Christopher Nolan’s Peloton instructor speaks out after she bashed ‘Tenet’: ‘Critique my class!’

Christopher Nolan’s Peloton instructor hater has responded to him. 

On Thursday, the “Oppenheimer” and “Batman” director, 53, called out Peloton instructor Jenn Sherman for slamming his movie “Tenet” during a spin class that he took.

Nolan didn’t name names of the instructor or the film, but social media detectives tracked the footage down and figured it out. 

“Directors have a complex emotional relationship with critics and criticism,” the “Interstellar” and “Inception” director said in his Jan 4. acceptance speech for “best director,” after winning that prize from the New York Film Critics Circle on Thursday. 

While standing at the podium to accept his award, he told an anecdote about Sherman — who he referred to as “the instructor” — bashing him as he sweat and followed her instructions.

“I was on my Peloton. I’m dying. And the instructor started talking about one of my films and said, ‘Did anyone see this? That’s a couple hours of my life I’ll never get back again!’” Nolan said, laughing. 

“When (film critic) Rex Reed takes a s— on your film, he doesn’t ask you to work out!”

In the resurfaced footage of Sherman’s class from 2020, she said, “Someone’s got to explain this. Yeah I’m not kidding, what the f— was going on in that movie?” she said at the time, referring to “Tenet,” starring Robert Pattinson and John David Washington.

“Seriously, you need to be a neuroscientist to understand. And that’s two and a half hours of my life that I want back!”

After Nolan’s acceptance speech made headlines, it came to Sherman’s attention, and on Thursday, she responded via Instagram

Sherman, who has over 200k followers, captioned her video, “To Mr. Christopher Nolan…(never thought I’d type that).”

In a response video of her talking – with a screen shot of the Variety article about Nolan’s comments in the background – she said, “Huge day for me when I come to find out that the one and only Christopher Nolan, one of the leading filmmakers of the 21st century, knows who the hell I am. I was excited…And then I read the article.”

She went on to say that 2020 was “a dark time.” 

She reminisced about the incident, “I’m up on the platform, teaching my little class and I’m running my mouth off like I’m known to do. And I make a random comment about a movie that I’ve seen the night before.”

Sherman marveled, “What do you think the odds are that the director of said movie would take that ride some four years later? That would only happen to me!”

Sherman said that she, “May not have understood a minute of what the hell was going on in ‘Tenet, that sh-t went right over my head,” but she went on to praise “Oppenheimer.”

The movie is nominated for eight Golden Globes Sunday night, including best director for Nolan – and it’s expected to receive Oscar nods later this month. 

“I have seen ‘Oppenheimer’ twice and that’s six hours of my life that I don’t ever want to give back,” she praised the film.

Sherman then invited Nolan to take a Peloton ride with her in person.

“You can critique my class. We’ll have a great time. You’ll sit front row and I promise you, it will be insult free!”
