As one of the stars of The Big Bang Theory, Mayim was asked, “How many people…think that you can solve calculus at the drop of a hat?”

Mayim answered, “I actually was trained in calculus for several years. I’m a neuroscientist.”

And she actually is. So, she can do calculus.

Salman Rushdie

For some reason, an interviewer thought it would be a good idea to ask Salman, “Are you a feminist?”

Of course Salman answered, “Yes. What else is there to be? Everything else is being an asshole. These are your choices.”

John McKay

One time, former NFL coach John McKay was asked what were his thoughts on his team’s execution.

He answered, “I think it’s a good idea.”

You know, because execution is how you win football games.

Anna Kussmaul

For some reason, an interviewer thought it would be a good idea to ask six female cosmonauts about their hair. They would be spending eight days of their lives in a mock spacecraft. The interviewer asked how they would be able to handle that time without men, without any makeup, and how about their hair.

Anna Kussmaul responded, “I don’t know how we’ll survive without shampoo, because even in this situation, we really want to stay looking pretty.”

Brad Roberts

When he was asked, “How did you get such a low voice?”

Brad Roberts answered, “I have a third testicle.”

Where do these interviewers get these questions?

David Bowie

In an awkward moment, an interviewer asked David Bowie, “Now David, looking back over the ’70’s into the 80’s, how do you sort of look at music in the 70s?”

To which David Bowie turned his head and joked, “Sort of like this.”

Jennifer Lawrence

She won her first Oscar at the age of 22 and an interviewer wanted to ask her if she was worried about peaking too soon.

Jennifer looked at the interviewer, “Now I am!”

She doesn’t have any need to worry about that at all.

Matt Damon

Standing beside his mother who is a school teacher, Matt was asked by a cameraman, “Aren’t 10 percent of teachers bad, though? Ten percent of teachers are bad…Ten percent of people in any profession maybe should think of something else.”

Of course, that might not have gone down too well with Matt who answered, “Maybe you’re a shitty cameraman.”

This was at a Save Our Schools rally. You know, where most people are on the side of the schools and the teachers.

Scarlett Johansson

One interviewer asked Scarlett Johansson, “To get into shape for the Black Widow, did you have anything special to do in terms of diet, like did you have to eat any specific food or that sort of thing?”

She looked over at Robert Downey Jr. and said, “How come you get the existential question and I get the rabbit food question?”

Taurean Prince

He was frustrated after losing the game to Yale. So when the interviewer asked, “How did Yale out-rebound you?”

Taurean took out his frustration a little bit with this answer, “You go up and grab the ball off the rim when it comes off, and then you grab it with two hands, and then you come down with it. That’s considered a rebound. So, they got more of those than we did.”

Rashida Jones

It wasn’t so much a question when the interviewer was saying, “You look like you’ve just come off an island or something. You’re very tan, very tropical.”

But it prompted a response from Rashida, “I mean, you know, I’m ethnic.”

You know, her being the daughter of Quincy Jones and all. He’s only a famous producer you might have noticed is African-American.

Megan Fox

When an interviewer asked, “Do you think it’s just a matter of time before there are more superhero films with female leads?”

Megan didn’t skip a beat, “Do you think that I would answer anything but yes to that question? Do you think I would be like, ‘No, it’s not time for women to be in movies; let’s take it back 50 years?'”
