(Newser) – Celebrity catfight alert? Louis CK recently sat down with NPR—and, in an amusing tidbit of the interview picked up on by Vanity Fair, the comedian revealed that he was not a fan of Robert Redford's sailing drama, All Is Lost. You see, CK has a yacht, just like Redford's character in the movie and, well, "you shouldn't see movies about something you know about because I'm very into the boating and I know how to navigate," CK explains. "But this guy in that movie, he made so many stupid choices. So every 10 seconds I was just yelling at the screen."

He continues: "You know, there was a million things he could've done to ensure his safety that he didn't. Like, he's trying to figure out how to use a flare gun. I'm like who doesn't know how to use a flare gun who's in the ocean? You're in the open ocean and you're sleeping? He didn't have his water anchor out. A million things that he did that were stupid and it just made me mad." As for boating, though, CK explains that he loves it because "I love to learn. ... I have this 42-foot boat that can sleep six people and it can go anywhere almost in the world. I love that I used to stand next to a boat and go I have no idea how to do that. And now I do, from trying it."
