A while back, we asked members of the BuzzFeed community to tell us what celebrity interview timing was inappropriate or inappropriate. Many submissions included interviewers asking questions that went completely over the line. Here are the most shocking:
When Robert Downey Jr. was promoting a Marvel movie and was asked about his past drug use and arrest.
When Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen opened up about the rumors they had eating disorders, Oprah then asked them how tall they were.

When David Letterman asked Lindsay Lohan questions about rehab that weren’t approved.
When Anne Hathaway was on Today’s show talk about Wretched, and the first thing Matt Lauer did was ask her about the photo the paparazzi took of her skirt.
