Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin greets supporters as she and her husband Todd, left, arrive for the premiere of a documentary about her entitled "The Undefeated" in Pella, Iowa, on Tuesday.
The first 10 minutes of the documentary "The Undefeated," a film about Sarah Palin, features a spate of celebrities saying disparaging things about the former Alaska governor.
Palin was at the Pella, Iowa, premiere of the film Tuesday night where she not only fueled speculation that she will run for president, but told The Hollywood Reporter that she'd never seen or heard much of the footage that was used to open the film and wondered what would make the likes of Matt Damon, Madonna, Bill Maher and others say such things.
"What would make someone be so full of hate? ... This is the first that I've seen much of that. It kind of takes you back," she told THR. "It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, 'What's your problem? And what was the problem? And what is the problem?'"
The celebrity montage begins with Damon likening Palin to a "really bad Disney movie" and says she's "really scary;" Maher calls her a "dumb tw--" on his TV show; Madonna screams "Sarah F--- Palin" while on stage.
Palin told THR that it would be nearly impossible for her to defend herself against the barbs. "There's never really a venue that absolutely lets somebody set the record straight," she said. "I mean, there are so many false narratives about me, about Todd, about our kids, about my record, about my team that has worked so hard together, that there's never gonna be a way to absolutely set the record straight."
