It’s the end of a fairly lackluster day, and I feel like saving the good stuff for tomorrow, so how about this: Some Hollywood scuttlebut. But not just any bullshit gossip — this relates to Bill Murray, the greatest comedic actor in the world between 1980 - 1996. Also, a personal hero to the world over. And a man who just doesn’t give a shit, which is why we respect him so much.
Anyway, you may already be familiar with Murray’s distaste for the cock-burglar, McG, the man who destroyed the Terminator franchise again and, before that, directed Charlie’s Angels and its sequel, which Murray refused to return to after having an atrocious experience on the set with McG.
Anyway, apropos of nothing, because that’s the way these rags work, the UK’s Female First asked him about allegations that McG leveled at Murray, suggesting the the actor headbutted McG in the face during the shoot.
Murray’s brilliant retort:
“It’s bulls**t. That’s complete c**p. I don’t know why he made that story up. He has a very active imagination. I don’t think there’s been a film I’ve made where there hasn’t been some kind of physical fight. He deserves to die. He should be pierced with a lance, not headbutted.”
Why would FF star-out the “crap?” You have any idea how long it took me to figure out what that word was? Anyway, there you go: Bill Murray, like Christian Bale, and like everyone else in North America, Europe, and parts of South America, loathes McG.
