Olivia Munn is “grateful” for the men and women who have come forward and outed their sexual abusers.
Munn’s personal story is sadly all too common, but it’s now, in today’s recent and controversial climate in Hollywood, that more victims are starting to speak out.
For Olivia, it was a day back in 2004 when she was asked to deliver food to director, Brett Ratner’s, trailer while on the set of After the Sunset. Walking in, she would find Ratner without his pants eating a shrimp cocktail.
“He walked out … with his belly sticking out, no pants on, shrimp cocktail in one hand and he was furiously masturbating in the other,” Oivia said. “And before I literally could even figure out where to escape or where to look, he ejaculated.”
She added, “That did leave an impact on me. How broken do women have to be before people listen?”
Munn is just one of many whose stories sadly fell on deaf ears and failed to see consequences. But, now things have changed.
“It makes me feel very grateful that this is happening in the world right now and that men and women who have been hurt and abused by people who are in position of power are heard today,” the actress told HipHollywood on Wednesday during the SAG Awards nominations ceremony.
She continued, “We are actually seeing consequences. There needs to be more consequences. A lot of people are waiting for us to be quiet. They are doing just enough to pacify us, but there’s a deeper problem. The system is faulted. There’s a lot of people who colluded to keep these people in power.”
The 37-year-old concluded, “It’s not just the abusers, it’s the other people who were complicit in allowing this to continue.”
It was the Roseanne actress who also just called Russell Simmons a douchbag for his apology to sexual assault accuser, Jenny Lumet.
