More than six months after the release of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and the controversy surrounding the depiction of Bruce Lee’s character in the movie, Shannon Lee is not going to forgive and forget the damage the movie has done to her famous father’s reputation. Shannon Lee is not a fan of the Hollywood director and she made it known from the start of the movie’s release in May that she hated the film and more so the highly controversial scene where Mike Moh, who plays Bruce Lee, portrays the martial arts superstar as a braggart who gets into a fight with Brad Pitt’s fictional character. At the 18th annual Unforgettable Gala, an event honouring Asian-Americans in entertainment, Shannon Lee was asked whether she would be “open” to having a chat with Tarantino about the movie which nabbed five Golden Globe nominations and became a major Hollywood success, raking in more than US$370 million at the box office.

In an interview with Variety , the 50-year-old Shannon Lee said: “I have not spoken to him [Tarantino]. I would imagine that he has no love-lost for me or wants to speak to me but I am always open for a conversation.” Shannon Lee looks after her late father’s estate and heads a number of projects involving the Enter the Dragon actor including this year’s groundbreaking Warrior TV series, where she works as executive producer.

Shannon also said she had complained to Chinese movie authorities about Tarantino’s latest fanfare, echoing the sentiment of many Bruce Lee fans who thought the movie went too far in its depiction of the world’s most famous martial artist. “You know I just complained there [in China], the same I complained here but obviously through China channels. But it was their decision to do whatever they wanted to do with that movie. I was just asked what did I think and I submitted my thoughts about it,” she said. Shannon said it was important that she objected to the summer blockbuster that has upset millions of Bruce Lee fans for its inaccurate and clownish portrayal. Bruce Lee’s daughter is upset Quentin Tarantino didn’t consult her for ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ “Whenever I am asked to express myself about what I think, especially when it comes to something that I have been working so hard to preserve my father’s legacy then I think it’s important for me to speak, you know and be heard ... at least have my opinion be known because I really do think that movie did a disservice to him [Bruce Lee] and disservice to Asian actors and it was really a shame and it undid a lot of things that I’ve been working so hard to move forward,” she said.
