We all know that Bret Easton Ellis would come to the defense of James Deen and we weren't even waiting for this interview, but here it is. Basically, Ellis wants us all to know that he's friends with James Deen and everyone should be jealous.
Bret probably bought this picture from Getty and framed it
Ellis says the allegations of rape (10 women have come forward so far) is a witchhunt and thinks it's a joke that women are just now coming forward. He also claims that Stoya is jealous and unstable who he allegedly says threatened Deen with rape accusations before.The two apparently started tweeting each other before eventually meeting at some club.
Bret Easton Ellis hasn't even talked to James Deen (only texts) since the allegations, but believes they are the bestest of friends. He even brags about knowing Deen before Stoya.Bret Easton Ellis wrote the screenplay for The Canyons and
persuaded begged director Paul Schrader into casting James Deen. The character Deen poorly portrayed in The Canyons was a sociopath that loves being violent against women. Hmm.
Bret seeks to shame those who support Stoya, a victim of rape, by saying certain evidence is, "going to prove everyone who is #solidaritywithstoya
to be ashamed of themselves."
He's never even met Joanna Angel but says her relationship with James was as problematic as his relationship with Stoya.READ THE ENTIRE INTERVIEW at THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
