    Rosie O'Donnell Was "Loathed" By Brad Pitt And Edward Norton After Spoiling The Ending Of "Fight Club"

    "I only found it out a long time after the incident."

    The first rule about fight club? You definitely don't spoil the ending of Fight Club on your talk show.

    Apparently Rosie O'Donnell didn't get that memo back when the film debuted in 1999.

    And to make things worse, Rosie says she didn't realize she spoiled the ending for YEARS!

    "I was just talking. I didn't think it was good...it annoyed me, the movie. It just annoyed [me]. I was saying the Sixth Sense makes sense, but this one doesn't make sense because the thing at the end is sort of, well, I don't know — that's what I said," Rosie explained on SiriusXM.

    It wasn't until years later that Courtney Love filled her in and let her know how the film's stars, Edward Norton and Brad Pitt, felt about the incident.

    "Nobody said jack shit to me for a good three years, maybe even four years — and I knew Courtney Love. She says, on my show, she says to me, 'Oh my god, Ed Norton and Brad Pitt, they're so mad at you for what you did,'" Rosie revealed.

    She continued, "I was like, 'What did I do?' It was three years later! She says, 'You ruined the Fight Club ending.' I only found it out a long time after the incident."

    "So apparently I was loathed by the men in that for a long time, possibly still, but I had no idea that I had even done it," Rosie shared.

    It seems like the men have put the incident behind them though, as Edward later appeared on Rosie's radio show and didn't mention it.

    As for what Rosie learned from the situation? She should be a little more careful about her movie reviews.

    "I guess I ruined it for the people who were, you know, who had worked so hard on it. I should be more careful with what I say in a negative way about a movie. You know, if you don't like it, just don't mention it. That sort of would have worked better," Rosie concluded.
