Remember how Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was in Los Angeles around the time of the 2014 Academy Awards? He was a guest on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” during that trip, sharing the bill with Oscar-winning actor Kevin Spacey.
Alas, neither the crack-smoking mayor nor his brother, Doug Ford, were impressed with Spacey’s manners.
And they aren’t afraid to talk about it on their web series, “Ford Nation.”
To be fair, it’s mostly Doug who has the Spacey hate going on. Rob claims that he doesn’t even know who the two-time Oscar winner and star of “House of Cards” is. Doug, on the other hand, has plenty to say about Spacey.
“I wanna start off by saying Kevin Spacey is an incredible actor. He is. He really is,” Doug Ford says to begin. Then comes the dislike. “In my opinion, he’s an arrogant SOB, and I’ll tell you the reason why: Any actor that makes a living off the people that watch his shows, he wouldn’t take a picture with anyone? We were told, ‘You can’t take a picture and you can’t speak to him.’ Who does this character think he is?”
Doug’s rant continues, offering both disgust with Spacey’s personality and apparently praise for the man’s acting skills:
“He thinks he’s God? That he’s up there, that no common folk can take your picture? And then, do you know what’s amazing? He goes on the show, and he changes on the dime. Like on a dime! It’s unbelievable! So you know, Kevin, why don’t you get off your high horse and be real and take pictures of people?”
What does Rob have to say about this? “I don’t watch movies,” the Toronto mayor claims. “I wouldn’t know him if I ran him over.”
Let’s just hope it doesn’t come to vehicular assault.
