Top 10 Film Directors Who are Terrible People

Mrveteran
Pretty much what it says on the tin, beyond how this list isn't limited to whether the filmmakers in question are good or bad at their profession, but rather whether they are terrible as general human beings.

The Top Ten

1 Roman Polanski Roman Polanski

Never knew this about him! - Ananya

Drugged and raped a minor in a swimming pool back in the late 1970s, and decided to flee the US in order not to be arrested. - Mrveteran

2 Roger Avary

Arrested for manslaughter after killing his fellow passenger (Andrea Zini) was killed during a DUI incident. - Mrveteran

He voluntarily drunk the alcohol before deciding to drive, did he not? It's therefore his own stupid fault for drinking that and for what happens as a result. The fact that there was a manslaughter charge in there as well, and he doesn't exactly earn my sympathy, especially when his actions led to the death of an innocent person. - Mrveteran

3 Stanley Kubrick Stanley Kubrick Stanley Kubrick was an American film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer, editor, and photographer.

The way he treated Shelley Duvall on in The Shining was pretty deplorable. Not to mention how he screwed Sidney Lumet over among other things doesn't help his reputation. - Mrveteran

4 Frank Miller

Racist, sexist and utterly nasty human being who whinges about how America doesn't do enough to fight their enemies, all the while not being arsed to fight on the frontlines himself. Grant Morrison was right about this stupid clown. - Mrveteran

5 Spike Lee

Whingey politically correct doofus who likes to pull out the race card whenever he can, even if it disregards history (like his moaning over the film Flags Of Our Feathers) and nearly put an innocent family in danger after releasing their home address, thinking it was George Zimmerman. Clint Eastwood was right. This cretin should learn to 'shut his face'. - Mrveteran

6 Quentin Tarantino Quentin Tarantino Quentin Jerome Tarantino is an American filmmaker and actor. His films are characterized by non-linear storylines, satirical subject matter, an aestheticization of violence, utilization of ensemble casts consisting of established and lesser-known performers, references to popular culture, soundtracks ...read more.

Beyond ruining modern cinema and letting his ego ruin many of his films, he is also an unstomachable person too. His pompous and arsey behaviour in his interviews makes him extremely unlikable, while his political views are those of a deranged millionaire moron. His claim that cops are killers at a Black Lives Matter event left a sour taste in the mouth, since most cops aren't so and are paid a pittance of what this guy makes to protect all the millions he has. - Mrveteran

7 Uwe Boll Uwe Boll Uwe Boll is a German-born Canadian filmmaker and restaurateur, whose work includes several films adapted from video games.

Tax-dodging pansy who can't take criticism and wanted to fight his critics. What a clown. - Mrveteran

8 Troy Duffy
9 David O. Russell
10 James Cameron James Cameron James Cameron is a Canadian film director, producer, screenwriter, and deep-sea explorer. He is best known for his films, The Terminator, Aliens, Terminator 2: Judgement Day, Titanic, and Avatar. He is also the third person in history to reach the bottom of the Mariana Trench, the deepest part of the ...read more.

He's been known to be rude to the people he's worked with on his films.
