OHMYGOSSIP — Bryan Cranston believes there is room for forgiveness for Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, in wake of the sexual harassment allegations against them.
The 65-year-old disgraced producer is currently facing allegations of sexual harassment from a number of women who claim the incidents took place over the past 30 years, and since those claims have come to light, the former ‘House of Cards’ star has also had harassment claims made against him by several males.
Since news their respective scandals broke, Harvey has been fired from his position as co-chairman of The Weinstein Company and Kevin has been sacked from Netflix hit ‘House of Cards’, but fellow actor Bryan Cranston has now claimed they could be offered a second chance in the future.
The ‘Breaking Bad’ star added to the BBC: “It would take time, it would take a society to forgive them, and it would take tremendous contrition on their part. And a knowingness that they have a deeply rooted psychological and emotional problem and it takes years to mend that.”
His comments come after he previously suggested that 58-year-old Kevin – who has had claims made against him by men including Richard Dreyfuss’ son Harry and ‘Star Trek: Discovery’s Anthony Rapp – would never work again as a result of the allegations.
Bryan, 62, said: “He’s a phenomenal actor but he’s not a very good person. His career now I think is over.”
Although Bryan has had a career spanning over four decades, he is adamant he has never witnessed any inappropriate sexual behaviour, but thinks the claims that have engulfed Hollywood are “beyond disgusting”.
He said: “There’s a disorder among all those people who use their power, their place or their status in any industry to overpower someone and force someone to do something that they don’t want to do.
“It’s beyond disgusting. It’s almost animalistic. It’s a form of bullying. It’s a form of control. It’s almost always done to young vulnerable men and women who are starting their career. That sort of experience goes unchecked until something like this happens. The pillars of what was are falling. Everything is being exposed. Women and men should not have to tolerate misbehaviour just because of their youth and inexperience.
“The silver lining is we’re not accepting behaviour like that just because it’s the way it’s always been.”
