That quote was uttered by Diablo Cody, who wrote it (along with many other insane declarations) on her MySpace blog last week. If you haven't read it, do it now. Your jaw will drop.
The above line is wrong for a number of reasons. First off, I've pretty sure five million 12-year-olds have no idea who Buck Henry is. (Even though they so should.) Secondly, Henry is a witty, satirical genius who co-created the classic sitcom "Get Smart," co-wrote the screenplay to "The Graduate" (which got him an Oscar nod — and yet, he didn't win!) and was "Saturday Night Live"'s reliable, go-to guest host during its early years. It's perhaps best for this gal not to compare herself to such a multi-talented human being as Henry. And thirdly, and this is most important, I don't have to accept a dang thing!
From what I've gathered in her rant, we should all get over the fact that she's an admittedly mediocre hack who lucked into her success. Hey, she may not be Wes Anderson, but she's working with Spielberg and he's not — and neither are you. (She's got chutzpah, I'll give her that.) Just when I had given her a pass for her cute Oscar speech, she pulls this hate-me-now junk, making all the complaints I had about that movie of hers all the more justified.
As a wise man once said, people need haters. They remind talented, successful people that their success is well-deserved. Real talents bask in their haterade because it lets them know that they have a gift people only wish they had. Cody hating on her haters is just redundant.
It also shows they may have a point.
