Veteran filmmaker Woody Allen's time may very well be up in Hollywood.
Following the Golden Globe Awards, where Allen was publicly mocked by host Seth Meyers, and an essay penned by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow taking Hollywood to task for its continued acceptance of him, people are quickly canceling their memberships in the Woody Allen fan club.
Since this past Sunday, at least two people have expressed regret for working with Woody Allen: Justin Timberlake and "Lady Bird" director Greta Gerwig.
Having worked with Allen in 2012's "To Rome With Love," Gerwig faced probing questions regarding her relationship with the famed director following her film's win for Best Motion Picture Comedy.
She says she now admits to having made a mistake, and has vowed to never work with Allen again. In an interview with The New York Times, Gerwig said if she knew then what she knows now about Allen, she would not have worked with him.
“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,” she said. “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.”
She adds, “I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again.”
In regard to accusations made by Dylan Farrow that Allen sexually molested her as a child, Gerwig admits to feeling bad about potentially increasing Dylan's pain by exalting Allen.
“I was heartbroken by that realization," said Gerwig. "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.”
Since 1993, Dylan Farrow has maintained that Woody Allen sexually molested her while he dated actress Mia Farrow. Allen has emphatically denied the accusation, claiming that his former partner Mia coached Dylan as part of a vicious custody dispute. The charges were ultimately dismissed by authorities. Moses Farrow, Dylan's brother, has defended Allen's innocence while asserting that Mia was the abusive one.
