Jessica Chastain calls attention to Bryan Singer’s sexual assault accusations

  Jessica Chastain calls attention to Bryan Singer’s sexual assault accusations Molly’s Game actress Jessica Chastain is known for being outspoken in Hollywood. Not only has she lent her voice to the fight for women’s equal pay in the industry, but she also recently supported victims of sexual abuse at the hands of some of Hollywood’s biggest names. In an interview with Screen Rant, Chastain spoke about what she feels needs to be done about the issue of abuse in Hollywood: “My current thoughts and feelings are I want to do whatever I can to support victims and to know that I believe them and that there’s a community of artist that are committed to creating safe work environments. And I think that the industry has not been running the way it should be running.” She continued, “I think it goes beyond gender. It goes to all facets of the industry. We need to be more inclusive…So, the thing I am excited about is I do believe that there’s a generation of [artists] who are done with the old ways of Hollywood… and is more interested in creating an industry that is safe and inclusive.” In support of victims, Chastain is calling out those with a reputation for being abusers, such as X-Men franchise director Bryan Singer. Chastain drew attention to Singer’s sordid past of sexual assault allegations via a tweet from her Twitter account of an article written from the website Daily Wire about the accusations against Singer.
