The cast of Marvel’s highly anticipated Fantastic Four is gearing up for the film’s August 7 release with an intense media blitz. After answering the same handful of questions from journalists, the film’s stars Michael B. Jordan, Kate Mara, and Jamie Bell know how to smile and engage, doing their best to avoid any potential awkwardness.
While we thought that it wasn’t possible for an interview to be anymore uncomfortable than Cara Delevingne’s interview with Good Morning Sacramento earlier this week, radio hosts Jason Bailey and Southside Steve have taken the top prize for their offensive interview with the three Fantastic Four stars on Rock 100.5 Morning Show in Atlanta, where things escalated really quick.
From Southside Steve first being baffled over the fact that Johnny and Sue Storm are related despite being of different races to focusing on Mara’s looks (bordering on sexual harassment), specifically lamenting her new pixie cut, the interview goes further downhill until the producer comes in and finally shuts it down. The interviewers sadly show that despite the number of different family dynamics prevalent today, racist and misogynistic interviews are still commonplace. Major props go to the actors for keeping their cool throughout the entire ordeal.
