Actor Matthew Lawrence accuses Oscar-winning director of sexual harassment, claiming a Marvel role was offered in exchange for stripping.”
Matthew Lawrence of "Boy Meets World" charges Oscar-winning director of sexual harassment and claims he was sacked for refusing to undress for the part.
Matthew Lawrence, who is known for his role in “Boy Meets World,” has accused an Oscar-winning director of sexual harassment. He alleged that he was fired from a role after refusing to strip for it. Lawrence made these claims on Twitter.
Recently, Matthew Lawrence, well-known for his part in the hit comedy “Boy Meets World,” has come up with alarming claims of sexual harassment in Hollywood. The actor claims that after being approached for a part in a future Marvel movie by an Oscar-winning filmmaker, he turned down the offer to strip for the director and was subsequently dismissed from his agency.
Lawrence recently discussed his support for the #MeToo movement in an episode of his podcast “Brotherly Love,” during which he also admitted that he has received offers from male and female filmmakers for leading roles in a number of projects. He stated that he lost his agency when he refused to comply with the requests of a well-known Oscar-winning filmmaker who wanted him to strip off and take Polaroids for him.
Lawrence claims that in exchange for complying with his demands, the director promised him a part in a future Marvel movie. Lawrence stated he was not the first man this had occurred to and that many of his acquaintances had gone through similar circumstances, even if he withheld the name or location of the director.
Lawrence used Terry Crews as an illustration. Crews alleged that a WME representative had molested him at a party in 2016. According to Lawrence, no one backed Crews in the same way that women who make comparable claims are, and he was not believed by the public.
He’s ejected by them. Why? He is a man who epitomises masculinity, and I believe that our society is less prepared to hear about this than it is about women, said Lawrence.
If any action is taken against the director in question, it is yet to be seen, but Lawrence’s accusations serve as a sobering reminder that sexual harassment is a serious problem that affects people of all sexes, races, and socioeconomic statuses.
