Jacki Weaver slapped back at Anjelica Huston on Friday, saying she could “go f— herself” for the “petty” diss she delivered about Weaver’s latest film, “Poms,” in which she plays a member of a senior citizen cheerleading squad.
Huston’s comments came in a Vulture interview posted Wednesday after she was asked how she chooses her roles. “Quite honestly, I’m looking for movies that impress me in some way, that aren’t apologetically humble or humiliating like, ‘Band of cheerleaders gets back together for one last hurrah,’ you know,” Huston said.
“An old-lady cheerleader movie. I don’t like that kind of thing. If I’m going to be an old lady — and I’m sort of touching old lady these days — at least I want to be a special old lady. I don’t want to be relegated to some has-been making a comeback. I hate comebacks.
