Bryan Cranston wants a second chance for Weinstein and Spacey
“Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston, best known for portraying Walter White on the AMC crime drama series, said that there is still a chance for producer Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey, the Hollywood big shots accused of sexual harassment, to make a comeback. The American actor, producer, director and screenwriter told BBC: “It would take time, it would take a society to forgive them, and it would take tremendous contrition on their part. And a knowingness that they have a deeply rooted psychological and emotional problems and it takes years to mend that.” Cranston, who previously told BBC Newsbeat that despite being a “phenomenal actor,” Spacey is “not a very good person,” also added that Spacey is on the edge of a shattered career. In an October BuzzFeed article, “Star Trek: Discovery” actor Anthony Rapp accused the lauded actor of making inappropriate sexual advances towards him when he was only 14. Rapp's allegation was followed by a series of accusations of sexual misconduct against the 58-year-old Spacey. Spacey has publicly come out as a gay following the incident. He tweeted a statement in response to the allegation, saying he did not remember Rapp’s alleged incident. However, the Oscar-winner apologised for “what would have been deeply inappropriate drunken behaviour.” On the other hand, Harvey Weinstein, the big shot Hollywood producer, has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 50 women since The New York Times and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed articles earlier this month. Taking a more cocky stance, Weinstein denied all of the allegations made against him. A spokesperson for the producer previously told PEOPLE Magazine in a statement that “any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr Weinstein. Mr Weinstein has further confirmed that there were never any acts of retaliation against any women for refusing his advances.” Cranston's lenient statement comes with a condition. The actor said there is still a chance for them to make a comeback only if they “were to show us that they put the work in and were truly sorry and making amends and not defending their actions but asking for forgiveness then maybe down the road there is room for that.” He added, “Then it would be up to us to determine, case by case, whether or not this person deserves a second chance.” Cranston also believes that it would be wrong to not give them a chance of atonement. “We shouldn’t close it off and say, ‘To hell with him, rot, and go away from us for the rest of your life.’ Let’s not do that. Let’s be bigger than that. Let’s leave it open for the few who can make it through that gauntlet of trouble and who have reclaimed their life and their dignity and their respect for others. Maybe it’s possible.”
