David Cross

TRASHES Chipmunks Movie --

Slams 'Jewish' Producer

1/10/2012 8:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


0110_david_cross_still
David Cross claims his new movie "Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chipwrecked" is a piece of theatrical GARBAGE ... and blames the disaster on a Jewish producer who personifies negative stereotypes about Jews.

Cross went on "Conan" last night ... and said filming the movie was "the most miserable experience I've ever had in my professional life" -- claiming the producer forced him at "legal point" to spend a week on a cruise ship, filming scenes in a massive full-body pelican costume (below).

011012_filming_chipmunks_tmzCross then attacked an unnamed female "Chipmunks" producer ... saying she was "the personification of what people think about when they think negatively about Jews."

In the end, Cross -- who also starred in the first two "Chipmunks" films -- urged viewers NOT to see the movie ... saying the whole thing is nothing more than a "big commercial for Carnival Cruise Lines."

If he REALLY meant it, he could always give his salary to charity and truly walk away from it. But then, hey they might make another Chipmunk movie and he'd probably scream loudly if told they didn't want him back... What is it about "celebrities" thinking they can bite the hand that feeds? If you don't want the job, let someone who really wants and deserves a chance have it.

He's talking about Karen Rosenfelt. And she's not awful because she is jewish. She is awful because she is awful. One of the more hated people in hollywood. David should have kept his comments at that.

He says he did the first two movies for the money,did he not get paid enough for this one? Is he all of a sudden upset that he ruined his artistic integrity? **** that ball headed **** head. ******* idiot.

you all know David Cross is Jewish right I watched this last night as well and it was quite refreshing to watch somebody not give in to the "marketing" machine of promoting a movie. He spoke the truth. Live with it. And to that stupid producer who wasted money having him go on the ship...give your head a shake.. he's right could have been done with the secondunit and a standin...you would have to have him do studio time for adr anyway.

Two things about this clip:

1.) Ohhh.....booo hooooo, whoa is me...I have to get paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to be on a cruise ship in pelican outfit. How many people out there today in this job climate would ******* kill a Kardashian for the opportunity to get paid to do that? Are we really supposed to feel bad for him?

2.) Conan's reaction to the Jew comment is priceless...."Sorry, I ain't touching that one with a ten foot uncir***cised penis."
