Wonder Woman star, Israeli actress Gal Gadot, said she will not agree to appear on the second Wonder Woman movie unless director Brett Ratner who accused sex offender is removed from the production, The New York Post’s Page Six reports.
Six women, including actresses Olivia Munn and Natasha Henstridge have accused Brett Ratner of sexual harassment and assault.
In a Facebook post, actress Ellen Page, accused him of publicly outing her as lesbian during the production of the film “X-Men the Last Stand.”
“…I was a young adult who had not yet come out to myself. I knew I was gay, but did not know, so to speak. I felt violated when this happened. I looked down at my feet, didn’t say a word and watched as no one else did either. This man, who had cast me in the film, started our months of filming at a work event with this horrific, unchallenged plea. He “outed” me with no regard for my well-being, an act we all recognize as homophobic. I proceeded to watch him on set say degrading things to women. I remember a woman walking by the monitor as he made a comment about her “flappy pussy”…she wrote.
Fellow X-men actress Anna Paquin, used Twitter to confirm that she was there at the time of event.
Ratner’s company Rat Pac-Dune Entertainment was one of the financiers of the first Wonder Woman movie, which was a global success, earning $400 million. The company will also be involved in the making of the second Wonder Woman movie.
Gadot ensuring the moral integrity of the character she portrays, demanding that Warner Brothers break the ties with Ratner’s company. Rat Pac-Dune Entertainment was one of the inventors in the first Wonder Woman movie.
