“Kathryn Bigelow would be considered a mildly interesting filmmaker if she was a man but since she’s a very hot woman she’s really overrated.”

That’s a tweet from Bret Easton Ellis, the author of American Psycho and other books and movies. I guess someone is a little butthurt because Kathryn Bigelow won an Oscar for Best Director (making her the first-ever woman to do so) while Ellis’ latest film project stars a can-barely-walk-straight Lindsay Lohan?
