KTLA's Sam Rubin spends much of his time doing interviews with Actors that are pimping their new movie.
The Entertainment Reporter has interviewed countless actors, talking about their movies and trying to generate a buzz.
But, Rubin said on his latest junket for Ben Affleck's movie Accountant he
saw "something so shocking, something so unprofessional" that he had to rant about it.
During the interview, Rubin had veered into a conversation with Affleck about being constant tabloid fodder, when "the PR dope who is in the room actually interrupts us." The representative is heard asking him to "stick to the film" for his interview.
"But wait, it gets worse," said Rubin. He said "studio people" were editing someone else's video interview they had just conducted because of a joke about drug use. "They were taking out a remark he had actually made of his own freewill and cutting it out of the interview they were giving to somebody, because they think you might not understand it, you might not get Ben's sense of humor, it might make him look bad."
If Rubin knew that would happen, he said, "I would never have gone to your junket. I would never have been involved with promoting a movie that's trying to censor reporters covering the movie ... you'll never hear me mention this movie ever again."
Here's Rubin's take on the incident:
