Bruce Willis and His Interview

<< < (2/8) > >>

Hillia:
Any minimum wage clerk at McDonalds would be told that they need to treat each customer as if they were the first one of the day...no matter how many times they have to say,  'I'm sorry, we don't carry the mcrib any more' they need to maintain the same professional, friendly attitude, through headaches, pre-shift fights with their spouse, money worries,sick kids.  If they can do that through an 8 hour shift, Bruce Willis can check his attitude for a day or so while promoting the film that paid him more than most people will earn in decades.  If it's too much effort to behave civilly to a man who is only doing his job - which is to help Bruce earn more money by publicizing his film - then he can retire.

Bruce was not excited and that interviewer was not very perceptive.  If he had rolled with Bruce's devil may care attitude he would have gotten a much more memorable interview and not have been so a awkward.  He should have tossed back the same devil may care attitude instead of coming off like Chris Farley's superfan.

Basically the stars just sit in that same little room while interviewers and their people file in and out over and over again.  I'll bet someone did something to offend Bruce and so he didn't care if they got a good interview or not.

Typically, the interview would be edited so that you don't see that it was awkward.

I think he was rude. Being interviewed is part of his job. You may find it dull, but you're getting paid to do it, just like the barista at Starbucks is being paid to smile and make your drink promptly and without attitude.

POD.  Being an actor is job just like any other, and those workers should be held to the same standards as every other worker out there. Endless interviews are mind numbingly boring; well, guess what?  A line of 10 people at the checkout who all want to argue over which bread is on sale is boring, but the cashier doesn't get to give attitude.  A previous interviewer offended him?  I was mightily offended each time someone threatened to wait for me after work and beat me up (customer support for a web hosting company), but the very next caller got a friendly voice and my best efforts to help them.  Bruce needs to get over himself.

I wouldn't call his attitude "devil may care," which implies a carefreeness. This was quite openly "I don't want to talk to you," which is kind of hard for an interviewer to deal with, unless they're in a police interrogation room.

It's unprofessional, but there may well be an issue that we're not aware off that sparked the spat.
