Olivia Munn Opens Up About Brett Ratner Allegations & the #MeToo Movement

Olivia Munn is on the cover of Rogue‘s Issue N°9, which is available for pre-order now.

Here’s what the 37-year-old Six actress had to say…

On coming forward with sexual misconduct allegations against director Brett Ratner: “Initially, I didn’t publicly call [Brett] out. I wrote a book where I discussed him anonymously. A year later, he named himself and went on to lie about me. A few days after that, he was on the Howard Stern show publicly apologizing for lying, saying he was sorry. Yet, two years after that moment, he gets a $450 million dollar licensing deal with Warner Brothers.”

On taking a stand: “Where is the line? If you don’t draw a line in the sand and say, ‘I’m not gonna work with these people,’ then it’s going to continue. Those who are in power, the movie heads, the executives—why are you working with these people? I’m not saying that people can’t come back from their mistakes, but why is it that when certain people mess up, there’s a formula for redemption? They say they’re sorry, hide away for a little bit, come back, work with the very people they hurt, then resume their position in power, when the rest of us have to fall to the back of the line and work our way back up.”

On the #MeToo movement and coming forward: “One thing that’s important is that we continue to use social media to support people who speak out and show their outrage at abusers. There’s this societal stigma when it comes to [reporting] sexual harassment. Women are seen as liars, men as victims. The truth is that it just doesn’t work that way. To come forward is difficult.”

Ellen Page Accuses Brett Ratner of Sexual Harrassment on the Set of 'X-Men'

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.”

Patty Jenkins Speaks Out About Brett Ratner Allegations After Presenting Him an Award Last Week

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins has released a statement on Twitter about the Brett Ratner allegations, where actresses such as Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge spoke out about sexual misconduct.

“I’m extremely distressed to read these terrible allegations against Brett Ratner. When I spoke of Brett, I spoke of my own experiences with him, which were not these at all. I have never witnessed nor been aware of anything that is now being described. To be very clear, I am definitely not okay with this kind of behavior,” Patty wrote on Twitter. “Sexual harassment and assault are NEVER okay and I stand with and defend all of the men and women who are revealing these horrific encounters all over this industry and this world. I hope their disclosures bring about real change for all of us, and I am deeply grateful to them for their bravery.”

In her statement, Patty is referring to Sunday night’s Jewish National Fund, where she presented Brett with the Tree of Life award.

Brett Ratner Is Suing a Woman Who Accused Him of Being a 'Rapist' on Facebook

Brett Ratner has filed a defamation lawsuit.

The 48-year-old director and producer, who was met with sexual harassment allegations made by six women in the L.A. Times on Wednesday (November 1), filed the suit against Melanie Kohler in Hawaii federal court after she wrote a Facebook post calling him a “rapist,” according to documents obtained by Variety.

Melanie was not a part of the L.A. Times report. Instead, she posted her story on Facebook more than a week prior to the report. Brett‘s lawsuit describes her Facebook post as libel.

“Commencing on or about October 20, 2017, Defendant recklessly and/or intentionally posted a statement on her Facebook page claiming that ‘Brett Ratner raped [her];’ ‘Ratner was a rapist on at least one night in Hollywood about 12 years ago’; and Ratner ‘preyed on me as a drunk girl [and] forced himself upon me,’” the lawsuit declares.

Brett is seeking general, special, and punitive damages, claiming that the post caused him extreme distress and harmed his personal and professional reputation.
