Director James Cameron took a swipe at Fox News’ Glenn Beck during a recent publicity event for the release of “Avatar” on DVD, according to the Hollywood Reporter:
Asked what he thought about Beck during a junket appearance in support of the “Avatar” home-video release, Cameron said: “Glenn Beck is a f—ing asshole. I’ve met him. He called me the anti-Christ, and not about ‘Avatar.’ He hadn’t even seen ‘Avatar’ yet. I don’t know if he has seen it.”
Cameron went on to say, “I think, you know what, he may or may not be an asshole, but he certainly is dangerous, and I’d love to have a dialogue with him.” Cameron’s contentious feelings towards Beck began from a 2007 interview when Beck had a show on then-Headline News.
TVNewser hears that Beck will address the remarks on his Fox News show this evening. Cameron’s “Avatar” is now the most successful movie of all time and is distributed by 20th Century Fox.
