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.].....»»

Gambling and Some Interesting Celebrity Breaks

Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow. Many people have had great fortune through gambling and have become celebrities from rags. However, there have been many other stories which have made rags out of celebrities, too. It’s interesting to know how addicted our role models could be to gamble that they end up earning for gambling, sacrifice, family/relationships for gambling and what-not. So, let’s not waste time and talk about some interesting celebrity stories, which you might not have known. 1. Tiger Woods Well who does not like Tiger Woods and when did Tiger need introductions anyway? But the habit of gambling by Tiger might be unexplored. As per our sources, Tiger was introduced to gambling by Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley. Gambling became an addiction soon when he started hanging out with Michael and Charles a little too much. It is rumored that Tiger has a whopping $1 million limit in most reputable casinos in Vegas. Well, now you know where Tiger’s whopping brand endorsements and high golf contract prices are ending up. Also, Tiger does not believe in playing for smaller amounts and usually takes part in high stakes games of at least $25,000. Tiger highly appreciated his kind of table set up in casinos. The Mansion at MGM Grand Las Vegas is his favorite gambling destination. He has always loved a table for himself that was surrounded by party girls. Gambling and tables surrounded by party girls were one of the prime reasons that cost Tiger a divorce from his wife. Considering the expense of divorce which cost about $750 million and a relationship, gambling was a costly choice made by the famous golfer. 2. Michael Phelps Michael Phelps is one of the greatest swimmers the world has ever known. He is a famous Olympian who has won 28 Olympic medals for his country and has brought so much glory to his country and himself. This is the highest number of Olympic medals any individual has won, which is what has brought the swimmer a peaceful retirement life in his early thirties. He is retired now and is just 32 years of age but has achieved remarkable heights which certainly will define him for a lifetime. But, one lesser known fact or habit of Michael was gambling. He had a habit of not accepting defeat and a ‘try until you win’ attitude, which earned him a lot of success at Olympics. However, this isn’t the case with gambling. If you lose, you continue to lose heavily, and it is all about luck and fortune as the results are not directly proportional to the attempts or efforts. It took loads of time for Michael to understand this and sources say that he was into gambling so much that it sometimes happened for eight straight hours. This problem persisted with Michael during 2012. He was also caught for drinking and driving near a casino in Maryland, where he was probably stressed after a straight eight hours of continuous gambling. His life had become very stressed as he wasn’t used to losing and was desperate to win no matter what it had cost. This kept pushing him to despair. Somehow with the help of his friends and close ones, he came out of the gambling habit and now is leaving a peaceful and comfortable life. 3. Tobey Maguire Tobey the on-screen Spider-Man is as cool and smart in the real life as he is in his movies. He took some tips from a poker player Daniel Negreanu and turned out to make a fortune of $10 million. As per his close friends, tips from Daniel who is a professional poker player helped him make over $10 million. He also participated in a World Series of Poker tournament, which was the time when he encountered Daniel who probably changed his fortune. But, Tobey’s gambling habits got him to a legal hurdle. He, with some of the other influential celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio and Ben Affleck, were found to be participating in underground poker games, which are considered illegal due to the unaccounted money at stake. In the year, 2011 Tobey faced a lawsuit for organizing an illegal ring of underground poker. He didn’t take a financial loss due to gambling but a lawsuit against the Spider-Man certainly harmed his popularity. But, compared to other celebrities on the list, Tobey certainly gained a lot more than he lost due to gambling! 4. Allen Iverson Allen Iverson is a very famous professional basketball champion. The basketball player has retired now but played 14 seasons in NBA tournaments. Gambling had brought him loads of trouble for which Allen who was nicknamed as ‘The Answer’ had no answers. His case was probably the reverse of Tobey. Allen managed to lose over $200 million through gambling. Yes, you read it right — $200 million — only through gambling. This famous basketball player had received several heights in his career and received contracts of a lifetime from Reebok. However, due to gambling, he had lost a great deal of his money and was in severe debt and literally had to beg his teammates to pay off such a debt. Also, during the end of his career, he lost the lifetime contract from Reebok as his gambling debts and other negative news reports started surfacing. Allen’s wife filed for divorce and a statement by Allen read that he does not even have money to buy a cheeseburger and hence, he cannot afford any alimony. Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture... Gambling is something which is considered a luxury sport. It is a pastime and an occasion for many people to network and grow.

Casinos in Atlantic City and Detroit had banned Allen due to his inability to pay off his debts. This is a true story of a hero to zero only because of gambling! 5. Ben Affleck We had Ben Affleck’s name popping up with Spider-Man Tobey. The ‘Batman’ actor who will be seen in more ‘Justice League’ movies has had his share of gambling issues. His gambling venture wasn’t so beneficial as the super hit 2013 movie ‘Runner, Runner’ and is rumored to have been to a rehab center to come outside or quit the habit of gambling. His interest towards gambling is natural as he won the CA State Poker Championship in 2004. He is also fond of the game blackjack. We are not sure of the financials, but Ben was exposed to quite some mental pressure due to gambling. 6. Ray Romano Ray is an actor, stand-up comedian, and is known for the popular TV show, ‘Everybody Loves Raymond.’ He has also received an Emmy award for his role in the hit TV show. He has given his voice for Manny in the ‘Ice Age’ movies. The 60-year-old actor was one of the first actors who began receiving huge paychecks for TV shows. In 2009, he went on to produce a show called ‘Men of a Certain Age.’ The show had a character named ‘Joe’ who was a gambling addict and he tried his best to stay away from it as much as possible. It was a surprise to note that the character of Joe was based on Ray himself, which was something the actor later admitted. Ray still participates in several poker events, but he now knows about his limited skill sets and hopefully is only doing so for fun or as a leisure activity. He isn’t going to casinos now and prefers online poker and similar gambling in smaller amounts. As revealed in the TV series based on Ray himself, he used to seek help from different people anonymously when the gambling debt took over his financial peace. 7. Joe Francis Joe Francis the ever so controversial film producer named for many controversies and publicities. The businessman had been accused by several actresses for casting couch and inappropriate behavior. He is best known for the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ series. Wynn Hotels and others have filed a legal suit against him for unpaid gambling debts. Allegedly or surprisingly, the debt of over $2 million Wynn was given a discount of about 30 percent. 8. John McCain John is a sort of political celebrity in the United States as a senior senator in the state of Arizona. At over 80 years of age, John was a Republican candidate in the 2008 elections against Barack Obama. However, from sources and close friends, it was learned that John had at a time in his life been very addicted to gambling. A stretch of eight hours of gambling and ten hours of poker all are in shame where John had stretched for over 14-16 hours on the table. The extent to which he was attached to gambling was worrying and it certainly affected his choices during his senior senator regime. 9. Charlie Sheen Charlie Sheen has given us many entrepreneurs or trading goals by his role in the very famous movie ‘Wall Street.’ With a bucket of hit films and tremendous fan following, Charlie is one of the most controversial actors that the industry has ever known. He has recently surfaced for non-payment of taxes. He owes over $5 million in taxes which is a huge problem, especially for such a celebrity. He is also known for various other controversies that include drugs, alcohol, women, etc. Now coming to his gambling updates, he is known to be a huge gambling addict as revealed by his former spouse during his divorce case. Charlie was in contact with a bookie even while transporting his wife to the hospital while she was pregnant before the birth of his daughter. Clearly, gambling had gained the highest priority in his life over the welcoming of his own daughter and this certainly weakened his personal family ties. Also, the report exposed that Charlie in his peak lost over $200,000 every week — all thanks to gambling. This surfaced in 2006 and about eight years later, Charlie told his fans and the media that he has overcome gambling and doesn’t do it anymore. But controversies still follow him with tax evasion and non-payment and we hope he loses all of his bad habits soon. 10. Charles Barkley Another basketball player who has lost huge in gambling is Charles Barkley. After retirement, Charlies is working as an analyst in the NBA tournament. The 55-year-old also had been struggling due to gambling. Charles confessed to having lost about $30 million because of his gambling addiction. He also took counseling and then a break for two years from gambling but is a very difficult addiction, he is back to gambling now. Now he admits to gambling in casinos but in a much more controlled, monitored, and restricted manner. You never know, you might have new news story surfacing about a new gambling debt from Charles, as gambling is a galloping enterprise and you are always playing with trouble. Let’s Learn from Celebrities and Let’s Go Gambling Big celebrities have been in huge gambling troubles and it is certainly worthy to learn from their experiences and be as distant as possible from gambling activities. We have seen many stories and there are very few people who have made a fortune from gambling. Most importantly, we must make sure it never becomes a habit and addiction. Addiction to any activity can be very harmful and these celebrities have already experienced these issues. If people at such heights are not spared by a gambling addiction, it is very difficult for us to remain sheltered. So, to end the celebrity gambling league, gambling occasionally isn’t bad, but making it a source of income, or a habit or addiction should be avoided. [Photo Credit: Pixabay].....»»

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......»»

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. To be fair, these were the various trimesters when his young and pretend Spanish yoga instructor wife was off-limits for sexual deposits. 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 Teenage Daughter Defends Her Father In Facebook Post To Side Against Dylan Farrow!

Woody Allen's daughter has tried to stay out of the ongoing family drama.

But given the renewed scrutiny the filmmaker is facing over allegations that he sexually abused his other daughter, Dylan Farrow, Bechet Dumaine Allen now feels the need to speak up. Related: Ronan Farrow Responds To Brother Moses' Woody Defense The daughter of Allen and his wife Soon-Yi Previn broke her silence on the controversy in a recent Facebook post, making it clear that she supports her father. The 19-year-old wrote: "I never wanted to involve myself in the social media debates involving my father, but there comes a point when I realize that I can either continue pretending that none of this is going on, or stand up for him. He has been nothing but supportive and loving, and now it is my turn to support him." Bechet also linked to a lengthy blog post by Moses Farrow, in which her uncle (Allen's adopted son) claimed that the allegations against the Annie Hall director are false. Related: Morgan Freeman's Lawyer Demands Apology From CNN! Moses went on to allege that Dylan was brainwashed by their adopted mother Mia Farrow into thinking Allen abused her. Benchet, in her post, thanked Moses "for sharing his personal experiences so that people may begin to learn the truth about our family." Dylan, for her part, has maintained her stance on the abuse and argued that Moses' recent post "contradicts years of his own statements." Sounds like this civil war will never end for this dysfunctional family. Read Bechet's full post (below). [Image via Facebook/Dennis Van Tine/Future Image/WENN.].....»»

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.

Michael Caine Cancels Woody Allen

You’re officially a bad man when you’ve successfully managed to upset Batman’s butler. Michael Caine is completely over and done with Woody Allen. Which is interesting because there wasn’t a person unaware of what Woody had going on in his life. But for some reason in the wake of Harvey Weinstein’s fall from graceful grab ass, everyone became inspired to pick a side. There’s no more grey area and every actor must take a stance. You’re either on the side of justice or you support sexual assault with your silence. Even if Dylan Farrow never saw Allen’s woody everyone in Hollywood is erring on the side of caution. Michael Caine said he would not work with the director again after hearing that Dylan Farrow, his adopted daughter, had accused him of sexually abusing her as a child. “I am a patron of the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) and have very strong views about pedophilia,” Cain said. “I can’t come to terms with it, because I loved Woody and had a wonderful time with him. I even introduced him to Mia. I don’t regret working with him, which I did in complete innocence; but I wouldn’t work with him again, no.” The film veteran once told the Daily Telegraph about pedophiles: “If you want to bring back hanging for them, then I’m your man. I’ll pull the lever.” Michael also stated that because he dismissed the Weinstein rumor and it ended up being true that he could not miss the train when it came to Allen. Hopefully he doesn’t treat his stocks the same way, definitely strikes me as a man that would sell too early based on hearsay and emotions. Luckily there was enough room still on the “screw Woody” bandwagon. Caine sits comfortably somewhere next to Timothée Chalamet, David Krumholtz, Griffin Newman, Mira Sorvino, Greta Gerwig, Natalie Portman, Reese Witherspoon, and a slew of others. The talent available for Woody to cast for films has been reduced down to about two people. And one of them happens to be Tara Reid because pedophilia allegations won’t stop her payday. She’s desperate and a woman who thinks for herself. Allen’s pretty much done in the industry unless he wants to direct Sharknado 7.

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.

Woody Allen Finding More Support From Other Men

Javier Bardem understands that America is no country for perverted old men, and pedophile rapist should receive the cattle gun forehead special if it was legal to do so.

Javier Bardem understands that America is no country for perverted old men, and pedophile rapist should receive the cattle gun forehead special if it was legal to do so. But in an interview with a French newspaper, Paris Match, he came clean about his unpopular opinion regarding Woody. He truly believes that Allen isn’t one of the guilty guys and unfortunately had his name added to the #metoo hit-list after opening his mouth to warn everyone about the impending witch hunt. Prophetic. But even the most dubious accusations are sticking in this current climate and when the world knows the woman you’re sleeping with now was sort of your stepdaughter, it doesn’t help your case. Dylan Farrow’s sexual abuse at 7-years-old story is starting to sound more credible just based off of Woody’s preference for sexual partners. Handing out spankings and being called daddy may have been a turn on for Woody if you fit the prerequisite of being adopted and under his supervision. Javier Bardem is “shocked” by the treatment of Woody Allen and said he has “doubts” about the longstanding allegations of sexual misconduct against the filmmaker.“If there was evidence that Woody Allen was guilty, then yes, I would have stopped working with him, but I have doubts,” Bardem said, according to People. “I am very shocked by this sudden treatment. Judgments in the states of New York and Connecticut found him innocent. The legal situation today is the same as in 2007.” Woody is weird when it comes to women but he hasn’t done anything illegal. Regrettably, the smear campaign against his character is working. He’s no longer welcome in Hollywood or the nearest adoption agency. If Allen is anything like his character in Annie Hall I can see why he has to groom his dates from a young age. He’s so awkward that he would never find love if he wasn’t able to scout talent from the orphanage.

Javier Bardem Is "Very Shocked By This Sudden Treatment" Of Alleged Sexual Abuser Woody Allen

Woody Allen has found another ally in Tinseltown. As you surely know, amid the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, Dylan Farrow has once again brought to light her sexual abuse allegations against her adoptive father. While the Annie Hall director has vehemently denied the claims, Farrow and her brother Ronan have maintained that she was victimized [...] Woody Allen has found another ally in Tinseltown. As you surely know, amid the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, Dylan Farrow has once again brought to light her sexual abuse allegations against her adoptive father. While the Annie Hall director has vehemently denied the claims, Farrow and her brother Ronan have maintained that she was victimized by the Oscar winner. Related: Mariah Carey Denies Ex-Manager's Sexual Harassment Claims! As things are changing in Hollywood, many of Allen's former collaborators showcased their support for Dylan by denouncing the celebrated filmmaker and promising to never work with him again. This is NOT the case for Javier Bardem. For an interview with the publication Paris Match, the 49-year-old said he was "absolutely not" ashamed to have starred in Woody's '08 flick, Vicky Cristina Barcelona. In case you forgot, Bardem starred in the project alongside his now wife, Penelope Cruz, who won an Academy Award for her work. Javier didn't stop there, regarding Allen's controversy, as he revealed that he has "doubts" over the criticism of Woody. He noted: "If there was evidence that Woody Allen was guilty, then yes, I would have stopped working with him, but I have doubts." The accusations against Allen first surfaced in 1992, amid his explosive split from ex Mia Farrow. However, the industry legend was never charged -- something Javier mentioned in his defense of Woody. He continued: "I am very shocked by this sudden treatment. Judgments in the states of New York and Connecticut found him innocent. The legal situation today is the same as in 2007." At the time of the investigation, New York State Child Welfare ruled that "no credible evidence" definitively proved Dylan had been "abused or maltreated." Although Connecticut state attorney Frank S. Maco later admitted that they found "probable cause" to prosecute Allen, they felt the young Miz Farrow was too "fragile" to face a trial. Javier is in no way an enemy of the recent feminist movements, however, he is concerned that a divide is becoming more prominent between the different sexes. The A-lister concluded: "I'm fortunate to have been raised by a very strong mother who taught me to respect women. Today, we have the impression there are men on one side and women on the other, which sends a very bad message to the younger generation. The goal is not to be against each other but to be with others." We reaaaaally doubt women want to be lectured about how they should interact with men. Especially since all of this sexual misconduct is only JUST coming out. What do YOU think?? Does Javier have a point?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via WENN.].....»»
