In an interview with Marc Maron released on Monday (February 28th), Sam Elliott went off on Jane Campion‘s The Power of the Dog, calling it a “piece of s–t.” He seemed particularly bothered by the film’s homosexual themes.
The 1883 actor said the stars in the film looked more like Chippendales dancers than cowboys. “That's what all these f–king cowboys in that movie looked like. They're running around in chaps and no shirts. There's all these allusions of homosexuality throughout the f–king movie,” he said.
Maron responded, “I think that's what the movie is about.”
