M. Night Shyamalan received a less than cordial question from a foreign reporter while promoting his latest film, The Last Airbender, and the director did not mince words in his reply.
“I think if I thought like you, I’d kill myself” Shyamalan told the reporter who basically accused the director of selling out in a bid to revive his floundering career.
While any director would have bristled at such a rude question, Shyamalan’s response would seem to indicate that the reporter hit close to home. And the fact that M. Night felt the need to describe how popular his movies are in France really didn’t help his case.
Here’s hoping Shyamalan’s next project, Devil, doesn’t suck, so we can all look back on this and laugh nervously, and then maybe hump on each other like monkeys do when they get nervous. What? I saw it on Animal Planet.
See sh*t get real for M. Night after the jump.
