Matthew Goode ‘Leap Year Is Turgid’
But we always get the giggles when actors bad mouth their own movies; it’s pure salty goodness.
Matthew Goode, star of Irish rom-com Leap Year, effectively bitch-slapped the movie when he described it as ‘turgid’. Ouch.
According to WENN, Goode said,“(The location) was the main reason I took it – so that I could come home at the weekends. It wasn’t because of the script, trust me. I was told it was going to be like The Quiet Man with a Vaughan Williams soundtrack, but in the end it turned out to have pop music all over it. Do I feel I let myself down? No. Was it a bad job? Yes, it was. But, you know, I had a nice time and I got paid.”
They say there’s no such thing as bad publicity but I think that’s pushing it a bit. We can respect your honesty Goode but you should be careful about getting a reputation as a blabbermouth.
“Because of the way my repartee comes out, people tend to think that I don’t care. Actually, it’s often just a result of my being in a situation where I’m embarrassed about having to talk about a film which I don’t think is that brilliant – but obviously I can’t say that.”
Too late. Our review comes out later this week and surprise, surprise, I agree with Goode.
