Celebrity interviews are a major way for them to promote their projects. They can give the public insight into both their roles and their real selves. However, sometimes these interviews go hilariously wrong.
While some interviews may not have been seen as problematic initially, they are now considered completely unacceptable due to increased awareness of racial and gender inequality brought about by social movements like BlackLivesMatter, MeToo, and TimesUp.
These interviews feature instances like guests making misogynistic comments, hosts asking inappropriate questions, or engaging in bizarre behavior. For example, Vin Diesel going down on his knees to approach an attractive reporter, an actress being questioned about her underwear in a movie, or Letterman sucking on an actress’ hair. We have compiled a list of the most problematic and controversial interviews of all time.
Rihanna Was Asked By A Journalist What She Was Looking For In The Next Man
In a list of great comebacks by Rihanna, one memorable instance stands out. During an interview, a journalist asked Rihanna, “What are you looking for in the next man?” Rihanna, a bit taken aback, leaned closer to the journalist to make sure she heard it correctly. With confidence, she responded, “Pardon?” The journalist repeated the question, and Rihanna fearlessly replied, “I’m not looking for a man. Let’s start there.”
Jimmy Kimmel Cackled When Megan Fox Shared A Story About Her Role As An Extra In Bad Boys 2
Megan Fox recently shared a story about a challenging role she had when she was only 15 years old, and Jimmy Kimmel had quite the reaction to it. It happened during an episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live” back in 2009. Megan explained that since she was underage and couldn’t legally sit at a bar or have a drink, the director, Michael Bay, came up with an unconventional idea. He suggested dressing her in a small bikini, high heels, and a cowboy hat instead.
In that particular scene, Megan Fox had to be “soaked wet” under a waterfall. Megan mentioned that it offered a glimpse into the director Michael Bay’s way of thinking. However, during the interview, Jimmy Kimmel made an inappropriate comment, suggesting that everyone has similar thoughts but he chooses to repress them unlike Bay.
Recently, the interview resurfaced on Twitter after 11 years, and the public expressed shock at Kimmel’s reaction and his apparent approval of Fox’s anecdote, given that she was a minor at the time.
