Critic Forgives Gallo For Cancer Hex

Movie critic ROGER EBERT has forgiven cult director VINCENT GALLO for wishing cancer on him.

The 42-year-old lashed out at Ebert after he labelled Gallo's controversial film THE BUNNY BROWN a complete flop.

He was subsequently diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

Ebert recovered - and is happy to have reconciled with the fiery film-maker.

He tells gossip website PAGESIX.COM, "I had a nice talk recently with Vincent. I enjoyed the exchange.

"If you can't take it, you shouldn't dish it out. He had a right to attack me, since I gave Brown Bunny a poor review.

"I like him as an actor and I liked his previous film (BUFFALO 66).

"Vincent is an original."
