James Cameron Calls for Dialogue With Glenn Beck
Posted on Mar 24, 2010
During a press junket on Tuesday, “Avatar” helmer James Cameron let fly about Fox News’ shouty conspiracy buff Glenn Beck, calling Beck a couple of rated-R names before backing up a bit and suggesting that he’d like to have a “dialogue with him.” In 3-D! Just kidding. —KA
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 fucking 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 was apparently referring to Beck’s reaction to his 2007 documentary, “The Lost Tomb of Jesus,” which casts doubt on the resurrection of Jesus Christ and makes the case that the ancient “Tomb of the Ten Ossuaries” belonged to Jesus’ family.
After blasting Beck, Cameron, surrounded by journalists inside a West Hollywood hillside mansion, seemed to reconsider: “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.”
