Bryan Cranston calls Godzilla a jerk and has a terrible body odor

According to on Friday, in an interview with Bryan Cranston for the new "Godzilla" movie, the star had a few chosen and unfavorable words about his scaly co-star. The beast would not even return the interviewer's calls, but yet Cranston had no problem being available to talk about the new movie.

Cranston gave examples of Godzilla's behavior like hardly ever coming out of his trailer or asking for specialty foods like goats. He also spoke of a pungent body odor that was difficult to work with. Otherwise though, once the monster started to act, it all turned out pretty nicely. It's not uncommon to always have that one talented actor that simply has too much of a high opinion of him or herself. Of course, Godzilla could be either gender, so the point is moot.

There was a time during the interview with Godzilla actually called the broadcast journalist during the interview and both were appalled at the the lack of courtesy that was displayed. Cranston didn't want to have his name even mentioned in conversation and the two of them speculated that Godzilla could be off enjoying his own time in Tokyo and not even promoting his own film.

Cranston even held some animosity of not having the film named after his own character, Joe Brody. In fact, he would've much preferred "Joe" over "Cranston" as a movie title. However, considering the star power that Godzilla holds and the fact that the name itself strikes fear into men more so than "Joe" does, creators decided to go with that.

Such fear entails the monster stomping everything in sight leaving a trail of destruction behind. Not only that, Cranston's angst is equally matched to his own character who looses his own wife during an investigative response to some activity going on under ground. Joe Brody wants answers and suspects something is up other than just some kind of facilitated accident. The fact that back in the 50s they tried to subdue or kill the monster via nuclear attacks had nothing to do with actually testing the ordinance at all.

The film stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Joe's son Ford Brody, "Avengers: Age of Ultron's" Elizabeth Olsen, and Ken Watanabe.
