When a reporter asked why Justin Timberlake moved to acting instead of being content as a singer, Mila Kunis handed out the smack down of the century (in Russian nonetheless). Why not??? All the while, Timberlake sits there awkwardly as his gal pal sticks up for him.
The fun begins at 19 seconds in.

A reporter kind of assumed that Matt Damon only works hard in order to have job security, not because he has determination or drive. Bad move. Damon not only proved her wrong, but he used vocabulary that even Will Hunting wouldn't understand. Dem apples go to Damon!
The fun starts about 34 seconds in.

The Big Bang Theory star Mayim Bialik had the best response ever when a reporter stupidly assumed she didn't know how to do the calculus equations that are featured on the show. Not only can she do calculus, but she's a neuroscientist and has a Ph.D.! Awkward!

In one of the most cringe-worthy interviews ever, Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy delved deep into Robert Downey Jr.'s past with awkward results. RDJ was being interviewed as part of the press junket for his new movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron when Gugu-Murthy's questions suddenly veered into the personal... and strange.
Gugu-Murthy asked about a statement RDJ made in 2008 about how his stint in prison affected his politics. Downey didn't want to talk about it, saying, "I could pick that apart for two hours and be no closer to the truth than giving you some half-arsed answer right now."
And it didn't stop there. When Gugu-Murthy asked about Downey's history of drug abuse and his relationship with his father, Downey decided to cut the interview short and walked out on the reporter.
