The Absurd Reason 'Boy Meets World' Actor Says He Was Fired From His Agency

Matthew Lawrence is reflecting on his dark experience in Hollywood.

The Boy Meets World actor, 43, opened up on the latest episode of his podcast, Brotherly Love–which he co-hosts with brothers Joey and Andrew Lawrence–where he detailed a very disturbing situation he was put into after being offered a role in a Marvel film.

Without revealing any names or a timeframe of when the encounter occurred, Lawrence divulged that a prominent director in the industry asked him to strip for a role.

“There’s been many times in my life where I’ve been propositioned to get a huge role,” the actor revealed. “I’ve lost my agency because I went to the hotel room—which I can’t believe they would send me to—of a very prominent Oscar award-winning director who showed up in his robe, asked me to take my clothes off, and said he needed to take Polaroids of me.”

“And then if I did X, Y, and Z, I would be the next Marvel character. I didn’t do that, and my agency fired me because I left this director’s room," Lawrence added.

The conversation occurred when the Mrs. Doubtfire actor and his brothers began to talk about the #MeToo movement, which he called a "very good thing," but stated that he believes men haven't received the same support as women when it comes to sexual harassment in the industry.

Terry Crews comes out and says it, people are laughing at him. People don’t support him,” Lawrence said. “They kick him out. Why? Because he’s a man that represents masculinity, and I think our society is less ready to hear that situation going on with men than they are with women.”

He continued: “Not a lot of guys in my opinion have come out and talked about this in the industry. There is also this same situation. Now granted, it’s probably about a third of what women go through. The amount of men… Men go through this as well, whether it’s another woman or another man in power.”

Lawrence began working in the industry at the age of four with his first role being in 1984 as Danny Carrington Jr. in Dynasty. He then went on to star as Robin Williams' son in Mrs. Doubtfire, along with other notable television series such as Brotherly Love and Boy Meets World.
