What's more, while Munn and her fellow cast members have been on the Predator press circuit speaking about the film and the surrounding controversy, Black himself was "absent" from the press opportunities at the Toronto Film Festival.

"I made an error, a judgment that was irresponsible", Black told the AP at the film's premiere. "You know, I'm not just a kid who can say, 'You know, we're making movies in college".

Black, clearly upset about the reach of the scandal, said, "It really bothers me that this movie, which could have been these lovely people on a attractive night with only this, has been overshadowed in some ways by a stupid decision that I made".

Black admits that his mistake caused "pain to people in the cast" and did not make excuses.

'To be acknowledged by a stranger, on a public platform about this issue is incredibly empowering. Sexual abuse makes people uncomfortable. The consequences of this abuse are profound and permanent for some.

Munn revealed Streigel's past was something she was unaware of prior to signing on, and when she learnt the truth she brought it to the attention of the studio 20th Century Fox - who then cut the scene from the movie. I do feel like I've been treated by some people that I'm the one who went to jail or I'm the one that put this guy on set... She spoke up for me.

The director expressed his remorse over the decision to cast Striegel, and took full responsibility for the fallout.

I have no shame for what was done to me. "You lose trust in everyone around you, and mainly yourself", Carnes continued. "It happened about 10 years ago, he's 38 years old and went after a 14-year-old female relative and when I found that out, I did call Fox and I said, 'We have to delete this scene, ' and they did, thankfully", Munn said on the talk show.

When the story first broke, Black said that he was just "helping a friend", which he later amended to say that he was misled by said friend about the severity of the charges. "The positive feedback from social media towards Olivia Munn is uplifting and feels incredibly supportive for me personally". Your abuse does not define you. The Washington Post generally does not identify victims of sexual crimes, but Carnes said, in a statement provided to the L.A. Times, that she is speaking out to "reclaim" her identity.

Support can come in many forms.

Olivia Munn has admitted she has been "so blown away" by the support she has received after going public with her fight to have a scene with a registered sex offender cut from her latest film, The Predator. I am extremely fortunate to have a Father and Mother that love me unconditionally. In turn she stood for all who have suffered like I have. "Without the support from online, I would have just still been one voice".
