Hollywood has been under pressure to come out and universally condemn Harvey Weinstein and his decades of alleged sexual assault and all-round inappropriate sleazy behavior.
But actors have faced issues when their own inappropriate and sleazy behavior surfaces pretty shortly after they make their comments.
Ben Affleck winced when a video emerged of him groping Hilarie Burton, and Jason Momoa, his Justice League co-star, did not fare much better after he was found to have made a rape joke back in 2011.
“I don’t agree with what Weinstein did,” explained Irish actor Colin Farrell, “but honestly I get so drunk I have no idea what I might have done last week, so I’m checking YouTube to make sure nothing bad has shown up online.
“It’s tough being an actor now. Sidney Poitier and Laurence Olivier never had to put up with this shit.”
