Actor Matthew Lawrence claimed that he was fired from his agency after he refused to strip for an Oscar-winning director who was reportedly offering him a role in an upcoming Marvel film.
Lawrence, 43, made the revelation Saturday on his podcast “Brotherly Love” which he hosts with his two other siblings, Andy and Joey Lawrence.
The “Boy Meets World” star opened up the episode by expressing his support for the “#MeToo” movement saying it was a “good thing” while claiming that he had been propositioned by directors — both men and women — several times for a major role in various films.
“There have been many times in my life where I’ve been propositioned to get a huge role,” said Lawrence. “I’ve lost my agency because I went to the hotel room, which I can’t believe they would send me to, of a very prominent Oscar award-winning director who showed up in his robe, asked me to take my clothes off and said he needed to take Polaroids of me.”
“And then if I did X, Y and Z, I would be the next Marvel character. I didn’t do that, and my agency fired me because I left this director’s room,” continued Lawrence.
The Post reached out to Lawrence for comment.
Lawrence, who did not give a specific name or location regarding the incident, claimed that he is not the only man this happened too.
“A lot of other friends have gone through it. Both men and women,” continued the 43-year-old.
The “Mrs. Doubtfire” star also claimed there is a double standard in Hollywood and that men who are sexually harassed do not receive the same level of support as women do.
As an example, the 43-year-old recalled the 2016 incident where Terry Crews claimed he was groped by WME agent Adam Venit at a party and people didn’t believe him.
“Terry Crews comes out and says it; people are laughing at him. People don’t support him,” said Lawrence. “They kick him out. Why? Because he’s a man that represents masculinity, and I think our society is less ready to hear that situation going on with men than they are with women.”
Crews, 54, received an apology from Venit two years later in 2018 and shared it on Twitter.
