Brett Ratner is among the many people in Hollywood currently being accused of sexual harassment. Ratner, who is a director, was called out for sexual misconduct by six women, including actress Olivia Munn.
Munn, in a statement released to the Los Angeles Times, said that Ratner allegedly masturbated in front of her on the set of After the Sunset in 2004. Ratner is also said to have allegedly forced himself on Canadian actor Natasha Henstridge.
Obviously Ratner denied this ever happened, but now, Gal Gadot is taking things a step further.
Ratner financed Wonder Woman with Warner Bros. Wonder Woman’s star, Gal Gadot, is now threatening to leave the franchise unless Warner Bros. severs ties with Ratner.
A source told Page Six,
“Gadot is saying she won’t sign for the sequel unless Warner Bros. buys Brett out [of his financing deal] and gets rid of him. She’s tough and stands by her principles. She also knows the best way to hit people like Brett Ratner is in the wallet. She also knows that Warner Bros. has to side with her on this issue as it develops. They can’t have a movie rooted in women’s empowerment being part-financed by a man accused of sexual misconduct against women.”
A Warner Bros. rep said these reports are “False,” but we all know what that really means.
