'Green Book' director: 'I was an idiot' for genital-flashing

11 January 2019

Late yesterday, The Cut published a piece alleging that Farrelly - who directed Green Book and took home a Golden Globe for his efforts last weekend - used to flash his penis at unsuspecting strangers "as a joke" on the set of his other films.

In a 1998 Newsweek article about the Farrelly brothers, the interviewer recounts how the brothers "concocted a variety of clever ploys created to get you to look" at Farrelly's penis, characterizing the sexual harassment as outrageous, but largely accepted, boyish pranks.

The article goes on to describe how Bobby would play the straight man in their genital exposure gag, concocting a reason for someone to look at Peter's crotch area, be it a new watchband or "a mysterious blotch on Peter's torso".

Hollywood director Peter Farrelly should be celebrating after his movie Green Book won Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy at the 2019 Golden Globes, but instead he is apologising.

The actress was also interviewed by The Sunday Times back in 1998 and added that after she got the script for "Mary", she asked to talk about that scene and said, "We were in a restaurant and Peter Farrelly showed me his penis". Barker wrote. "Peter smiles at my foolishness. Look! My [penis]!" We do a joke where, it's like, Bob says, 'Pete's been really insane, he went out and spent $500 on a belt buckle.' I go, 'Bob, it's an investment, it's not a big deal.' He says, 'You're stupid! "That's what got her in".

Following The Cut's article, Farrelly issued a statement through his publicists saying the stories were true.

'I'll tell you why, because no matter what I say, I'm going to lose half the audience, and I want everybody to see this. Look! My cock!' We do a joke where, it's like, Bob says, 'Pete's been really insane, he went out and spent $ 500 on a belt buckle.' I go, 'Bob, it's an investment, it's not a big deal.' He says, 'You're stupid! First, an old tweet from writer Nick Vallelonga resurfaced, and folks realized that he climbed onboard with now-President Donald Trump's bogus claim that Muslims celebrated 9/11 in the streets.

In a statement issued through his publicists, Farrelly said he "was an idiot", according to the Hollywood Reporter, and that "I did this decades ago and I thought I was being amusing and the truth is I'm embarrassed and it makes me cringe now".
