Cut Swearing Says Wilder

Published on March 26, 2008 with No Comments

Veteran funnyman Gene Wilder has called on Hollywood to cut back on excessive swearing in films.

The Stir Crazy star is fed up with hearing curse words in modern movies, and wishes writers would try and pen less predictable dialogue that relies more on invention than vulgarity.

Wilder, 74, says: “I’m so tired of the ‘F’ word in movies. Jimmy Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable – they didn’t have to swear and they were powerful. You got everything. There’s a film… I saw that if you didn’t read or hear the dialogue, it is a good story. And then every third sentence, every 2.5 sentence, they start (swearing) and it puts me off.”
