Murray Slams Difficult Reputation Stories

BILL MURRAY has slammed accusations he is difficult to work with, insisting he only clashes with "obnoxious people".

The LOST IN TRANSLATION actor has little time for those who lack consideration for others.

Murray says, "If it keeps obnoxious people away, that's fine. It makes me think of that line you catch more flies with honey than vinegar.

"People say this to you with a straight face, and I always say, 'Who. Wants. Flies?'"

Murray roots for the underdog and crossed swords with the location manager on his last movie over his attempts to heat a rented house where child actors were performing their scenes.

Of the fracas on the untitled JIM JARMUSCH flick, he says, "(I said) 'Who are you?' She said, 'I'm locations.'

"I said, 'Well, if locations had done their job and made sure it was warm enough for these people, we wouldn't be lighting a fire in the fireplace.'"

At the wrap party, Murray approached the woman again, "I said, 'You know, we had our moment, and I don't apologise for that for a second.'"

However, he congratulated her on excelling at other aspects of her job and adds, "I wanted to let her know I could see it both ways."
