In an exclusive interview with Variety, Olivia Munn addressed the the casting of a registered sex offender on her new Fox movie “The Predator.”
“When I called, (Fox) was silent for two days,” the actress said at the Toronto Film Festival. Fox later deleted the scene, which featured the cast member hitting on Olivia Munn’s character.
She added: “When you have somebody on a big screen, no matter how small – we’ve all done little parts in movies – that little grain of fame is just enough to reach out and influence somebody who is impressionable and if you have somebody that has a history of using that to abuse children, that’s not OK in my book. And I do believe people deserve second chances, but I do have a hard line when it comes to people who hurt children or animals. You deserve to go make money, but not alongside me in a film. You can go work in a lot of other places or like make an Etsy store or something.”
