Zac Efron’s turn as serial killer Ted Bundy in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is freaking the entire internet out—and now one of his survivors is weighing in.
Kathy Kleiner Rubin was attacked by Bundy in her sorority at Florida State University in 1978. So, how does she feel about Zac’s portrayal of the man who tried to kill her? Surprisingly at peace.
“I don’t have a problem with people looking at it, and as long as they understand that what they’re watching wasn’t a normal person,” she told TMZ. “I believe that in order to show him exactly the way he was, it’s not really glorifying him, but it’s showing him, and when they do say positive and wonderful things about him… that’s what they saw, that’s what Bundy wanted you to see.”
Rubin added that “The movie does glorify it more than I think it should be. But like I said I think everyone should see it and understand him as what he was even when he was the perfect son. I think hopefully it will make women […] be more aware of their surroundings and be cautious. He had different tactics that he used for people to help him get in cars or do things, and in your gut, if you just feel that something doesn’t feel right, just say no.”
