Shannon Lee says that actor depicting Lee was directed to be a caricature in Quentin Tarantinos Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
Bruce Lees daughter, Shannon, has hit out at the portrayal of her father in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Quentin Tarantinos new film set in the late 1960s film industry, saying it was disheartening and uncomfortable.
Speaking to the Wrap, Shannon Lee said: [Bruce Lee] comes across as an arrogant asshole who was full of hot air, and not someone who had to fight triple as hard as any of those people did to accomplish what was naturally given to so many others.
She added: It was really uncomfortable to sit in the theatre and listen to people laugh at my father.
Lee, who died in 1973, achieved major film stardom in the early 70s via a string of Hong Kong-produced martial arts films, after years of trying and failing to interest Hollywood in his projects. He is portrayed in Tarantinos film by Mike Moh, who Lee claims was directed to be a caricature.
