(Newser) – Ever wondered which celebrities are a lot nicer on screen than they are in person? The Frisky staffers share stories of the meanest celebs they’ve met:

  • Jennifer Lopez: “Banished” a reporter who wasn’t “established enough” to interview her—the reporter later found out J.Lo “demanded a ridiculous number of Jo Malone candles every day to help her channel her muse or some crap.”
  • Bill Cosby: “Apparently Bill thought that my questions were stupid because at one point he condescendingly asked me which college I went to. The subtext was very clearly that he thought I was a moron. I never ate another Pudding Pop after that.”

  • Ben Folds: “He decided we should make the interview about Carole King, who I know nothing about. So basically, it was an excuse to treat me like I was a moron for 30 minutes.”
  • Danny Glover: “He punched my friend, who’s an AP photographer, in the face.”
  • Nicole Richie: “This was before she had the big ‘makeover.’ She was a rude beyotch and brought her little dogs to the shoot and gave the shortest answers possible.”

naw they might not be jerks. its just that interviewers are obviously very in your face when asking questions, and paparazzi i think are just people who feed off of misery and hatred of others. in other words, most politicians.
