Carrie Underwood thinks her critics need some serious help from above.
Since a lot of people weren’t impressed with the actress and singer’s performance in the recent remake of The Sound of Music, Underwood found herself surrounded by negative reviews. Not only did critics take issue with the performance, quite a few viewers walked away from the experience feeling a little underwhelmed.
Not one to sit idly by while people make mean comments about her, Carrie Understood decided to address the situation on Twitter. In her humble opinion, those folks who continue to make rude and crude remarks about her performance in the remake should immediately seek heavenly assistance.
“Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus. They will be in my prayers tonight… 1 Peter 2:1-25,” the singer tweeted on Friday evening.
In other words, Underwood feels that the folks who are currently trashing her turn in The Sound of Music should “put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander.” Curious parties can read the entire English Standard Version of that passage over at Bible Gateway.
The Inquisitr previously reported that Myles von Trapp Derbyshire, great-grandson of Maria von Trapp, wasn’t very pleased with Carrie Underwood’s casting in the remake. In his opinion, the actress was simply all wrong to tackle the role.
“It’s just upsetting that this could potentially be the final broadcast of our story. And although her voice is amazing, she doesn’t have acting experience… It’s just the overall image, she’s a country star, she won American Idol, she’s very public in kind of a tabloid way,” he said.
Actress Kym Karath, who played Gretl in the original big-screen version of The Sound of Music, was also a little upset about the recent remake. Although she doesn’t have a problem with Carrie Underwood as a singer, she apparently thought the American Idol winner was wrong for the role of Maria Rainer.
“So far only happy with Stephen Moyer. Must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch. Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely, her voice is beautiful, but acting is wrong,” Karath explained.
Critics weren’t exactly thrilled with the live performance of The Sound of Music either. The television event only managed to scrape together a Metacritic score of 53 out of 10 reviews. Check out what the Los Angeles Times had to say about the remake.
“As a stage actress, there was no way to regard [Underwood] as anything but an amateur — good enough, certainly, to convey the meaning of her lines, and sometimes better than that, but lacking weight and substance and the shadings she can bring to a song…. Stephen Moyer had the anger and the stiffness the role certainly requires, but not the humor it needs…. It was helpful, if you wanted to help, to regard this as really terrific community theater, rather than something professional and less than successful.”
