10 of the Most Incredibly Unlikely Celebrity Feuds in History

Kathryn Bigelow vs. Bret Easton Ellis

The American Psycho author’s Twitter feed is a virtual hotbed of confrontations — remember that time he launched a posthumous attack on David Foster Wallace’s literary reputation? — but Bret Easton Ellis may have crossed a line when he claimed that Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow was “overrated” on account of being a “very hot woman” (she’d only be “mildly interesting” if she were a man). Ellis offered a long-winded semi-apology in the Daily Beast that was really more of a meta-reflection on his own Twitter presence, but the passionate response on Bigelow’s behalf from Ellis’s followers shows that she’s convinced plenty of people she’s a quality filmmaker, hotness aside.
