Those who told Newsweek they'd been tricked included film executive Tom Rothman and actress Cameron Diaz, who was starring in the Farrelly brothers' comedy "There's Something About Mary" at the time.

In a 1998 Newsweek article about the Farrelly brothers, the interviewer recounts how the brothers "concocted a variety of clever ploys created to get you to look" at Farrelly's penis, characterizing the sexual harassment as outrageous, but largely accepted, boyish pranks.

"When a director shows you his penis the first time you meet him, you've got to recognise the creative genius", Diaz said at the time.

The acclaimed director issued a statement through his publicists saying the stories' descriptions are true. "It wasn't a pretty sight". 'Tell me, ' I say, digesting this news and feeling a complex mixture of relief and disappointment, 'which you find more tantalizing, the thought of someone laughing at your penis, or the thought of someone laughing at your films?' 'Tantalizing?!' Bobby echoes, perhaps just a fraction alarmed. Look! My cock!' We do a joke where, it's like, Bob says, 'Pete's been really insane, he went out and spent $ 500 on a belt buckle.' I go, 'Bob, it's an investment, it's not a big deal.' He says, 'You're stupid! "I did this decades ago and I thought I was being amusing and the truth is I'm embarrassed and it makes me cringe now".

Producer Jordan Horowitz, best known as the man who took the microphone at the Oscars to announce that "Moonlight", not "La La Land", had won best picture, criticized Vallelonga.

Set in the 1960s, the film stars Mahershala Ali as an African-American musician who hires an Italian-American driver (played by Viggo Mortensen) as his driver on a tour of America's Deep South. It also has four Bafta nominations. "I saw it, as you did, possibly on local CBS news". I'm not going to answer that. I want everybody to see it, so yes, that would be a good thing'.
