Mark Schultz, the real-life Olympic wrestler whose life is portrayed in the movie Foxcatcher, took to social media over the holidays to blast the movie’s director, Bennett Miller.  Schultz, who is played by Channing Tatum, called the director a “punk,” “pussy” and “liar” and said his “legacy” as a filmmaker was jeopardized by Foxcatcher. He also accuses Miller of portraying him as “an inarticulate meathead” who was “emotionally fragile” and “insecure,” and Tweeted “#Foxcatcher couldn’t have portrayed me more inaccurately if they tried.” Shultz, who is now a life coach, originally backed the film until the gay rumors began upon its release. This movie is pretty crazy.-TO
