    Michael Moore confirms 'American Sniper' director Clint Eastwood once threatened to 'kill' him at awards ceremony
    Documentary filmmaker has been criticized by conservatives for his negative comments about 'American Sniper,' a biopic about the late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

    Left-leaning documentary filmmaker Michael Moore has come under fire from conservatives over his criticism of "American Sniper," but it turns out his cold war with the biopic's director, Clint Eastwood, started ten years earlier.

    Moore took to Facebook to confirm a report on Salon that Eastwood had threatened to shoot him during the 2005 National Board of Review dinner. Moore had been in attendance to receive an award for his scathing indictment of the Bush administration, "Fahrenheit 9/11," while Eastwood was being honored for "Million Dollar Baby."

    "Ten years ago this past week, Clint Eastwood stood in front of the National Board of Review awards dinner and announced to me and to the crowd that he would "kill" me if I ever came to his house with my camera for an interview," Moore wrote on his Facebook page late Thursday about the Jan. 11, 2005, incident.

    "'I'll kill you," Eastwood declared, according to the post.

    "The crowd laughed nervously. As for me, having just experienced a half-dozen assaults in the previous year from crazies upset at 'Fahrenheit 9/11' and my anti-war Oscar speech, plus the attempt by a right wing extremist to blow up my house (he was caught in time and went to prison), I was a bit stunned to hear Eastwood, out of the blue, make such a violent statement."

    At first, Moore said he laughed off the comment with the rest of the crowd, but Eastwood followed up with a gruff, 'I meant it...I'll shoot you.'"

    Though Moore complimented some of Eastwood's films, he took the opportunity to continue to pan the 84-year-old conservative director's latest flick.

    "Now 'American Sniper' - a mess of a film that rewrites history (we invade Iraq as revenge for 9/11), perpetuates a racist sentiment to Arabs (Iraqis are "savages"), has a simplistic Hollywood storyline of the good sniper in white vs. the bad sniper in black), and (in a rare moment of honesty) shows the main characters in the film, the American soldiers, either returning home all messed-up by the war (and with some of them turning anti-war) or in a box," wrote Moore.

    His war of words over the biopic of late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, began shortly after the movie hauled in $105 million in its first week and six Academy Award nominations. Moore labeled snipers as "cowards," before backtracking ...slightly.

    "So ppl want me 2tweet something bout American Sniper?," Moore tweeted on Jan. 19. "Great acting! Powerful message. Sad ending. There."

    Michael Moore is not knowing for stating the truth, but I'm sure there's a link for that.

    When I was in my early 20's and liberal as hell, I thought Michael Moore was awesome. Then, he went on "Politically Incorrect," and said h thought OJ Simpson was innocent. It immediately turned me against him for all time. He's a tubby trouble maker.

    this seems like a silly thing to still be worked up over

    but if someone showed up at my door to interview me I would probably choose to simply say no thank you and close the door

    shooting them is likely a bit over the top

    You gotta remember, most of what we associate with Eastwood has been written by someone else.
    On his own, I do not think he is the sharpest tool in the shed.
