Olivia Munn Says She’s Gotten Little Support From Her “Predator” Castmates After Calling Out A Sex Offender 

September 10, 2018 / Posted by:

Recently we all learned that Twentieth Century Fox cut a scene from The Predator after Olivia Munn let them know that the dude she did the scene with is a registered sex offender. Director Shane Black knew about the whole sex offender registration but chose to cast the guy anyway since he wanted to “help a friend.”

To Olivia, it seemed like a no-brainer getting rid of the guy who tried to lure a 14-year-old girl into a sexual relationship over the internet, especially one who the sex offender himself described as a “distant relative”. But apparently, not everyone agrees with her.

According to Vanity Fair (via Yahoo) Olivia has been getting a cold shoulder from her fellow Predator castmates. The whole crew is in Toronto right now for the Toronto International Film Festival to premiere the film, and she spoke with Vanity Fair about how her castmates keep leaving her on Read:

“I kind of feel like I’m the one going to jail… I didn’t go to jail, I didn’t put this guy on our set. I had this scene deleted. Thank God, honestly, that there is social media. It’s the fans and news outlets that’s confirming it to me that what I did was the right thing. If I didn’t have that feedback, I’d kind of go a little crazy thinking, Why am I being treated like this? That’s not O.K., to feel like the bad guy.”

Olivia says that the cast doesn’t want to do promo with her, and one of her castmates actually walked out of an interview the two were in the middle of doing when the topic of the child-predator came up. At the premiere, Olivia said her costars Boyd HolbrookTrevante Rhodes, and Keegan-Michael Key all chose to give Shane a standing ovation, even though no one else did because of the whole knowingly-casting-a-sex-offender thing. But not all castmembers are turning their backs on her. Sterling K. Brown tweeted support for her and said that the right thing was done.

When the L.A. Times story about this mess was released, Olivia reached out to the rest of the cast saying they should maybe release their own statements but none of them thought that was a good idea. She didn’t love that:

“Right now the reality is that there will be people who wear Time’s Up pins and say they support Time’s Up, [but] there will be people in Time’s Up who aren’t really down with the cause.”

I’m sure Olivia Munn is taking some preemptive steps to avoid this kind of mess in the future. Apart from listing: “No registered sex offenders, duh, I don’t know why I need to specify this to you” in her rider, she also has one more requirement: legal and emotional support. Catch Chris Hansen lurking backstage on every set Olivia works on from now on just waiting to surprise someone with some bad news and a legal charge.
