ABC News' Sheila Marikar (@SheilaYM) reports:

Sarah Palin may create buzz that other movie industry newcomers can only dream about, but she's not fond of many Hollywood heavyweights.

After the Tuesday premiere of "The Undefeated," the documentary that chronicles her life and political rise, Palin chastised the stars who blast her in a montage of news clips and TV outtakes early in the film. Matt Damon compares Palin to a "really bad Disney movie," David Letterman calls her "slutty," Bill Maher and others hurl slurs.

"It makes you want to reach out to some of these folks and say, 'What's your problem? And what was the problem? And what is the problem?'" Palin said when asked by reporters what she thought of the celebrity backlash.

"What would make a celebrity, like you saw on screen, so hate someone that they'd seek their destruction, their death, the death of their children?" she continued. "What would make someone be so full of hate and, I guess, a sense of being threatened that they would want to see that person destroyed?"

Beyond rhetorical questions, though, Palin said she couldn't care less about her famous haters.

"There's never really a venue that absolutely lets somebody set the record straight," she said. "I mean, there are so many false narratives about me, about Todd, about our kids, about my record, about my team that has worked so hard together, that there's never gonna be a way to absolutely set the record straight."
