According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, fans of cinema were furious when the television personality and the presenter of the talk show, Rosie O & # 39; Donnell, deliberately spoiled the twist end of the classic movie from the 1990s with Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, Fight Club.
The cult film starring the two above-mentioned actors turned 20 this week. It was during the opening weekend of the film debut in October 1999 when Rosie spoke badly about the film in an episode of the Rosie O & # 39; Donnell Show on NBC.
The star was dedicated by some of her viewers because she intentionally ruined the end of the film, which at the time was a very original and exciting conclusion for a film. One of the co-stars of Edward and Pitt, who sang famously “His name is Robert Paulson” during a scene, stated that he was “furious” when she did that.
The actress reportedly saw an early screening of the film and hated it so much that she took it upon herself to ruin it for anyone who wanted to watch it. The actress explained at the time that the motives of the film of violence and anti-consumerism were dangerous.
Rosie apparently chose to spoil the end as a way of deterring potential film visitors from seeing the film. McCallany, who currently plays the lead role in Mindhunter alongside Jonathan Groff, stated that he met her once or twice, so there was no reason to hate her.
However, once he saw what she had done, it became increasingly difficult not to judge her. At that time, Rosie O & # 39; Donnell organized her own series on NBC, Rosie O & # 39; Donnell Show which ran six seasons from 1996 to 2002.
During the height of popularity Rosie would receive about 5 million viewers from her show. Later, Brad Pitt described O & # 39; Donnell & # 39; s decision to spoil the ending as & # 39; unforgivable & # 39 ;. Before the age of social media, however, the ability to spoil the end of such a movie was almost impossible, because of Rosie’s large platform, it was a lot easier for her.
Anyway, since the release of the film it’s the one become an iconic film for his research into anti-consumerism and violence.
