Blake Griffin: I'd do reality television 'if it was a good enough show' [Video]
When you work the red carpet circuit in Hollywood, you quickly learn that anyone who shows up to do interviews that isn't in the movie premiering is typically desperate for attention. (Yes, former "Bachelor" Jake Pavelka, we're talkin' about you.)
Which is why we were surprised to see Clippers player and NBA rookie of the year Blake Griffin at the "Green Lantern" premiere in Hollywood on Wednesday.
"I'm here with Subway. They're a sponsor of the movie. And they have that whole, uh, green thing going on with avocado," he said, attempting to explain his connection to the Ryan Reynolds comic book film.
But while the basketball player may currently star in a commercial for the sandwich company, he's not interested in acting. And no, he said, he has no plans to turn into a Pavelka-esque reality show star either.
When asked if he'd consider starring in a reality show a la Lamar Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian, Griffin didn't appear to be enthusiastic about the idea.
"If it was a good enough show," he said. "It would have to be something fun that I wanted to do. It couldn't just be following me around with cameras 24 hours a day. I don't think anybody would watch that. I like to keep [my love life] under wraps and keep it to myself."
But might it hurt his basketball career, as critics claim "Khloe & Lamar" did Odom's?
"I don't know if [the show] was hurting his playing. I think he did alright," he said.
