Comic-Con 2011: Kevin Smith Once Told Harvey Weinstein To 'Shut The F**k Up' (VIDEO)

Film mogul Harvey Weinstein has cast a large shadow over the entertainment business since first hitting it big with "Pulp Fiction" in 1994 and more recently scoring hits with "The Fighter" and "The King's Speech." He's also responsible for introducing the world to Kevin Smith, whose filthy, geek-friendly movies "Clerks" up through "Zack and Miri Make A Porno" have cultivated a devoted audience, if not established Smith as a flamboyant presence that often puts him at odds with the Hollywood establishment.

And Smith seems to wear this badge proudly. At Comic-Con, he told a crowd of fans an entertaining story from Sundance Film Festival, where he publicly told Weinstein to "shut the f*ck up" when Weinstein was talking on his cell phone at a screening for Smith's newest movie, "Red State."

Smith, who also blogs for The Huffington Post, has indicated that he'll likely stop directing movies after his next film, the hockey comedy "Hit Somebody," and shift his focus to his talents as a producer and media personality.
