Scarlett Johansson Defends Woody Allen Amid Sexual Abuse Allegations

Check out what's clicking today in entertainment.

But when it comes to Woody Allen, widely decried by the #MeToo movement for his alleged sexual abuse of his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, Johansson strongly differs. "If you ever see a paparazzi photograph of me, know that I was definitely being harassed and having a awful day, and my daughter [Rose, whom she shares with Dauriac] was being harassed". "I love Woody", she says in response to a Hollywood Reporter question about the filmmaker. "I really believe if people actually did vote, our government would look the way it's supposed to, but people just don't vote".

Although multiple actors who have worked with Allen - including Michael Caine and Timothée Chalamet - have since distanced themselves from the 83-year-old director, Johansson strongly defends him.

"I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it", she shares. As to whether or not allegations of past inappropriate touching will sink him, the actress also said, "I'm not sure". He maintains his innocence, and I believe him ... "Things needed to be stirred up, and so people have a lot of passion and a lot of strong feelings and are angry, and rightfully so. It's an intense time", she said.

Woody Allen has a defender in frequent collaborator Scarlett Johansson.

Allen has always denied Farrow's allegations and he was never prosecuted.

Actors who like Johansson support Allen include Alan Alda, Javier Bardem, and Anjelica Huston.

I'm delighted to be part of this team", Gershon said, while Shawn added: "He discovered me and there's a special magic about filming with him once again; it's something very lovely. You think she would know better than to once more invite controversy with statements like this, but after her whitewashing comments, this sadly doesn't surprise me. "For me, if there was one candidate that I felt we could all unite behind, certainly that would be the candidate that I would back". "But for now I don't agree with the public lynching that he's been receiving, and if Woody Allen called me to work with him again, I'd be there tomorrow morning".
