NO TIME TO DIE Director Cary Joji Fukunaga Hit By Series Of Inappropriate Sexual Advances Accusations
Cary Joji Fukunaga made a name for himself working on True Detective before entering the blockbuster realm with No Time to Die, but the filmmaker has now found himself coming under fire. Check it out...
No Time to Die and True Detective director Cary Joji Fukunaga has been hit with a series of accusations claiming he made inappropriate sexual advances to at least three young female actors. The allegations were made when the filmmaker shared his thoughts on the prospect of the U.S. Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade; describing it as " a war against women's rights." Rachelle Vinberg (Betty) quickly responded to say, "he literally doesn’t care about women. He only traumatizes them."
This was followed by a series of Instagram posts which saw Vinberg allege that Fukunaga took advantage of their two-decade age difference, claiming he pressured her into a relationship right after she turned 18. This was followed by similar comments from twin actresses Hannah and Cailin Loesch (Maniac), who claim that he tried to pressure them into having a threesome in his penthouse.
Cailin says she was "terrified" after he pulled her on top of him, and when they refused his advances, the sisters claim the filmmaker suggested they "drop acid" and do molly at his house upstate that weekend. Fukunaga reportedly invited the two women to his penthouse to view an early cut of No Time to Die, with the insinuation being that he used the movie as an excuse to seduce them.
Last year, Fukunaga was accused of firing actress Raeden Greer while shooting the first season of HBO's True Detective for refusing to appear topless on camera, a claim he has previously denied.
The director has yet to respond to these allegations, but they don't paint a flattering picture. No laws were broken as far as we're aware, but accusations like these are still serious and could be incredibly damaging to his career. Find more details on what happened by heading to The Wrap.
