Open mouth, insert foot.Sam Elliot
Famous Western movie star Sam Elliott really stepped in it while discussing his thoughts on Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog.” After referring to the film as a “piece of s***,” Elliott went on to deliver a seething soliloquy about all the ways he took issue with it during an appearance on the February 28 episode of “WTF with Marc Maron.” “That’s what all
these f****** cowboys in that movie looked like,” Elliott said, comparing them to Chippendales dancers. “They’re all runnin’ around in chaps and no shirts. There’s all these allusions to homosexuality throughout the f****** movie,” he continued in the expletive-filled rant.
But that’s not all. While Elliott was adamant that he was a big fan of Campion’s “previous work” he also made it clear in no uncertain terms that this particular project got under his skin. “What the f*** does this woman from down there, New Zealand, know about the American West? And why in the f*** does she shoot this movie in New Zealand and call it Montana and say, ‘This is the way it was?'” he asked out loud. YIKES.
