Beloved director Cameron Crowe's new film Aloha is struggling to stay afloat after harsh waves of negative reviews!

The Bradley Cooper rom-com barely made a splash it's opening weekend, coming in sixth at the box office with only $10 million. (Compared to San Andreas, which made $54 million!)

Critics have been blasting the Almost Famous director for whitewashing a film that takes place in Hawaii — specifically Emma Stone's character Captain Allison Ng, who in the film is one-quarter Hawaiian with a half-Chinese father.

Now, the 57-year-old has issued a "heart-felt apology" to those who didn't agree with the casting choice. He explained that Stone's character was based on a real redhead who was always frustrated that she didn't look the part of her Hawaiian heritage.

Crowe wrote the apology on his blog TheUncool:

"I have heard your words and your disappointment, and I offer you a heart-felt apology to all who felt this was an odd or misguided casting choice. As far back as 2007, Captain Allison Ng was written to be a super-proud 1/4 Hawaiian who was frustrated that, by all outward appearances, she looked nothing like one. A half-Chinese father was meant to show the surprising mix of cultures often prevalent in Hawaii. Extremely proud of her unlikely heritage, she feels personally compelled to over-explain every chance she gets. The character was based on a real-life, red-headed local who did just that."

The director continued to explain that the production employed a ton of locals and casted a bunch of Hawaiian actors — who were supporting characters for white leads Cooper, Stone, and Rachel McAdams.

But it seems as though Crowe learned his lesson. In the future, he plans to tell more stories with racial diversity!

Do YOU think the director's explanation will save Aloha from sinking?

Bradley Cooper sure moves fast!!

Once we learned about Bradley's new romantic fling with gorgeous model, Irina Shayk, we HAD to consult our favorite astrologer of all time, Terry Nazon!

So, what did Terry have to say about the actor's latest romance? Will this new affair fizzle out like the 40-year-old's last relationship with Suki Waterhouse?

[ Related: Are Bradley And Irina Getting… SERIOUS?! ]

Ms. Nazon revealed:

"With exes waiting in the wings, is the hot romance between box office heartthrob Bradley and model turned actress Irina true love or just a rebound romance? The stakes are high with both Bradley's career and Irina's career on the rise. Neither one will let anyone nor anything get in the way of their success especially a trivial thing like emotions or love. A Capricorn like Irina have one thing on their mind always, climbing the mountain of success! With her Capricorn Sun and calculating Scorpio Moon, Irina's an impressive combination of sexy steel and strength. Her planets reveal that when there's no trust she'll simply shed her tears alone and get on with things. It's interesting to note that both Bradley's ex-girlfriend Suki Waterhouse and Irina Shayk are both strong Capricorn ladies and both are foreign."

Hmm, it sounds like Cooper sure has a type!! We can totally see Irina as a "strong" lady!

It seems the studio released the clip in order to combat negative reviews for the star studded film. The movie currently has a 13% rating on Rotten Tomatoes! Oh no!

The released clip sets up a love triangle to be the driving plot of the film between Stone, Cooper and Rachel McAdams. That doesn't sound so bad!!

The film has been under fire recently for controversial comments made by Cameron Crowe regarding Bruce Jenner's transition — as well as being criticized for white-washing the cast. Whomp, whomp!

We're not sure what will be a bigger disaster film, San Andreas or Aloha!
