Sam Elliott Apologizes For Anti-Gay Rant About ‘The Power Of The Dog’

Sam Elliott has issued an apology for calling the Oscar-nominated film Power of the Dog a "piece of sh*t western." 

While on a panel in support of 1883, Elliott said, "I said some things that hurt people. And I feel terrible about that." 

Sam also apologized for the homophobic comments he made saying the "cowboys and ranchers in the movie were like Chippendale dancers." 

Elliott even went on to give a specific apology to Benedict Cumberbatch saying, "I can only say I'm sorry and I am. I am." 

Power of the Dog earned 12 Oscar nominations and won an Oscar for Best Director.
