jerry seinfeld

In 2007, Larry King asked Jerry Seinfeld about his self-titled sitcom: "They didn't cancel you, you canceled them?" Seinfeld ridiculed King for being “under the impression that I got canceled,” citing “Seinfeld’s” viewership stats and even pulling out the classic line, “Do you know who I am?”


At the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, a reporter pressed Tom Hardy to go into detail about his sexuality. Hardy believes in de-stigmatizing discussion of sexuality, but felt he was being put on the spot to get a “salacious” reaction, so he rightfully blew the question off.

anne hathaway

While promoting “The Dark Knight Rises,” Anne Hathaway dismissed a reporter’s invasive questions about her body and how she fits into her Catwoman costume. Hathaway kept things light, jokingly asking the interviewer if he was trying to fit into a catsuit himself.

scarlett johansson

Scarlett Johansson got the same “superhero” treatment as Anne Hathaway. When asked if she was able to wear undergarments in her Black Widow costume, Johansson said she’d been asked that inappropriate question multiple times, and remarked, “What kind of interview is this?"

mike tyson

While interviewing Mike Tyson in 2014, Nathan Downer brought up the fact that Tyson is a convicted rapist. Tyson told Downer “f**k you” and “you're actually a piece of s**t,” which got Downer’s network in trouble with the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council.
