Michelle Williams is breaking her silence about former co-star Kevin Spacey, and about badual harbadment in Hollywood.
Earlier this month, actor House of Cards was charged with badual misconduct by more than a dozen people. Following the scandal, the director Ridley Scott decided to replace Spacey in the next drama All the Money in the World choosing Christopher Plummer to re-record the scenes of Spacey, portraying the billionaire J. Paul Getty.
Williams, who also stars in the possible Oscar contender film, spoke Entertainment Weekly about the departure of Spacey in the new issue of the magazine.
"This does nothing to alleviate the suffering of people who were also personally affected by Kevin Spacey, but it is our small act of trying to correct the error," said the 37-year-old actress, who was stunned by the accusations against Spacey, 58. "And it sends a message to predators: you can not get away with it anymore." Something will be done . "

"I am very proud to be a part of this, we are all here for Ridley," Williams added. "When this idea came up, I immediately started to feel better." The actress, who worked on acclaimed films such as Blue Valentine and My Week with Marilyn for Harvey Weinstein & # 39; s Weinstein Company, had not previously addressed the badual harbadment scandals in Hollywood.
In October, Star Trek actor Anthony Rapp alleged that Spacey made an unwanted badual breakthrough towards him in 1986, when he was only 14 years old. The same day, Spacey issued a statement in which he apologized to Rapp (although he said he did not remember the incident) and went publicly as gay. In the following weeks, several more men came forward to accuse Spacey of harbadment or badual badault. A representative of Spacey said since then that the actor seeks "evaluation and treatment."
