‘X-Men’ director Bryan Singer accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy

Oh man, this one’s a doozy. A lawsuit was filed in Hawaii this week against X-Men director Brian Singer, claiming that he had sexually abused a 15-year-old aspiring actor at a party in Hollywood. This event apparently took place in the late 1990s and the victim is now in his 30s, which makes the whole thing kind of bizarre but not automatically untrue.

From the New York Daily News:

Singer had promised Egan a role in one of his movies and had numerous sexual encounters with the boy when he was 15 and 16, Herman told The News. Singer also allegedly brought Egan to Hawaii for multiple extended trips when he was 17.

The suit does not specifically demand a monetary figure, but states that the damages suffered warrant in excess of $75,000. In response, Marty Singer, a lawyer for the director, said “it is obvious that this case was filed in an attempt to get publicity,” given that the newest installment of the “X-Men” franchise, “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” hits theaters May 23.

“The claims made against Bryan Singer are completely without merit,” the statement added. “We are very confident that Bryan will be vindicated in this absurd and defamatory lawsuit.”

Singer gave “an alcoholic beverage . . . and mentioned finding a role for him in an upcoming movie that he was directing,” the suit says. “Defendant Singer told plaintiff how ‘this group’ controls Hollywood.”

“Singer masturbated plaintiff and then performed oral sex upon him. Defendant Singer solicited plaintiff to perform oral sex upon him, which plaintiff resisted,” the suit says.

“Singer flagrantly disregarded plaintiff’s unwillingness to submit, and forced plaintiff’s head underwater to make plaintiff perform oral sex upon him. When plaintiff pulled his head out of the water in order to breathe, defendant Singer demanded that he continue which plaintiff refused,” the suit went on. “Defendant Singer then forced plaintiff to continue performing oral sex upon him outside of the pool, and subsequently forcibly sodomized plaintiff.”

Huh. I do agree that this definitely seems like a publicity attempt, but so many sexual assault victims are brushed off and it shouldn’t matter how long after the fact this happened that he comes forward, if it’s true – there is no statute of limitations on being abused. However, I really do hope the truth comes out on this – how awful!

Anna Paquin Got Cut From The X-Men Movie

Anna Paquin shot a scene as the character Rogue for the upcoming X-Men movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, (lol wtf is that title) — but unfortunately, no one’s going to see it. At least, not in theaters. Director Bryan Singer hopes it will show up on DVD. Here’s why her scene — her one and only scene — got cut. As Singer told Entertainment Weekly,

Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous. It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.

She [Paquin] did a fantastic job. She was awesome in the sequence. She’s a brilliant actress. I would work with her in a heartbeat.

She completely understood [about the cut]. It’s very disappointing, but she’s very professional and she knows that stuff happens, particularly with material you shoot early on in production. Films evolve.

Bummer for her. And for fans? Will you guys miss her? I guess one bright side is she won’t have to promote the film and can spend more time with her twin babies.

Here are some supercute pics of her and husband Stephen Moyer (BIEEEELL) from earlier this month. They made my heart melt. Enjoy.
