Greta Gerwig side-steps Woody Allen questions

"The people who join this movement without taking any kind of personal accountability for the ways in which their own words and decisions have helped to perpetuate the culture they are fighting against, that's hard for me to reconcile."

Allen has disputed her account. "Not just because he was a great thinker, because I have been known to have some reasonably profound insights myself, although mine invariably revolve around two eighteen-year-old cocktail waitresses and some rope handcuffs", reads the notes in a draft of short story "My Apology", according to Morgan. So if you are going to wear black in solidarity for survivors of sexual harassment and abuse in post-Weinstein Hollywood - AND you are going to tweet about the new Time's Up campaign - perhaps make sure you don't have a Woody Allen film on your film credits first?

Directed by Allen, Wonder Wheel featured Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake and Juno Temple in key roles.

Dylan wrote on Twitter, "Can one be a "vocal campaigner against sexual harassment" and a vocal supporter of Woody Allen?".

"That is an admirable and worthwhile objective, I hope these women change the world. She really, for lack of a better term, took the bull by the reins and said, 'I'm going to do this project, ' and did it".

Farrow says she stands with them, but called out the hypocrisy of the continued support for Allen and his works.

Operation Black on the Golden Globes red carpet was always going to be tricky to navigate - especially for those who have films on their resume with the dodgy likes of Woody Allen. 'You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. I struggle with how a powerful force like Justin Timberlake can claim to be in awe of the strength of women and stand with them at this #MeToo moment and then in the next breath say that working with Woody Allen is a "dream come true".

Farrow's continued drive, and her refusal to be silenced by others' insulting enthusiasm over her alleged abuser, is inspiring and wholly impressive.

"You know, it's something that I've thought deeply about and I care deeply about, and I haven't had an opportunity to have an in-depth discussion where I come down on one side or the other", she added.
