Mark Schultz Lashes Out at Perceived Gay Subtext in Wrestling Biopic 'Foxcatcher' - VIDEO

Schultz

Former Olympic wrestler Mark Schultz, whose career is the subject of the film Foxcatcher, took to social media earlier this week to voice his displeasure with director Bennett Miller's portrayal of his character (played by Channing Tatum) and the film's apparent gay undertones in the depiction of the relationship between Schultz and millionaire coach John du Pont (played by Steve Carell).

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

FoxcatcherIn his fact-checking rant on Facebook, Schultz emphasized he didn’t have a close relationship with du Pont and called any reference to a sexual connection “insulting” and “jeopardizing my legacy.”

“The personalities and relationships between the characters in the film are primarily fiction and somewhat insulting. Leaving the audience with a feeling that somehow there could have been a sexual relationship between duPont and I is a sickening and insulting lie," Schultz wrote on Facebook.

"I told Bennett Miller to cut that scene out and he said it was to give the audience the feeling that duPont was encroaching on your privacy and personal space. I wasn't explicit so I didn't have a problem with it. Then after reading 3 or 4 reviews interpreting it sexually, and jeopardizing my legacy, they need to have a press conference to clear the air, or I will,” he wrote.

USA Today also pointed out a series of (since deleted) tweetes that Schultz fired off, saying Miller was "finished" and that he should "throw that damn movie in the trash where it belongs."

On Thursday, Schultz posted a follow-up message on Facebook:

 
Have you seen Foxcatcher yet? What did you think of the film's gay subtexts?

Channing Tatum And Steve Carell Go For Gold In New Trailer For 'Foxcatcher' - VIDEO

Fox

Channing Tatum and Steve Carell star in the highly anticipated upcoming film Foxcatcher about a wrestler (Tatum) who wants to be the best wrestler in the world and a mysterious older benefactor (Carell) who offers him his patronage. What begins as a mutually symbiotic relationship quickly devolves into something darker and more twisted.

The film, which also stars Mark Ruffalo, was physically taxing on Tatum. From Yahoo Movies:

Tatum admitted to keeping secret the various ailments he suffered throughout the seven months of training and the grueling shoot that followed. “Look, when you’re in that kind of a movie, it doesn’t matter if you’re hurt or not,” the actor told Yahoo. “You keep moving forward. I don’t think my knees will ever be the same after that, and I still have cauliflower ear. But if I came out of the movie without it, I’d feel like I didn’t do something right.”
