The non-American actors from the movie about America's landing on the moon just can't help themselves from making statements that trash America.
As the movie "First Man" struggles in the box office, British actress Claire Foy thought it was the perfect time to slam President Trump as "the giant penis of America."
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Foy said in response to seeing the Washington Monument that "D.C. is where the giant penis of America lives."
"All powerful! D.C. is where the giant penis of America lives … in more ways than one," she said.
The actress went on to say she wanted to "violently hurt" a man she saw attacking the #MeToo movement during an anti-Kavanaugh protest outside the Supreme Court. He was holding a sign at the time that said, "MeTooFraud." By this time, the movement had become a witch hunt, but Claire Foy took the man's insult as an affront to all women and she wanted to attack him for it.
"Which is obviously bad. I can’t. Because he’s a lot stronger than I am," she said, adding that violence would "completely undermine my position."
Thus far, "First Man" has failed to take off in the box office, earning a tepid $16.5 million on its opening weekend. Some speculate that the filmmakers' decision to omit the planting of the American flag from the moon landing may have played a factor.
Though critics have heaped praise upon the film, with a Rotten Tomatoes score of 88%, audiences have been less enthusiastic. It holds just a 7.7 rating on IMDB with a B+ audience rating on CinemaScore. On Rotten Tomatoes, the audience rating was even lower, at just 60%.
"First Man" stepped into major controversy the moment its star, Ryan Gosling, said the American flag planting was intentionally omitted because the filmmakers saw it as a "human achievement," rather than an American achievement.
"I think this was widely regarded in the end as a human achievement [and] that's how we chose to view it," Gosling said of the decision.
