Dylan Farrow Calls Out Hollywood For Supporting Woody Allen Despite Her Longstanding Claims He Molested Her As A Child

While the #MeToo movement has sparked the takedowns of many powerful predators in Hollywood, one accuser has still not seen the justice she has so long deserved. That accuser is Woody Allen's daughter Dylan Farrow, who called out Hollywood stars for continuing to work with the iconic filmmaker despite her longstanding allegation that he molested her [...] While the #MeToo movement has sparked the takedowns of many powerful predators in Hollywood, one accuser has still not seen the justice she has so long deserved. That accuser is Woody Allen's daughter Dylan Farrow, who called out Hollywood stars for continuing to work with the iconic filmmaker despite her longstanding allegation that he molested her as a child in 1992. Related: Harvey Weinstein Accused Of Racketeering To Cover Up Assaults In an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times, Dylan blasted stars like Kate Winslet, Blake Lively, and Greta Gerwig for condemning the actions of Harvey Weinstein while keeping silent about the claims surrounding the Annie Hall director, whom they have all worked with over the past few years. In the piece titled Why Has The #MeToo Revolution Spared Woody Allen?, the subject's adopted daughter wrote: "We are in the midst of a revolution. From allegations against studio heads and journalists, to hotel maids recounting abuses on the job, women are exposing the truth and men are losing their jobs. But the revolution has been selective." Allen has repeatedly denied Dylan's allegations, suggesting that her mother Mia Farrow planted false memories in her brain out of bitterness (claims that Dylan denies). The allegations were investigated by sex-abuse experts at Yale-New Haven Hospital and no charges were ever filed. Related: Alec Baldwin Doesn't Want 'Innocent People' Hurt By Hollywood's Sexual Misconduct Problem Despite all that, Dylan maintains the filmmaker's "pattern of inappropriate behavior" with her says it all, continuing: "Allen denies my allegations. But this is not a "he said, child said" situation. Allen's pattern of inappropriate behavior — putting his thumb in my mouth, climbing into bed with me in his underwear, constant grooming and touching — was witnessed by friends and family members. At the time of the alleged assault, he was in therapy for his conduct towards me. Three eyewitnesses substantiated my account, including a babysitter who saw Allen with his head buried in my lap after he had taken off my underwear. Allen refused to take a polygraph administered by the Connecticut state police." No other allegations of sexual misconduct have come out against Allen, but Dylan says her accusation shouldn't be invalidated or ignored just because it is "still just too complicated, too difficult, too ‘dangerous,' to use [Blake] Lively's term, to confront." Related: Lorde Totally Predicted Hollywood's Predator Purge! Reiterating her claims -- not a word of which have changed over the years -- to an audience that now believes victims, she added: "I have long maintained that when I was 7 years old, Woody Allen led me into an attic, away from the babysitters who had been instructed never to leave me alone with him. He then sexually assaulted me. I told the truth to the authorities then, and I have been telling it, unaltered, for more than 20 years. Why is it that Harvey Weinstein and other accused celebrities have been cast out by Hollywood, while Allen recently secured a multimillion-dollar distribution deal with Amazon, greenlit by former Amazon Studios executive Roy Price before he was suspended over sexual misconduct allegations? Allen's latest feature, Wonder Wheel, was released theatrically on Dec. 1." Wow. Time to cough up an actual response, Kate... Allen had no comment on Dylan's LA Times piece, but his rep released the following statement to EW: "Dylan Farrow's allegations against Woody Allen, which she first made 25 years ago, have been thoroughly examined by law enforcement officials and child welfare investigators. The investigators concluded unambiguously that Dylan Farrow was not sexually abused. No charges were ever filed, and the reason is simple: because Woody Allen is innocent." We'll see if that holds up. Read Dylan's full op-ed HERE. [Image via Dennis Van Tine/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

Greta Gerwig On Woody Allen: “If I Had Known Then What I Know Now”

“If I had known then what I know now” alert. Self-assessed indie darling Greta Gerwig went from being that girl in Frances Ha – the number one movie recommendation from Netflix’s home screen for the past five thousand years – to being a female-forward progressive adorable stunning brilliant charismatic indie wunderkind and director of the 2018 Golden Globes-winning flick […] The post Greta Gerwig On Woody Allen: “If I Had Known Then What I Know Now” appeared first on wwtdd. “If I had known then what I know now” alert. Self-assessed indie darling Greta Gerwig went from being that girl in Frances Ha – the number one movie recommendation from Netflix’s home screen for the past five thousand years – to being a female-forward progressive adorable stunning brilliant charismatic indie wunderkind and director of the 2018 Golden Globes-winning flick Lady Bird. Now that Gerwig is merrily skipping down her path to success it’s time for her to look over her shoulder at any PROBLEMATIC people who helped her get there and tell them to fuck themselves. One of these such people is Woody Allen, who frequently casts sexy rising starlets in his flicks. While this doesn’t apply to Gerwig, she still managed to nab a role in his 2012 movie To Rome with Love. Gerwig recently sat down with The New York Times, and when asked about her thoughts on Allen, took the opportunity to set the record straight: 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,” Gerwig said. “It is something that I take very seriously and have been thinking deeply about, and it has taken me time to gather my thoughts and say what I mean to say. I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film. I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again. “If I had known then what I know now” is usually intended for experiences that happened more than six years ago, but apparently what happened between 2012 and now was enough to push Gerwig over the edge. No clues existed before then that could have pointed to Allen as being a child fucker. None. Ugh if only she had known, she would have definitely forfeited the inexplicable prestige that comes with starring in an Allen flick. Without a damn doubt! Gerwig continues on how Allen’s offspring Dylan Farrow’s 2014 confession of her father’s abuse rocked her world: Dylan Farrow’s two different pieces made me realize that I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realization. I grew up on his movies, and they have informed me as an artist, and I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward. People Magazine points to the fact that Gerwig isn’t the first actress to siphon off Allen’s success before miraculously seeing the light after the check clears. Ellen Page also starred in To Rome with Love and had this to say this past November: I did a Woody Allen movie and it is the biggest regret of my career. I am ashamed I did this. 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. I made an awful mistake. And this was two months after Flatliners, so Page means business when she says it was the “biggest regret” of her career. The moral of the story is that when it comes to capitalizing off of alleged child sex offenders for professional gain, it’s better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission.

Dylan Farrow Not Sweet On Timberlake’s Complicit Cake Tweet

Justin Timberlake is currently undergoing his Katy Perry era woke reinvention, and if you haven’t seen his new music video for Supplies, just know that, according to Paste Magazine, it features “…a wall of TV screens flickering with clips of Harvey Weinstein, Donald Trump, Kevin Spacey, racist cops, violent protesters and other current villains.” I wish […] The post Dylan Farrow Not Sweet On Timberlake’s Complicit Cake Tweet appeared first on wwtdd. Justin Timberlake is currently undergoing his Katy Perry era woke reinvention, and if you haven’t seen his new music video for Supplies, just know that, according to Paste Magazine, it features “…a wall of TV screens flickering with clips of Harvey Weinstein, Donald Trump, Kevin Spacey, racist cops, violent protesters and other current villains.” I wish it was five years ago and I could use a more colorful vocabulary in referring to Timberlake’s mental capacity, but for now I’ll just call him a complete fucking re-moron. Timberlake is so eager to jump on a bandwagon with any semblance of a following that I can’t even imagine how he would have fared in Nazi-era Germany. Well. He would have fared well. Directly before hopping onto the woke wagon, Timberlake was riding the starring-in-an-alleged-child-molester’s-movie bandwagon, which had recently been abandoned by Scarlett Johansson but was still carrying passengers like Rebecca Hall and Timotheé Chalamet – both set to star in Woody Allen’s 2018 flick A Rainy Day In New York. Timberlake starred in Allen’s 2017 movie Wonder Wheel, and if he consumed any media besides gay porn, he would know that those who have worked professionally with Woody Allen (a clarinet enthuasist. All good headlines require explaination) need to blend into the wallpaper right now instead of setting themselves up like complete re-idiots on Twitter. Yesterday he twatted: Random question: Can someone please explain the saying, “You just want your cake and to eat it too.” What else am I about to do with a cake?? Is that part of your standup? If so I’m in. I can’t even imagine the Twitter notifications that Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow  – who detailed a childhood of alleged sexual assault at her stepfather’s hands – has set up right now, but it didn’t take her long to locate Timberlake’s tweet and respond with: The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time. You can’t retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. – retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. – eating the cake). Like James Franco, Timberlake sported a Time’s Up pin to the Golden Globes, when he really should have been in a bunker somewhere waiting this whole mess out. The Allen Factor really is one of the most absurd parts of the #MeThree! movement in Hollywood. Your dog probably sniffed out the fact that Allen’s dick has smelled like the entire line of Johnson & Johnson baby products for decades now. Allegedly. The hundreds of actors who reaped professional gain by working for him aren’t the first people by a long shot to turn a blind eye when it was convenient, but to come back as the wokest of the woke is just too much. Hall and Chalamet – who claimed to have been completely in the dark about Allen’s behavior – donated their notoriously paltry Allen salaries to progressive charities while Johansson – who has worked with Allen on three movies – publically slammed alleged assailant James Franco at the LA Women’s March. Now Timberlake is awakening his audiences to the modern-day political and societal struggles facing Americans? I just can’t deal with it. These people are just so goddamn horrible. Countdown to Timberlake donating the four dollars he made from Wonder Wheel to the first charity his Grindr date recommends. As soon as I publish this I’m writing about Kim Kardashian’s tits, which seem almost not 100% fake when compared to Timberlake.   The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time. You can’t retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. – retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. – eating the cake). — Dylan Farrow (@RealDylanFarrow) January 23, 2018   Photo Credit: Ryan McGinley / Pacific Coast News The post Dylan Farrow Not Sweet On Timberlake’s Complicit Cake Tweet appeared first on wwtdd......»»

Timberlake starred in Allen’s 2017 movie Wonder Wheel, and if he consumed any media besides gay porn, he would know that those who have worked professionally with Woody Allen (a clarinet enthuasist. All good headlines require explaination) need to blend into the wallpaper right now instead of setting themselves up like complete re-idiots on Twitter. Yesterday he twatted: Random question: Can someone please explain the saying, “You just want your cake and to eat it too.” What else am I about to do with a cake?? Is that part of your standup? If so I’m in. I can’t even imagine the Twitter notifications that Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow  – who detailed a childhood of alleged sexual assault at her stepfather’s hands – has set up right now, but it didn’t take her long to locate Timberlake’s tweet and respond with: The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time. You can’t retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. – retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. – eating the cake). Like James Franco, Timberlake sported a Time’s Up pin to the Golden Globes, when he really should have been in a bunker somewhere waiting this whole mess out. The Allen Factor really is one of the most absurd parts of the #MeThree! movement in Hollywood. Your dog probably sniffed out the fact that Allen’s dick has smelled like the entire line of Johnson & Johnson baby products for decades now. Allegedly. The hundreds of actors who reaped professional gain by working for him aren’t the first people by a long shot to turn a blind eye when it was convenient, but to come back as the wokest of the woke is just too much. Hall and Chalamet – who claimed to have been completely in the dark about Allen’s behavior – donated their notoriously paltry Allen salaries to progressive charities while Johansson – who has worked with Allen on three movies – publically slammed alleged assailant James Franco at the LA Women’s March. Now Timberlake is awakening his audiences to the modern-day political and societal struggles facing Americans? I just can’t deal with it. These people are just so goddamn horrible. Countdown to Timberlake donating the four dollars he made from Wonder Wheel to the first charity his Grindr date recommends. As soon as I publish this I’m writing about Kim Kardashian’s tits, which seem almost not 100% fake when compared to Timberlake.   The saying means, for example, you can’t support #TIMESUP and praise sexual predators at the same time. You can’t retain your credibility as an activist (i.e. – retain the cake) and, at the same time, praise a sexual predator (i.e. – eating the cake). — Dylan Farrow (@RealDylanFarrow) January 23, 2018   Photo Credit: Ryan McGinley / Pacific Coast News The post Dylan Farrow To New Woke Justin Timberlake – Time To Face The Clarinet appeared first on wwtdd......»»

Alec Baldwin Defends Woody Allen, Might Be Drinking Again

There was a time not so long ago when Alec Baldwin was traversing the streets of Manhattan, drunk, pounding car hoods, and unleashing homophobic and racist slurs upon his fellow progressive intellectuals.

The […] The post Alec Baldwin Defends Woody Allen, Might Be Drinking Again appeared first on wwtdd. There was a time not so long ago when Alec Baldwin was traversing the streets of Manhattan, drunk, pounding car hoods, and unleashing homophobic and racist slurs upon his fellow progressive intellectuals. To be fair, these were the various trimesters when his young and pretend Spanish yoga instructor wife was off-limits for sexual deposits. The man was frustrated. That plus gin plus decades long unaddressed rage issues turns you into a wealthy cursing hobo. The one thing you could never fault Baldwin for was his truth telling. It may not be your truth, or even The Truth, but you never felt like he was fronting. Hence, why you had a short-lived MSNBC show host yelling “faggot” at every effeminate male he could find on 5th Avenue. So when Baldwin comes out in defense of Woody Allen, insisting all of his non-evidentiary based detractors cool it with the blind allegations, it means something. He knows Woody Allen fairly well and he believes the man to be, in the least, not guilty. This in the face of numerous, far hipper actors and actresses denouncing ever having worked with Woody Allen in the past, or last week, and turning over their relatively meager Allen film paychecks to the Church of Time’s Up. A tithing for the eight-figure ladies suffering in Brentwood. Baldwin’s statement makes clear, he doesn’t support pedophiles, in case you were wondering: “Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose. But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career. Is it possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent? I think so. The intention is not to dismiss or ignore such complaints. But accusing ppl of such crimes should be treated carefully. On behalf of the victims, as well.” To believe that Woody Allen is one creepy mofo takes little encouragement. Marrying your crazy baby mama’s previously adopted young adult daughter can only come off as creepy. On the other hand, the man is 82, and the sole crime he’s been accused of in his life is a molestation charge from the child of a woman he was rather unpleasantly divorcing at the time (and banging her adopted daughter). That situation also smacks of evidence planting and cajoling by mom. Baldwin shows some guts defending a guy he admires who gave him some solid parts in films when Baldwin was otherwise rather not-busy in the motion picture business. This in contrast to the other men of Hollywood who are scared shitless to speak up, even if but to say, hey, how come we have all these verdicts and sentencing, but no trial. Liberal used to reflexively stick up for the town creep accused by the mob of every sex crime in town. Now they are the mob. Or most of them. Some are still reflexively doing their part. Alec Baldwin. Who would’ve thunk it? Photo credit: Splash News / Instagram The post Alec Baldwin Defends Woody Allen, Might Be Drinking Again appeared first on wwtdd......»»

Woody Allen’s ‘Wonder Wheel’ Spins With Vittorio Storaro Visuals

Filmmaker Woody Allen is often praised for his witty dialogue and the A-list ensemble he manages to collaborate with in each of his features.

Allen’s features, however, are also blessed with a beautiful visual sense. During what some may considered his creative peak, Allen extensively worked with cinematographer Gordon Willis (Annie Hall, Manhattan, Broadway Danny Rose). Allen’s work with Carlo Di Palma was also revered thanks to their work on Hannah and her Sisters, Bullets over Broadway,and the criminally underrated Shadows and Fog. Allen’s latest director of photography choice is Vittorio Storaro (Apocalypse Now, Reds), and Storaro’s painterly, golden light was evident in last year’s Cafe Society and now with Wonder Wheel. Click on the media bar to hear Allen discuss working with Storaro, who’s considered one of cinema’s most talented cinematographers: Wonder Wheel, starring Kate Winslet and Justin Timberlake, is now playing nationwide.

ATTN: American People! Here Is The Next Big Scandal Donald Trump Will Probably Get Away With!

We hope you're sitting down for this: Fox News is being sued… and it's NOT for sexual harassment! No, the latest legal trouble to plague the network is about Donald Trump's favorite subject: fake news. In case you haven't heard the story of how a young Democratic National Committee staffer named Seth Rich was the one who [...] We hope you're sitting down for this: Fox News is being sued... and it's NOT for sexual harassment! No, the latest legal trouble to plague the network is about Donald Trump's favorite subject: fake news. In case you haven't heard the story of how a young Democratic National Committee staffer named Seth Rich was the one who gave the DNC info to WikiLeaks, good -- because it's complete bullshit. Related: Sean Hannity Lost A LOT Of Advertisers After Spreading The Story! Even Fox retracted the story after a week, after a groundswell of offense -- see, Rich was murdered tragically young and was unable to defend himself. Of course, right wing conspiracy theorists used this as part of the narrative; he must have been murdered by the evil Democrats. Disgusting. Fox News tarnished the name of a dead man for what? Ratings? Nope. According to a new lawsuit filed on Tuesday, it was about distracting the American public from the Russia investigation -- and at least one person involved said TRUMP SIGNED OFF ON IT. Former police detective and sometime Fox News paid commentator Rod Wheeler claims in his suit that the story was knowingly fabricated by a reporter named Malia Zimmerman and a wealthy Trump supporter named Ed Butowsky to "establish that Seth Rich provided WikiLeaks with the DNC emails to shift the blame from Russia." Butowsky openly admits he reached out to Rich's parents and convinced them to let him hire Wheeler to investigate the murder. But according to the lawsuit, it was NOT to find the truth, but because they already had the story planned and wanted a credible source: "Specifically, it was their aim to have Mr. Wheeler confirm that: Seth Rich was responsible for the leak of DNC emails to WikiLeaks; and Seth Rich was murdered by a Democrat operative because he leaked the emails to WikiLeaks." Wheeler and Butowsky even met with Sean Spicer to give him updates on the investigation; Spicer admits the meeting took place but says the President didn't know about it. But that's not what Butowsky said at the time. In a text message sent to Wheeler at the time, Butowsky explicitly refers to Trump approving the story: Butowsky now claims he was kidding about the President's involvement. Interesting how often they use that excuse, isn't it? That same excuse cyber bullies and Twitter trolls always use. Huh. BTW, there are also voicemails available with the same confirmations. He doesn't sound like he's "kidding." If this is true, the President is partially responsible not just for spreading fake news but for CREATING it. Related: 10 Times Donald Trump Helped Spread Fake News! When Wheeler didn't give Butowsky exactly what he wanted, the lawsuit says, Zimmerman wrote up the article with fake quotes from Wheeler, including: "My investigation up to this point shows there was some degree of email exchange between Seth Rich and Wikileaks." This article and these quotes became the basis of Fox News' reporting on the story. According to the lawsuit, Butowsky had a hand in that as well, coaching the hosts of Fox and Friends on how to talk about it. Afterward Wheeler came out against Fox News, saying he had been misquoted. Eventually the network had no choice but to retract. Even though Fox News pulled the story, which appears to have no basis in fact, Butowsky kept it going. He tweeted: "Fox News story was pulled b/c Rod Wheeler said [he] didn't say a quote ... How much did DNC pay him?" Of course. Because anyone who denies the story is part of the coverup. Now Wheeler is suing over the tarnishing of his name. According to the suit: "Wheeler was subsequently forced to correct the false record and, as a result, lost all credibility in the eyes of the public. Mr. Wheeler has suffered irreparable damage to his reputation and his career will likely never recover." Well, he's right about that. And yet somehow Zimmerman is still working on stories for Fox News... Video: Late Night Hosts Bid Farewell To Fired Anthony Scaramucci The troubled network is already defending itself against the claims. President of news Jay Wallace released a statement saying: "The accusation that FoxNews.com published Malia Zimmerman's story to help detract from coverage of the Russia collusion issue is completely erroneous. The retraction of this story is still being investigated internally and we have no evidence that Rod Wheeler was misquoted by Zimmerman. Additionally, Fox News vehemently denies the race discrimination claims in the lawsuit — the dispute between Zimmerman and Rod Wheeler has nothing to do with race." So was Trump a part of all this? Was he willing to spread false information to distract from his own political problems, to blame a murder victim to defend himself? Well, we are talking about a man who takes money from children's cancer charities, so it's not the greatest leap. [Image via FoxNews.].....»»

Natalie Portman’s Creative “Woke” Woody Allen Spin

Since pretty much every actor and actress in Hollywood has kissed the ring slipped onto the crepey blotched hand of Woody Allen over the six decades that he has been directing five good movies and three-hundred terrible ones, pretty much every actor or actress in Hollywood must face questioning regarding his sexual misconduct because this is 2018 and we want to hear these things. Natalie Portman starred in one of those memorable Allen classics, Everyone Says I Love You, in 1996. When interrogated about her involvement with a sex offender in a recent interview with Buzzbottomfeeder pimping her new flick Annihilation, Portman put every lawyer from every courtroom procedural ever to shame by flipping the script with the calculation and litigiousness that only the owner of a fake degree from Harvard could: I don’t think that’s what the conversation should be about. I think it should be about: Why didn’t Elaine May make a movie every year? Why didn’t Nora Ephron make a movie every year? Where’s the female version of Bill Cosby? Why don’t we see any Asian women in films? There’s so much art that’s being lost by not giving opportunities to women and people of color. Let’s not talk about what man’s career is over. Let’s talk about the vast art trove we’ve lost by not giving women, people of color, people with disabilities, and the LGBTQ+ community opportunities — let’s talk about that loss for all of us in art. Let’s talk about that huge hole in our culture. I don’t want talk about “Isn’t it sad that this person who’s made 500 movies can’t make movies anymore?” That’s not for me to decide. And it’s also not what I’m upset about. Someone learned about anaphora in her fake poetry class. I was all set to defend Portman on this one, because 1996 was a very different time – after all it was only three years after Americans were first introduced to the predator mantra from Dazed and Confused: “I get older, they stay the same age.” “Woke” didn’t mean “faux lesbian Katy Perry” and many of the allegations against Allen were not widely know. So questioning her about it is a shameless, vapid ploy for headlines. But Portman had to go and sound insufferable, and in fact the title of her interview is “Natalie Portman Is The Woke Actor We Need Right Now.” Portman is basically saying that once a situation becomes too convoluted we should sweep it under the rug and think about next steps, which is going to be very useful for the likes of Bill Cosby, Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K., and of course Woody Allen. What’s done is done! Free pass for everyone as long as Greta Gerwig can make boring movies.

Kate Winslet Defends Working With "Incredible" Woody Allen — AND Roman Polanski!

The Titanic actress is always up for an acting challenge -- so when the opportunity came to star in Woody Allen's twisty drama Wonder Wheel, she was chomping at the bit. Related: Kate & Leo Quote Titanic To Each Other When They're Alone! While working with the controversial filmmaker may have given another actress pause, Kate admits the allegations made against Allen weren't a deal breaker. Because sexual assault or not, the man knows how to write a complex character! In an interview with The New York Times, the actress gushed over the "incredible" director's talents as she recalled reading the Wonder Wheel script for the first time: "When I read the Woody Allen script, I thought, ‘Oh my God, I can't do this.' I read the script sitting on the staircase in my house, and didn't move until I finished reading. I just sat on the staircase for an hour, in complete shock and panic. But that's the best feeling, because sheer terror sometimes is the greatest challenge of all." With the chance to play such an "extraordinary part," the Oscar-winner had no choice but to accept the challenge and dive head first into the Annie Hall director's latest artistic vision. Related: Leo & Kate Have An Epic Titanic Reunion To Save Icebergs! The accusations made against Allen popped up into Winslet's head, of course. But being the polite, professional actress she is, Winslet sort of just ignored her thoughts on the matter: "Of course one thinks about it. But at the same time, I didn't know Woody and I don't know anything about that family. As the actor in the film, you just have to step away and say, I don't know anything, really, and whether any of it is true or false. Having thought it all through, you put it to one side and just work with the person." So, she didn't want to be burdened with the thought of working with an (alleged) sexual deviant? Don't make us barf, Rose. If clumsily defending Allen wasn't enough, Winslet decided to sink the ship further by mentioning her "extraordinary" experience working with Roman Polanski -- who, for those who don't know, has also been accused of sexual assault: "Woody Allen is an incredible director. So is Roman Polanski. I had an extraordinary working experience with both of those men, and that's the truth." The truth hurts, kids. But hey, at least Kate has her Oscar-bait role for this year!

The Weinstein effect is finally starting to affect the ones most onlookers would have considered untouchable even if they were caught red-handed fist deep in a starlet with a prewritten denial and apology letter just incase the ol’ it wasn’t me excuse doesn’t work. You may now toss the collector’s edition of Manhattan that you’ve been saving on VHS for so long in the trash bin right next to the remainder of Woody’s career while there’s still room. Allen’s upcoming film A Rainy Day In New York starring Selena Gomez is getting the I Love You, Daddy treatment without any new accusations of sexual misconduct. The cast from the film collectively decided that Woody’s time was up and he was next in line to be burned in the Hollywood witch hunt. Rumors are swirling that Woody Allen’s latest film, A Rainy Day In New York, will not secure a theatrical release as former collaborators line up to condemn the filmmaker due to allegations of sexual abuse. Three of its stars, Timothée Chalamet, Griffin Newman and Rebecca Hall, have already distanced themselves from Allen. Either celebrities in Hollywood don’t have an internet connection or have their heads so far up their ass it’s hard to focus on anything outside of their own shit. Woody is weird but technically didn’t break any laws or has been convicted of anything officially. Due process obviously doesn’t mean diddly-squat to Dylan Farrow. She is willing to talk to anyone but the actual police. I don’t agree with serving an adopted daughter second helpings of what her mother wouldn’t marry but there are worse people in this world.  If celebrities shunned and shamed everyone they had heard a rumor about Hollywood would completely come to a halt.
