ORSON SPAWN HATE ZAC EFRON FLICK

Iconic filmmaker Orson Welles' daughters are furious at the depiction of their father in new Zac Efron film Me and Orson Welles.

The "Me" is Zac Efron's character - a fan who idolizes the Mercury Theatre enfant terrible in his pre Citizen Kane days.

Orson's eldest daughter, Chris Welles-Feder, attended the New York preem of the indie and she's livid that her dad is depicted as not only a despot but as an adulterous womanizer who cheated on her pregnant mother!

" They took all the negative things and fashioned a character that's a caricature," Chris told the NY Daily News.  "It's laughable."

"It's inconceivable my father would ever act as he did toward Zac Efron's character," Welles-Feder said. "He was known for being kind to his actors."

Half sister, Beatrice Welles, often referred to as the Keeper of Orson's Flame, refused to see the film - period.

We don't know what either of them thought of Vincent D'Onfrio as Orson in the Ed Wood biopic especially since his voice was actually dubbed by Maurice LaMarche of Pinky & the Brain fame!

Pop FYI: The name of the fictional newspaper that Orson Welles character in Citizen Kane ran was The New York Inquirer!
