“That’s your question?” “What are we doing?” ”I’m going.” “F—k all of you!” These are just a few of the expressions used by some of our favorite — and usually cooperative — celebrities who have epically walked out of an interview.
Remember when ABC’s Dan Harris asked Paris Hilton in 2011 if she ever worries that her “moment has passed” or if she feels “overshadowed by Kim Kardashian”? Well, we do. It was amazing because the socialite and reality star-turned-DJ up and bailed on the interview after giving her publicist an awkward side-glance and the most perfect laugh.
Cate Blanchett, however, might be the baddest interview-ditcher of all. After a reporter at a Cinderella junket asked her about getting a cat in the live-action film to obey on a leash (you read that right), she fired back: “That’s your f--king question?“
Things also got awkward — and volatile — when Gary Coleman appeared on The Insider in 2010. After guest panelist Lisa Bloom, an attorney, questioned the star about his reportedly tumultuous relationship with now ex-wife Susan Price, the Diff’rent Strokes alum blew up and before declaring “f—k all of you!” jetted off the set. “Gary, come back,” Bloom attempted, to which Coleman shouted, “No, f—k you!”
And we shall forever remember when Robert Downey Jr. walked out of his extremely awkward and cringeworthy 2015 interview. It all went down after Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy attempted to ask the Iron Man actor about his “dark periods.” Let’s just say it ended with RDJ calling him a “schmuck.”
