Princess Bride Star Reignites Feud with Sen. Ted Cruz

Actor Cary Elwes, who famously played farm boy-turned-pirate Westley in the beloved 1987 fantasy adventure, Princess Bride, antagonized movie superfan Ted Cruz on Twitter in response to the Texas senator’s podcast.

In a viral video of his podcast “The Verdict,” Cruz referenced Elwes while discussing how the left views people as a disease. “You talked about inevitable and I have to say it brought to mind Avengers: Endgame… You know Cary doesn’t quite have the massive Thanos hands and fingers, but you could see the inevitable in the finger snapping.”

Cruz went on to posit a theory about movie villains, who he compared to Democrats. “Have you noticed in how many movies how often rabid environmentalists are the bad guys? Whether it’s Thanos or go to ‘Watchmen.’ The view of the Left is people are a disease.”

Elwes was seemingly incensed that Cruz referenced the movie, in Wednesday tweet the actor scathingly addressed Cruz. “How does it feel to know that not only the entire cast and crew of your favorite movie The Princess Bride, but almost the whole entertainment industry, have nothing but rabid contempt for you?”

Elwes pointed out that Cruz botched the film’s tagline, which is inconceivable, not inevitable. “#inconceivable? I think not, you miserable ROUS,” he wrote in reference to the Rob Reiner film’s monsters, which were “rodents of unusual size.”

Unflappable Cruz jeered back with a photo of framed movie still of Westley personally addressed to the senator and signed by Elwes, along with the caption, “Does this mean you want your picture back?”

In September, Cruz jeered at Elwes post announcing the film’s cast had reunited for a virtual table reading of the script to benefit the Wisconsin Democratic Party and President Biden’s campaign.

“Do you hear that Fezzik? That is the sound of ultimate suffering. My heart made that sound when the six-fingered man killed my father,” Cruz wrote in reference to the film. “Every Princess Bride fan who wants to see that perfect movie preserved from Hollywood politics makes it now.”

Actors/Actresses are 90% left wing because they believe that in a left wing country the people will stay poor but actors/actresses will always be kept rich. Shows you how incredibly stupid they are.

Anything these people does, they have to be directed. That’s the reason, they are called “Actor and Actress” No mind of their own.

Wait until they’re all replaced with CGI. No calling in sick. No trailers. No egos. No temper tantrums. No holding out for more money. No worrying about how many hours they’ve worked. Oh, the time is near my friends.

You OBVIOUSLY care very much. Why do you lot think that acters etc do not have the right to have an opinion and, like you, to state it?”

Well we all know worthless “entertainers” are leftists, so this goofball is correct.
But, the bottom line is they are overpaid “entertainers,” nothing more, nothing less.
They memorize lines and recite those lines in front of a camera.
They are clueless about the real world, they don’t live in the real world and their opinions are meaningless.
Only a few have a clue. James Woods is one. Some older actors are conservative, but they have to keep it Top Secret. Sad!!!!!!!!!

Why on Earth do the dopes in Hollywood always go after the smartest guy in the Senate and think they are going to outwit him? They can’t help themselves, it is hilarious. “Don’t touch the hot stove”, and they all turn into Homer Simpson and just have to touch it, I am going to get Ted Cruz today, is code for, my career is over and I need someone to notice me!

Ted Cruz, “the smartest guy in the Senate”? That’s the best joke of the day, you deserve an award of some kind. Cruz, all for Trump when it benefits him ( he thinks) but not so much otherwise (when it benefits him, he thinks!

The actors live and work in a fantasy world but they think it’s real life. They can remember lines but are pretty much brain dead when it comes to the real world. The idiot they put in office is destroying our country! First day over 1100 people lost there jobs lets keep going with the stroke of the pen he put more like 100,000 people out of work ! And he’s not the President he’s a puppet he has no idea what he’s signing!

I find it fascinating that it is only since Donald J Trump won the Presidency (twice, I might add) that these narcissistic Hollywood drama queens have decided that they don’t like Conservatives. They branded President Trump as a racist without so much as listening to his real views or policies and without taking the time to look at the real good he does and did as President, in fact it seems to me the only people who don’t like him and by extension anyone who supports him are people who are too dense to and self absorbed to listen to ANYTHING a conservative says! And btw, I am including some of my own family members in that too dense and self absorbed group! I have sat and listened and heard what they have said, but rarely if ever have I been given the same courtesy. Instead having to end conversations with “I love you, but I think we have to agree to disagree”

Ted Cruz is Hispanic. Doesn’t that make Cary Elwes a racist for saying anything derogatory to Cruz? Their rules, not mine.

In a way, I feel sorry for the so-called Hollywood Elite, for some reason they think, sorry to say that they think would imply that they actually have functioning brain cells. They actually believe that when their Utopian Socialist World comes to be that they will be right up there with the Washington DC Elite. They don’t seem to understand that in a truly Socialist State you do as you are told and not as you please. The very same holds true for the media. They also believe that they will somehow be exalted for their contribution to the takeover of this Constitutional Republic. Just like any Socialist country, they will do as they are told, they will say what they are told to say, and any deviation from the Regime’s Narrative will be dealt with swiftly. They will not be TV Personalities making wisecracks and joking. Just look at Communist China, anyone who does not fall in line with the party line just disappears. As a very wise man once said, “Be careful what you wish for”

Don’t forget the pay will drop dramatically. How many good movies have you ever seen come from Russia or China? The same with good music?

I have never heard of this guy, and never will. Never saw this movie, and if it was anything associated with Rob Reiner, I never will. Rob Reiner reminds me of the fat kid that had no friends growing up, so he had to make up friends. Or, maybe his mother put a pork chop around his neck so the dogs would play with him. Matt Stone and Trey Parker had it correct in their South Park episode.

Just another Hollywood sicko who does not know his a–hole from his elbow. Look what the sickos have done by telling people to vote for CHINA joe and camel face heels up.
We the ordinary people will pay for their opinions of who to vote for, for years to come.
Pray for us ordinary people and America for we will need it.
