In a candid interview, actor Noah Galvin accused Hollywood director Brian Singer of touching ‘little boys’ and about the possibility of a ‘industry network’ of gay men.
In an interview with New York Magazine’s entertainment vertical, Vulture, the 22-year-old star of ABC sitcom The Real O’Neals spoke about being a gay actor in Hollywood.
The story, headlined “Noah Galvin Has Nothing to Hide,” turned out to be very much untrue.
At one point during the interview the discussion turned to Bryan Singer, the X-Men director who has long been rumoured to be a major player in Hollywood’s clandestine gay scene.
Back in 2014, Singer was sued by Michael Egan when Egan was 17 of raping him. Despite the suit being eventually dropped, question marks have remained about Singer’s relationships with younger men.
Speaking about Singer, Galvin said:
Yeah. Bryan Singer likes to invite little boys over to his pool and diddle them in the f—ing dark of night. [Laughs.] I want nothing to do with that. I think there are enough boys in L.A. that are questionably homosexual who are willing to do things with the right person who can get them in the door. In New York there is a healthy gay community, and that doesn’t exist in L.A.
After this story’s publication, New York Magazine removed the quote in question from their story, citing it as a ‘contentious issue’:
Editor’s note: This article originally contained a reference to Bryan Singer. In an interview format, we generally let the subject speak his mind. But this is a contentious issue, and after consideration, we decided to delete the reference. Noah Galvin has issued a statement.
Late last night, Galvin tweeted an apology to Singer and retracted his statement about the director.
Adding there was ‘no basis’ for his accusations:
Galvin’s comments come after actor Elijah Wood reportedly claimed in an interview with the Sunday Times that there is a child sex scandal going on in Hollywood, similar to that of the Jimmy Savile paedophilia revelations which emerged in 2012.
However, he later clarified his comments, saying, “I have no firsthand experience or observation of the topic, so I cannot speak with any authority beyond articles I have read and films I have seen.”
