Since 2007, the popular British talk show “The Graham Norton Show” has been interviewing celebrities and often exposing some hard truths about them. One of these celebs was none other than Madonna, the Queen of Pop herself. Apparently, once, while being interviewed on the show, she was asked about respected British actor Sir Ian McKellen, and the diva had nothing but rude things to say.
Then, she had completely forgotten that they had met at a charity event and even done some acting together in the past. The whole episode did not go down well with fans, and truly, who could ever say a bad word about Ian McKellen?!
Jesse Eisenberg Isn’t a Talk Show Host Favorite
It’s clear that much like his portrayal of Zuckerberg in “The Social Network,” actor Jesse Eisenberg is more of the introvert type. However, that doesn’t give him an excuse to be rude and humiliate anyone, as he did during his infamous 2013 interview with journalist Romina Puga.
Eisenberg was promoting his hit film “Now You See Me,” and Puga hosted him on her show. She asked him to perform a magic trick and say her name to the camera, which Puga did with all of her interviewees. Eisenberg joked about Puga’s “basic interview style” and “bland questions written on her hand”. He also told her she was on “his time” and not the other way around. All in all, Puga said she was “humiliated” and called him a jerk. Yikes!
Jon Hamm Is a Cold Meanie
Ever since he played the enigmatic, handsome madman Don Draper in “Mad Men,” Jon Hamm has been steadily climbing the Hollywood ladder. Hamm is a phenomenal actor, but much like his Draper character, many of the roles under his belt make him seem a bit cold. And apparently, according to celebrity know-it-all and brutally honest comedienne Kathy Griffin, Hamm is as cold and as mean as Don Draper.
Griffin recalled meeting Hamm at a party once and said he was “one of the rudest people I’ve met.” The outspoken comedienne said Hamm was trying to be funny and made a joke about Griffin being old, prompting her to respond, “You’re a mean douchebag.” For Griffin, Hamm is pretty much summed up by this: “one of these hot guys who's mildly funny but actually thinks he's comedian-level funny.” Yikes!
Jamie Foxx Offended His Coworkers
He may be a huge Hollywood star now, but like many other actors/comedians of his generation, Jamie Foxx started his career in a comedy sketch show in 1990 – the beloved “In Living Color.” Amongst a hilarious cast, one of the comedians on the roster was Tommy Davidson, who apparently had some not-so-nice things to say about Foxx.
Davidson recounted how, once on the show, Foxx thought it would be funny to rip his underwear off and leave him naked on the set. And this was just one of the many jokes Foxx played at the expense of his fellow comedian. Davidson remembers being “extremely offended and humiliated.” It’s one thing to have a dry sense of humor, but it’s another thing entirely to make a coworker feel bad.
Megan Fox Got Replaced for Being Difficult
The stunning Megan Fox got her acting breakthrough with the role of Mikaela Banes in the hit 2007 blockbuster “Transformers.” Everybody was all over the young star, and obviously, she got cast for the second installation of “Transformers” in 2009. But fame had gone to her head by then, and things didn’t quite work out on set.
According to crew members, Fox and director Michael Bay were not seeing eye to eye, with the young actress claiming he was “a nightmare to work for.” In turn, Bay said it was Fox who was incredibly difficult to work with, and his crew agreed. Things got so bad that Bay decided to replace Fox altogether for the third and subsequent “Transformers” films, giving the role to Rosie Huntington Whitely.
