Martin Freeman Reacts to Outrage Over ‘Miller’s Girl’ 31-Year Age Gap With Jenna Ortega: The Film Is ‘Grown Up and Nuanced’ and Not Saying ‘Isn’t This Great?’

Martin Freeman has addressed the backlash surrounding 'Miller's Girl,' in which his character has sex with Jenna Ortega's high school-age character.

The erotic thriller opened in theaters in January and caused a stir on social media due to intimate scenes between Freeman and his co-star Jenna Ortega. He then cited Liam Neeson in Steven Spielberg’s 1993 Holocaust drama “Schindler’s List” as an example of how taking on a role doesn’t necessarily mean an actor is automatically endorsing the subject matter. Arjona added that she had many discussions on the “level of nudity” with Ortega and Freeman and said she spoke to them about “different variations of how they wanted to shoot these scenes so that audiences could watch them at test screenings to see what was too much.”
