Actress Julianne Moore is sticking by director Lee Tamahori after the filmmaker was arrested for posing as a drag prostitute in Los Angeles last month.

Moore is set to work with the Die Another Day director on new movie Next and insists she wouldn't think about pulling out of the project because of Tamahori's scandal.

She says, "I feel bad for him. I think the experience was probably pretty upsetting and humiliating and he's been very, very brave about it."

The former James Bond director was arraigned in Los Angeles last week after allegedly soliciting an undercover cop, while dressed as a woman.

The director was arrested in Hollywood last month, after he approached the police officer who was in his car, entered the vehicle and offered to perform a sex act for money.
