(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.”
