Hollywood may be the land of make-believe, and celebrity interviews might often be nothing more than shameless self-promotion and fluff, yet on rare occasions, some performers have been known to give fiercely honest answers to interview questions. This is partly because, quite often, actors are on interminably long press junkets when they're promoting projects and get asked the same inane questions over and over. Just look at Lady Gaga's "100 people in a room" monologue.

But once in a while, actors are naturally going to slip off script - sometimes during particularly awkward celebrity interviews - and answer a question with unexpected honesty. In a way, it's refreshing to hear a celeb share real talk and not the media-friendly tripe their publicist is pushing.
