Sam Elliott is putting his tail between his legs.
“I told the WTF podcaster that I thought Jane Campion was a brilliant director, and I want to apologize to the cast of The Power of the Dog, brilliant actors all,” he said on April 10 during Deadline‘s Contenders TV event. “And in particular Benedict Cumberbatch. I can only say that I’m sorry and I am. I am.”
“I said some things that hurt people and I feel terrible about that,” he said. “The gay community has been incredible to me my entire career. And I mean my entire career, from before I got started in this town. Friends on every level and every job description up until today.”
