Olivia Munn Finds Little Support From 'Predator' Peers

  • The Predator

Black has not contacted her, and today most of the cast skipped out on a group interview with her at TIFF.

The actress described how she was tipped off by an acquaintance, who told her about Striegel's criminal history.

In an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, airing Tuesday, Munn talks about how people involved in the movie reacted after she spoke out about the controversial casting. A scene with Steven Wilder Striegel, who is a registered seχ offender, has been cut from sci-fi film, upon Munn's insistence.

In 2010 he pleaded guilty after facing allegations that he attempted to lure a 14-year-old girl into a sexual relationship over the internet. "They asked the rest of my cast". A Fox spokesperson told the Times that studios can't run background checks because of legal limitations.

Her Predator castmate Sterling K Brown has come out in support of her online.

"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 said to The Hollywood Reporter, looking visibly disappointed and uncomfortable. And I'm sorry you've been the only one to speak up publicly. "You did the right thing".

Let us know your opinions in the comments (below)! Striegel and Black are longtime friends and Black, in a public apology, said he had simply wanted to help him out but that his actions, he realized, were misjudged. "I believe strongly in giving people second chances - but sometimes you discover that chance is not as warranted as you may have hoped".

What about Munn's other co-stars?

According to Olivia, one of her co-stars refused to do an interview with her standing next to them because it's "emotionally draining" to do interviews when she's there.


Munn stars in the film alongside Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes and Thomas Jane. "I felt it was still appropriate to clap and cheer, but to actually make that gesture to stand up, especially in this moment. and privately I knew that no one reached out to me to say, 'Are you O.K.?' It did feel bad". "I was surprised that none of them did".

"I kind of feel like I'm the one going to jail", said the actress. "Now that the scene is deleted I think audiences will love it".

Tweeted Munn, "Those who know about abuse and ... continue to put abusers in positions of power are complicit". I was not at #TIFF so I didn't have an opportunity to be there with you. She explained that she would rather lose her career than stay silent. "Use your voice to shape the world or others will shape it for us".

Despite reports out earlier this week, Olivia Munn is definitely not engaged to boyfriend Aaron Rodgers. Oh man, new engagement.

Two cast members were not scheduled to do interviews at the time. And [UNKNOWN] wasn't the only family member who thought she heard wedding bells.

She adds: "When I did call my co-stars, I got chastized the next day by people at the studio for telling them". Well, we're glad she has a sense of humor about the whole thing.

'There are people who get mad at you for not helping them bury it.

"My castmembers, nobody said anything to me about it", she claimed.
