Celebrities have to do so much press, and not all of it is fun. Especially when the person interviewing them is essentially a tool, asking inappropriate questions or making rude comments. There are few things quite as fun to watch as when an interview goes awry and the interviewer gets owned hard by the interviewee. For example, Megyn Kelly recently asked feminist icon Jane Fonda about her plastic surgery while Fonda was on her show to promote a film. It wasn't the smoothest move.
