Giuliana Rancic has certainly spoken to her fair share of celebs on numerous red carpets.

But when asked about the most awkward interview she's ever done during a Wednesday appearance on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live, the E! News co-host had very little trouble recalling which one.

"Russell Crowe was so mean to me," Giuliana told show host Andy Cohen. "I had been at E! for a year and I thought, 'I'm going to go easy because he's pretty tough.' And so I said, 'Are you excited to be here? Your big movie premiere.' And he goes, 'I'm contractually obligated to be here. What's your next question?'"


But wait, there's more.

Giuliana continued, "And I go, 'OK, um, isn't it so wonderful to see all the fans?' And he goes, 'That's your second question?' And then he goes, 'One, two, you're through' and walked away."

Double ouch!

Meanwhile, Giuliana and husband Bill Rancic return for another season of Giuliana & Bill, starting Apr. 1 on E!

Viewers will see the couple face some tough decisions as they navigate the next steps in their lives. Will they have another baby? And will they make Chicago their new home?

Tune in to find out!
