Jessica Biel has added fuel to TV hardman Mr. T’s harsh criticism of The A-Team movie remake after admitting she never saw the original U.S. series he made famous.
Biel plays A-Team character Charisa Sosa in the new film, co-starring Liam Neeson and Bradley Cooper – which Mr. T has blasted for featuring too much sex and violence.
He recently said, “People die in the film and there’s plenty of sex but when we did it, no one got hurt and it was all played for fun and family entertainment. These seem to be elements nobody is interested in anymore.
“It was too graphic for me. I’ve no doubt it will do big business at the box office but it’s nothing like the show we turned out every week.”
Now Biel, 28, has risked angering the muscle man once more after confessing the popular ’80s show was not a part of her childhood – because her parents limited her TV access as a kid.
She says, “My folks didn’t really let us watch any TV, so even if I had been cool enough to catch the show I wouldn’t have been allowed to see it anyway.”
