Rami Malek Calls Experience Working With Bryan Singer on 'Bohemian Rhapsody' 'Not Pleasant'

February 02, 2019

Rami Malek says he can't say much about his experience working with Bryan Singer on Bohemian Rhapsody, but he is saying this: "it was not pleasant." 

The singer was fired by the film's studio, Twentieth Century Fox, in December 2017, in the middle of production due to his "unexpected unavailability." Singer's rep told ET at the time that he was focused on a "personal health matter," however, the news also came amid rumors of growing conflict between Singer and Malek, as well as separate reports accusing Singer of sexual misconduct (which he has denied). 

During a moderated discussion with The Hollywood Reporter at the Santa Barbara Film Festival on Friday, Malek addressed his working relationship with Singer. 

"I’ve sat here and talked about how everyone deserves a voice and anyone who wants to talk about what happened with Bryan deserves to have their voice heard," the actor said. "In my situation with Bryan, it was not pleasant, not at all. And that’s about what I can say about it at this point."
