Bryan Cranston says redemption might be possible for Hollywood sexual assaulters

Gentle Path at The Meadows, which sits on 35-acres of land just an hour north of Phoenix offers a voluntary 45-day treatment for men that costs over $58,000

Gentle Path at The Meadows, which sits on 35-acres of land just an hour north of Phoenix offers a voluntary 45-day treatment for men that costs over $58,000

The "Breaking Bad" star was asked if there might be a "way back" for men like Harvey Weinstein, who's said to have raped multiple women, and Kevin Spacey, who's facing a handful of allegations of sexual assault and harassment.

'It would take time, it would take a society to forgive them, and it would take tremendous contrition on their part, ' the award-winning actor told the BBC.

Spacey, 58, is now facing multiple allegations of sexual misconduct after Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp accused the Oscar-winner of making inappropriate sexual advances towards him when he was only 14 in an October BuzzFeed article. "His career now I think is over", the actor said. Both men are reportedly seeking treatment for their alleged behavior. If they were to show us that they put the work in and were truly sorry and making amends and not defending their actions but asking for forgiveness then maybe down the road there is room for that. We shouldn't close it off and say "To hell with him, rot, and go away from us for the rest of your life". Let's be bigger than that.

He pinpointed that "sexual behaviour isn't a Hollywood problem, it's a societal problem, but that's what's so great about it, it's being exposed".

Cranston went on to suggest society should evaluate sexual misconduct on a "case-by-case" basis, leaving the door open to the "few who can make it through that gauntlet of trouble and who have reclaimed their life and their dignity and respect for others".

While Cranston believes in second chances, it doesn't sound like he thinks Spacey will be welcomed back in Hollywood with open arms. Sometimes, like in actor Bryan Cranston's case, it might just be better to read the room and move on to the next topic.

As for Spacey, Anthony Rapp accused the American Beauty alumni of attempting to seduce him when Rapp was just a 14-year-old boy.
