Brett Ratner: Professional Hollywood Director

Brett Ratner is directing X-Men 3. I can't stress that enough. As much as I hate to admit it, he's the guy. He's directing it. Its his deal.

We knew that though, right? Well sure. But, I just wanted that firmly in everyone's head before I linked to the following story.

Ratner's Post-Grammy Freak Out.

Page Six is reporting that Ratner (who is DIRECTING X3) nearly fainted after an argument with his girlfriend. Check it:

"Rush Hour" director Ratner caused a one-hour traffic jam after paramedics and a fire truck were called in response to his full-blown panic attack - caused by an argument with his date - in front of the Spanish-style mansion. Cops came later and had the music turned off.

"Ratner was complaining of shortness of breath while leaning by the VIP check-in desk," a witness told The Post's Braden Keil. "My heart is racing," the witness overheard him repeating.


Jesus. This guy can't handle an argument with his lady friend, but yet he's in charge of a huge movie franchise? How does that work? This guy almost got the chance to helm Superman! But, like an opossum he swoons when confronted by drama.

Well, that's just great. And was a firetruck really necessary? Couldn't they just, I dunno, fan him or give him an aspirin or spray him in the crotch with seltzer water? Fuck. Where is J.J. McClure when you need him?!?

But I guess the hour long traffic jam Los Angelinos experienced is nothing compared to the train wreck X3 is shaping up to be. All those movies with Jackie Chan and Ratner didn't learn karate, he just learned ka-razy.

Oh, and just in case that story didn't make you think the Rat-man was nutzoid? Check his Christmas card:

He really wants to be Wolverine. Especially from the issue where Wolvie gets into a heated discussion with Jean Grey and passes out like a little bitch.

That one's his favorite.
