I like this way of wording the question. I said in another comment that I have definitely had interviewees give me a run for my money. One was so defensive that I had to stop the tape recorder and just let her know, "I'm not your enemy." It's harder to do that when you have two other celebs in the room and cannot "break off" with one person, but still, asking the question this way would've been a better solution. I do respect that she's been able to fight her way through a male-dominated industry like (entertainment) journalism, too. This post definitely wasn't meant to be an attack on her. I'm still just a bit perplexed by someone so seasoned who managed to take this person. I've been challenged FAR worse than anything Denzel said the entire time.
