Olivia Munn Finds Little Support From 'Predator' Peers

Share

The Predator actress Olivia Munn is not satisfied with Shane Black's apology for casting Steven Wilder Striegel, a registered sex offender.

Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Munn said her co-stars haven't exactly responded in kind to her blowing the whistle on a registered sex offender - and that includes director Shane Black.

"I want to start by apologizing for this statement coming late in the current conversation", he said. "I looked back and see the guys standing up, and I was just confused because I hadn't heard from them during the day". After notifying Fox of Striegel's history, the scene was removed.

"I kind of feel like I'm the one going to jail", Munn said. Neither Munn nor the rest of the cast was aware of it. I was the only one that did give a statement. What happened to that girl until it came out in the LA Times on Thursday.

She also mentioned the #MeToo movement, saying that it's not only abusers that are in the wrong, but also the people who know about abuse and don't do anything about it are also abusing their positions of power.

Two cast members were not scheduled to do interviews at the time. Nobody talked to me. "But I'm happy that they did obviously because I'm proud of the work we did in this movie, we all worked really, really hard, and I wouldn't be able to morally stand behind this movie with this guy in there". "There are people who get very mad at you for not just helping them bury it ... Now that the scene is deleted I think audiences will love it". The truth is I don't care. Afterall, they are easily one of the most adorable couples in Hollywood, am I right? "I don't want this career".

Munn alerted the studio on August 15 and Striegel's scene was removed within 24 hours, Fox said.

"Good", Ellen said, "I like Sterling".

On Sunday, Sterling K. Brown wrote to Munn online: "I'm sorry you're feeling so isolated, my dear".

The truth is that the situation that we're in over the past year or so, the #MeToo movement, it really exists because the people online who are appalled and outraged and demanding that things be changed. And when someone has been convicted of a crime of a sexual nature involving a child, we have the right to say it's not okay! You and @BonafideBlack may differ when it comes to that issue. Now when I'm being asked about it, I don't know how to lie about it. After Munn finished a group interview with Aguilera and Key for Variety, the remaining cast members-who were not present for the taping-were ushered out of the studio.

'I was not at #TIFF so I didn't have an opportunity to be there with you'. "I so appreciate that you 'didn't leave well enough alone, ' and again, I'm sorry you feel isolated in taking action". "You did the right thing".

Movie bosses at 20th Century Fox agreed to erase the scene and director Shane Black has since apologized for hiring the man in the first place, revealing he lied about the severity of his past sex crime. "I believe strongly in giving people second chances - but sometimes you discover that chance is not as warranted as you may have hoped".

'After learning more about the affidavit, transcripts and additional details surrounding Steve Striegel's sentence, I am deeply disappointed in myself.
