Avatar director James Cameron has fully embraced the woke concept of toxic masculinity, claiming recently that testosterone is a “toxin.”
The comments came during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
He cites his transparency, telling the studio early on if he feels something may shift in the schedule, and says he respects Disney’s marketing prowess. It may also be that his era of F-bomb-laden shouting matches with executives is behind him. “A lot of things I did earlier, I wouldn’t do — career-wise and just risks that you take as a wild, testosterone-poisoned young man,” he says, declining to specify further. “I always think of [testosterone] as a toxin that you have to slowly work out of your system.”
Not only is testosterone toxic according to Cameron, a poison no less, but it needs to be worked out of your system.
His comments are ironic considering many of his successful movies were testosterone fueled including The Terminator, Aliens and the Abyss.
But Cameron’s woke nature has been on display for years, especially with the focus of his anti-military (presumable for being too testosterone fueled) and environmental activist Avatar movies.
In 2009, Breitbart’s John Nolte wrote,
Absent from the big screen for over a decade now, Oscar-winning director James Cameron returns armed with a reported half-billion dollars, a story he’s been desperate to tell for 15 years, and the very latest in cutting-edge visual technology. The result is “Avatar,” a sanctimonious thud of a movie so infested with one-dimensional characters and PC clichés that not a single plot turn – small or large – surprises. I call it the “liberal tell,” where the early and obvious politics of the film gives away the entire story before the second act begins, and “Avatar” might be the sorriest example of this yet. For all the time and money and technology that went into its making, the thing that matters most – character and story – are strictly Afterschool Special.
What a crushing disappointment from one of our most original and imaginative filmmakers.
