‘Learn From It & Move Forward’: The Boys Actor Antony Starr Claims Celebs Deserve Second Chances

Antony Starr, the actor from the series, The Boys, is widely loved for his performance as Homelander. Homelander is a spoof character of Superman, who is villainous and the leader of a group of hedonistic and careless superheroes. He is arrogant and narcissistic and cares little about actually protecting the people he vowed to save. He was the main antagonist before Black Noir and the archenemy of Butcher. The star has stayed in the headlines for his acting but recently the headlines were quite different. He was arrested for assault in Spain.

Bathuel Araujo, the 21-year-old who reported the actor and fought him told that the actor even yelled at the police saying there will be the results of their actions. He said, “You don’t know who you’ve messed with. You won’t know who I am and what I’ve done.” The actor spent a night in jail after his arrest.

Antony Starr, in an interview, said that he is aware of the mistakes he made. But did not wish to delve into the details of the incident. “They’re out there. They’ve been said. I’ve got nothing to add to that,” he said to New York Times. The actor did take responsibility for what transpired at the bar.

He said, “I got myself into a situation that was negative and I reacted poorly, and the way forward from that was very clear,” Starr continued. “It was quite simply to take ownership of it, which I do, and then really learn from it and move forward.”

Araujo too later wrote that he holds no ills against the actor. He shared, “I feel that all humans have the right to make mistakes and he was no exception. He has lived the consequences of his actions and I hope he has learned from them. I wish him good things and I hope he doesn’t go through the same thing again.”
