Recently, Jennifer Aniston had shared her disappointment with the Allure magazine earlier this month that movie stars are getting faded from Hollywood. In her opinion piece, the ‘Friends’ (1994-2004) star stated, “No one is ever going to be famous the way she is. That kind of mass-fame phenomenon burning so bright for so long, it’s just not achievable today. She is like a silent-film star among a generation of TikTok dipshits.”
Aniston shared that whenever she thinks about the situation, it gives her chills. She further said, “I’m a little choked up. I feel like it’s dying. There are no more movie stars. There’s no more glamour. Even the Oscar parties used to be so fun.”
Since then, Aniston has become a point of discussion on social media. And now, after her statement, Oscar winning director, Quentin Tarantino has also come forward and acknowledged Aniston. As we all know, Tarantino is quite eminent for his marvellous action, thriller and crime genre films. Since the ‘90s, from ‘Pulp Fiction’ (1994) to ‘Kill Bill’ franchises (2003), to ‘Django Unchained’ (2012), to ‘Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood’ (2019), the director has given total ten films all these years and all have achieved massive successes.
Not only that, the director has also won two-time Oscar for ‘Pulp Fiction’ in 1995 and for ‘Django Unchained’ in 2013 and has also got nominated three times for ‘Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood’ in 2020.
However, in an recent interview with ‘2 Bears, 1 Cave’ podcast with Tom Segura, Tarantino criticised the superhero genre market and accused Marvel Studios for ruining Hollywood stars beyond recognition. With sheer disappointment, Tarantino explained that why there are no more real movies stars in Hollywood now, “I mean that is one of the and I’m not even putting them down frankly, to tell you the truth. But that is one of the legacy of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood movies.”
“Part of the Marvel-ization of Hollywood is you have all these actors who have become famous playing these characters. But they are not movie stars. Right? Captain America is the star. Or Thor is the star. I mean, I’m not the first person to say that. I think that’s been said a zillion times, but it’s like, you know, it’s these franchise characters that become a star”, Tarantino further continued.
Tarantino also clarified that he doesn’t hate Marvel films, but is totally against the idea of being the only thing Hollywood can think of in recent times and that it has also been the only attraction for the audiences as well. Even earlier, before speaking up about the topic, Quentin absolutely rejected directing any films for Marvel. He said, “You have to be a hired hand to do those things. I’m not a hired hand. I’m not looking for a job.”
