The screen adaptation of the famous musical Cats is already a box office bomb, raking in an astoundingly low amount of money in ticket sales. To add insult to injury, actress Evan Rachel Wood called the film–which stars big names like Taylor Swift, Jason Derulo, Rebel Wilson, and Jennifer Hudson–“the worst thing I’ve ever seen.”
“I have to have an actual live reaction of this. What the f—k! What the f—k! What the f—k!” Wood posted on her Instagram story.
A day later, she bashed the film again. This time, she wrote, “…#cats is actually worse than I thought it would be, And I already thought it would be horrible. But….I am actually speechless. Why would you change the choreography? I…am SPEECHLESS. It’s not the cast’s fault. Its…maybe the worst thing I have ever seen. Ever.”
Most professional critics are in agreement with Wood: on Rotten Tomatoes, Cats has only an 18 percent approval rating from critics. Among ordinary viewers who saw it, however, 55 percent would recommend the film.
Wood later deleted some of her comments, saying she didn’t want to insult the actors in the film.
“I stand by my review, but I deleted it because I dont want people to think it was aimed at the actors/dancers. They are probably getting enough negative feedback from the film. Which is a shame. They were so innocent,” she wrote.
