'Green Book' Director Peter Farrelly 'Deeply Sorry' For Flashing Genitals

“Green Book” director Peter Farrelly said Wednesday that he is “deeply sorry” for exposing himself to colleagues in the past after resurfaced interviews raised questions about his behavior behind the scenes.

Farrelly, who directed a slew of comedies such as “Dumb and Dumber” and “There’s Something About Mary” throughout the ’90s, used to make a habit of flashing his genitals to cast and crew members, according to articles published decades ago and recently rediscovered by The Cut.

Farrelly once said that he and his brother, frequent collaborator Bobby Farrelly, performed what they described as a joke “easily 500 times,” including in front of studio executive Tom Rothman and actress Cameron Diaz.

“When a director shows you his penis the first time you meet him, you’ve got to recognize the creative genius,” actress Cameron Diaz, who starred alongside Ben Stiller in “There’s Something About Mary,” told Newsweek.

“I was an idiot. I did this decades ago and I thought I was being funny and the truth is I’m embarrassed and it makes me cringe now,” Peter Farrelly said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “I’m deeply sorry.”
