I was on Twitter last night & I saw this article from #GQmagazine @gq
which immediately caught my eye because I've wondered why he really vanished for a while. Brendan was/is one of my very favorite people because he was this beautiful, yet dorky man willing to do anything in a film for a laugh or a stunt, but did it with such passion & innocent wonder in every adventure. When I first saw "The Mummy", he was one of the most beautiful men I'd ever seen. I've missed him, on my TV screen. So many of his films made a huge impact on me & my love of comedy & adventure stories when I was younger. He's 50 now & still beautiful. He took time away from his career for so many reasons & I love how beautifully honest & emotional he is in this article. Please go to the GQ website or twitter to read the article if Brendan meant anything to you. Because some men have been taken advantage of too. In Hollywood. His #MeToo
story hurts my soul because he felt like he was losing his mind, like he did something wrong, losing confidence, career, self worth, etc. Brendan was sexually assaulted by the former Hollywood Foreign Press Association president #PhilipBerk
in a crowded room, with a single unexpected touch in a very vulnerable place, which Brendan was "NOT ASKING FOR IT". Now this sick fuck is still around in the business while Brendan's career sort of went downhill. But seeing all of these brave stories & coming together in this #TimesUp
movement from these women & men made Brendan feel like he had to say something. I'm so proud & him for speaking out & for being the kind, generous, beautiful man I always hoped he would be. He's acting again & adores his 3 sons, a rescued horse & loves peace & quiet at his upper New York home. I believe him. Please read the article.
