Long-time showbiz columnist Ricky Lo's currently under fire from netizens for his incredibly awkward interview with Les Miserables star Anne Hathaway. A series of questions, from her biased association to Lea Salonga to the details surrounding her controversial weight loss, seems to have rubbed the Oscar-nominated actress the wrong way. Interaksyon columnist Jessica Zafra calls the Lo-Hathaway interview "an encounter littered with cultural landmines, all of which Lo stepped on." Ouch!

Press play on the video to see how this major fail moment transpired.

                                



Now we ask Mr. Ricky Lo: Anyare?!

What's funny is Ricky's done this a thousand times, and as good as he is, the veteran columnist's bound to do a fiasco of an interview at some point. It ain't even his first crack at an awkward question - Ricky Lo, God bless him, says the darnest things during celebrity interviews, and we can't seem to fathom whether the remarks you're about to read are dim-witted or mere bits of genius. We'll let you decide. Either way, we respect the hell out of him for being polite nonetheless. Your loss, Miss Hathaway.
