Celebrity interviews can sometimes be a waste of years of experience, regardless if you’re Holly and Phil (or Ellen DeGeneres).
The One Show viewers were left baffled by the following: “snarky” Jennifer Aniston, a Hollywood star, made an appearance alongside Reece Witherspoon.
Discussing Apple TV’s The Morning Show, presenter Zoe Ball asked Jen whether or not she would enjoy a career in live TV much like her character Alex Levy.
In response, the 52-year-old insisted that she despised the entire format of live TV, along with its early mornings – likening the job to a graveyard shift.
“Watching The One Show and was surprised to see Jen Aniston on it. Even more surprised that she seems to be so snarky. She’s definitely not a morning person,” One viewer shared.
Over the years, there have been far more awkward interviews. Some stars even left. We relive some of the worst.

Ellen DeGeneres, a talk show host, announced earlier this year that her show would end in the next year amid scandals over ‘toxic workplaces’.
Her toe-curling episode featuring Dakota Johnson was shared by social media users, causing some viewers to share some of the most controversial and cringe-worthy moments from her show.
Ellen claimed Ellen had not invited her to Fifty Shades of Grey’s 30th-birthday bash. Ellen responded with firmness.
Ellen asks a snide question about the party, and Dakota politely replies that she didn’t receive an invitation.
Dakota responded to Ellen’s insistence that she wasn’t invited. “Actually, no, that’s not the truth, Ellen, you were invited.
“Last time I was on the show, last year, you gave me a bunch of s*** about not inviting you, but I didn’t even know you wanted to be invited.”
Ellen would not let it go, leading the star to add: “Well, I didn’t even know you liked me.”
“Yes, I do like you. You were aware that I liked you,” said Ellen before a very awkward silence.
Ellen then protested that she was never asked the party, but Dakota told her to ask her producer for the truth.
After being told she was out of town, Ellen suddenly confessed she “didn’t remember that until just now” before then back peddling and thanking Dakota.

Avril tunes out on Popworld
Channel 4’s Popworld always had an anarchic streak to it, with hosts like Simon Amstell and his successor, Alex Zane, constantly taking the mickey out of unsuspecting guests.
When they weren’t on board with playing along, however, it could make for painful watching – as was the case with pop singer Avril Lavigne.
When Zane asked her how she had translated Girlfriend’s song into languages like Mandarin and French, it was clear that the tone was set for her new single, Girlfriend.
“You didn’t do it in Latin, then?”He said it sarcastically.
Then he asked Avril if she had ever tried perfume and what it smelled like. Poor Avril looks confused by the question, shyly shrugging. “I don’t know, I haven’t thought about it.”
Zane does not seem to be listening to her, and he continues to ramble on about his favourite flowers and sunflower oil. She looks like she wants to be swallowed up by the ground.
The topic then shifts to how she was proposed to in Venice. But Zane then informs her that he has smelled the city like eggs.
She stops looking at him for the rest of the interview. This interview is quite squirm-inducing.

Hollywood star Robert Downey Jr branded Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy a “syphilitic parasite” After they clashed in a bitter interview.
After Guru-Murthy asked him questions about his past drug and alcohol problems, the actor walked out of the theatre to promote his movie Avengers: Age of Ultron.
He tried to also ask him about his relationship with Robert Downey Senior, his father in the film.
Downey Jr. told Howard Stern, an American shock jock, that Downey Jr. had said it later: “I’m one of those guys who, I’m always assuming the social decorum is in play, and that we’re promoting a superhero movie – a lot of kids are going to see it, and it has nothing to do with your creepy dark agenda.”
He pretended to be Guru Murthy, and he said: “You are a bottom-feeding muckraker.”
Stern was told by him: “What I have to do in the future is say, ‘That is more than likely a syphilitic parasite and I need to distance myself from this clown’.
“Otherwise I’m probably gonna put hands on this somebody and then there’s a real story. I just wish I’d left sooner.”
Downey Jnr was furious when the newsreader asked him questions about an interview he had done years ago in the US. He said that it was impossible for him to be released from prison while still being a liberal.
The actor responded: “Are we promoting a movie?”
