Jake Busey Wishes Olivia Munn Had Waited to Speak Up About Predator Sex Offender
The Predator star Jake Busey may have just voiced the rationale that apparently led several of Olivia Munn’s co-stars to ostracize her after the actress pushed to cut one of her scene partners from the film—after learning that he is a registered sex offender. According to Busey, “the timing could have been better”—meaning that Munn may have gotten more support if she had waited to speak up until after the film’s release.
“I think it could’ve been done like a month from now, and let the studio and the director have their night of the release and the movie,” Busey told Us Weekly, “and not destroy the movie over a discovery that was made a year after filming—and 10 years after the incident. I think the timing could have been better. The director was in tears at the red carpet, which is not really the way you want it to be. But it’s done, it’s put to bed.”
The discovery in question came when Munn found out from an acquaintance that Steven Wilder Striegel, with whom she shared one scene in The Predator—his sole scene in the film, which has now been cut—has been a registered sex offender since 2010, when he pleaded guilty to trying to lure a 14-year-old girl into a sexual relationship. When Munn informed her co-stars, she says, studio 20th Century Fox chastised her; her co-stars, meanwhile, were slow to publicly show their support for her, even giving director Shane Black a standing ovation at the film’s Toronto Film Festival premiere (which occurred after news broke about the cut scene and Munn’s role in its excision). – Source
