Rosie O’Donnell addresses her infamous spoiling of the ending fight Club during an episode of Rosie O’Donnell Display.
The spoiler came in a 1999 episode when the David Fincher-directed film was recently released in theaters.
O’Donnell left the film’s famous ending at a time when people were not aware of the plot that awaited him.
during an interview with The Jess Cagle Show On Cirrus XM Radio (which you can watch below), O’Donnell finally opened up about his spoilers.
O’Donnell said: “I was just talking because I didn’t think” [Fight Club] was good and the sixth Sense was out. I do not know. It bothered me, movie.
“So I was saying – ‘The’ the sixth Sense Makes sense, but it doesn’t make sense because in the end it’s okay, I don’t want to say, but listen – that’s what I did.
O’Donnell said he didn’t know what he had done. She continued: “I didn’t realize. No one said jack shit me for a good three years, maybe even four years.
“And on my show Courtney Love says, ‘Oh, my god, Ed Norton and Brad Pitt are so mad at you for what you did.’ I was like ‘What did I do?’ It’s three years later! She was like, ‘You ruined it’ fight Club ending,’ and I found out long after the incident.”
She continued: “I feel like I’ve ruined it for the people who have worked so hard on it, and I should be more careful about what I say about the film in a negative way. Don’t like it, so just don’t mention it. It would have worked better.”
On DVD Commentary for fight ClubBrad Pitt, the film’s star, addressed his thoughts about the film.
Pitt said: “I guess okay she hated it. She was saying, ‘This movie pissed me off,’ she couldn’t sleep at nights. It hit a nerve.
“It took some nerve whether she wanted to see it or not. But the deal was, she ended up on national television. It’s just unforgivable.”
Last year, Pitt joked that he had forgotten the first rule of fight Club.
