Actor Just “Pretending” To Be a Creep

OAKLAND, CA – Kevin Handson, 57, was warned by his director to stop making his co-stars uncomfortable during rehearsals for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, following increasingly disturbing complaints of sexual harassment. “I’m an actor,” said Handson, “I’m just playing around. I’m obviously not really an aggressively horny male. But my character definitely is.” Handson blames his character’s alcoholism for sending drunk text messages to his assistant stage manager, a sophomore in high school. His character also decided that wearing pants in the shared dressing rooms backstage was too constricting. “If people don’t understand the difference between me as a person and me as a performer, I can see why they might think I’m a predator. That’s the risk a well-trained actor takes. Ask anyone in Hollywood.”
