Bryan Cranston Says Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey Deserve a 'Second Chance'

15 Novembre 2017

Bryan Cranston, who is now making his London theatre debut, reckons disgraced movie industry mogul Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey may have another shot at fame.

Asked if there might be a way back "for the Weinsteins and Spaceys of this world", Cranston mused: "It would take time, it would take a society to forgive them and it would take tremendous contrition on their part".

Spacey, 58, is now facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct after Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp accused the Oscar-winner of making inappropriate sexual advances towards him when he was only 14 in an October BuzzFeed article. I think in the face of it, we should let that open.

Weinstein has been accused by more than 80 women of sexual harassment and/or assault.

As a response to the charges, Weinstein and his representatives stated he "unequivocally denies" all of them and believed his relationships were consensual.

Vikings DE Brian Robison nominated for Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award
The award was created in 2014 in honor of Pittsburgh Steelers Founding Owner and Pro Football Hall of Fame member Art Rooney, Sr . The latter quality has been just as inherent in Robison as the instincts that helped him make the play.

If both disgraced men "put in the work", and are "truly sorry" for what they did, "it would be up to us to determine, case by case, whether the person deserves a second chance". Sexual predator behavior is not a Hollywood problem. We shouldn't close it off and say, 'To hell with him, rot and go away for the rest of your life.' Let's be bigger than that.

He added that instead of ostracizing these individuals entirely, society should "leave it open for the few that can make it through that gauntlet of trouble and who have reclaimed their life and their dignity and respect for others".

Last week, in another interview, Cranston said that while Spacey was a "phenomenal actor", he was "not a very good person".

The House of Cards star has faced multiple allegations of sexual harassment after Star Trek: Discovery actor, Anthony Rapp, accused Spacey of coming onto him when he was 14.
