Brett Ratner has been making waves ever since he claimed to have banged Olivia Munn back when she was named Lisa and before she became Asian while denying masturbating with shrimp oil in front of her.
He’s back this week with more headline grabbing statements This time during a Q&A after screening his film Tower Heist at the Arclight in LA. A moderator asked Brett whether he prepares and rehearses with his actors before shooting a scene.
In typical Brett Ratner fashion, “Ratner waved his hand dismissively and said, ‘Rehearsal is for fags.'” Well, that’s painfully obvious in most of his movies. Cohesiveness and story must also be for fags too.
Rehearsal? What’s that? Rehearsal’s for fags. Rehearsal. Not much. A lot of prep, preparation, complex action sequences, visual effects. Storyboards, animatics. The process was I made the actors stick to the script. And they wanted to, because the script was great.
A person who was there said the audience was stunned and at least one person even walked out upset over the reference. I totally understand that if he was gay. Not only did he have to sit through Tower Heist but then Brett had to come out and salt the wounds.
Ratner has since apologized for using a gay slur. In an exclusive statement to TheWrap, Ratner said,
“I apologize for any offense my remarks caused. It was a dumb way of expressing myself. Everyone who knows me knows that I don’t have a prejudiced bone in my body. But as a storyteller I should have been much more thoughtful about the power of language and my choice of words.” TheWrap
Then he made a dismissive wanking motion and blasted imaginary cum all over his statement. No, just kidding. Sort of.
In related news, Brett Ratner says he lied about banging Olivia Munn. Presumably because she got all pissy and then he felt bad when she told him he wasn’t Mr. Shrimp Hands in her book.
