Bobby Cannavale really got to the heart of “Spotlight,” the new movie about the Catholic church’s cover-up of a child molestation scandal.
“It’s not okay to (molest) children. Period.” he told us, adding for clarity, “Period, period, period, period, period, period.”
Nonetheless, the “Ant-Man” star, who hosted the event to celebrate the film, told us that he’s still devoted to the church.
“I had an incredible experience at Catholic school, personally,” he told us. “Like, some of the priests that I grew up with saved my life in many ways.”
“I came from a broken home and they helped me get through a lot of things really in a solid way.”
The Oscar-hyped movie, starring Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, John Slattery and Rachel McAdams, tells how the Boston Globe revealed the coverup of a child molestation case in 2001.
Cannavale wasn’t too excited about telling us the latest on his pregnant girlfriend, “Bridesmaids” star Rose Byrne.
When we asked how she was feeling, he said, ”Great!” but added, “Let’s not make that turn — I don’t want to talk about that.”
