Stan Lee Drops F Bomb in X3
Stan "The Man" talks about his controversial cameo in the upcoming X-Men 3.
Stan Lee, the co-creator of the X-Men comic series, told Sci Fi Wire he's finished filming his cameo in the X-Men 3 movie and it involves the "F" word.
"It's not one of my biggest roles, I'm a little embarrassed to say," he told Sci Fi Wire. “I'm a guy in the suburbs watering the lawn with a hose, and the water, as you can imagine, is coming out of the hose and going down on the lawn. Then one that has power to move things mentally"—Jean Grey, played by Famke Janssen—"she's driving, and she gestures at my house, and all of sudden the water goes up instead of down. And remember Sunset Boulevard, where Gloria Swanson says, 'I'm ready for my closeup, Mr. DeMille'? Well, it's supposed to be a big closeup of my face. And I say, 'What the f--k?' And every time I say it, [director] Brett Ratner said, 'Make it lower, Stan.' And at the end, I whisper it. So I don't know if it will come out at all."
Still Lee's not sure it'll even stay in the movie. "What really bothers me is if the movie is three seconds too long, I'm not sure that it will make the cut. Even if they don't hear me, my lips are definitely saying it. But that's what Brett Ratner told me to say. I just do these cameos, and I'm a slave to what they tell me to do."
Look for X-Men 3 May 26, 2006.
