Remember back when James Cameron came up with a plan to stop the oil spill, but BP wouldn’t listen to him? (At the time, J.C. called the company’s execs “morons.”) Well, the rejection still stings. The filmmaker told MTV yesterday that his original report was ignored because it “was contaminated in their minds because there was a Hollywood guy involved.” Big mistake, BP. “At the end of the day, they did exactly what we recommended,” claims Cameron. “I’m not saying they did it because we recommended it. I think they did it because it was the right thing to do. But they basically did exactly what we said should be done.” So, the reason why the spill wasn’t quelled sooner was because James Cameron is too famous? Right.
