While many throw tantrums, these celebrities respond to intrusive interviewers by cutting them short
Off the leash
Jonathan Hyla called his interview with Cate Blanchett the a�?best worst interviewa�� he has ever done. One to stand up for what she believes in, Blanchett stalked off the show, The Project, which was to see her speak about Cinderellaa�� in which she played the wicked step-mother. Instead of asking film-related questions, Hyla insisted on talking about the stara��s favourite drink and other off-topic subjects. In an effort to start over, the Oscar-winning actor shook his hand again, signalling that he change his tone. But Hyla ignored her and asked, a�?How were you able to get that cat to do what you wanted to on a leash? I try to put my girlfrienda��s cat on a leash and it just never works for me.a�? He was, referring to a scene in a film. To which, Blanchett replied, a�?Thata��s your question? Thata��s your f***ing question?a�?, before leaving the interview.
On Aussie radio show, Kyle & Jackie O, to promote her film Sex Tape, Cameron Diaz walked off to protest rude comments made about her best friend, Drew Barrymore. While talking about Diaza��s daughter in the film being similar to a young Barrymore, host Kyle Sandilands quipped, a�?Leta��s hope she misses out on the Barrymore drug years because those were a great thing to watch but not so good to be in, Ia��d imagine.a�? Unimpressed Diaz jumped to her frienda��s defence, saying, a�?Ia��m sure Kyle, youa��ve never been through a drug phase, have you? Or alcoholism or anything like that? Pretty cleana�� always did it right? Congratulations.a�? Despite the host trying to bring up Benji Madden (then her boyfriend), Diaz wrapped things up and left.
Cara for a nap?
She might be wowing on the ramp and on magazines, but Cara Delevingne needs a break. She was to be interviewed by Vogue Americaa��s Plum Sykes, who eventually wrote, a�?Dear reader, to misquote Oscar Wilde, can I say that to oversleep once for a Vogue interview may be regarded as a misfortune, but to oversleep twice looks like carelessness?a�?, referring to the other time when the model fell asleep. With a lack of material, Sykes wrote about the modela��sA� sleeping patterns and how, when she woke up at the end of the allotted time, she said, a�?Ia��m so sorry! I fall asleep everywhere,a�? and didna��t bother to reschedule. Hitting back, Delevingne tweeted: a�?a�?All I can say is that I work extremely hard and a�?sleepinga�� is proof that sometimes I work too hard. I apologise for being so ambitious.a�?
Two weeks ago, Kim Richards was on an interview with Dr Phil, after the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star was arrested for public intoxication and abuse of a police officer. But she stormed off when things got too personal. Fighting back tears, the 50-year-old reality star admitted to struggling with sobriety, but when Dr Phil asked, a�?Are you living a lie telling everybody, a�?Ia��ve been sober for three years?a�� You are drunk in a bar fighting with a cop. That is not good mothering!a�? When her kids join her on the couch, she gets exasperated exclaiming, a�?Is this an intervention? Ia��m sorry, I cana��t!a�? As she stormed off, saying she felt cornered by her kids and the host, she was seen screaming and cursing obscenities.

He went on to pry until the actor gave up when asked if hea��s been able to fight his demons. He also brought up the actora��s father and son. As he was leaving, Downey Jr could be heard saying, a�?Ia��m sorry, I really dona��t… what are we doing?
