Ellen Barkin Slapped Back At Terry Gilliam For His #MeToo Comments

March 19, 2018 / Posted by:

Based on what I know about Ellen Barkin, which is basically her body of work and her ability to scare away intruders, I believe she is not one you want to fuck with. She survived a trailer explosion. It was in a movie, Drop Dead Gorgeous, so the lines between reality and fantasy are clearly blurred for me. The point is, director Terry Gilliam might not have seen this one coming, but he definitely should not be surprised by it.

Terry Gilliam had some thoughts on the #MeToo movement during an interview that was conducted by Agence France-Presse in Paris last week. Terry described it as developing into “mob rule,” and insinuated that not everyone who met with Harvey Weinstein had a bad time.

“It is a world of victims. I think some people did very well out of meeting with Harvey and others didn’t. The ones who did knew what they were doing. These are adults, we are talking about adults with a lot of ambition. Harvey opened the door for a few people, a night with Harvey – that’s the price you pay. I know enough girls who were in Harvey’s suites who were not victims and walked out.

It’s crazy how simplified things are becoming. There is no intelligence anymore and people seem to be frightened to say what they really think. Now I am told even by my wife to keep my head a bit low.”

Terry probably should have kept his mouth shut when he lowered his head, because now he’s got his own #MeToo allegation courtesy of Ellen Barkin. Ellen worked with Terry on 1998’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Not long after Terry’s interview came out, she tweeted this:

Ellen has been on Terry’s ass for months now. Back in January she tweeted the following in response to an interview Terry did with The New York Times:

Terry said nothing about the #MeToo movement during that interview.

Ellen doesn’t elaborate on what Terry allegedly did in that elevator, but it’s probably safe to assume it was much worse that ripping farts in it. Luckily Ellen doesn’t ever have to worry about riding an elevator with Terry Gilliam ever again. She’s a very rich woman. Let’s say she’s at an event in Hollywood and sees Terry walking towards her elevator. She can just whip out her wallet and hiss, “I’m renting this elevator for the next 10 minutes, and it has a strict Zero Terrys capacity policy. Take the stairs,” as the doors close.
