running slight right to the quarterback’s face. Everett said, “If you call me Chris Everett to my face one
more time…” “I already did it twice.” “You better…you better, you call me one
more time you better take a station break.” The final straw was when Everett said, “You probably won’t say it again.” “I bet I do.” “Okay.” “Chris.” Everett ended up flipping the table and shoving
Rome to the ground. Everett later said in a teleconference, via
The Washington Post, that he has no regrets, claiming, Perhaps The Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg
got a little bit too meta in his portrayal of the infamously smug Facebook founder, Mark
Zuckerberg. Honestly, it’s hard to tell exactly what he
was thinking when he used an entire Univision interview to roast a younger blogger while
promoting his film Now You See Me. In between railing on interviewer Romina Puga
for referring to Morgan Freeman by only his last name and mocking her for writing interview
questions on her hand, Eisenberg’s sense of humor quickly went from sarcastic to straight
up caustic. “Do you know the comedian Carrot Top?” “Yes, horrible.” “Well, you are like the Carrot Top of interviewers.” “Ooh…” Although Eisenberg claimed it was a compliment,
Puga responded: “I’m going to go cry now.” “No, don’t cry now. Cry after the interview is over ’cause otherwise,
I’ll look like I’m responsible for it.” In a now-deleted Tumblr post titled “Jesse
Eisenberg isn’t very nice,” Puga claimed she was quote, “humiliated” by the star. In 2005, the universe gifted us with a very
sour Tom Cruise. “I will talk about what I want to talk about,
and I won’t talk about what I don’t want to talk about.” In an interview with Matt Lauer on NBC’s Today
Show, we got to see Cruise rattle off his knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry,
and we use the term “knowledge” loosely. “I’ve never agreed with psychiatry. Ever…Psychiatry is, it’s a pseudoscience” Lauer kept talking about people he knew who
were helped by medication, including Brooke Shields, who took antidepressants for postpartum
depression, but Cruise kept shutting him down. “There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance…Matt,
you’re glib. You don’t even know what Ritalin is.” Put this interview up there in the Tom Cruise
Interview Hall of Infamy…right next to that couch-jump next to Oprah. It’s no secret that the heroines in Quentin
Tarantino’s flicks are habitually and graphically abused and injured. The Daily Beast even dedicated an entire article
to highlighting disturbing behavior the filmmaker allegedly directed towards female actors. Despite the fact that violence seems to string
together all of this films, the director wasn’t so thrilled to be asked about it on KRON 4
News while promoting Kill Bill: Volume 1. During the interview, Tarantino insisted that
12-year-olds accompanied by their parents, should see his R-rated film, claiming it’s
empowering to girls. The interviewer strongly disagreed, claiming
that Kill Bill encouraged real-life violence, and asking, “Why the need for so much gruesome, graphic
violence? Why not let us imagine a little of it?” “Because it’s so much fun, Jan. Get it!” The director then added, “Ah, but you see Jan, you’re all messed up
because you’re talking about real-life, and I’m talking about the movies.” Tarantino then yelled about how kids should
be able to tell the difference between fake and real violence. But in a New York Times interview, actress
Uma Thurman claimed the director quote, “persuaded” her to do a stunt in a car that she felt was
too dangerous. She ended up crashing and permanently injuring
her neck. Robert Downey Jr. wanted absolutely nothing
to do with the personal questions asked by Krishnan Guru-Murthy during the press rounds
for Avengers: Age of Ultron. Nonetheless, the interviewer decided to do
a deep dive. “I don’t know how comfortable you, you know,
are talking about yourself.” As soon as the interviewer brought up the
actor’s father and his past relationship with alcohol and drugs, Downey Jr. flew out of
there faster than Iron Man. “I really don’t, what are we doing?” “Well, I’m just asking questions, that’s all.” “Right. Bye.” In an interview with Howard Stern, Downey
Jr. admitted he wished he’d left the interview even sooner, saying, “This has nothing to do with your creepy,
dark agenda that I’m feeling, all of a sudden, like, ashamed and obligated to accommodate
your weirdo s—…What I have to do in the future is give myself permission to say, ‘That
is more than likely a syphilitic parasite and I need to distance myself from this clown.'” Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. I thought Larry King wasn't asking a question as much as reinforcing a fact in a legitimate manor for an interviewer. The only problem I saw was Jerry acting like a dickhead.

  2. Taylor Swift complaining about how the tabloids are making her out to be boy crazy and her first 25 songs were all about boys lol!

  3. Lovely how RDJs dark past doesn't have anything to do with the movie he's promoting and the interviewer still tries to ask such questions…. Good decision to walk out of there. It's bad enough that big celebs can't really hide everything from their private lives anyway – even if it doesn't concern anybody but themselves and maybe family + friends. Give people some rest, ffs

  4. Thanks for not actually showing any of the actual full clips. I. Am sure we all much prefer your yammering over the actual videos…. Terrible.

  5. jerry signfield is a jerk seriously why does he have so many fans he treats them like shit on top f this hes a craddle robber how are these guys any diff than r kelly? yeah they are white.

  6. No wonder the actors or stars get so annoyed they get asked questions that have nothing to do with what there getting interviewed about

  7. 1:25 the only one stupid here was seinfeld… he could've just answered the harmless question and move on! What a jerk!
    5:37 XD duuuuude… pack your stuff right there and bounce out, cause you got served!

  8. The guy that interviewed Robert Downey Jr, is , was and will always be a complete Bellend. He done the same kind of thing with other celebrities also. RDJ should have just left the moment the interview went off topic.

  9. Taylor Swift did no "shredding." If anything, she was the epitome of aplomb and cool in her reply. Good for her.

  10. Seriously….I've seen this footage of Seinfeld and King before; with the same narrative…"Jerry got upset". That is such CRAP. During his interview, Jerry was JUST Jerry; sarcasm IS his game, and he is the best! Y'all need to get off of it.

  11. Honestly didnt feel that the one with Rashida Jones needed to be included..i dont think she was annoyed, nor do I think the interviewers were being intentionally disrespectful, or ignorant..i think it was an innocent comment..

  12. I knew at 4 years old The Three Stooges weren’t really hurting each other. AND I didn’t become the slightest bit violent.

  13. Jesse Eisenberg is an asshole?!
    Jk, of course he is. But that interview was disgusting, he shouldn't be working.

  14. Omg I CANT with Tom cruise. What a jack wagon!!! No such thing as Psychicatry? Does he understand how many people, like lauer referenced, have been actually helped by medication? Does he realize it has saved peoples lives? Does he realize how many people he’s making mad and how many people likely dislike him for all of this crap? His is by far the worst but no because of lauer!!! Ugh!!

  15. People are always like "celebs are snobs and are rude" and then I watched an interview where someone asks "what are you wearing under your costume?" and another person asking a celebrity about his dark past. Id be rude too if I was promoting art and someone only wanted to know "how I fit into a cat suit" or "so what drugs did you do".

  16. ’s very inhuman when a celebrity work there ass off to put on a good show for people like go on boot camps, learn martial arts, starve themselves and some even get cancer because of the weight changes, most interviewers just want a nasty gossips for people to judge them! that’s low. No wonder most of them are depress! Not only are interviewers dehumanizing them, but also spreading negativity! Turning people bad. The world doesn’t need anymore negativity.. .

  17. I'm sure all of them were akward. But, how many times I wished to do exactly what Robert Jr. did. Just say goodbye and run so fast away😞

  18. Omg, Seinfeld didn't rip Larry King to shreds. Larry was asking a question in a polite manner, and it had a decent answer. Seinfeld could just explain like a normal person would do what the situation was. Instead he went on another self important ego rant, trying to justify his existence. The fact that his show ran for so many years only proves how many people have shit taste in humor and comedy, because he's as funny as an old fucking shoe. And an asshole to boot, pun intended.

  19. Next time people are being rude like this, I'll ask myself: "Does this situation call for Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, or RDJ?"

  20. I remember the Tom Cruise interview… it happened when someone close to me was going through a very tough time with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder. A psychiatrist visited the person in the hospital (yeah, it was that bad), and he prescribed a little medicine. 3 days later this person was good as new. Tom Cruise would probably have suggested vitamin C or some other nonsense that wouldn't have worked. In the end, there was a chemical imbalance in a young person's brain as they were going through puberty that had to be corrected with chemicals. Scientology is a pseudo religion run by a dangerous group of idiots.

  21. Tom Cruz is a midget and has a big problem with it and that’s because short people have no reason to exist with a two inches Dickson matter how much money they have stashed in their rear piggy bank they enjoy nothing of their life
    Mentality level of a voter or a homo with cancer in their colon and their managers forcing to participate to gang bangs …suicide is their only way out …if not a physical one ! A mental one is a fact locked in their cage shifting a brick regretting the path the follow to waist their lives

  22. Bunch of hypocrites don’t know if they’re going or coming ! Checking themselves if they there with them that’s why they participate on gang bangs to make believe they part of their fake and bogus game

  23. You have lost the ball jewmericans unless you’re a pedofile and rapeyour own kids as your president did with the best woman of his life he ever came across none else but that ugly unisexual daughter of his !
    You will find out as he says witch way along with Vatican and crown how you earn the medal of syphilis the soonest before his term is over since he will go bankrupt once again losing the game as a president

  24. First of all they are stars in a position which these questions are going to be asked. This is part of their profession. If they don't want to be asked stupid questions get out of the business.

  25. Cara Delevigne just looked like a weirdo. She should have just walked away if she was going to blow the interview over the Carla thing. The other people in this Video had it way worse than she did. The woman may have been a little tongue tied it certainly wasn't intentional like the other Interviewers. They just got wacky because of how she was acting.

  26. Everybody in the comments section seem to get everything right except for Jerry Seinfeld being a jerk and that Jim Everett was right. Everett can learn to be classy like Anne hathaway or witty like Jerry.

  27. Tom Cruise is mentally ill. He doesn't understand basic things. He believes in outrageous things. By the way chemical imbalance does exist. I should know I have studied science and biology also I have suffered through clinical depression which is a chemical imbalance of dopamine and other chemicals. At the time I needed medication to help get me through suicidal symptoms. Thank God for mental health and medication I survived. Now I am free from depression and medication because I learned how to deal.

  28. I was gonna say… Tom says “There is no such thing as a chemical imbalance” I seemed to remember him jumping up on Oprah’s couch like a nut himself. 🙄

  29. Tip to interviews:

    Dont talk about a celebritys/persons private or personal life it's just goning to get awkward and kinda embarrassing so just dont.

    Also just talk about the things that the interview is based on ex: movie, singing, dancing, tour, etc. Just STAY on TOPIC done ask questions like…oh you lost a lot of weight just to fit into the cat suit. Was it tight?

    Like dont ask that just dont also dont ask about the celebritys past addictions like why would they want to be reminded of a time they wish they could forget that's like me saying oh your cat died 1 week ago right so…how did it die?… I mean depending on the person and how much they loved their cat that question can be kinda emotional so just ask thing RELATED TO THE TOPIC 🙄

  30. Tom Cruise is an actor not the end-all he thinks he is for mental health care. How dare someone with that much influence makes such disparaging comments with all the people hanging on with the help they are getting. Tom needs help from those he refuses to acknowledge

  31. These interviews are just a sample of the many bad ones on YouTube. I have to blame the interviewers much of the time. That said the celebrities should understand that often times these are ambush situations and be prepared to just walk out.

  32. So why is the Tom Cruise thing in here? He surely didn’t rip Matt Lauer to shreds. He hasn’t a clue about psychiatric care or what good it does and all he did was make himself look foolish and brainwashed by Scientology

  33. Jesus f**** Christyou have to be kidding me. Just because Taylor Swift gets a little pissy when someone calls her out for being boy crazy doesn't mean she's not. She holds down relationships like a homeless person hold down a job… I wish this b** would come out of her Fantasyland admit she has issues and work on them instead of try to play the victim through every aspect of her f**** life she's the most pathetic f**** piece of garbage I've ever seen in my life

  34. Totally would have done the same as Jim Everett. That was a setup from the get go and Rome got exactly what he deserved, although Jim should have hit him

  35. Seinfeld is overrated..no where close to the funniest or the phrase do you know who I am. As a comedian I give him a 5 and I'm pretty sure he knows that. Hes a tv funny not a movie star

  36. Tom Cruise is a freaking weirdo idiot who worships a fictitious space character sooooo…… Who really is going to put much stock into anything he has to say?🤪 He’s a load of 💩
