"My name is Paige Carnes, former Jane Doe", the now-24-year-old said. With support from others and strength from within, you can overcome the label of victim and reclaim your identity.

"I have no shame for what was done to me", Carnes said.

'I have no shame for what was done to me. "My name is Paige Carnes, former Jane Doe", she concludes.

A Fox spokesman told The Washington Post last week that the studio had not been aware of Striegel's background when he was hired.

Director Shane Black placed the blame on himself, saying he feels responsible for the sex offender being in the movie in the first place.

Initially, Black defended his decision to cast Striegel.

While all of this has been playing out, Munn has been the target of criticism and harassment for choosing to speak up while her co-stars have taken their time to do the same. That's unacceptable. I take full responsibility.

After reporting by the L.A. Times and other outlets, Black backtracked on supporting Striegel. I was the only one that did give a statement. "It's a very lonely feeling to be sitting here by myself when I should be sitting here with the rest of the cast". "I apologize to all of those, past and present, I've let down by having Steve around them without giving them a voice in the decision".

Landslide injures tourists at famed ‘shipwreck’ beach in Greece
Tourists board a boat at the beach Navagio following a rockfall , on the island of Zakynthos, Greece September 13, 2018. The landslide occurred Thursday on the Navagio Beach , or Shipwreck Beach , on the northwestern coast of the island.

Munn revealed Streigel's past was something she was unaware of prior to signing on, and when she learnt the truth she brought it to the attention of the studio 20th Century Fox - who then cut the scene from the movie.

Munn has said she has felt isolated since sharing the information about Striegel.

Much was riding on the film, The Predator, from one of Hollywood biggest studios, as well as producers who had shelled out an event-movie sized budget.

'When something like this happens, it can oftentimes be polarizing, but it's been so incredible to see that there are a lot of sane people out there that are all expressing the same kind of outrage and understanding, and that support, ' she said. However, Munn found that she had to do interviews alone (save for one with eleven-year-old Jacob Tremblay). "It won't just cause ripples", Munn said on The Talk this afternoon about Carnes' stepping forward, "it will be waves".

Several of her co-stars have since released public statements in support of the actress. "I'm very sorry to anybody".

Boyd Holbrook said in an Instagram post Tuesday that he was "proud of Olivia for the way that she handled a hard and alarming situation, and I am grateful that Fox took the information seriously and took action swiftly". And I failed. And I may have, I did cause pain to people in the cast.

"Honestly, there was never a question in my mind whether I should be speaking out and speaking up", she explained Wednesday night at a special screening of the film in Hollywood. She took a stance for me. "To be acknowledged by a stranger, on a public platform about this issue is incredibly empowering", she wrote.

Because of her age at the time of the crime, the young woman in Striegel's case was referred to as Jane Doe.
