Frankie Muniz 'Walked Off the Set' of Malcolm In the Middle Over 'Rude' and 'Disrespectful' Behavior

Former child star Frankie Muniz recently shared a story from his time on the set of Malcolm in the Middle, where he stood up for himself in the face of disrespectful behavior from assistant directors. During an episode of I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here, Muniz revealed that he once walked off the set, leading to his absence in two episodes of the popular comedy series.

Despite facing challenges, Muniz, who played the titular role in Malcolm in the Middle, emphasized the importance of standing up for oneself in a professional environment. The 38-year-old actor, now a race car driver, expressed his disdain for the negativity and rejection often associated with the entertainment industry, noting that his positive experience was an exception rather than the norm.

Muniz, who is a father to a three-year-old son, also disclosed his reluctance to have his child pursue a career in acting due to the unsavory aspects of the industry. His comments come in the midst of allegations against prominent figures in children's television, highlighting the darker side of show business.
