During the chat, he revealed that Kanye has “some ridiculous rules.”

“He wanted you to stay 10 paces behind him on a city street. So obviously if someone is going to come up and do something, by the time I try to run up and prevent it, it would have already happened,” he said.

“The first day I met him…it was fashion week. I was supposed to meet him at the studio. When he gets there, we get into the elevator and he’s says ‘aren’t you going to push what floor we are going to?’ I was like ‘I have no idea what floor, it’s my first day.’ So he starts ranting ‘So you mean you didn’t call ahead to find out where I’m supposed to be going?” I said ‘no.’ So he’s ranting and raving. So I said ‘look bro, we can do this one of three ways. One, you could tell me what button to press, and now I’ll know. Two, you could press the button, and I’ll see which one you press so I’ll know. Or three, you can sit in here all day and tell me how important your time is and we are not going to go anywhere.’ Again, that was our first interaction. He went for the first option.”

He also admitted that Kanye was “one of my least favorite people to work with over the course of time.”

He discussed experiences with Kanye, Kim Kardashian and the paparazzi as well.

“First of all, there’s no way [paparazzi] doesn’t get called upfront. There’s no way every time they are leaving, all these people know about it. There’s definitely somebody calling ahead. That’s just my opinion…I’m just saying it coincidental that wherever we are, they’re always there. Maybe they’re just better than I think they are.”

And finally, in a Name That Celeb game, he declared Kanye the hardest worker, neediest, moodiest and worst tipper, and said he’d never work with him again. Alternatively, he said Tobey Maguire was the kindest celebrity, and that Woody Harrelson, Stephen Baldwin and Alanis Morissette were all great.
