British actor Cary Elwes, who played "Westley" in the film, sent out a harsh tweet asking Cruz, "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?
