  • 039;The Predator' premieres at Toronto Film Festival with controversy in the air and conspicuous silence

Just hours before the premiere of The Predator at the Toronto International Film Festival, Twentieth Century Fox said it removed a scene from the film with actor Steven Wilder Striegel after learning he is a registered sex offender.

Olivia Munn must feel like she's all alone on a deserted island.

In an interview with Vanity Fair, Munn said one of her male co-stars even "walked out" in the middle of a joint interview when the subject came up. "It's the fans and news outlets that's confirming it to me that what I did was the right thing", she told the publication. Black has also issued a public apology, while claiming he'd been misled about his friend's record.

But Munn says she has yet to hear directly from the filmmaker.

"This was an enormously unfortunate chapter in my life, and one that I took, and continue to take, personal responsibility for", Streigel has said. "I did have to reach out again and say I didn't feel comfortable presenting at the MTV Awards with Keegan [Michael Key] unless this guy was out of it".


Olivia Munn promotes The Predator alongside, from left, co-stars Keegan Michael-Key, Thomas Jane, and Sterling K. Brown in July.

"The support from online and when I walk down the street and random girls say "thank you" and 'you're my hero, ' it just means so much because you kind of need that validation sometimes or you think, 'Am I insane?"

"It is true that I pulled out of a small amount of press on Saturday, as this type of social commentary is new to me and given the nature of the originating crime, I felt further discussion could cause unwanted trauma and pain, neither of which I wanted to incite to the anonymous young woman", he said.

Sterling K. Brown has been the only co-star to address the controversy, tweeting this weekend in a tonally confusing thread, "I'm sorry you're feeling so isolated, my dear". I just know how to be honest about it. Per the Times, Striegel began an online relationship with a 14-year-old he described as a distant relative. This part is key as it's understood that Black told none of the cast or crew about Striegel's conviction prior to casting him. He was also put on the sex offender registry, but later appeared in Black's Iron Man 3 and The Nice Guys. Munn notes she "wasn't given that choice", arguing that she will "never give a second chance to anyone who ever hurts a child". "It's a very lonely feeling to be sitting here by myself when I should be sitting here with the rest of the cast", Munn told THR. As you may or may not know, Munn is an outspoken advocate for the Time's Up initiative, and has vociferously criticized people in power who abused their position.

The Predator is out in Australia Thursday 13 September.
