Ben Stiller, Joan Rivers Feud: Actor Sorry They Never Worked It Out

By    |   Thursday, 26 Mar 2015 08:27 PM

Ben Stiller said this week he’s sorry he and Joan Rivers never resolved their feud before the comedian died.

Stiller, promoting his new movie "While We’re Young," appeared on "The Howard Stern Show," and said he was never quite clear about why Rivers had it in for him.

Stern seemed to have a solid idea based on an interview he did in 2010 with Rivers. At the time, Rivers apparently told Stern that Stiller ignored her on the red carpet.

Rivers, who is friends with Stiller’s parents, said he “couldn’t be bothered” to talk to her, and she also called him an “arrogant, lucky guy.”

Rivers also slammed Stiller in her documentary, “Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work,” when someone asked her about Stiller and she said, “Eh. Lucky.”

“She thought you didn’t like her,” Stern told Stiller this week.

“I’m glad you’re bringing this up. ‘Cause I never had an interaction with her," Stiller said. “This is helping me, because I didn't understand why she didn't like me. But she had a thing because she was friends with my parents [Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara].

“This makes it all clear to me now. I don’t remember that happening,” Stiller said of Rivers’ contention that he ignored her and didn’t speak.

But Stiller said it was “sad” that he and Rivers never got a chance to work it out. He added, "She was great. I feel bad that we never got to work that out. ... My parents were really friends with her and spent a lot of time and worked together with her, and she had an amazing career. ... But you've help me heal a little."
