James Cameron won’t save world after all, even though he knows “really, really, really smart people”
Just as we suspected, James Cameron’s plan to save the world and stop the oil spill did not go as well as he had hoped. Upon visiting Washington to offer his brainpower, oceanic expertise and fleet of underwater vessels to the cause, J.C. was given the old heave-ho by BP, which, it turns out, isn’t interested in the filmmaker’s help. Weird. As Cameron said, the BP people are “morons.” He also pointed out that he is connected up the wazoo: “I know really, really, really smart people that work typically at depths much greater than what that well is at.” We can’t quite figure out why they wouldn’t want his help.
