Olivia Munn Honored By Creative Coalition, Says Not One of Her Co-Stars Reached Out After 'Predator' Controversy

Olivia Munn Honored By Creative Coalition, Says Not One of Her Co-Stars Reached Out After 'Predator' Controversy

Olivia Munn is honored at The Creative Coalition’s Spotlight Awards dinner at The House of Aurora on Saturday (September 8) in Toronto, Canada.

The Predator star gave a 12-minute acceptance speech and spoke about the controversy surrounding the scene cut from the upcoming blockbuster film. If you didn’t see the news, lasts month, Olivia discovered that a sex offender was in a scene in the film and Fox eventually cut the scene.

Olivia‘s speech at the event was eye-opening with regards to what happened behind the scenes with her and her co-stars.

“That [story] came out on Thursday and the interesting thing is not one of my cast members reached out to me to say ‘are you ok?’ or ‘thanks’ or anything,” Olivia told the audience. “At the premiere that night I look over and the other five cast members are giving the director a standing ovation, but they didn’t even give me a call that day. I keep pushing forward and keep going knowing that at least you did the right thing, even if you’re not getting that support. The only reason I’m talking about this publicly when usually I wouldn’t talk about something so personal is because today, in the middle of an interview a cast member walked out and refused to do anymore interviews with me because they said questioning when they’re with Olivia is too draining for them. (Pause) I’m trying not to cry. 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.”

“This movie is premiering and it’s a big blockbuster movie and I’ve been told from the top down to shut up. But I didn’t do it. I’m just trying to do what’s right and I think that’s more inspiring and I think helps the film if you want to go to the bottom line. It would help the film more, don’t you think? But, people don’t like to be uncomfortable. Unfortunately my job isn’t to make people feel comfortable, my job is to tell the truth, and I think that’s what we all do as actors,” Olivia continued. Olivia‘s co-star Sterling K Brown did eventually tweet his thoughts to Olivia.

One of Olivia‘s co-stars Keegan Michael-Key‘s representative issued a statement in response to this story, saying, “Keegan was never booked to do an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. His last interview was scheduled after lunch, which he completed. He was always departing TIFF early so he could be home to spend the Jewish holiday with his wife. Furthermore, Keegan reached out to Olivia privately last week to let her know how proud he was of her and echoed that sentiment in many interviews since then.”

FYI: Olivia is wearing Dolce & Gabbana with Loriblu shoes.

    she should shut up and i hope she loses jobs because she keeps telling this story over and over. she got the guy fired and the scene deleted, what more does she want? a fucking medal? and stop messing with your face, freak

  • https://greymondays.wordpress.com/ grey

    She keeps talking about it bc she is being asked about the controversy and its an ongoing issue happening behind the scenes in which she is being shunned for her actions. U should shut up and inform yourself. Your superficial comment about her face speaks volumes.

  • Silly People

    Why should they ask her if she’s ok? Nothing hsppened to her.

  • la petite bonnieux

    I’m confused as to why she feels like a victim

  • mahbelle

    Her entirely redone face speaks volumes.

  • Sim

    Look a troll with 12 comments …
    Oh please, that’s what publicists are for, do you think if she didn’t want to yammer on about it she wouldn’t shut down the questions.
    And why she playing the victim and throwing her cast under the bus all because they didn’t contact her, to pat her on the back for her ridiculous showboating.

    She should remember she’s a shit actress with averge looks and the quickest way to end her so called career is to keep burning bridges.

    didn’t realize i needed a billion comments to have an opinion.

    What controversy? The guy was fired and his scenes deleted.

    The controversy involving the fact a registered sex offender was hired in the first place with children on set. Whether someone who commits such crime should be given a second chance as Shane Black, the director believed when he hired this friend for multiple movies he was directing.

  • mahbelle

    oh please. she’s making a huge deal out of it and it’s biting her in the ass. some people DO deserve a second chance.

  • https://greymondays.wordpress.com/ grey

    I think the reason she keeps talking about it because her costars are making it seem like what she did is wrong behind the scenes by her costars cancelling interviews with her and giving this director, Shane Black a standing ovation without reaching to contact her at all making it seems like they are backing this director. And yes some people do deserve a second chance but it should be up to the individual who has to work this said registered sex offender to make that decision for themselves. Fact of the matter was no one knew he was a registered sex offender except for this director.

    They don’t need to know the background of every minor player in a movie. Munn is not Julia Roberts and has no say over anything. she’s a thirsty bitch.
