Actor-director Mel Gibson has said the “painful” accusations of sexual harassment and misconduct against disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein will lead to “healthy” change in the film industry.
The 61-year-old actor, who was himself accused of domestic assault by ex-girlfriend c and has a history of drunk driving incidents, made the comments while promoting his latest film “Daddy’s Home 2”, reported The Guardian.
“Things got shaken up a little bit and there is a lot of light being thrown into places where there were shadows and that is kind of healthy.
“It’s painful, but I think pain is a precursor to change,” Gibson said.
“Daddy’s Home 2” is directed by Sean Anders, who also co-wrote it with John Morris. The film also stars Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini, John Cena and John Lithgow.
