Rami Malek Responds When Asked If He Regrets Working with Bryan Singer on 'Bohemian Rhapsody'

Rami Malek received his very first Oscar nomination this morning for his work on Bohemian Rhapsody, and while doing some press today, he was asked about working with director Bryan Singer.

“Do you have any regrets about working with Bryan Singer? Did you weigh the allegations that were out there about him before signing on?” the Los Angeles Times asked Rami.

“As far as I knew, I was considered before Bryan was even attached. So I had my head down preparing for this for about a year ahead of time, and I never really looked up. I didn’t know much about Bryan,” Rami said. “I think that the allegations and things were, believe it or not, honestly something I was not aware of, and that is what it is. Who knows what happens with that … but I think somehow we found a way to persevere through everything that was thrown our way.”

Rami was then asked, “There are also a lot of fans who don’t quite know how they should feel about the film given Singer’s involvement. What would you say to them?”

Rami responded, “I think they can understand that Bryan Singer was fired from the film. And that can be something that they can look at from a perspective of understanding why they can appreciate the film. And as far as I’m concerned, I never want to take away from Freddie’s story. I think that puts a button on it in a number of ways.”
