'I've said all I need to say on that topic.'

Brie Larson has addressed her apparent snub to Casey Affleck at this year’s Oscars.

During the ceremony, Brie presented the award for Best Actor to Casey, but many pointed out that she appeared not to applaud him as he came up to deliver his speech.

This was taken by some as a response to past sexual harassment allegations made against Casey seven years ago, which he vehemently denied at the time, and were later settled out of court.

Brie - who has done volunteer work on behalf of sexual assault victims, and won an Oscar for her portrayal of a sexual abuse survivor in ‘Room’ last year - has now had her say on the matter.

Although she did briefly hug him as he came on stage to collect his award, Brie looked downcast throughout Casey’s acceptance speech.

She had a similar reaction when Casey won the same award at this year’s Golden Globes, while Chrissy Teigen seemed suitably unimpressed during the Academy Awards, even appearing to take a nap while the ‘Manchester By The Sea’ star collected his Oscar.
