8. Plummer: ‘I’ll Never Work With Him Again’
Few actors are outspoken enough to criticize a director they’ve worked with, but at 82, Christopher Plummer (who is the frontrunner for the Best Supporting Actor Oscar this year) doesn’t have reason to hold back. He tells of his experience working with Terrence Malick on The New World. “I love some of his movies very much,” he says, “but the problem with Terry is he needs a writer, desperately. He insists on overwriting until it sounds terribly pretentious… and he edits his films in such a way that he cuts everyone out of them.” After Plummer saw the movie, he wrote Malick a letter. “I gave him shit. I’ll never work with him again.” (Newsweek’s annual Oscar roundtable Jan. 23, 2011)
