"The Most Hated Woman in America" had its world premiere in Austin which was fitting since the story of Madalyn Murray O'Hair ended in Central Texas.
The film focuses on the life of O'Hair, founder of the "American Athiests", who was a villain to some and a hero to others for her views. The film has renewed interest in her story locally as well.
Director Tommy O'Haver, who co-wrote the film with Irene Turner, walked the carpet along with stars Melissa Leo, Josh Lucas, Michael Chernus and Sally Kirkland. They spoke to FOX 7's Tania Ortega.
