Coppola is dissing

10.17.2007by:

Francis Ford Coppola Francis Ford Coppola isn't exactly the first person that comes to mind when one mentions talking smack but that's kinda what the legendary filmmaker did in a recent issue of GQ. He had some choice words for Al Pacino, Robert DeNiro and Jack Nicholson. Here's a little taste of what he had to say: "I don't know what any of them want anymore. I don't know that they want the same things. Pacino always wanted to do theater…(He) will say, 'Oh, I was raised next to a furnace in New York, and I'm never going to go to L.A.,' but they all live off the fat of the land." Whoa, them's fighting words. We don't usually traffic in gossipy items around here but hearing The Coppola kinda talk a little smack about iconic actors he's presumably friends with? That's a little too weird and surprising to pass up. Read the rest of what he had to say HERE.

Extra Tidbit: There are approximately 875 members of the immediate and extended Coppola family with prominent jobs in Hollywood.

hahaha

I can agree to disagree, but with Copolla he is sure to have as much money as he needs in his lifetime, and so he can talk shit about anyone he wants. At the same time, he's not done much shit himself, so I don't see how he can TALK shit about other people. Period.
It's kind of immature, whether it's true or not. Hell, he knows more about the insides and outs of "The Biz" than I do, so maybe he's hit the nail on the head. At the same time, there's no NEED to say this shit, and it makes

Wow. What an asshole. I read else where that he actually said Jack Nicholson is a waste of talent or something to that effect. He's talking out of his ass. Nicholson in particular is still doing GREAT work. So what if he does less movies so that he can enjoy his life. The man is pretty old. Of all people, I think he's earned the right to slow down at his old age and just be able to enjoy life.

Coppola really just needs to STFU.

If Coppola hadn't been on the outs lately himself, this wouldn't seem as awkward maybe.

If he said Nicholson's a no-talent, that's one thing. But I didn't read anything there that was outright insulting, just saying that he doesn't know these guys anymore, and doesn't believe they're up to taking on the challenging roles they used to. And in some ways, that's probably true.

I think if there's a real problem here it's that someone (not JoBlo) decided to make a story about his supposed
