Olivia Munn Sheds Light on 'The Predator' Controversy In Her Interview with Ellen

She opens up about the problematic details behind her latest acting role.

Directly following Olivia Munn speaking out about being shunned by her castmates from The Predator, she reveals more details in an official interview. Munn went public recently with the fact that 20th Century Fox film director Shane Black cast a registered sex offender. Though the scene was cut from the film, actor Steven Wilder Striegel appeared in a scene opposite Olivia.

In an interview with Ellen DeGeneres, Olivia opened up about how she originally learned about Striegel’s background through an acquaintance. According to Munn, Striegel at the time of the conviction was a 38-year-old-man and went after a 14-year-old female relative. USA Today reports that he later pleaded guilty and served six months in prison, following this he was required to register as a sex offender.

After sharing the aforementioned details about receiving the news from an acquaintance, the actress stated:

“I figured, in that moment, they weren’t calling to give me the heads-up. It was going to be something that would get out there. So I wanted to give my co-stars a heads-up so they wouldn’t be blindsided like I was.”

The day after calling her castmates she said she was “chastised” by studio personnel for taking things a step further. She later expressed what led to her moving forward with shedding light on the situation at hand:

“When we do movies, we have this reach. It goes everywhere. There are people all over the world that see what we do. And just that tiny drop of fame can be used to hurt an impressionable person. And that’s just not ok.”
