Bohemian Rhapsody actor Rami Malek has said working with director Bryan Singer before Singer was fired from the film was “not pleasant”.
The actor, nominated for an Oscar for his Freddie Mercury role on the Queen biopic, said on Friday at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival: “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.”
The film earned five Academy Award nominations, including Malek’s best actor nod.
Asked at the film festival about sexual misconduct claims against Singer, which were not cited as the reason for Singer’s firing, Malek said his heart goes out to all people who have been affected by such misconduct.
Singer has categorically denied wrongdoing.
In previous interviews, Malek has said he had “creative differences” with Singer and “it was a tumultuous set”.
