Cool Videos: Todd Phillips hates this interviewer, lets him know

May. 26, 2011by:

"Having read your site here and there, you might be the worst box-office prognosticator on the planet Earth, let alone that has a web site. Literally. You are wrong 99% of the time...You have this bizarre attitude that you know things about the business but you're...out of control wrong all the time."

And so begins this massively entertaining and schadenfreude-filled interview with THE HANGOVER, PART II director Todd Phillips.

It's no wonder that Phillips' movies have gotten progressively darker - this new HANGOVER film plays like a horror movie with laughs - as the director himself has something of a dark, jerky, punk rock sensibility to him. He's not shy about hating people and telling people that he dislikes them and spends this 30-minute interview wondering aloud why he agreed to do it in the first place.

They do eventually settle down and talk about the movie but Phillips clearly is not that interested in being there, is tired of doing press and a little bit drunk. If you're OK with nervous laughter, you should check this out...

Right on Todd Phillips, he still gave a great interview despite the guy with a mic being a complete lame ass. Great insight into Todd Phillips as a director and human being.

Bad interviewer

First thing, the interviewer has an annoying voice and that will get anyone off in a funky mood. Also you can plainly see Todd Philips is being a professional and holding his end of the deal to do this interview so he will not get some reputation of being a dick. Todd Philips should not interview this long again with this reporter, the reporter needs to just write and stay off the camera.

pretty funny interview, but i don't get the news.
they obviously just are having fun and noone is mad or stuff like that.
and guess what: when he stands up "to leave", that was a joke.

He's funnier in these interviews than his movies are. He recent knocked Howard Stern's news lady Robin down to size with the same kind of attitude. Him and RDJ are very similar I've noticed.

It does get kind of intense for a minute, but you'd have to think that Philips is besieged by movie fanatics routinely and one who has enough of a following to consider himself an insider and then rub him the wrong way, would not be a person easily forgotten. Especially after a few drinks. I'd lay into him a little too.

I think it was more or less friendly chastising as opposed to him actually being mad at the interviewer.

Great interview!

Despite the rough start (I think he was mostly just "busting the guy's balls), this is one of the cooler interviews with this guy. Definitely far from the typical "vanilla" interview you get from junkets. Phillips seems a lot more relaxed (read: drunk) and willing to talk more interesting stuff...

seemed like he was having fun

None of this seemed mean-spirited to me, he was candid and called the guy on stuff he disagreed with but he seemed engaged in the interview to me.

Phillips makes a few good points. I actually quite liked Starsky and Hutch (amen Carmen Electra & Amy Start). I'm hearing mixed stuff about Hangover Part II but I'll be there !

I can see a lot of people on this site hate him for this, but I'm only sensing deadpan here and I love it

On Howard Stern the other day...

He tore Robin Quivers a new asshole after she said DUE DATE didn't make a lot of money which it did. He said how misinformed she is, constantly interrupting Howard, etc. And the sad part is that he's 100% correct.
