Olivia Munn feels 'lonely' having to promote The Predator alone

Sterling K. Brown has commented on the ongoing controversy surrounding The Predator after co-star Olivia Munn said outing a convicted sex offender who worked on the film left her feeling isolated and lacking support from her silent co-stars. @oliviamunn I hope you don't feel quite so alone.

"Many" of Munn's co-stars backed out of scheduled interviews where they were set to appear with Munn, according to Vanity Fair, while one unnamed actor walked out of an interview when asked about the removed scene. "You did the right thing". You deserve to go make money, but not alongside me in a film.

Munn's argument was that not only was she not told about Striegel's conviction, but that she would have to share a scene with him. "I did have to reach out again and say I didn't feel comfortable presenting at the MTV Awards with Keegan [Michael Key] unless this guy was out of it".

A Fox spokesperson told Variety said: 'Several weeks ago, when the studio learned the details, his one scene in the film was removed within 24 hours.

Since the news came out, Munn revealed that Black has not spoken to her, while her co-stars have given her and the entire matter a cold shoulder.

"I haven't heard from Shane", she told The Hollywood Review. In an interview with the LA Times, Munn specifically argued this point, saying that she didn't accept Black's apology as it wasn't given to her privately and that "a real apology has to be done privately". "What I take issue with", Brown added, "& I believe Shane addressed this in his apology, is that we all have the right to know who we're working with! "I was misled by a friend I really wanted to believe", he said in a recent statement. I don't know how to pretend.

Black, who cast longtime friend Striegel in the film as jogger hitting on Munn's character, first defended the move in the original Times report. She has also called out her male co-stars for giving Black a standing ovation at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and not backing her up. His publicist says Sunday that he reached out to Munn privately last week to express his admiration for her.

In 2010 he pleaded guilty after facing allegations that he attempted to lure a 14-year-old girl into a sexual relationship over the internet.

Munn stars in the film alongside Boyd Holbrook, Trevante Rhodes and Thomas Jane. "Right now the reality is that there will be people who wear Time's Up pins and say they support Time's Up, [but] there will be people in Time's Up who aren't really down with the cause".

However things work out for Black and Munn, you can expect some of this tension to still be in the air by the time The Predator hits United States theaters on September 14th.
