Michael Parkinson has talked about what he thought about the interviews on his old talk show.

The 87-year-old broadcaster was on BBC Breakfast on November 4 to talk about his new book, which was written by his son.

During the interview, Parkinson was asked about his talk show, which he hosted from 1971 to 1982 and then again from 1998 to 2007.

Naga Munchetty asked Parkinson, who many people think is one of the best talk show hosts of all time: “Do you get sick of seeing the TV clips?”

He replied: “Do I get sick of it? Absolutely. I don’t recognise the person.”

Elaborating, he replied: “It’s a disguise, this is a disguise. All of it. You’re not yourself at all. It changes you. No matter how considerate you might be of the problems of being famous, it changes you, and it’s bound to.”

In August 2021, he told Meg Ryan he was sorry for the famous interview he did with her in 2003.

During their awkward conversation, Parkinson got more and more annoyed with the star of “You’ve Got Mail.” When he asked her if she liked being famous, she told him to “wrap it up.”

Ryan also said she thought Parkinson was “berating” her for “being naked” in Jane Campion’s erotic thriller In the Cut, which she was promoting.

When Parkinson thought about the interview, he told Radio Times: “I wish I hadn’t lost my temper with Meg Ryan. I wish I’d dealt with it in a more courteous manner.”

Ryan had said before about the event: “I don’t even know the man. That guy was like some disapproving father. It’s crazy. I don’t know what he is to you guys, but he’s a nut.”

Parkinson has also been in Going for a Song, Give Us a Clue, and Ghostwatch, which are all TV shows.
