After eight days, Bryan Singer finally released a statement about the sexual assault lawsuit that was filed, and for once the statement didn't come from his attorney.
“The allegations against me are outrageous, vicious and completely false. I do not want these fictitious claims to divert ANY attention from ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ This fantastic film is a labor of love and one of the greatest experiences of my career. So, out of respect to all of the extraordinary contributions from the incredibly talented actors and crew involved, I’ve decided not to participate in the upcoming media events for the film. However, I promise when this situation is over, the facts will show this to be the sick twisted shake down it is. I want to thank fans, friends and family for all their amazing and overwhelming support.”
I don't think anyone really expected him to do press for the film because no one would actually ask a question about it and would just ask questions about the lawsuit. As it is, every single person who does do press is going to be asked about it and every story about the movie is going to mention the lawsuit. I'm not sure though that any amount of questioning about his behavior or discussion about the lawsuit is going to keep the movie from being a box office hit. Maybe if the lawsuit had reached its conclusion, things would be different. I did notice that his attorney has backed off the countersuit discussion and is now saying they will file a malicious prosecution claim after they win.
Meanwhile, Gawker has a great article on their site about more actors who attended Bryan Singer parties and implies, that not only is Taylor Lautner gay, but that he had sex with men to get cast in roles. Kevin Spacey was also mentioned as a guy who was at many of the parties with Singer and young men.
