WASHINGTON, USA – Actor Jonathan Majors, who was dropped by Disney’s Marvel after being found guilty last month of attacking his ex-girlfriend, said in an interview on Monday, January 8 that he was responsible for problems with the relationship but not for her injuries.

In his first televised remarks since a New York jury found him guilty in December, Majors told ABC News he should have never been in the car with his then-girlfriend. Prosecutors alleged Majors assaulted her in a hired car in March, leaving her with a broken finger and other injuries.

“If I’m man enough or brave enough to say ‘I want to see somebody else or I’m done now,’ I’m not in that car, we’re not here,” he said when asked if he was responsible for her injuries. 

“I’m responsible for that… none of her injuries,” he added in the pre-taped interview that aired on Good Morning America.

A statement for the woman, Grace Jabbari, said Majors’ comments continued to show he still takes “no accountability for his actions,” and “demonstrates a clear lack of remorse for his actions,” ABC reported.

Majors, who faces sentencing February 6 after being found guilty of one count of assault and one count of harassment, was a rising Hollywood star set to play the leading role in Marvel’s upcoming Avengers: The Kang Dynasty after portraying villain Kang the Conqueror in 2023’s Ant-Man.

Majors said he hoped to work in Hollywood again. Asked if he thought he deserved a second chance, he said: “I think I do, I hope other people think that.”

Majors and Jabbari met on the Ant Man set, according to ABC. Their relationship was unhealthy and he should “have walked away” from it, he said.

“I’m sorry,” Majors told ABC. “I was reckless with her heart…. not with her body.” – Rappler.com
