Actor and director Mel Gibson commented on the eruption in Hollywood sex scandal, reports The Guardian.

According to the winner of the Oscar, places where there were “shadows” have become much lighter, and this process can be called healthy.

“It’s painful, but I think that pain is a harbinger of changes,” the artist said.

Gibson himself was in the past in the center of scandalous incidents connected, in particular, with the manifestation of racism and misogyny.

Previously, the media reported that the “Oscar” showed that Hollywood partially forgave Gibson.

It was also reported that actress Natalie Portman said that she faced discrimination and harassment on the filming of virtually all of her films.
