Bruce Lee's daughter slams dad's 'caricature' portrayal in 'Once Upon A Time in Hollywood'



While the box office numbers for "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood" resulted in director Quentin Tarantino's biggest opening to date, not everyone is wild about the drama set in Los Angeles in 1969.


Shannon Lee, the 50-year-old daughter of Bruce Lee portrayed in the film, ripped the depiction of her father in an interview with The Wrap published online Monday. The "Enter the Dragon" star, played in the film by Mike Moh, appears cocky and boastful.

周一,李小龙50岁的女儿李香凝在接受the Wrap网站的采访时,抨击了该影片对李小龙形象的刻画。电影中李小龙由迈克·毛饰演,李小龙曾出演《龙争虎斗,但在《好莱坞往事》中,其形象显得骄傲自大。

“He comes across as an arrogant (expletive) who was full of hot air,” Shannon told the outlet.


Shannon also said her father aimed to dodge scuffles. “Here, he’s the one with all the puffery and he’s the one challenging Brad Pitt," she said. "Which is not how he was.”


Viewing the movie was distressing for Shannon. “It was really uncomfortable to sit in the theater and listen to people laugh at my father.”


She believes Moh was “directed to be a caricature” and that this part diminishes her efforts to keep her dad's memory alive, which The Wrap reports she does via a website, podcast and through the Bruce Lee Foundation.

她认为迈克·毛是“被导演打造成一个夸张讽刺的人物”。据The Wrap报道,她希望通过网站、播客和李小龙基金会告诉人们李小龙是怎样的人,而这部影片让其努力付诸东流。

Matthew Polly, author of the biography "Bruce Lee: A Life," agrees "Once Upon A Time in Hollywood" goes too far.


"Bruce Lee was often a cocky, strutting braggart, but Tarantino took those traits and exaggerated them to the point of caricature," says Polly, who takes exception with Lee boasting about beating boxing champ Cassius Clay (later Muhammad Ali) in a fight.


"Bruce revered Cassius Clay; he never claimed he could beat the champ," says Polly.


USA TODAY has reached out to Tarantino for comment.

If anybody has seen a Tarantino film, ever, they would realize that his characters are ALWAYS over the top. It is not intended to slight the memory of Bruce Lee.

I enjoyed the movie, thought it was really funny. Sure I'm a fan of Bruce Lee, but I can enjoy a good show and don't take things like that too seriously. This is a light hearted film, just enjoy it.

I feel like if you know Quentin's style, you kind of have to take it with a grain of salt since it’s obvious fiction, a trademark of the director to fictionalize historical events and people. Did she think this was a bruce lee, sharron tate bio pic...PLEASE.

I never once thought about Bruce Lee negatively when watching this movie. It was funny but that was it. Never in my mind did I think oh yea Bruce Lee was definitely like that or yea that totally happened. Lets get serious its a movie not a biography.

She doesn't get it. Tarantino could have chosen ANY person from that time to put in his movie and he chose Bruce, so obviously, HE IS A BIG FAN

I thought the scene was funny but in no way made me think any less of Bruce Lee. The movie was fiction.
