In the shocking piece, the 35-year-old gives the impression that he personally knows about such crimes.

On Monday, Wood spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and said his comments were misinterpreted.

He said :

The Sunday Times interviewed me about my latest film but the story became about something else entirely. It prompted a number of false and misleading headlines. I had just seen a powerful documentary and I briefly spoke with the reporter about the subject which had consequences I did not intend or expect. Lesson learned. Let me be clear: This subject of child abuse is an important one that should be discussed and properly investigated.”

The former child star asserts that he has no personal knowledge of a secret child abuse ring in Hollywood.

“But as I made absolutely clear to the writer, I have no first-hand experience or observation of the topic, so I cannot speak with any authority beyond articles I have read and films I have seen.”

At the very least, we hope this event created a dialogue about ways we can eliminate child abuse in all industries.
