Dominic Monaghan, aka Merry Brandybuck in Lord of the Rings (hence my awful headline), aka Charlie on Lost, recently held a Twitter Q & A for fans, in which he was asked about Matthew Fox (pictured, above, in Alex Cross). Surprisingly, it wasn’t the usual ass-kiss fest we’re used to hearing whenever actors talk about people they’ve worked with.
Becca wrote: “holla at matthew fox and tell him to get a twitter i beg of you”
he beats women. No thanks.
Hahahaha! You British people and your dry sense of humor! No, but seriously though, “beats” is some weird Cockney rhyming slant for “takes out for a nice gravy dinner and always picks up the check,” right? (Though there WAS that one time Matthew Fox allegedly punched a bus driver in the vagina…)
[same Becca] “I KNOW IT WAS WRONG BUT WHAT?! WHAT ABOUT ALL THOSE GOOD TIMES YOU HAD TOGETHER?!”
how do you know we ever did?you don’t know either of us.he beats women.not isolated incidents.often.not interested.
It’s funny that so many people are so wrapped up in their favorite shows that they think of the scenes as the actors just having fun together, rather than it being like a regular job, where you’re usually stuck in a cube next to some fake-cheerful jackass you wish would walk into traffic. The Monaghan-Fox relationship sounds closer to the latter. It continues:
A Lost fan going by the user name of Fate 815 snapped, “Spreading an accusation that EVEN eww-TMZ didn’t make… How classy. Hope Matthew Fox sues you for defamation.” And continued: “He knows nothing, he’s just spreading rumors based on TMZ (!), hates Matthew Fox for personal reasons & bashes him.” Another fan sighed, “I loved Dom but he just lost so much respect from me.”
As for Monaghan, who is not exactly known for talking shit about people, these were last words (on Twitter, anyhow) on the subject:
It’s very difficult to sue someone for speaking the truth. [Jezebel]
Meanwhile, as TheSuperficial points out, the tweets are still there. Meaning Dominic Monaghan says what he means and means what he says. I think he just won himself an honorary FilmDrunk Oscar, which we award only to those who keep it the most real.
Either that, or Matthew Fox is trying to reinvent himself as a villain for his latest movie role, and this is just some kind of viral marketing push. Pretty genius, when you think about it.
