Scarlett Johansson is refusing to turn her back on filmmaker pal Woody Allen, insisting she’s convinced he didn’t molest his child.
A host of the director’s previous leading women, including Greta Gerwig, Freida Pinto, Ellen Page, Rebecca Hall and Mira Sorvino, have actually declined to work with him again following claims made by his estranged child, Dylan Farrow, and supported by her brother Ronan and their mom Mia, Woody’s ex-partner, however Scarlett has joined the growing list of his fans.
In a brand-new Hollywood Press reporter interview, the starlet reveals she has had hard discussions with her friends and she feels sure he didn’t do the important things he’s accused of doing.
” I like Woody. I believe him, and I would work with him anytime” she informs the publication. “I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of discussions with him about it.
I have been extremely direct with him, and he’s extremely direct with me.
He preserves his innocence, and I think him.”
Her Vicky Cristina Barcelona co-stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem have actually also supported Allen, as have Alec Baldwin and Gina Gershon, who stars in his newest movie, Rifkin’s Festival. She insists getting to deal with the moviemaker is “a dream become a reality”.
Woody has been investigated over the molestation allegations, however he has never been charged with a criminal activity and has actually always preserved his innocence.
Dylan Farrow went public with her side of the story in 2014, and she has actually utilized the ongoing #MeToo and Time’s Up projects against sexual misconduct to contact her father’s Hollywood partners to turn their backs on him.
