Bond director Cary Fukunaga is being accused of disturbing things on set.
The director of the latest James Bond movie, who promised to make it “#MeToo-friendly,” is being accused of acting inappropriately with young women on the set.
People say that No Time to Die director Cary Fukunaga was rude to young women on the set of the movie.
Sources from the set of the upcoming AppleTV+ miniseries Masters of the Air who didn’t want to be named told Rolling Stone that the director “absolutely, clearly abused his power” with young female actresses and crew members.
People said that his goal is to have romantic relationships.
Rolling Stone says that a woman who dated him after meeting him on set said that when they broke up, she felt like a “heavy weight” had been “lifted.” “Every time I thought about him, I had to throw up,” she said.
Michael Plonsker, the lawyer for the 44-year-old director of “True Detective,” denied the claims to Rolling Stone. “There is nothing salacious about pursuing friendships or consensual romantic relationships with women,” he said.
He also said that “no one ever, not even once, said anything like that” to Fukunaga about the claims.
“He makes the workplace a place where people can be creative, work together, and feel welcome,” Plonsker said in the statement.
The Post has asked Fukunaga’s team and Apple TV+ for their thoughts on the matter.
Rachelle Vinberg, an actress and skateboarder who is 23 years old, recently said on Instagram that Fukunaga groomed her when he asked her to try out for a Samsung ad he was directing when he met her at a skate park.
Rolling Stone says that she was 18 at the time.
In a statement, Plonsker said that Fukunaga “had a very short and mutually agreed-upon romantic relationship with [Vinberg] that has ended” and that the skateboarder “clearly was not happy” with him since the breakup.
“I was scared of him for years,” Vinberg wrote next to an Instagram photo of the two of them. “Man works as a groomer and has been doing this for a long time. Beware, women.”
Later, she called out the director for his pro-choice Instagram Story after a draft of the Supreme Court’s opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked. Roe v. Wade was a landmark decision made in 1973 to protect the right to have an abortion.
“It makes me mad because he doesn’t care about women at all. He only makes them scared. I’ve spoken to many girls. She wrote “F**k you, Cary” on her own Instagram Story, IndieWire says.
When No Time to Die was picked up by Fukunaga, he promised that his version of James Bond would be more in line with the #MeToo movement.
“Is it Thunderball or Goldfinger where Sean Connery’s character, like, basically rapes a woman?” In 2021, Fukunaga asked the Hollywood Reporter about two of the six James Bond movies that Connery was in.
“She says, ‘No, no, no,’ and he says, ‘Yes, yes, yes,'” 44-year-old Fukunaga said.
He told the trade magazine, “That wouldn’t fly today.”
The Guardian said that Fukunaga seemed to be talking about the 1965 movie Thunderball, in which Connery’s Bond kisses a nurse who had turned him down.
