Scarlett Johanson has says extensively to the director about claims of sexual abuse and ‘any time would work with him.
Scarlett Johanson has turned out firmly with regards to Woody Allen, saying she “cherished the movie producer and accepted he is honest of the maltreatment allegations made by his embraced little girl Dylan Farrow.
Allen was cleared of the charges first leveled by his then partner Mia Farrow after two separate months-long investigations. But Dylan, now an adult, maintains she was abused.
Oscar winner Allen has steadfastly denied the accusations but a number of stars, including Colin Firth, Greta Ger wig and Mira Sorriness, have said they would not work with him again.
Scarlett Johnson appeared in Allen’s “Match Point” (2005), “Scoop” (2006) and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” (2008).
I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it,” Johansson, said referring to the allegations.
I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him,” she added.
Amazon put Allen’s latest film “A Rainy Day in New York” on ice over the sex abuse allegations, but another distributor will release the film in Europe later this year after it opened in Poland in July.
In February, the US director filed a $68 million suit against Amazon for breach of contract, accusing the streaming giant of canceling the film because of a “baseless” accusation that he sexually abused his adopted daughter.
Allen is currently in a legal dispute with Amazon, the backer of his most recently completed film A Rainy Day in New York. Amazon terminated a four-film agreement with him, citing his comments about the #Me Too movement. Johanson, a founding member of the Time’s Up campaign, acknowledged other’s concerns about Allen. “It’s hard because it’s a time where people are very fired up, and understandably,” she said. “Things needed to be stirred up, and so people have a lot of passion and a lot of strong feelings and are angry, rightfully so. It’s an intense time.
