Evan Rachel Wood didn’t like the movie adaptation of the classic musical “Cats” and has minced no words in condemning the Hollywood film. She says it is the “worst movie” that she has ever seen.
Featuring Andrew Lloyd Weber’s iconic music and the team of dancers under the guidance of Tony-winning choreographer Andy Blankenbuehler, the film, helmed by Oscar-winning director Tom Hooper, re-imagines the musical for a new generation.
The actress took to Twitter to express her views about the movie, reports dailymail.co.uk.
“#Cats is actually worse than I thought it would be, And I already thought it would be horrible,” Wood posted.
“But….I am actually speechless. Why would you change the choreography? I…am SPEECHLESS,” she said, referring to the choreography of the original stage musical.
“It’s not the cast’s fault,” she said, referring to the star-studded cast including Taylor Swift, Jennifer Hudson, James Corden, Idris Elba, Ian McKellen, Rebel Wilson, Judi Dench, Jason Derulo.
“Its…maybe the worst thing I have ever seen. Ever,” she wrote.
Wood received several responses to her tweet, including one from Fandom managing editor Eric Goldman, who said: “I felt like I was on acid watching it. So utterly bizarre.”
The actress responded: “Totally! Like my life is not in danger, but I feel like I’m going to die.”
Wood also re-tweeted a Twitter user’s post who said, “It’s an insult to mainstream audiences and it’s an insult to the OG Cats musical fans. Who is this movie FOR.”
