10+ Times Celebrities Showed Their Undeniable Wit During an Interview

year ago

In an attempt to get some sensational news, reporters and TV hosts often ask actors and musicians different uncomfortable questions. But sometimes they cross the line, making celebrities feel confused or even embarrassed. However, the heroes of our article know how to get off the hook and answer these awkward questions with impeccable wit.

Scarlett Johansson wasn’t taken off guard by a question about underwear.


In an interview dedicated to the release of The Avengers, Scarlett Johansson was asked whether she wore any undergarments under her latex costume. But the actress immediately put the interviewer down by saying, “You’re the fifth person who’s asking me this.”

Taken aback, the host tried to explain himself, but the actress continued, “What is going on? Since when have people started asking each other about underwear?”

Jonah Hill made it clear that he wasn’t interested in talking about his weight.

During Jonah Hill’s press conference, a reporter couldn’t stop asking him about his weight loss. Hill replied that he just decided to start leading a healthy lifestyle, but the reporter continued, “Are you still considered a fat guy when you go to a party or anything?” Hill looked pretty flabbergasted about the question but then smiled and asked, “Do you have any other smarter questions?”

Anne Hathaway clearly didn’t want to discuss her body.


Anne Hathaway was giving an interview about the movie, The Dark Knight Rises, but for some reason, the host was really interested in her Catwoman costume, so he asked, “The form-fitting costume of Catwoman requires a perfect body. What was your fitness regimen, like diet, exercise, this kind of thing?” At first, Hathaway tried to hint to her interviewer that she didn’t find this topic interesting. She joked that Batman’s costume was more uncomfortable than hers because it covered the actor’s ears.

But the host continued to push the topic forward. Eventually, the actress was obviously fed up with these questions and asked in return, “Are you trying to lose weight? What’s the deal? You look great!” And when the host tried to convince her otherwise, she continued, “We have to talk about this. Are you trying to fit in the Catwoman suit? It’s going to take about 10 months.”

Paris Hilton knows how to finish an unpleasant conversation.

During an interview, Paris Hilton was telling a reporter about the unsettling consequences of fame, which included stalking. She also revealed that she planned to leave her image of a silly blonde with a childish voice behind.

But suddenly, the interviewer started asking her about Kim Kardashian and whether she envied her popularity. And when he received “no” for an answer, he wouldn’t give up, asking, “Do you ever worry that your moment has passed?” Hilton decided that it was worthless to continue this conversation, so she got up and left.

Celine Dion put the TV host down after she asked her an impolite question.

While having a conversation with Celine Dion, a popular TV show host picked up a magazine and showed the singer’s family photo with her little son in it and said, “Look at him, he’s beautiful, but look at his hair. When are you going to cut that hair?

But Celine was quick with an answer, saying, “You know, people will always find something to be unhappy about. If I give him a short haircut, everyone will start asking, ’Why so short?’” The host immediately changed the topic and started talking about music.

Jason Momoa knows that humor can neutralize any criticism.

Even athletes like Jason Momoa aren’t safe from body shaming. After some Internet users began to shame the actor for having a “dad bod,” journalists immediately informed Momoa about that.

It didn’t take Momoa much time to come up with an ingenious answer. “If you’re patient enough, I’ll proudly put more dad bod on display soon,” he said.

Emma Stone didn’t let reporters devalue her achievements.


After Emma Stone won an Oscar for Best Actress in the movie, La La Land, she was asked, “Do you feel like owing Emma Watson a drink or dinner to thank her for turning down the role in the movie?” According to rumors, Watson was the first choice for this role, and the reporter decided to talk about this in an impolite manner.

Despite her apparent shock, Stone handled the situation with grace, answering, “Oh my god, you know what? She’s doing great. She’s the coolest. She’s Belle. Right? I mean, I think it’s all good. I think she’s amazing.” According to the same rumors, Watson turned down the role in La La Land in favor of Beauty and the Beast.

Emily Blunt is not that easy to corner.

Right after the release of the movie, Edge of Tomorrow, where Blunt starred opposite Tom Cruise, a reporter decided to remind her about the interview that she had given a few years earlier. In 2005, she said, “I would rather take horribly paid theater gigs for the rest of my life before ever taking a role as a spear carrier in a Tom Cruise movie.”

And when the reporter brought it up in a new interview with the celebrity, she laughed and replied, “That is so funny. Well, at least I’m not a spear carrier.” After that, she complimented Tom Cruise for his acting, implying that people can change their views over time.

Mariah Carey decided against accepting a dubious compliment.

Mariah Carey was approached by a reporter on the red carpet of an award ceremony to receive a rather weird compliment: “Everyone says that you gained weight. You did not. You look fabulous!”

The singer didn’t get confused and responded, “Who says that? You? If you say it, then it has to be true.”

Sandra Bullock knows how to laugh off awkward questions.

Sandra Bullock was giving an interview about her newest movie, The Proposal, and suddenly the TV host fired off, “The major thing that has changed since the last time you were here is that I’ve now seen you naked.

The actress replied, “I’m so sorry about that. Were you able to sleep afterward?” and tried to change the topic, but the host returned to it again and again, and at the end of the interview, he said, “Did I mention you had a nude scene in the movie?” After that, Bullock laughed and said that she’d never come to his studio again.

Dakota Johnson was asked about the missing gap in her teeth, and she definitely knew what to say in return.

On Jimmy Fallon’s show, the host asked Dakota Johnson a rather impolite question: “People would like to know why the gap in your teeth is not there anymore.”

The actress laughed and replied, “Well, the fact that this is a newsworthy event in the world right now is pretty weird to me.” But Fallon insisted on a response, so the actress explained that she had had a permanent retainer since the age of 13, which caused pain in her neck, so she had it removed, and the gap closed by itself. And then she said, “I’m sad about my tooth gap too. So I’d really appreciate some privacy at this time.”
