Entertainment Jordan Peterson Breaks Down in Tears When Asked About Olivia Wilde Calling Him a ‘Hero to the Incel Community’: ‘Sure, Why Not?’
Olivia Wilde Forced to Cut Scenes From Don't Worry Darling Trailer
Olivia Wilde discussed how the MPA interfered with the trailer for her upcoming film, Don't Worry Darling."I had to cut some shots, which I was upset about because I thought they it took it up another notch. But of course we still live in a really puritanical society. I do think the lack of eroticism in American film is kind of new. Then when it comes to female pleasure, it’s something that we just don’t see very often unless you’re talking about queer cinema. You know, it’s interesting because in a lot of queer films, the female characters are allowed to have more pleasure. Audiences aren’t as puritanical as corporations think they are. And yet people get upset.
broke down in tears during an interview on “Piers Morgan Uncensored” (via ) when asked about as “a hero to the incel community.” Wilde was on her “Don’t Worry Darling” press tour when she revealed to that ’s villainous character in the film, Frank, is based on Peterson. Wilde called Peterson “this pseudo-intellectual hero to the incel community.”

Critics Have Decided About Olivia Wilde's Troubled New Movie
Olivia Wilde has had a rough few months. In addition to her well-publicized personal issues (which became even more public after she was literally upstaged by legal documents), her new feature film Don't Worry Darling has seemingly been beset by drama after drama after drama. Now that the film has been publicly screened at the Venice Film Festival (with star Florence Pugh notably declining to sit on a Q&A panel), the critical consensus is coming for Olivia Wilde and her new movie. In short: it is not great.
Peterson then broke down into tears and said, “It’s very difficult to understand how demoralized people are, and certainly many young men are in that category. You get these casual insults, these incels — what do they mean? These men, they don’t know how to make themselves attractive to women who are very picky, and good for them. Women, like, be picky. That’s your gift, man. Demand high standards from your men. Fair enough. But all these men who are alienated, it’s like they’re lonesome and they don’t know what to do and everyone piles abuse on them.”
Olivia Wilde Reasserts That She Fired Shia LaBeouf from "Don't Worry Darling" After Drama
The chatter behind the scenes of "Don't Worry Darling" could inspire its own movie.In the October issue of Vanity Fair, Wilde spoke about directing the film - and she discussed the conversation that she claims led her to call LaBeouf and fire him. LaBeouf was set to star as Pugh's husband Jack in the movie, but Wilde said Pugh allegedly approached the director and asserted that she was "uncomfortable" and had concerns about the actor's behavior.
After calling Peterson a “hero to incel community,” Wilde described incels as “disenfranchised, mostly white men, who believe they are entitled to sex from women. And they believe that society has now robbed them — that the idea of feminism is working against nature, and that we must be put back into the correct place.”
“This guy Jordan Peterson is someone that legitimizes certain aspects of their movement because he’s a former professor, he’s an author, he wears a suit, so they feel like this is a real philosophy that should be taken seriously,” Wilde added.
Peterson told Morgan that he wasn’t too offended by Wilde’s comment (it was a “low-level” insult, he said). Instead, the diss convinced Peterson to check out the “Don’t Worry Darling” trailer.
“I thought, ‘I’d go see that movie.’ and perhaps I will,” Peterson said. “It didn’t really bother me… [Chris Pine] is a very good looking man… I hope he gets my fashion style choice right.”
