Mr Spacey is being entirely erased from his new film because of allegations, dating from the 1980s to last year.

Bryan claims he has never personally seen abuse in Hollywood, but "you know it has gone on".

"There's a disorder among all those people who use their power, their place or their status in any industry to overpower someone and force someone to do something that they do not want to do," he says of the many Hollywood allegations that have emerged.

"It's a form of bullying. It's a form of control. It's almost always [done to] young vulnerable men and women who are starting their career.

"That sort of experience goes unchecked until something like this happens."
