Elijah Wood Says Hollywood Has A Child Sex Abuse Problem
Former child star Elijah Wood says the entertainment industry protects powerful people who abuse children.By Grant Suneson | May 22, 2016
Former child star Elijah Wood says Hollywood has a seedy "underbelly" of child sex abuse and that those responsible are being protected by the entertainment industry elite.
Wood, who's been acting since he was 8, told The Sunday Times, "There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind."
Wood compared the unnamed abusers to the British DJ Jimmy Savile, who faced dozens of accusations of rape and assault spanning more than four decades. Those claims were largely swept under the rug until after Savile's death.
