Cats! It’s the pop culture phenomenon that’s taking the world by storm! I know I haven’t stopped thinking about it since I saw it, although that may have more to do with my constant worrying that those furry man-cat creatures are going to walk out of the screen The Ring-style and devour us all. With a reported $95 million budget (I’d bet you anything that it was WAY more), Cats took in a shockingly low $6.6 million domestically in its opening weekend. Reviews have, to put it mildly, not been kind, with Ty Burr of the Boston Globe famously summing it up with ‘Oh God, my eyes.’
Now, actress Evan Rachel Wood is joining in with her thoughts, posted to Instagram and Twitter (the latter of which was deleted.)

Totally! Like my life is not in danger, but I feel like I’m going to die.— #EvanRachelWould (@evanrachelwood) December 26, 2019
Evan’s totally one of us.
She later took to Instagram to clear up a few thoughts, noting that she doesn’t blame the actors for the mess and certainly isn’t exempt from being in bad movies.

(Said dancer she was married to is Billy Elliot himself, Jamie Bell, also the star of 2019’s superior movie musical, Rocketman.)
Cats is still in theaters because Universal needs to make back some of that money in any way they can!
