    I’m not a Joan Rivers fan but it seems like the interviewer just didn’t like her from the start and she is using smiling as sarcasm?

    What about Joaquin Phoenix? There’s an interview where the interviewer basically baits him and messes with him and he has absolutely none of it. He doesn’t go back at the interviewer directly but he does look very mad and then just walks away.
    I saw it in a video called Joaquin Phoenix appears aggressive to journalist.

    Most of these are not meltdowns, though. Just interviewer that didn't know when to stop, or just ignoring the instructions they were given.

    The guy interviewing Tarantino has a reputation for pissing people off. He asks personal questions he knows will get a reaction. Even after Tarantino says no, he keeps pressing the same subject, so it’s no wonder the guy gets mad.

    Is it just me or are they taking the journalists and interviewers side on all of these. None of these including kanyes is a breakdown. Kanye just listed his role models and who he wants to be like.

    Yap, yap, yap. What an annoying voice, and we get more of that than we get actual footage. Look, you're not the star. Stop telling us what happened and SHOW us what happened. You talk 3 times as much as the tiny little bits of video you show us. Spend most of the time showing us the full clips, and LESS time blabbing away about what you're not showing us. We don't need you to explain. Just show us. Longer clips, less of you, please.

    Tarentino lit up the same dude Robert Downey jr. did. I don't find that a coincidence.

    NIK DA GREEK 4 months ago

    people can say what they will but I love Mel Gibson, hes an awesome actor and equally great director. We all have problems we all make mistakes. And as far as racism goes, the dude grew up in a different time, he like all of us looks up to his elders and believes they know best. So because of it making racial slurs while intoxicated does NOT make him a racist. He could of simply register in his mind something someone said offensive and repeated it while incoherent. Hes a talented man who was hurt because of his money hungry bitch wife who was using him. Now hes remarried happy and everyone that works with him loves him. Hes right that guy was an asshole leave the past alone. I im a drug addict whos 10 years sober, if I have success within the next few years am I going to like it if one of you post a comment asking me how will the public perceive me since I was a junkie???? im going to call you an asshole

    Mel had every right to be pissed. That was a loaded question and honestly I’m sick of how certain media outlets portray celebrity addicts and alcoholics as sideshow attractions! Especially when they have gotten clean and sober! Fair question?? Fuck off!

    Mel Gibson is just trying to move on. People are such hypocrites they act like they have never said or done anything they don't regret they are just flawless I guess. But if they're lives were under a fine tooth comb half of the people in the world would be ashamed
