Queen Of Savagery Jacki Weaver Says Anjelica Huston Can “Go Fuck Herself”

Jacki Weaver

Jacki Weaver is clearly not afraid to speak her mind, and overnight, the Aussie responded to some shady remarks from Anjelica Huston, saying that the veteran actress can “go fuck herself.”

The trouble started when Huston gave a lengthy interview to the New York Times, during which she took a not-so-subtle dig at Weaver’s upcoming cheerleader movie Poms.

Speaking about the kinds of roles she likes to play, Huston said:

“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. 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.”

The upcoming Poms, which stars Diane Keaton, Pam Grier and Rhea Perlman alongside Jackie Weaver, is about a group of women who form a cheer squad at their retirement home.

Weaver clearly wasn’t impressed by what Huston had to say, and speaking with Vanity Fair, she offered her extremely blunt take, saying that when she read the article:

“I just laughed. And then I said, ‘Well, she can go fuck herself.’ I was kind of disappointed. I had always been an admirer of Anjelica. And I thought, ‘That’s a bit mean and petty.’”

With a giggle, she added:

“I would say she must be going through menopause, but she must have had that ages ago.”

The moral of this story, I guess, is don’t piss off Jacki Weaver?
