It’s both a rare and joyous occasion when celebrities publicly feud in public, because it never happens. Usually, when stars hate each other, it turns out to be either a Jimmy Kimmel gag or an ad for HelloFresh. Otherwise, they keep their grievances so hidden that my 10-year-old would need two hours to unbox them.
The last time I saw real animosity between Hollywood stalwarts in the public eye was when “Mad Max: Fury Road” debuted in theaters. That film remains a masterpiece, and Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy are determined to never work together again, as long as they both live. If you don’t count the Oscar night slap fights, we haven’t had good beef since. I have cried many nights over this. But reader, that all changed this week, when not one but six famous-ass guys got involved in a battle royale that gives me hope for the beef industry as a whole. It was a little old Hollywood tusslin’ that we don’t get anymore, featuring cheatin’ spouses, passive-aggressive digs, on-screen orgasms, hotly debated moments of Expectation, and even Bigfoot. this is right. Big pow.
