Bryan Cranston says Spacey and Weinstein could get a second chance

Asked if there might be a way back "for the Weinsteins and Spaceys of this world", Cranston mused: "It would take time, it would take a society to forgive them and it would take tremendous contrition on their part".

Cranston stressed that bad acts are "deeply rooted psychological, emotional problems" that 'take years to mend, ' should subjects be willing.

Last week, in another interview, Cranston said that while Spacey was a "phenomenal actor", he was "not a very good person". I think in the face of it, we should let that open.

Actor Kevin Spacey recently apologised following accusations he tried to seduce a 14-year-old boy, saying in a statement that he couldn't remember the incident, and confirmed publicly for the first time he is gay.

Spacey has not issued a response to any of the allegations beyond Rapp.

Meanwhile, Weinstein has been accused of sexual misconduct by over 50 women since The New York Times and The New Yorker documented decades of alleged sexual misconduct and sexual assault involving a number of women in detailed articles earlier this month.

The actor said that we'd have to determine whether the person in question deserves a second chance on a "case-by-case" basis, instead of adopting a hardline stance against the alleged abusers.

Cranston said it would be wrong to not give them a chance at redemption. We shouldn't close it off and say "To hell with him, rot, and go away from us for the rest of your life". "Let's not do that, let's be bigger than that".

He added that, rather than discounting disgraced figures forever for their actions, society should "leave it open for the few that can make it through that gauntlet of trouble and who have reclaimed their life and their dignity and respect for others".

He added that it "would be egotistical for anyone to say, 'I hope he fails.' To that person, I would say, 'F- you".
