Brett
reportedly made Ellen uncomfortable with a degrading comment during a cast and crew meeting before filming, which stayed with her long after the incident.

“I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself. I knew I was gay, but did not know, so to speak. I felt violated when this happened. I looked down at my feet, didn’t say a word and watched as no one else did either. This man, who had cast me in the film, started our months of filming at a work event with this horrific, unchallenged plea. He ‘outed’ me with no regard for my well-being, an act we all recognize as homophobic,” she wrote.

Several other actresses, including Olivia Munn, have already spoken out against the director.

“Don’t compare wrongs or criminal acts by their degrees of severity. Don’t allow yourselves to be numb to the voices of victims coming forward. Don’t stop demanding our civil rights. I am grateful to anyone and everyone who speaks out against abuse and trauma they have suffered. You are breaking the silence. You are revolution.”

    if she didn’t know she was gay, how did he know she was gay? regardless what he said what disgusting.

  • Maria M.

    “Boo hoo, he said I was gay in front of everyone before I came out!” So, I thought she is proud? Or she wasn’t proud back then before it hit mainstream? If he knew she was gay, she was out alright just not publicly, not in front of her producers. What a hypocrite!

    He can think she is gay because of her manners etc. You may predict Sexuality of someone you don’t know. It is not a rocket science. Ellen page and Kristen Stewart always were in people ‘s gaydar. Would you like if you are gay and at the age of 18 someone is outing you in front of your colleagues in a vulgar way.
