Asked about the issue, the 65-year-old Taken star told Irish television’s The Late Late Show on RTE ‘there is a bit of a witch hunt happening’.
‘There’s some people, famous people, being suddenly accused of touching some girl’s knee or something and suddenly they’re being dropped from their programme,’ he added.
When his interviewer mentioned allegations facing Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey, the actor appeared to take the scandals seriously, nodding his head with a serious expression.
