The writer and director, who won two Oscars for the 2004 drama Crash, was a member of the group himself before publicly removing himself from any association in 2009.

He believes that the press owes it to the public to put the Mission: Impossible star on the spot.

"His PR people are very smart," Haggis said to The Daily Beast. "But I don't know how journalists can continue to call themselves journalists if they aren't brave enough to ask a question. I mean, how big does the elephant in the room have to be before you ask about it?"
