Widely known as a polarizing figure in politics and media, Sarah Palin has become well-versed in the good, bad and ugly that comes with the territory. Following a screening of the film, 'The Undefeated,' Palin lashed out at some of her Hollywood detractors featured in the soon-to-be released pro-Palin documentary, calling the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Madonna, and David Letterman "full of hate."
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter at the film's Pella, Iowa premiere Tuesday night, Sarah Palin says hearing the nasty comments leave her questioning, "what would make a celebrity, like you saw on screen, so hate someone that they'd seek their destruction, their death, the death of their children? What would make someone be so full of hate and, I guess, a sense of being threatened that they would want to see that person destroyed?"
While she finds this "hate" uncalled for, Palin is confident 'The Undefeated' will allow her and her supporters a venue to correct misconceptions. She tells THR, "there are so many false narratives about me, about Todd, about our kids, about my record, about my team that has worked so hard together." Palin explains, "I think the movie does that for me."
Directed by Stephen K. Bannon, 'The Undefeated' features interviews and commentaries from Alaskans who played different roles in her political rise to national prominence as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate in 2008, as well as a number of her passionate supporters. It will play in limited distribution in AMC Theatres the week of July 15.
