Jonesy & Amanda reveal the WORST stars they’ve interviewed

They’ve both been interviewing A-list celebrities for years and currently co-host WSFM’s Jonesy & Amanda show.

And in Facebook live chat with The Daily Telegraph on Friday, Amanda Keller and Brendan ‘Jonesy’ Jones spilled on the best and worst stars they’ve ever interviewed.

In the revealing discussion, the radio stars were happy to name and shame the celebrities who were terrible and also divulged their favourites.

Amanda was quick to pinpoint Spiderman actor Tobey Maguire as one of her least favourite interviewees, describing him as having ‘such little charisma’. 

She added: ‘He was so difficult and I understand that being a chatty person is a different skill to being an actor but how hard is it to sell a Spiderman movie.’

On the other end of the scale, The Living Room host said veteran celebrities, such as Rod Stewart and Tom Jones, who had been in the industry a long time were some of the best people to chat to.

She explained: ‘Ones who are a little bit older and get that they’re privileged to still be doing what they’re doing’.

Meanwhile, Jonesy described late actor Heath Ledger as being one of the most tricky A-listers to deal with.

The radio personality said he’d interviewed The Dark Knight actor several times over the years as his star power rose and noted Heath became increasingly difficult.

‘Each time he became bigger and bigger he became more aloof in interviews,’ he said.

‘I didn’t realise at the time what he was going through and our last interview with him was Brokeback Mountain — and wasn’t he cagey? He was really hard.’

Jonesy added that one of the factors that makes a great radio listening is ‘chemistry’.

The radio broadcaster thought that Jerry Seinfeld had bucketloads of it.

This, as well as Jerry’s willingness to go along ith any antic Jonesy threw at him, made the comedian Jonesy’s top pick when it came to past interview subjects.
