French humour during interviews

Jump to last reply

Jonah Hill, a US actor, has cancelled all interviews in France.

He was interviewed on Canal+ (a major in France) and the woman interviewing him teased him on some scenes where he did weird things, including a sexual scene with a demon in his last movie (this is the end). Don't ask about the movies, I don't know waht a theater is anymore.

Anyway, Jonah was not pleased and told the girl she did this kind of things frequently, from what he had heard. Ornella Fleury answered at her turn that she had a fantasm : she spent time with Jonah in a hotel, they had a lot of laughs, then Jonah brings him his friends Brad Pitt and L Di Caprio and himself... leaves.

So shocked that he canceled all further interviews.
Ahh the french humour...

The articles I find in english omits to say what he said before she crucified him.

I find this interesting on several grounds :
France is irreverential even in interviews
Hill reacted badly - probably (surely) quite taken aback by the first comments
everybody in France knows Canal is capable of doing these tricks, Hill was badly briefed
reactions on both sides of the Atlantic diverge, mostly due to journalists themselves
transcription of interview omits some facts, which indeed make it appear nastier from the French side

How do you read this ?
