Sen. Ted CruzRafael (Ted) Edward CruzBoehner: Trump 'stepped all over their loyalty' by lying to followers The Memo: Biden's five biggest foreign policy challenges Boehner finally calls it as he sees it MORE (R-Texas) is again clashing with one of the stars of his favorite movie, “The Princess Bride,” over an interview the Texas Republican did with The Daily Wire. 

Actor Cary Elwes attacked Cruz for saying in the in the interview that the movie industry always makes “rabid environmentalists” the “bad guys." 

How does it feel to know that not only the entire cast and crew of your favorite movie The Princess Bride, but almost the whole entertainment industry, have nothing but rabid contempt for you? #inconceivable? I think not, you miserable ROUS,” Elwes said on Twitter, referring to a "Rodent Of Unusual Size" from the classic book and movie.


Cruz has not been shy about his love of “The Princess Bride,” often reciting scenes from memory. 

He responded to Elwes with a signed picture of the star, asking, "Does this mean you want your picture back?”


“Nah you can keep it as a reminder of how tragic it is that you had to have someone forge your name. Which makes sense since you are a forgery,” Elwes retorted. 

Elwes has been deeply critical of Cruz, retweeting tweets that accuse him of helping to incite the Capitol insurrection that occurred on Jan. 6, as well as others calling for him to resign.

This is not the first time the two have gone at it on Twitter. 

They previously fought over the “Princess Bride” cast hosting an event to raise money for Democrats during election season.
