'Frozen' Director Apologizes to Us All

"Frozen" director apologizes for "Let It Go"

It's hard to believe that November marked one whole year since the mega-force that is "Frozen" first came into our lives. In these last 12 months, we've watched the movie itself more times than we'd like to admit, laughed through thousands of YouTube parodies, welcomed hoards of "Frozen"-clad Trick-or-Treaters to our doorstep, and ... well, need we go on?

It's been a lot to handle—especially for parents of young kids, whose living rooms have now played the DVD on loop approximately 85,000 times this year and heard "Let It Go" so many times it has driven them to the brink of insanity.

For that last one at least, "Frozen" director Jennifer Lee would like to apologize. The Oscar-winning director recently chatted with The Hollywood Reporter, and admitted that the "Frozen" madness has all been a bit much.

“A year ago, I’d meet people who, when they found out who I was, they’d say, ‘Oh, we love the songs! We sing them all the time,'" Lee shared with THR. But now, she says parents still stop her with comments about the songs, but they aren't always citing their love for the songs in quite the same way. Especially when it comes to "Let It Go."

"I've gone from 'thank you' to 'sorry!'"

It's OK, Jennifer. We forgive you. (But our DVD player doesn't.)

The mom of one did go on to say that she's still incredibly proud of the film and its "strong female lead characters." What's more, she's happy to say that the characters of Ana and Elsa have served as an inspiration for her own daughter, Agatha, who Lee says was bullied in school. "I was bullied a lot as a kid, too," admits Lee, "so we try to look at the world like Anna and Elsa do—how they question, 'Is who I am OK?'—but always manage to be true to themselves."
