Olivia Munn's 'The Predator' co-stars respond to her feeling 'shunned'

No Caption Provided

Sterling K. Brown has offered his support to The Predator co-star Olivia Munn in light of pressure she's felt after informing Fox that an actor she shared a scene with is a registered sex offender, which prompted the studio to cut the actor's scene from the film. @oliviamunn I hope you don't feel quite so alone. Now Boyd Holbrook, the film's top-billed actor, has released a statement, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "You did the right thing", Brown wrote to Munn in his last tweet on the subject. I don't know how to pretend, I don't know how to skirt around the issue. "I was not at [the Toronto International Film Festival] so I didn't have an opportunity to be there with you". And I'm sorry you've been the only one to speak out publicly. I believe strongly in giving people second chances - but sometimes you discover that chance is not as warranted as you may have hoped.

The actor's words concern the objections Munn raised about the hiring of Steven Wilder Striegel to appear in a scene in the film. "I looked back and I see the guys standing up, and I was just confused, because I hadn't heard from them during the day", admitted the actress.

Olivia Munn is thrilled 20th Century Fox took action against "The Predator", but she was left in the dark for 48 hours. "I'm not crying because I'm sad, it's a very frustrating feeling to be treated like you're the one who went to jail for a crime against a child when all I did was the right thing".

Munn tweeted that the only reason she's still doing press for the film is that she's "contractually obligated".

The 38-year-old told the Hollywood Reporter she "should be sitting here with the rest of the cast" rather than on her own to promote the film. "Having read this morning's news reports, it has sadly become clear to me that I was misled by a friend I really wanted to believe was telling me the truth when he described the circumstances of his conviction", said Black.

John Legend achieves EGOT status, the youngest person to do so
John Legend became the first black man and one of the youngest people to win an EGOT , an Emmy, Grammy , Oscar , and Tony award . John now joins the ranks of other EGOT icons like Audrey Hepburn , Andrew Lloyd Webber , Whoopi Goldberg , and Mel Brooks .

The resulting promo period has, naturally, focused on how both the cast and studio were unaware of Striegel's history, with Black backing out of interviews. The people who are at the top, the people colluding to keep abusers in power, the people who are colluding to turn a blind eye so that they can keep making money, they are the people who created this disparity in the first place.

As it was previously reported, Striegel pled guilty to attempting to convince a 14-year-old girl to have sex with him over email.

Other cast members - including Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane, and Augusto Aguilera - were present at the festival but opted out of the junket after the story surfaced, leaving Munn and Tremblay alone.

However things work out for Black and Munn, you can expect some of this tension to still be in the air by the time The Predator hits USA theaters on September 14th.
