‘Foxcatcher’ Wrestler Mark Schultz Blasts Movie & Hates Director Bennett Miller

Mark Schultz took to Twitter to voice his anger over his portrayal in the new film Foxcatcher, which was directed by Bennett Miller.

“YOU CROSSED THE LINE MILLER. WE’RE DONE. YOU’RE CAREER IS OVER. YOU THINK I CAN’T DO IT. WATCH ME,” the 54-year-old wrestler, who was portrayed by Channing Tatum in the film, tweeted.

Mark‘s rants were surprising since he was praising Bennett just last week and wrote, “’Wrestling is extremely hard. It’s the hardest sport,’ said Foxcatcher director Bennett Miller. How can you not love Bennett Miller.”

In November, Mark released his book “Foxcatcher: The True Story of My Brother’s Murder, John du Pont’s Madness, and the Quest for Olympic Gold,” which he claims is the most accurate account of his life.

    This is Hollywood. They don’t care about your truth. They care about the version of the truth that makes money.

    That movie was horrible. A lot of posing and I thought I was watching a bad Michael Myers impersonation. It just looked like guys in prosthetic noses walking around. Nothing major!!!! It took two hours for the guy to shoot him. Don’t waste your time.

    I read the book, and he came across as very angry, always blaming others for all of the drama in his life. It was amazing he had a ghost writer, because it seemed amateurish.

    I think he means Olympic-wise, not “professional.” Big difference.
