Shane Black gets emotional apologizing to Olivia Munn over 'Predator' controversy

And it was a real wonderful opportunity for me to take a pause and say, 'What must it be like for my female castmates who had to share a scene with a confirmed sex offender, a man who tried to hook up with this 14-year-old cousin or family member?' It's skeevy...

'When something like this happens, it can oftentimes be polarizing, but it's been so unbelievable to see that there are a lot of sane people out there that are all expressing the same kind of outrage and understanding, and that support, ' she said. "I'm very sorry to anybody". "She took a stance for me", Carnes said.

"I was not able to speak for myself when I was 14", Paige Carnes, now 24 years old, wrote in a statement. To be acknowledged by a stranger, on a public platform about this issue is incredibly empowering.

My goal in making this statement is to reclaim my identity.

Black appeared torn up as he apologized for his hiring error, and, though he did not name Munn, made a point of acknowledging people in his cast had been hurt as a result. In a statement, Carnes said she wanted to come forward publicly to reclaim her identity. It should make you uncomfortable.

Speaking at the premiere of The Predator in Los Angeles on Wednesday, she added that her co-stars - whom she had previously admitted she felt isolated from after taking a stand - had "expressed their regret for how it went down". The consequences of this abuse are profound and permanent for some.

Olivia Munn has admitted she has been "so blown away" by the support she has received after going public with her fight to have a scene with a registered sex offender cut from her latest film, The Predator. "You lose trust in everyone around you, and mainly yourself", Carnes continued. The Washington Post generally does not identify victims of sexual crimes, but Carnes said, in a statement provided to the L.A. Times, that she is speaking out to "reclaim" her identity. What's important to note here is that no matter how shocking and uncomfortable this news was for the entire production staff, Munn immediately emphasized that "It's been most tough on the Jane Doe that was in the story because the victim is the victim".

Support can come in many forms.

Much was riding on the film, The Predator, from one of Hollywood biggest studios, as well as producers who had shelled out an event-movie sized budget.

Carnes thanked her parents for their support through the journey, saying, "I am extremely fortunate to have a Father and Mother that love me unconditionally. My Father has supported me in my healing and growth in ways I can not thank him enough for", Carnes says.

I hope anyone who has suffered like I have regains their voice and their humanity. "You know, I'm not just a kid who can say, 'You know, we're making movies in college".
