Let it never be said that Ridley Scott does not speak his mind.
During a recent junket interview for “The Last Duel” via Zoom, the 84-year-old director offered a characteristically pithy response to a question that seemingly placed some of his earlier films in a bad light.
“It’s a very realistic film,” says the Russian journalist interviewing Scott and the film’s star, Jodie Comer.

“It looks more realistic than ‘Kingdom of Heaven’ or ‘Robin Hood’ if you’re talking about —,” the journalist continues before Scott cuts him off.
“Sir, f**k you. F**k you,” Scott tells him. “Thank you very much. Fuck you. Go fuck yourself, sir. Go on.”
Thank you, Sir Ridley, for the ultimate answer to any and all people measuring "realism" and "historical accuracy" in period films.
