Olivia Munn finds little support from 'Predator' peers

Fox pulls scene from ‘The Predator’ after director cast friend — a registered sex offender — in film

Fox pulls scene from ‘The Predator’ after director cast friend — a registered sex offender — in film

On Saturday, the 38-year-old actress attended the Creative Coalition's Spotlight Awards Dinner at the House of Aurora in Toronto, Canada, where she was honored. At her request, the scene has been removed from the film's final cut. "But I deserve to make that choice for myself", said Munn.

"I keep pushing forward and keep going knowing that at least you did the right thing, even if you're not getting that support".

Olivia said, "that's not Ok, to feel like the bad guy". I'm trying not to cry.

But after shooting wrapped, Munn discovered that Striegel had pled guilty to two charges in 2010 after being accused of sexually propositioning a teenager by email.

She also claimed that Black had not directed an apology to Munn and that she did not appreciate seeing his statement "online with everyone else".

Munn went on to add that, although she hasn't been embraced by her co-stars, she is feeling the support she needs.

Swedes weigh choices before vote likely to boost far-right
Emilia Orpana said she and another party supporter were threatened by two young men who called them "damned racists". The influence of the far right is being increasingly noticed in Sweden as security and immigration top the agenda.

"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". It's the one profession that's protected in the constitution. "I was disappointed in the situation, and I'm happy that Liv spoke up". "It's a small grain of sand on an entire beach". However, despite Fox ultimately cutting the scene, Munn has spoken out about how her concerns were initially met with silence, and how that lack of communication was disheartening and frustrating.

After learning more details, "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", Black says, per the AP, apologizing to those "I've let down by having Steve around them".

"Especially [Munn], who was the only member of the principal cast who had to work with him. Now that the scene is deleted I think audiences will love it".

As a reporter began to ask her about the incident, one of Munn's co-stars walked out of the shot, to avoid having to talk about it with Olivia present. "And I'm sorry you've been the only one to speak up publicly", he wrote. "I was not at [the Toronto International Film Festival] so I didn't have an opportunity to be there with you". In the end, Fox chose to axe the scene.

Black, who cast longtime friend Striegel in the film as jogger hitting on Munn's character, first defended the move in the original Times report.

Munn stars in the film alongside Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes, Thomas Jane and Keegan-Michael Key, in additon to "This Is Us" star Brown and "Room" breakout Tremblay.
