Terry Gilliam, offensive? The Monty Python alum seems to relish the role, smiling as he tosses off explosive opinions—and his latest Independent interview is no different. "People work so hard to be offended now," says the 79-year-old. "I don't know why I'm doing it. It's not fun anymore." Yet the director of The Man Who Killed Don Quixote still rips into #MeToo, defends white males, and claims Harvey Weinstein's victims made "choices." His most headline-grabbing quotes, along with reactions:
- #MeToo: "Yeah, I said #MeToo is a witch hunt. I really feel there were a lot of people, decent people, or mildly irritating people, who were getting hammered. That's wrong. I don't like mob mentality."
