Brett Ratner now claims he didn’t “bang” Olivia Munn: “She’s actually talented”

wenn5744901

Last week, we talked about this sketchy Brett Ratner-Olivia Munn scandal – go here for Friday’s story. Here are the basics: Olivia Munn’s recent book included the following passage about a director that she left unnamed:

“Wait,” he begged.

Slowly, like in a bad horror movie, I turned around once more. And I remember first noticing him wearing an Oxford shirt and holding a fistful of cocktail sauce-smothered shrimp. He popped one down his throat and then another, the red sauce collecting like so much baby’s blood at the corner of his smirking mouth before dribbling down his front and settling as glistening stains on his shirt.

[…] This A-List schmuck then has the nerve to say: “You have such an interesting look– what ethnicity are you?”

And this is where things crossed over from merely disturbing to downright horrific–that was the exact moment I noticed what was either a tiny gnarled doggie toy or this adult man’s penis being stroked by his own stubby hand.

He was masturbating. Right there. With shrimp in one hand. And me standing in front of him. Masturbating. Mastur-bating. I’m not even kidding.

And the dude was going for it, too, furiously pulling at the tragic stub. Before I could even begin to make sense of the whole deal, he was moaning, moaning and then–fire hose. On steroids. The Mt. Saint Helens of man-juice.

When Brett Ratner was asked about this passage last Thursday, as he promoted Tower Heist, he told this convoluted story (that had no specific denial of his lack of endowment):

“I used to date Olivia Munn … when she was Lisa. That was the problem. She wasn’t Asian back then. She was hanging out on my set of After the Sunset, I banged her a few times … but I forgot her. Because she changed her name … I didn’t know it was the same person. So when she came and auditioned for me for a TV show, I forgot her, she got pissed off and she made up all these stories about me eating shrimp and masturbating in my trailer. And my shortcomings. She talked about my shortcomings. I get it. She’s bitter.”

So everybody pretty much thought that Brett sucked, but many of us think Olivia sucks too, so they kind of deserve each other. Still, Brett definitely came off worse… right? I don’t know, it was still pretty even, in my opinion. Anyway, Brett is taking back his comments! He went on Howard Stern yesterday, and he played a game of takesies-backsies with the whole Olivia Munn thing:

The last few days have not been the best for director Brett Ratner. Today, while doing a phone interview on The Howard Stern Show, the Tower Heist helmer said he lied about having sex with actress Olivia Munn when he appeared on G4′s Attack of the Show last week.

Ratner does call Munn “a friend,” and says the geek cult icon told him he is not the unnamed director she’s refers to in her book as having “undersized manhood.” Ratner continued: “She’s actually talented. The problem is I made her look like she’s a whore.”

Ratner also apologized today for using a gay slur during a Q&A after a Friday-night screening of his new action-comedy Tower Heist. According to various reports, when asked by a moderator about whether he rehearsed with his cast before shooting a scene, Ratner dismissively said, “Rehearsal is for fags.” Facing criticism for the remark, Ratner released a statement, saying, “I apologize for any offense my remarks caused. It was a dumb way of expressing myself. Everyone who knows me knows that I don’t have a prejudiced bone in my body. But as a storyteller I should have been much more thoughtful about the power of language and my choice of words.”

In response to Ratner’s remarks, GLAAD issued a statement saying, “This apology is a good start, but we’re working with Ratner’s people for more action, to clearly send a message to Hollywood that the anti-gay slurs used by bullies and bigots have no place in the world of entertainment, or anywhere else.”

The incidents aren’t just throwing a wrench in the publicity campaign for Tower Heist. Ratner has been hired to produce this year’s Academy Awards telecast along with veteran TV producer Don Mischer, and, since the Oscars are supposed to represent the film industry’s highest values and achievements (and since the star who’s been hired to host the show, Eddie Murphy, has his own history of drawing fire for using homophobic slurs), his remarks are sure to draw extra scrutiny.

[From Entertainment Weekly]

So, he’s now claiming they never boned, with or without cocktail sauce, and that she’s never even seen his dong. And he’s also apologizing for saying rehearsing is for homosexuals. I can’t even. Okay, I’m calling it. Brett Ratner sucks way worse than Olivia Munn. That hurt to admit.

    This thing sounds like Olivia is hooking up with someone really powerful behind the scenes and he got Brett to retract what he said about her. I wonder who her “champion” was? Because that’s the only thing that makes sense. She’s not powerful enough on her own to get someone like Brett to take what he said back; if she was he wouldn’t have said again disparaging in the first place. Plus if they were actually friends wouldn’t he have specified after saying what he said that he was only joking about the things he said about her and they were friends during the G4 show. Why would anyone want to make their friend look like a “whore”? Lastly, as a friend wouldn’t he have known that she wasn’t talking about him in the book. Seems shady to me.

  2. brin says:

    What is it with these d bags and their moronic public gaffes. They sound ridiculous in the first place and look worse with their half-assed apologies.

  3. Eve says:

    he played a game of takesies-backsies…

    LOL!

    P.S.: She wrote “mastur-bating” to give emphasis to it, I suppose. Shouldn’t it have been “mas-tur-ba-ting” then?

  4. lizzief says:

    Heard him on Howard on Sirius yesterday. He claimed that a doctor told him that he had the highest sperm count and motility that the doctor had ever measured, that he has all potential lays tested by a doctor beforehand for potential disease, and that noone in the world is better at oral sex than him. I kid you not.

  5. becky says:

    Dude this chick has broken the golden rule twicce, blabbing about her hook up w justin tim. for the tabs and now this. Obviously stars bang each other on the downlow, but you dont talk about it to civilians, much less the media! she totally shot herself in the foot.

  6. ShanKat says:

    People who know say she’s Harvey Weinstein’s special girl.

    Brett sure laid down fast for uncle Harv. I love how he had to apologize for the rehearsal-is-for-fags comment…Brett Ratner says “fag” a LOT. If people heard the way powerful industry males really talk to each other, they’d never ever go to the movies. Or stop vomiting.

  7. Jayna says:

    What idiocy by both, but he is digging his hole deeper.

  8. danny says:

    ShanKat: they can be as homphobic, misogynistic or racist as they want in Hollyweird but as soon as they spew antisemitism they are done.
    Basically if you are gay, a woman or non white you are servant.

  9. carrie says:

    who cares?
    OT: he will produce the next Oscar ceremony,i feel that without rehearsal it will be worse than this year

  10. tapioca says:

    @ShanKat: Unfortunately, for the type of movies Brett Ratner makes, the audience is mainly made up of guys who talk exactly like that – he’s essentially Michael Bay with a smaller blowing-sh*t-up budget.

    Still, I like him more than Olivia Munn, who is now the most high-profile argument that women can’t be sexy AND funny after her anti-hilarious turn on The Daily Show.

  11. mia girl says:

    This guy is a real prince.

  12. becky says:

    shankat: whaaaaaat? shes banging harvey? when did u hear that? tell me more

  13. becky says:

    if she shows up in marchesa for award season we’ll know its true – and she really seems like the type to have herself on google alert

  14. dorothy says:

    I don’t even know who this guy is but I bet he has women falling all over him with his wit and charm…..NOT!

  15. Elizabeth S. says:

    Ugh. It’s all so sleazy.

    And I still hate them both. I wish they’d stop yapping and attention ho-ing, and just do something good.

  16. bea says:

    I agree with the first commenter “jinni” that was a command performance. He doesn’t strike me as the kind of guy who would apologize unless forced.

    But if you have to eff guys like Ratner and Weinstein to become a “star” maybe that’s not such a great goal.

  17. normades says:

    This girl is so gross. She’s the one that leaked all the Timberlake stories in an attempt to gain puplicity and maybe become his steady. Seriously, she is so useless…all she can do to get ahead is sleep around and hit all the red carpets she can.

    Make her go away….

  18. podzol says:

    While I totally think Munn is useless and uninteresting, people who think that she’s worse than Ratner… … REALLY do not know enough about this sleazebag. He’s scum, a misogynistic no-talent hack who coasts on success because he’s got relationships with studio execs who greenlight his shit. Seriously, Munn sucks but this guy is in a category of his own. Kaiser, you should try to read up more dirt on him, you’ll have an entertaining afternoon, promise.

  19. gloaming says:

    The more I read about BR the sleazier it get’s.

    He keeps an online blog chronicling his conquests.

    http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2011/11/blind-item-revealed.html

    Fat sweaty douchebag pig.

  20. tapioca says:

    @podzol: If you have countless women willing to stick their legs in the air on the casting couch just because you’re a movie director you’re hardly going to respect the female gender very much. Men can’t treat women like disposable cum-dumpsters unless we allow them to!

  21. podzol says:

    @tapioca: I see what you mean, but that’s a whole other issue, don’t you find? I mean, I hardly have any respect for anyone who’d be willing to sleep with Ratner (either bc they are attracted to him or in the hopes of having a movie part), but it’s not because a number of questionable women allow it that it excuses in any way the -treating women like disposable cum-dumpster-behaviour. If we’re going to be relentless with shitbags like Michael Lohan, I don’t see how it should be any different with Brett Ratner! And this is the guy who produces next year’s Oscars. Way to go, AMPAS.

  22. kieslwoski says:

    I still cannot believe that this DOUCHEBAG is producing the Oscars. I just can’t. This guy and Michael lBay are the biggest hacks in Hollywood. I still cannot bellieve that people give him tons of cash to make his hoorible movies.

  23. the original bellaluna says:

    Wow. There is just so much “GROSS” involved here I don’t know where to start.

    1) IF he did that (and he probably did) he’s nasty;

    2) Why write about it in her book? Don’t complain about “casting couch behaviour” whilst lying on said couch, dear. It’s embarrassing.

    He and Bay are just so much misogynistic “boys will be boys club” cretins.

  24. T.C. says:

    I believed his first story about hooking up with her when she was Lisa and him forgetting her the next time they met. That totally sounds like the RATner. This new story about him being friends with Munn and never having sex with her? Totally bull. It’s damage control. The Acadmey people called him and threatened to fire him if he didn’t take back what he said about banging some girl and forgetting her (bad P.R. and risks losing female audience members) they also made him apologize for his homophobic comments. I hate this guy but I don’t like Munn for writing that sleazy book.

  25. GirlyGirl says:

    Remember when Hollywood made “Movie Stars”?

    Now it’s just a scuzzbot d-list machine.

  26. what?! says:

    Jinni , Danny and GirlyGirl-what you all said x1000!

  27. UKHels says:

    *sound of furious backpedalling*

  28. Embee says:

    @tapioca I hardly think that the behavior of women in Hollywood triggered Ratner’s perspective on the opposite sex in general. And blaming women for participating in a dynamic that was established for them by the patriarchy is as cruel as it is illogical.

    Her accoutn of the shrimp scene is chilling. I am so glad I have given up watching movies.

  29. e.non says:

    totally small peen syndrome.

  30. ZenB!tch says:

    *Brett Ratner sucks way worse than Olivia Munn. That hurt to admit.*

    @Kaiser – I keep telling my friends Brett Ratner is the worst thing in this town. He makes Michael Bay look almost human.

    *shudder*Ican’tstandthatman*shudder*

  31. Julia says:

    LATEST NEWS : Brett Ratner out as Oscar producer as a consequence of his latest diahrrea of the mouth !

  32. ZenB!tch says:

    Brett Ratner so badly wants to be A-List that he is willing to cop to a small penis and liking to jack off with shrimp. My guess is the footlicker from earlier in the summer.

  33. Rush Hour offended me at age 11, let alone now says:

    You take that back! nothing is worse than Munn’s camera mugging, no talent ass!
    okay, that’s not true. They’re both awful in their own unique ways

  34. BRENT says:
