Sam Elliott Is Very Sorry For His Criticism Of “The Power Of The Dog”

April 11, 2022 / Posted by:

A little over a month ago, Sam Elliott and his deep tobacco-dipped voice appeared on an episode of WTF with Marc Maron where he dragged The Power of the Dog, the critically-acclaimed and Oscar-nominated western by Jane Campion. Sam, not a real cowboy, decided to represent real cowboys everywhere by claiming that the movie wasn’t authentic enough, while simultaneously applying some pretty heavy-handed homophobia by implying that the movie had too many shirtless cowboys running around and that the movie’s main character Phil (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) was throwing off too many gay vibes. Sam is now walking aaaaaall of that back, due to the backlash he received from some of his nearest and dearest in the gay community.

Jane Campion Is Getting Called Out For Her Comment About Serena And Venus Williams At The Critics Choice Awards (UPDATE)

Jane Campion Calls Sam Elliott A “B-I-T-C-H” And Checks Him Over His “Power Of The Dog” Hate

She beat out Paul Thomas Anderson (for Licorice Pizza), Kenneth Branagh (for Belfast), Steven Spielberg (for West Side Story), and Denis Villeneuve (for Dune). This means that Jane is still the frontrunner for the Best Director Oscar, and if she wins, everybody better brace their eardrums for a serious rattling because noted PotD hater, Sam Elliott, is going to let out a deep, throaty, earth-shaking angry pepaw wail of NOOOOOOOOOO. Because we all know how Sam feels about PotD and Jane Campion (or “this woman from down there New Zealand” as Sam calls her) directing a western. And while talking to reporters at the DGA Awards last night, Jane was asked about Sam calling her movie a “piece of shit,” among other things, and she let Sam know that he’s acting like a little “b-i-t-c-h.”
