    They may not the highest ranking members but they do have power, like when the cast of the X-men films protested Singer for writing Halle Berry poorly. And many actors are producers, like Tom Cruise. On his films he outranks directors of his own movies. They do have some responsibility, their own cast mates and crew will get the brunt of it when others don't stand up for them or look the other way because they don't want to risk a pay check. That's what the bad managers want them to do, it let's them get away with everything. When everyone is complicit nobody's going to rock the boat too hard because then people will ask questions about what they doing when x happened.

    This is a little off topic, but a new revelation about that story finally came out recently. It had nothing to do with how Halle Berry was being written. Singer had fired producer Tom DeSanto for banning Singer's drug dealer from the set. This led to Hugh Jackman nearly being seriously injured during a stunt because Singer was high (again). The cast protested to Singer about getting DeSanto back, which is where the famous "You can kiss my black ass" quote from Berry came from, which Singer's minions later leaked to the industry press as Berry simply being upset about her character's poor treatment (which I'm sure was also true).

    Ah, Hollywood. What horrible behavior can't you cover up?

    Speaking of spin, here's an article Nelson & Johns had done on them back in 2017. It's a very interesting read given what we now know about what was going on behind the scenes...
