Shunned for her sex-offender alert

| Associated Press 11 Sep 2018

Actress Olivia Munn says she has found little support from some of her Predator male co-stars and the movie's director after the Los Angeles Times revealed that Twentieth Century Fox had removed a scene that featured a man who is a registered sex offender.

Munn, 38, alerted the studio to Steven Wilder Striegel's status and the scene was cut within 24 hours.

Doing the rounds at the Toronto International Film Festival at the weekend, Munn described feeling lonely and isolated in the wake of the actiion.

And she told Vanity Fair that she had not heard from director Shane Black, who apologized in a statement for casting his friend.

Some of her cast mates also backed out of interviews with her, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

But one of her co-stars, Keegan-Michael Key, was never booked to do such an interview alongside Munn, explaining he departed the festival early for the Jewish new year holiday.

His publicist has now revealed that Key "reached out to Munn privately last week to express his admiration for her."
