As an entertainment and news editor, a major part of my job involves meeting with and interviewing celebrities. Having been at this for almost a solid six months (with a few smaller interviews under my belt prior) it’s become a little less nerve-wracking, but still remained just as exciting.
Most of my interviews are standard, we talk about their upcoming TV or film projects, partnerships and all-around life in general. However, on a rare occasion, something relatable happens that makes the experience somewhat stand out. And although these moments can be rather small, they still have an impact, enough so that I’m sitting here writing an article about it. One example of this was my interview with Kaley Cuoco on Monday morning.
The morning started off a little earlier than usual as I made my way to the Andaz Hotel for a 9 a.m. interview. I had my questions ready and was carrying my handy dandy iPhone tripod that I use to shoot video for the majority of my interviews. I entered the room, introduced myself to Cuoco (and the other ten public relations people and members of her team) before setting up in front of the Big Bang Theory actress.
“I like your tripod,” Cuoco said to me as I tried to adjust the legs. “This one looks easier than others I’ve seen today. The girl before you was having some serious trouble setting hers up.”
