RZA: somebody to watch over him

It must be nerve-racking to sit and watch your first movie on the big screen. But it must be even worse if you have to watch it while sitting next to one of the best directors ever.

That's what RZA says he had to endure for his first screen of his debut film "The Man With the Iron Fists."

He watched it with Quentin Tarantino. They are buds, but RZA says he was nervous when Tarantino asked him to sit next to him as he watched.

The rapper says his concerns faded away when he noticed the famed director was getting into the film.

You can see it for yourself starting today - when it opens nationally.
