It’s rare to hear anyone attacking Woody Allen these days, so when Scarlett Johansson , the biggest female movie star in the world right now, stepped into his region it was a big deal.
This week the Avengers: Endgame whiz
Um, what? An accused progeny molester ?? How’s that?
He told France2 4 😛 TAGEND
” I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses[ and] not one of them has ever complained about me , not a single accusation. I’ve worked with, hired women in the top faculty, in every faculty, for years and we’ve always paid them exactly the equal of men. I’ve done everything that the #MeToo movement would love to achieve .”
Those things are great. And some of his movies are even really funny.
But that doesn’t make up for the crime parties believe you dedicated, subject! You have to realize that!
In the early’ 90 s the Midnight In Paris director was investigated after his daughter Dylan Farrow accusing it of molesting her; he was not prosecuted.
To this day she maintains her story, and following the completion of # MeToo and Time’s Up, the path beings view that accusation should certainly deepened, to the point Allen has become something of a pariah.
In fact, Amazon ran so far as to give back the rights to his most recent movie, A Rainy Day In New York , as they didn’t want to exhaust it.
But Woody says he thinks it’s a temporary setback for the movie, whose whizs Rebecca Hall and Timothee Chalamet bequeathed their stipends to women’s philanthropies 😛 TAGEND
” To me the movie is being released all over the world. If people experience the movie, I think it will eventually be released in the U.S .”
On being persona non grata in Hollywood, the filmmaker says 😛 TAGEND
” I couldn’t care less. I’ve never cultivated in Hollywood. I’ve always worked in New York and it doesn’t matter to me for a second .”
Um, right, but Hollywood isn’t just referring to El Lay. We’re getting close to the point where nobody will even are active in your movies!
Allen’s next job couldn’t find financing in the Mood, eventually turning to the Spanish company which produced Vicki Cristina Barcelona . But he doesn’t mind; he says 😛 TAGEND
” If tomorrow nobody would finance my films and none would finance my theater play-acts or nobody would write my bibles, I’d still get up and write because that’s what I do. So I will ever wreak. What happens to it commercially is another matter .”
Allen says he won’t merely retire , not ever.
” I haven’t thought of adjourn. I don’t have to see movies, if people didn’t want to finance my movies I would be very happy working in the theater, or writing notebooks, but I like to get up and write. I don’t like to get up and do nothing .”
Well, we can’t imagine the women guiding the #MeToo movement are going to take him up on his mascot furnish anytime soon.
So maybe time to get started on that book?
