Lori Petty on 'Point Break' remake: 'That's some stupid s--t right there'
The Point Break remake got its first trailer a few weeks ago, and people aren’t too excited. Especially Lori Petty, who played Johnny Utah’s (Keanu Reeves) love interest, Tyler, in Kathryn Bigelow’s 1991 action film.
When she was asked at the Orange is the New Black premiere on Thursday about the new film, out this Christmas, she held few, if any, punches. “I think it’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard,” she told The Hollywood Reporter. “I got a phone call from my manager: ‘Why did you dis the new Point Break?’ Because that’s bulls–t! That’s some stupid s–t right there!”
Point Break grossed just over $80 million worldwide in its initial run but caught on later: Who can really deny Keanu, Bigelow, and, of course, the Swayze? Maybe Petty’s upset, as she was told there were a lack of rubber president masks visible in the first trailer; she still hasn’t watched it.
