Shannon Lee Reacts to Quentin Tarantino's Comments About Her Dad Bruce Lee: 'Shut Up'

Shannon Lee is reacting to Quentin Tarantino‘s assessment of her late father, Bruce Lee.

The 50-year-old daughter of the iconic martial arts actor responded to Quentin‘s comments about Bruce‘s portrayal in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (“Bruce Lee was kind of an arrogant guy,” he said during a press junket) with a statement of her own about the director.

“He could shut up about it. That would be really nice. Or he could apologize or he could say, ‘I don’t really know what Bruce Lee was like. I just wrote it for my movie. But that shouldn’t be taken as how he really was,’” she told Variety.

“One of the things that’s troubling in his response is that, on the one hand, he wants to put this forward as fact and, on the other hand, he wants to stay in fiction,” she also said.

“[Tarantino] can portray Bruce Lee however he wanted to, and he did. “But it’s a little disingenuous for him to say, ‘Well this is how he was, but this is a fictional movie, so don’t worry too much about it.’”
