6 Hilariously Awkward Interviews With Your Favorite Movie Stars (VIDEO)

YouTube isn’t just full of cats and unnecessary jump cuts. You can find pretty much anything on the site, including the awkward interviews you see below. This list could have easily been 50 videos long, but I didn’t want to hit you with everything at once.

Did you know you can die from too much awesomeness? Seriously. It’s happened before. You have to ease into sh-t like this.

Watch the six videos below, and then please step away from your computer. Take a walk, drink some water, and finish things off with a nap.

 

 No. 6 – Bruce Willis Has Been Doing This For Too Long

Bruce is known for acting like a dick during interviews. This is probably one of his worst. I also remember a radio interview he did that was horribly awkward. Apparently, someone from the radio station was taking photos of him (for their website) during the interview, and Mr. Willis didn’t appreciate it. He stopped the interview and berated the poor lady.

The woman, “Psycho” Shanon, was actually diagnosed with a non-malignant brain tumor a few years ago, and can you guess what she named her tumor? Bruce Willis.

 

 No. 5 – Zach Galifianakis Meets Gordon Keith

Have you watched Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis? Sure you have. It’s hilarious, and in this interview, Zach meets radio host Gordon Keith, who started doing awkward interviews before it was the cool thing to do.

The interview he did with Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard is one of my favorites. Check it out by clicking this link.

 

 No. 4 – Jesse Eisenberg Tries To Flirt?

I’m still not sure about this interview. Was he flirting with the extremely beautiful reporter? Was he simply being an asshole? Was it all an act? I think the most likely answer is that he was trying to flirt with her.

In an interview a month after the video you see above went viral, Jesse explained that he had no idea the video went viral until somebody called and told him.

“I wasn’t, until somebody called me and told me. But people write mean things about people on the internet even if they’re not in movies… I just don’t ever read stuff about myself, otherwise you’ll never leave the house.”

 

 No. 3 – Sean Connery Enjoys Slapping Women

20 years later and Sean Connery still thinks slapping women is acceptable. At least he’s consistent?

 

 No. 2 – Kristen Wiig And Bill Hader’s Laugh

You could insert Bill Hader’s laugh into anything, and it would automatically make that thing funny. Funerals, that sad scene in Air Bud, nursing homes, etc.

Bill’s laugh is the best medicine.

 

No. 1 – The Master

We all remember this, right? You can’t forget it. David Letterman had several awkward moments as the host of The Late Show, but this one might be the most memorable. Of course, Letterman handled it like a pro. Late night television won’t be the same without him.

6 Talented Stars Who Were Fired From Big Movies

Have you ever been fired? Of course you have! But you shouldn’t be ashamed. It happens to everyone, even people who are actually good at their job.

Things happen, you know? Maybe your boss hates you. Maybe the company just can’t afford to keep you on. Maybe you accidentally started a small kitchen fire on your first day of work, and then tried to blame it on the owner’s dog…sorry this is getting personal now.

Let’s get to the celebrities…

6. Sylvester Stallone – “Beverly Hills Cop”

The Role: Axel Foley

Why He Was Fired: Stallone wanted the film to be filled with action. He has said that his version of the script “would have looked like the opening scene from Saving Private Ryan on the beaches of Normandy.” But Paramount didn’t like the changes because they were too expensive to produce. Two weeks before filming, Stallone left and was replaced with Eddie Murphy.

5. Megan Fox – “Transformers 3”

The Role: Mikaela Banes

Why She Was Fired: After starring in the first two ‘Transformers‘ films, everyone assumed Megan Fox would be back for the third movie in the franchise. But after comparing director Michael Bay to Hitler in an interview, she was fired and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley was hired. Of course, Fox and Bay have worked things out since their public battle. Working together on the terrible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles remake.

4. Judy Garland – “Valley of the Dolls”

The Role: Helen Lawson

Why She Was Fired: According to the reports, Judy was fired after she showed up on set drunk. She was fired and replaced with Academy Award-winning actress Susan Hayward. We should note there are several different stories on what really happened. Some people claim the production team hated Garland, some people say she was unhappy with the script, etc. Being drunk at work makes for a better story though.

3. Anne Hathaway – “Knocked Up”

The Role: Alison Scott

Why She Was Fired: Okay, so technically she wasn’t fired, but the original plan was to give the lead female role to her. Reports say she and Judd Apatow disagreed on a particular scene in the movie. The actress claims she couldn’t accept the role “because it was going to show a vagina — not mine, but somebody else’s. And I didn’t believe that it was actually necessary to the story.” Katherine Heigl replaced her.

2. Stuart Townsend – “Lord of the Rings”

The Role: Aragorn

Why He Was Fired: Poor Townsend was training for his role in the movie for two months, and then was fired just one day before filming began. According to Townsend, he was fired because the director wanted someone older than him. He says he has no good feelings for the people in charge, “After that I was told they wouldn’t pay me because I was in breach of contract due to not having worked long enough. I had been having a rough time with them, so I was almost relieved to be leaving until they told me I wouldn’t be paid.” Viggo Mortensen ended up getting the part.

1. Ryan Gosling – “The Lovely Bones”

The Role: Jack Salmon

Why He Was Fired: It’s hard to believe someone fired Ryan Gosling, but Peter Jackson did it after Gosling decided he needed to gain 60 pounds to play the part of the grieving father. He claims he drank melted cartons of ice cream to gain the weight. “I really believed he should be 210 pounds.” Ryan said. But Jackson disagreed, which left Gosling, in his own words, “fat and unemployed.” Mark Wahlberg replaced him.
