It’s nothing, really, for me to be able to say it’s overwhelming or anything. It’s just – you do the interviews, you interact with everybody, and you make sure that, at the end of the day, you focus on why you’re here, and that’s to play football and make sure I can contribute as a teammate.
I don’t do interviews.
People down on their luck deserve the best: beautiful surroundings and well-paid professional staff to help them out of their difficulties. Why not train thousands more social workers and let them sit in on claimants’ interviews?
I think people are used to seeing actors be wide open and desperately giving of themselves, and while I do that on a movie set as much as I can, it’s so unnatural for me to do it on television, in interviews, in anything like that. I also don’t find that my process as an actor is really anyone else‘s business.
I never got into this business to do interviews. It was always about the music.
Describing someone as quirky is a way of erasing them. What does it even mean? In so many interviews over the years, that’s how I’m described. It doesn’t sit comfortably with me.

I would love to get Chief Justice John Roberts for an interview. I think that would be fascinating, I think that Supreme Court nominees should do more interviews.
In an email… like I did 100 interviews, and I never repeated one story. That’s impossible to do when you do face-to-face interviews, because your brain locks and you say the same thing over and over again.
People ask me, ‘Isn’t it scary living on your own?’ but in this industry, being at events, doing interviews, and doing promotion and constantly chatting about yourself, sometimes it’s really nice to just sit in silence or take a day where you can sleep in until 3 P.M. and then stay up as late as you like.

When I read my interviews, I feel, is it me? I constantly wonder if someone will get hurt if I say this or that. It is unfortunate that I am scared to say what I feel.
We’re bringing a focus on wrestling. We’re bringing an emphasis on wrestling matches and action taking place in or around the ring. We’ll do great interviews too, but in these segments, we can do it all in the arena and around the ring. We can do some stuff backstage; we just don’t spend half the show backstage.
I love the game and everything that goes with actually playing. What I don’t like so much are the interviews, the controversy, and all the external stuff.

I am utterly bored by celebrity interviews. Most celebrities are devoid of interest.

Interviews are fun, but I get nervous at red carpets.
Any actor who says that they don’t want the attention, and that they’re tired of all the interviews and photoshoots, are just pretending.
Being an entrepreneur is a mindset. You have to see things as opportunities all the time. I like to do interviews. I like to push people on certain topics. I like to dig into the stories where there’s not necessarily a right or wrong answer.
I learn something in the interviews from time to time.
There are some players who lacked respect for me. There were some things said in public that should not have been said, not in interviews.
I think interviews should happen after a journalist sees a film. You have a lot to talk about then.

I have decided not to give interviews and not to hold conversations with journalists who deal with the political activity of my wife rather than my activity as university teacher and researcher.
They can argue whatever they want. The problem is, when you interview every passenger, during the interviews you are looking for – you profile – you do profiling, to find the suspicious ones and put them out from the rest of the passengers.
Insecurity is very common among actors. When I started giving interviews and talking to people that I didn’t know, it was a nightmare. I’ve learned how to deal with interviews and insecurity; I’ve gotten used to it.
I’ve never understood musicians who don’t enjoy doing promotional interviews. I just can’t believe it. I always think, ‘Your life must have been so brilliant before you were in a band.’
I’m not good at interviews, I’m not good at dancing, I’m not good at looking like I’m having fun. I never will be, I don’t think. Unless I go to a life coach.
I can’t control how high my song goes on the charts, you know what I mean. I mean, I can sway it a little bit by working as hard as I can, hopefully being a decent person and giving good interviews and working hard on the road and being nice to people and shaking hands and doing everything you can do.
Upon graduation, believe it or not, I had no job. I had no interviews. I had no prospects. I had no worries. What I did have, I had passion. I had enormous passion. I had passion for financial markets. I had fallen in love with financial markets.
All I do is talk to people, email people, take meetings with people, and do interviews. Then I work at maintaining relationships with my investors because the trust people place in me is my business model.
Every night, I don’t care if I’m doing interviews that day or photo shoots that day, what’s most important is that I’m making sure I’m right and tight for the show. These people all come out to see me, so I have to perform and make sure that they never forget it.
‘Cloud 9′ is an action/romantic comedy that focuses on the competitive world of snowboarding. We have glamorised it to so that all the players are on the cover of magazines, have all the interviews, and be on the television: so it is very high stakes.
I’ve been giving interviews for the last 25 or 30 years, more often than not answering the same questions over and over again, ad nauseum.

When my wife passed, I stopped doing interviews and I stopped doing meet-and-greets, mostly because I sort of became this suicide ambassador. Everybody wanted to tell me their story.
Interviews are vital, but you cannot allow an interviewer to take your life and disturb it.
In our comic cons and interviews, they’re always asking him questions, of course, because people love Jean-Luc Picard. They love Sir Patrick Stewart. But he always likes to stop everyone and go, Wait, but these new characters, I can’t wait for you to meet these new people.’ He very much always tries to make space for us.
News channels have always had interview shows, but we need different kinds of interviews with different kinds of interviewers – interviewers who bring different life experiences to the table.
I treat the photograph as a work of great complexity in which you can find drama. Add to that a careful composition of landscapes, live photography, the right music and interviews with people, and it becomes a style.

I think there are just a million interviews in anthologies with famous musicians that are about the music, and they’re really boring to read.
I almost never give interviews. It’s not because I want to play hard to get. It’s just that I never seem to have anything interesting to say.
As a guerrilla journalist, I participate in the news by holding individuals who are in the news accountable through personal interactions. That involves confronting people in ambush interviews, secretly recording them, or engaging in a conversation with them when they are caught off guard.
I want you to understand, when I do these interviews, I say a lot of goofy things because that’s what people expect me to say. But I never said ever that I was trying to prove the flat Earth with this rocket. It’s to raise awareness, to inspire people, to dream – which is what we used to do in this country.
I’m not used to doing press conferences, and I don’t like giving interviews.

Interviews, when they are just simply an exercise in hearing what you want to hear, are of no interest.
I’ve always felt like there’s a certain amount of doing what I do, and performing and making records and doing interviews and photo shoots and that, that are kind of a necessary evil of getting my music to people’s ears to hear. Over the years, I’ve just become more tolerant of that.
My mother told me never explain, never complain. Even as a young actress, I determined I would never give personal interviews, since they made me so uncomfortable.
I’ve had some pretty rough interviews. And it’s funny when people are interviewing you, and they sort of don’t really understand what you do, and they kind of insult you.
It’s cool to express myself, but I’ve had to learn that doing interviews isn’t completely therapy – spilling everything about yourself isn’t healthy all the time. But I’ve been through things that have made me a stronger person, and if I can help some people, I will.
I’ve done so many interviews that I’ve gotten past the ego and the personality.
My interviews are very pointed. I’m an active participant; I will kindly interrupt people. But I’ve learned there is nothing people won’t tell you if you ask in a compassionate and legitimately interested way.
I think interviews are good when you are an actual fan of the person you are interviewing.
I like to talk on the cell when I do interviews. That way, I double my chances of getting brain cancer: from the cell phone, and from the questions.
Fortunately, I’ve done so many interviews that I’ve become very good at detecting when someone is giving a less-than-candid reply.
I often hear actors say during their interviews: ‘I want to play a crazy person, a murderer, or someone who’s on edge.’ But that question scares me. I mean, of course there are characters I’d like to play, but I can’t really say specifically who they are. It’s much too hard to play a convincing normal person as it is.
Whatever I say is so honest when I’m doing interviews.
There are all sorts of despicable people who journalists have done interviews with, and it’s been useful. Isn’t more information better than less information?
One of the things I’ve done on my shows is tell stories and do interviews.
I’ve been doing interviews for years, and in all that time, I’ve virtually never read one and gone, ‘Yep, factually and tonally that’s exactly what happened.’ Pretty much never.
I prefer to do in-person interviews, but it’s all a part of the job, and I love talking about these movies so much.
The interviews themselves last a couple of hours and are cut down, so you can take your time lulling someone into a false sense of security before you hit them with the really weird questions.
When we do interviews and we get asked the same questions over and over, I’m like, ‘I wish we’d get asked something different.’ But when we do, I have no idea. I’m not prepared. Because it’s hard to remember your own life!
People say to me, ‘You don’t seem that interested in interviews.’ Well, you know, I’m not, often. I’m not going to talk tactics with the press, so you are left with talking about how you are feeling; for me, it is not the most interesting thing to be doing.
Sometimes, all the interviews, those are the toughest thing for me, but once you really start to do it a lot and start to get used to it, I can find some fun in those parts, too. Because playing golf is the easiest thing for me, and that’s something I’m so used to; that’s why it was always easy.
I think it takes a lot of trickery to keep up with the media and its perception of you. I don’t know if I have it in me most of the time to care. The music is made first, and the interviews or photos to keep it alive come later as a necessary evil, I suppose.
I’ve done a lot of interviews of the last few years, and I’ve actually started a list of questions that it would be fun to ask an author, but no respectable interviewer would ever ask. Since I’m not respectable, I’m going to start doing interviews with some authors I know, just for fun.
Reading about myself on public platforms makes me uncomfortable. I don’t like it. I read other people’s interviews or articles, but when it comes to myself, if I see something about myself then I immediately turn over the page.
One of my first interviews was Robert Downey Jr. for ‘Iron Man.’
I don’t do interviews without a collared shirt.
I’ve never really done any interviews as myself.

I have had some great interviews and some not.
I don’t really have a blueprint to follow besides watching interviews. Well, I guess the blueprint I do follow is Def Jam, in a way, just because it started in a small space, which is so similar to how we started.
I wasn’t naive, but at the end of my Miss America year, when two different executives attacked me during what I thought were informational interviews about jobs, I was shocked. I didn’t see it coming, and the worst thing about it was the shame I felt, as if I’d done something wrong.
I’ve had two instances when I’ve met journalists face to face and we’ve had good interviews and I’ve said, ‘We don’t have children, by the way,’ and then they’ve written it. I’m not sure what that’s about. As misleading facts go, it’s not a terrible one but it isn’t true – we don’t have kids.
I’m not good at entertainment. I don’t give myself to all the interviews, game shows, or talk shows.
I think sometimes people get distracted in interviews.
Trump might think that Fox needs his star power, and on the margins it’s true that Trump appearances and interviews are right-wing ratings boosters. But the network was No. 1 long before he became a politician.
When I was younger, I would set up Grammy parties at my house where I would invite all of my friends over, and my whole family would sit in the living room glued to the TV. But I would just dream of someday going there, and I would watch the red carpet interviews over and over and study what was happening.
It’s been fun doing interviews with the other astronauts, getting to hear: ‘Oh, that’s how he explains it’ or ‘That’s how she thinks about it.’ We work together, but we don’t necessarily share all those thoughts or ideas.
I think if you do a lot of interviews, you’re laying yourself open. If you put yourself out, accept every invitation to every premiere, then you can’t really complain when people knock on your front door and photograph you in the street.
For all the interviews Pelosi does, she doesn’t talk often about her struggles and challenges as a woman.
When choosing between two similar applicants, hiring managers are increasingly turning to social media outlets to supplement information they are unable to glean from applications or interviews.
I’ve become wary of interviews in which you’re forced to go back over the reasons why you made certain decisions. You tend to rationalize what you’ve done, to intellectually review a process that is often intuitive.
I’ve said in many interviews that I like my fiction to be unpredictable. I like there to be considerable suspense.
I’ve been fascinated by the world ever since I read ‘Kitchen Confidential‘ by Anthony Bourdain. I’ve watched ‘Top Chef‘ and watched interviews with chefs on ‘Charlie Rose‘… I thought they’re really intriguing characters, and they really encapsulate that tension between vision and commerce, art and commerce.
I love doing interviews but yeah, I hope to have a long career like Wendy Williams, like Angie Martinez has or just a lot of people in radio that I look up to. Howard Stern has had a really long career.
I guess I am actually quite shy, and I’ve always felt very self-conscious during interviews.
I’ve been doing a few interviews since the loss of the SpaceX Dragon on its way to the Space Station. Each one very quickly questions the viability of what they call commercial space in light of the failure. I tell them space is hard: this is what happens early in a program with new technology.
In case anyone needs reminding, it was the relentless drive of the tourism industry and kowtowing State Department bureaucrats that led to the Bush-era Visa Express Program, which relaxed visa policies, eliminated in-person consulate interviews and opened the door to the 9/11 hijackers.
I could do interviews all day.
I remember when ‘A League of Their Own’ was coming out in ’92, when I was doing interviews, it seemed like every interviewer at some point would say, ‘So… would you consider this a feminist movie?’ People are worried that it’s a taboo thing, so I took great relish in saying, ‘Yes, I would. Write that, yes.’
You have to be aware of your own shortcomings. The main thing I try not to do is lose my temper. Doing live interviews on television, you learn not to say the first thing that comes into your head.
I’ve been drawing authors and politicians for newspapers for many years. I try to read up on the person; in the case of authors, read one of their books. I watch interviews via YouTube and collect pictures via the Internet.
I’m trying to get an internship at the ESPYS. I’d like to do interviews on the red carpet.
Live interviews are more difficult to distort.
Traditional technical interviews are terrible for everyone. They’re a bad way for companies to evaluate candidates. They’re a bad way for candidates to evaluate companies. They waste time and generate stress on both sides.
I used to be mouthy. It was all to do with being a northerner and from Manchester, which was suddenly a big deal when I was in my 20s. When I read some of the interviews I did back then, I cringe.
I can be the same Kiana that I am at home, on set, in interviews, everywhere that I go. And I think that it’s such a relief when you accept that and acknowledge that about yourself.
All I do is give interviews and spend time being photographed.
I get mad at people who talk about traumatic job interviews, about going on one and getting rejected. I get rejected all the time and not only do I get rejected, but people have no problem being really specific about why I was rejected.
I tend to approach giving interviews with the same sense of circumspection and restraint as I approach my writing. That is to say, virtually none. When asked what I made of blogs like my own, blogs written by parents about their children, I said, ‘A blog like this is narcissism in its most obscene flowering.’
I like to just be humble. The more interviews, the more embarrassed I kind of get.
I think the good ones, the interviews and the promos people remember, those are improv.

I’m doing TV interviews, I’m doing many, many print interviews.
I sometimes find that in interviews you learn more about yourself than the person learned about you.
I hate giving interviews.
It’s very strange: I watch a lot of interviews with other actors that I know saying, ‘Oh we had a great time; we’re best buddies,’ and I know for a fact that they didn’t, and they actually hated each other.
Doing interviews after a game, you can’t give your true emotions. You can’t tap into them. So when you do that for so long, you go into acting and it can be difficult to suddenly just be open and vulnerable.
I’ve probably done more than a thousand interviews, and I can’t remember what people asked me two months ago or two days ago.
I don’t do many interviews.
I’ve said in earlier interviews maybe I should have stayed one or two more years in Holland.
I’ve probably done 1,000 interviews about the ‘Monday Night Wars’ and how ‘Nitro’ was made.
I never live in the present. I’d do interviews and people will say, ‘Isn’t this great?’ or ‘Can you believe?’ And I would react, like, ‘No, I can’t believe it because I’m not living in this moment.’
Interviews aren’t hard to do, just time consuming that’s all.
If you follow my MMA career, I’ve always been the pro wrestler of women’s MMA, coming out with a guitar, saying crazy things on interviews, promos and such.
I’ve loved Basquiat since I was 13. From his artwork to his interviews to the way he thought about things, I’ve always been excited by him.
I listen a lot to Howard Stern. Not the show, the interviews. He has a separate podcast of just interviews. They’re fantastic.
My personality has gotten me some really good job interviews in New York.
With my own son, my style of mothering has been to bring him everywhere. He’s sitting on my lap during interviews. When I went to the White House to meet President Obama, he was there.
Sometimes interviews are fun and good conversations, but stuff like photo shoots and appearances at places where you have to meet a lot of people – I was never really made for this kind of stuff.
I love doing interviews that are about work that I do, films that I make. I am not very interested in the rest. I think I have always been quite reserved and a bit frightened of that whole thing.
Over the last 20 years, everyone who interviews me feels compelled to ask at least one question about ‘The Island of Dr. Moreau.’
Stanley Kubrick, I had been told, hates interviews. It’s hard to know what to expect of the man if you’ve only seen his films. One senses in those films painstaking craftsmanship, a furious intellect at work, a single-minded devotion.
My site has the whole thing – blogs, information, video interviews.
‘Trumbo’ is conventional in its structure, mixing interviews with archival footage. What I enjoyed most about the film was its liberal use of his own personal letters to friends and family, performed dramatically by well-known actors.
I think a guitar solo is how my emotion is most freely released, because verbal articulation isn’t my strongest communication strength. My wife thinks that I should do interviews by listening to the questions and playing the answer on guitar.
I decided I would never do interviews again.
Barry seems to be more flamboyant merely because he gets more interviews to talk about it.
Post Malone is one of my biggest inspirations. I just love his songs and his writing. He’s a genius. Then person-wise, I’m a huge fan of Zendaya. I love her. I watch her interviews and everything she does all the time because I think she’s just such a crazy good human being.
I read interviews saying women can bring a femininity to a song, a delicacy, but some women make really aggressive music.
I love radio interviews; it’s all about multitasking and, like all good women, I can do that.

I like when I do interviews with an artist and they may not have liked an artist at first but after they see my interview they’ll like them better.
You know it was really hard to do a set, or even to do interviews in English, because in Europe, we always had a translator with us.
I’m pretty interested in documentary film, and I’d watch almost anything. At some point, I stumbled upon ‘shoot interviews’ and found out that wrestlers were now talking openly about things that were going on in wrestling that we as viewers were not privy to. This fascinated me.
I wrote ‘Ain’t It Cool? Hollywood’s Redheaded Stepchild Speaks Out,’ because in doing hundreds and hundreds of interviews over the past six and a half years, I was tired of the story being half told or a third told or erroneously told.
With ‘Philharmonics,’ I had to do a lot of interviews, and it was like I was corrupting something. In many ways, I’ve said everything in the song. And either I can’t go back to what it was because it’s changing when I play it, or I still haven’t figured out what the song is about.
I give thousands of interviews, and I’m probably about as open as anybody in Washington as far as access goes, so I’ll continue to do that.
If I could get better on the field, I could get better in my interviews. I took that approach: if there’s something I’m deficient in, whether it be in relationships, whether it be talking to people, just that self-reflection to seek people out who can help me.
I’m crap at interviews. I’m just not very good at sentences.
My job was to build, and that’s still my job – and I like that better than interviews.
I don’t do interviews at home any more because my wife doesn’t like having her taste in interiors put through the mill. And I get annoyed when journalists make snide remarks about the annoyingly pretentious shops in the neighbourhood – because I hate them just as much.
I listen to my early Gang Starr interviews, I’m like, damn I was really trying to sound like a New Yorker then.
In most job interviews, people say they are looking for people skills and emotional intelligence. That’s reasonable, but the question is, how do you define what that looks like?
A lot of times, I feel like people come up to me because they think I’m like my character in ‘Easy A’, or because they’ve seen me in interviews, but really what they’re a fan of is a movie or a character.
Maybe the press in Spain do not like me because I do not give interviews.
My favorite thing about being famous… it’s not really as big of a deal as everybody says it is. Being on the road is tough, doing interviews, and all the stuff. It’s still pretty tough.
Personal questions, or accusations about delivering flops or not doing good films end up being accusatory sessions where I have to defend myself. That’s why I prefer not to do interviews.

The only work I’ve done the last two years is interviews. I’m very good at it.

Through process and preparation and going through all of the interviews, I’ve learned a lot about myself and my skills.
Every legislative meeting on how to pass health care, the communications director or someone from the communications team would be a part of because we did a lot of press interviews when we were trying to pass the Affordable Care Act specifically designed to help pass the bill.
I recognize that I’m in a band, and part of being in a band is doing interviews, and I do have a platform so I want to use that platform to talk about things that are real.
My sisters are my best friends and my most staunch supporters. They’re always there to help me through every audition, through interviews, and through everything. Hopefully, I find some guy that I love as much as them some day. They are the best things in my life, and I would be completely lost without them.
I am fine if videos and pictures are clicked when there are legit events and interviews. If I am sitting and having a private dinner with my son, my family or my girlfriend, then I do not want it to be filmed.
But unfortunately, I have to say, one out of every 100 interviews I do, I get a real journalist.
People always think I hate doing interviews. I don’t. I wouldn’t do them if I didn’t like them.
It’s strange for my friends when they see me on TV and in magazines, because the person that they see doing interviews and pictures on the red carpet is not the person that they know.

We know all about actors and singers because they do interviews, but with the royals, everything’s so tightly controlled. They live this strange reality behind closed doors.

If people want to really know what’s up with me then they can read one of my interviews.
I have spent a long time being asked questions in interviews, so I’ve experienced it on the other side but I’m really not afraid to ask any question myself.

I realize that I’m not going to be doing interviews for the cover of ‘GQ’ for the rest of my life, know what I mean? I’m on TV because I play basketball really well.
The best interviews like the best biographies should sing the strangeness and variety of the human race.
I went to art school, wanting to be a painter and then I got into photography. Then it was movies, and I liked the images. One of the things that interested me in film was that I was communicating in images. That was something I did intuitively and could not even talk about until I started having to do interviews.
Age focuses you. You are much better concentrated. There’s more time when you travel less, don’t do book tours, avoid interviews or public appearances. You walk the dogs, fish, hunt, cook and write.
I’ve never acted, but I’m an entertainer. So I kind of used what I know from being onstage. I’ve done a thousand and two interviews, and I’ve been on camera a million times, so I’m not uncomfortable on camera, but it was interesting for me to be someone else.
It’s difficult to be the spokesperson for something that internally is falling apart. That’s a tremendous amount of pressure to put on one person, to be the guy who gives all the quotes, all the interviews.
I just try to be myself in interviews, you do get a lot of people that change, put a front on to try and be something they’re not.
I am quite a shy person. You say that to people, and they say, ‘You do interviews, speeches. How can you be shy?’ But, fundamentally, I am.
I tell my students that if you have enough preparation, you can handle the big interviews. You won’t be intimidated.
The idea for ‘Lifestyles’ began to take shape in my mind as I became more and more frustrated with the type of celebrity interviews I was doing for television.
I totally can relate to guys going in for job interviews, and not having a tie, not having a white shirt, and that type of thing to wear. That’s why I think as coaches we can do things to help. We have plenty, we as NBA coaches and players are all very blessed to be in a profession so that we can provide for.
I don’t have a Facebook page because I have little interest in hearing myself talk about myself any further than I already do in interviews or putting any more about myself online than there already is.
What’s so crazy is when you give interviews to reporters that don’t really care too much for you, basically what they’re going to do is write what they want to write and discredit you. They’re going to write and say what they want to say, no matter what you tell them.
I went from never doing interviews to doing 10 in one day and standing in front of 60,000 fans. Now people look up to me, and I’m seeing little girls wearing my jersey.
Famous people I’ve interviewed – powerful people, brilliant people, people whom you look at and think, ‘Seriously, do you not have pores?’ – have turned to me after interviews and asked, ‘Was I okay? I hope I was okay.’
I always feel like I’m not very impressive in interviews when I talk about what I watch on television.
Much is written about the Batman because he is publicly exposed in print. Very little is known personally about his creator, because I haven’t given out that many interviews.
I don’t wear a lot of makeup ever, even when I do interviews or when I’m on TV. I just keep it me, and I think it’s important to show people I’m a regular person and regular people are beautiful, too.
I don’t really like doing interviews.
I feel like I’m really honest in my interviews, to a fault. I’ve lost friends over it. Major friends. And I’m heartbroken about that.
All I wanted to do was to perform my music, so I never really thought about photo shoots or music video shoots or interviews. You can’t anticipate those things – you just can’t plan this as a job.
The goal of my shows, my interviews, my business, my philanthropy, all of it, whatever ventures I might pursue, would be to make clear that what unites us is ultimately far more redeeming and compelling than anything that separates me.
Being a rapper as a woman is not a good thing in Afghanistan. I kind of put my life in danger whenever I go somewhere to talk about women’s rights or make music, rap, or have interviews.
I remember when I was in ‘Matilda,’ we would have interviews in the day, and then we’d go to a show, and it’s just, like, absolutely insane.
People that plan interviews are really boring. I just say what I want when it comes into my head.
