An actor, and friend of director Shane Black, got his scene cut from The Predator after his acting partner Olivia Munn went to Twentieth Century Fox and told them he’s a registered sex offender. Olivia then revealed during the film’s stint at TIFF that she’d become the pariah of The Predator cast for speaking out. Sterling K. Brown eventually reached out to Olivia on Twitter.
Olivia had said her costars Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, and Keegan-Michael Key all gave Shane Black a standing ovation at the film’s TIFF premiere, which pretty much made it sound like they were firmly on Team Shane. But Boyd has spoken out about Olivia’s decision, and he had some supportive things to say.
Olivia Munn Says She’s Gotten Little Support From Her “Predator” Castmates After Calling Out A Sex Offender
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.
Olivia Munn Got A Scene From “The Predator” Pulled After She Discovered Her Co-Star Was A Sex Offender
A week from today, Twentieth Century Fox will release The Predator into theaters, the fourth film in the Predator series (or sixth, if you count those god-awful Alien vs. Predator films). But there’s one thing that will be missing from it. I guess you could say the titular predator wasn’t the only predator on the set of The Predator.
Obviously nothing can ever top the legendary sequinned charisma of Lil’ Kim’s purple nipple cover at the 1999 MTV VMA’s, but that’s not nearly a good enough excuse for people not to try. An iconic look is like rolling dice; you might wear something that ends up in one of those Best Looks of ALL TIME galleries for the rest of the internet’s existence, or you might be just wearing clothing. Cardi B could have shocked eyes by showing up in big hair, a dramatic cape, and no pants, but – yawn – been there, done that. Instead, Cardi B made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth last month in a purple gown by Nicolas Jebran and a pussycat wig. Cardi is giving me eccentric Beverly Hills housewife at a charity gala trying to steal the spotlight from her rival Bitsy Saint Claire. Wait a second – rich, attention-getting, short dark hair, daughter’s name spelled with an unnecessary K? Kris Jenner must be so flattered right now.
There were some real upside down and sideways looks on display at the The Council of Fashion Designers of America awards in NYC last night. Most notably Whoopi Goldberg giving us Little Bo Peep who lost her sheep and was forced to go to the big city and take out a bank loan for more, wearing her best Big Business suit. The added bonus of that suit is that those giant bell bottoms probably ring so damn loud, the sheep should have no problem finding their way back home.
Other notable looks included: Cate Blanchett‘s tuxedo/ baked potato/ butcher’s apron combo, and the night’s host Issa Rae’s belt that read “Every Nigga Is A Star”. All of those looks and more are in the gallery but for now, we’ve got plenty of high fashion to keep us in “what is going on here”s for a week.
The Met Gala isn’t a human and isn’t even alive, and yet, that bitch is still getting more action than me.
The theme for the Met’s costume exhibit is Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and Catholic Imagination, but the dress code for the Gala was “Sunday best.” Now, my Sunday best is a faded black Dollywood t-shirt and some Fruit of the Loom sweat shorts covered with chicharron crumbs, wine splatters and lube drops from snacking, boozing and watching porn on my couch. But I guess “Sunday best” to famous rich hos is a crown that weighs more than their head and all of the fabric found in the “Perfect For Granny’s Living Room Curtains” section at Hobby Lobby.
