This accusation isn't about sex. She said he went in a rage out of nowhere and started screaming at her , then kicked her in the stomach and punched her in the face. Then started screaming at her that he was going to drown her. So she jumped off the boat to get away from him and the Red Cross rescued her from the water. This started a little bit after his wife went down to sleep. There's nothing in the report about him trying to have sex with her. She said she had no idea what set him off.

Always has been. It wasn't until he started losing that people stopped overlooking his foundation of assholeness.

u/Succumbx8 9d ago

To be fair, as an Irishman who followed his progress from the very beginning - it’s not that I knew he was a prick & overlooked it, its more that I didn’t hear any stories about him being a prick until after he had made it. And 99% of those prick stories have taken place since he got mega rich. So it’s possible he was always a prick as you say, but I would suggest that the general public weren’t overlooking it, we only found about it when he really made it big, which is when any prick genes in him really started to shine.

To clarify - I’m talking serious shit, not stuff like trash talking.

No. Tate is undeniably worse but McGregor isn’t ‘just’ insane. That massively downplays what he is.

The allegations of what happened on the boat too. If he literally assaulted a woman, in view if other people- and no one said anything.

Can someone put him out of our misery. He’s a talented piece of shit. I’m so tired of hearing about him being a piece of human garbage.

This headline immediately reminded me of the death of actress Natalie Wood.

EDIT: Natalie Wood in the middle of the night decided to flee the yacht she was on and take her chances in the Pacific Ocean, even though she couldn't swim and was terrified of water all her life. Maybe. Law enforcement was never able to determine how she ended up in the water in the first place. Her body was found with a number of bruises and a facial cut that couldn't be adequately explained. I think they tried to say that her injuries might've been caused by her trying to climb back onto the yacht or perhaps a dinghy that was found beached nearby, but, nobody knows. Her husband (Robert Wagner; Number 2 in "Austin Powers") claimed he went to bed and she wasn't with him so he didn't know anything about it.

EDIT 2: Initially I wrote that Lee Majors was her husband. I was going off of memory and I have no clue why I mixed him up with Robert Wagner. Thank you to u/detmeng for pointing out my error. Everything else should be correct though.

You left out that Christopher Walken was also on the boat with Natalie Wood, which is an interesting fact.

Also the inspiration for Brad Pitt’s character in Once Upon A Time in Hollywood having killed his wife and got away with it.

Wow that wiki on her is wild ride. Was not expecting to find Christopher Walken on the same boat.
