Last week, we brought you a delightful tale of Brett Ratner‘s supposed shrimp-fat-soaked love affair with Olivia Munn, in which the auteur director admits he, “banged her a couple times.” Well, it turns out Brett was actually lying or just joking or trying to stir up more publicity for his movie Tower Heist — he went on Howard Stern this morning and retracted what he said about sleeping with Olivia. A link to the interview was retweeted by Olivia, so I’ll take that as a tacit endorsement.
Delightful, a really classy move. In other super terrific Brett Ratner news, the director made a shitty, homophobic remark at a Tower Heist Q&A in Los Angeles. Asked about his rehearsal strategy, Brett apparently brushed off the question and said, “Rehearsing is for fags.”
Excuse me? Are you serious? Not that I would have, in a million years, paid to go see the Ben Stiller/Eddie Murphy robbery flick Tower Heist (which, by the way, is probably going to flop) but can we officially boycott the flick on principle? Brett Ratner continues to prove himself an irredeemable scumbag who gives Hollywood a bad name.
