Greta Gerwig on Woody Allen: I regret working with him

Greta Gerwig on Woody Allen: I regret working with him

From women's black gowns to the statistics and talking points they came armed with for interviews, the solidarity and determination on display at this arguably frivolous event was powerful. "I made an very bad mistake". There were the interviewers who were wholly unprepared to be talking about these issues. "Just to speak exclusively of 'Irrational Man, ' the relationship is genuinely a plot point".

Allen has been surrounded by controversy over longstanding sexual abuse allegations against him by his daughter Dylan Farrow, and in a New York Times interview Tuesday, Gerwig addressed the scandal.

"I would like to speak specifically to the Woody Allen question, which I have been asked about a couple of times recently, as I worked for him on a film that came out in 2012".

"That said", she continued, "the people who join this movement without taking any kind of personal accountability for the ways in which their own words and decisions have helped to perpetuate the culture they are fighting against, that's hard for me to reconcile". "I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again", said Gerwig.

Justin Timberlake is fresh off Wonder Wheel, which he called "a dream come true", making his pin nothing more than a hollow, trendy symbol.

That spotlight means a harsher glare the skeletons/creative choices of one's past, which in Greta's case is her decision to star in Woody Allen's 2012 film To Rome with Love - largely due to the industry-wide takedown of men who mistreat women, and the various accusations of sexual abuse Allen has faced throughout his career.

What do YOU think of Greta's new position on the controversial filmmaker?

Dylan Farrow was already completely over all this guarded posturing.

In addition, Farrow also revealed that his relationship with his estranged father, Woody Allen, is deeply complicated.

He also remained neutral when asked if he believes the industry will eventually turn on Allen the way it had on Weinstein.

Whether Allen's other supporters, including a defensive Lively, will change their minds like Gerwig remains to be seen. "I had yet to find my voice and was not who I am now and felt pressured, because 'of course you have to say yes to this Woody Allen film.' Ultimately, however, it is my choice what films I decide to do and I made the wrong choice".

"If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film."
