Beyoncé praised for how she handled Johnny Knoxville in resurfaced interview
| Last updated
A resurfaced interview with music icon Beyoncé interviewing Jackass star Johnny Knoxville has got people saying she could have made a great interviewer.
Beyoncé has had plenty of chances to stride down the red carpet during her career, but she hasn't always been the person getting a microphone held to her mouth and asked questions.
A clip of the singer interviewing stars on the way into the MTV Movie Awards in 2001 has resurfaced as people have reckoned that she showed a great ability to stay in control of the conversation when speaking to the pro-prankster.
Celebrities can get up to some weird stuff on the red carpet, whether it be giving odd answers which don't make much sense to getting distracted by their partners walking by.
With that in mind, it takes some capable celebrity-wrangling skills to keep up with their antics during an interview and in the clip Beyoncé demonstrated that she had that skill in spades.
The former Destiny's Child singer opened the interview by admitting she was 'very scared being next to him' as Knoxville was 'real crazy'.
The Jackass star reassured her he wasn't planning on getting up to any mischief as he was busy 'admiring this gentleman's moustache back here', pointing to someone behind them with an admittedly spectacular bit of top-lip topiary.
Having a bit of a giggle at the moustache, Knoxville said 'the test of a real moustache is whether you can see it from behind or not' before quipping 'speaking of behinds... that's it'.
It was pretty clear he wasn't talking about the people standing behind them any more, and Beyoncé said" "Okay, don't say anything else," before pivoting quickly towards asking him who he was looking forward to seeing at the ceremony.
Knoxville quipped that he was only here to meet her, and after a bit more poking to 'be real' he said he was also looking forward to rubbing shoulders with 'the bartender inside'.
Beyoncé quipped back: "I think you have enough alcohol right now," and fans have been loving how she was able to joke back and forth with Knoxville while still keeping it playful.
One said 'she handled it like a pro' and others agreed that she'd been a really good interviewer, letting the Jackass star know when to stop talking about behinds and even getting in her own joke about the bartender.
For some this was actually the first time they'd heard her normal speaking voice, with someone saying she 'seems pretty chill and a good interviewer'.
This was something plenty of people agreed on, saying it could have been a 'nice little fall back for her' if the whole singing superstar thing hadn't taken off as expected.
