Yikes! Bruce Lee's Daughter Not Happy With His Portrayal In New Film
Quentin Tarantino's upcoming movie, ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’, is one of the most anticipated movies this year because it stars some of Hollywood's biggest actors like Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, but not everyone is eagerly waiting for the film to be released.

In fact, one person is extremely angry: Bruce Lee's daughter Shannon Lee.

According to a report by The Wrap, Shannon was particularly unhappy about how her father was potrayed in the movie -- an arrogant person bragging about being able to “cripple” boxer Muhammad Ali.

Shannon said film's depiction of her father as "an arrogant a--hole who was full of hot air" was highly inaccurate.

“In the film, he became an arrogant and eloquent villain. It was hard for me to be sitting in the cinema and listening to the viewers laughing at my father,” she said.

She added that her father was often challenged, but he would often shy away and tried to avoid fights.

“Here, he’s the one with all the puffery and he’s the one challenging Brad Pitt. Which is not how he was,” she was quoted as saying.

Same same, but different.
The report also added that the author of Bruce's biography ‘Bruce Lee: A Life’, Matthew Polly, had also slammed the movie for misrepresenting the legendary actor.

Polly told the website that Bruce had never said that he would be able to beat boxer Muhammad Ali into a pulp in his lifetime, and he would also never "trash-talk Muhammad Ali in real life" as he reverred him.

We wonder what fans of Bruce Lee had to say about the film.
