Colin Firth Is Also Done with Woody Allen

Colin Firth Is Also Done with Woody Allen

The actor has lent his voice to a rising chorus by speaking out against Allen, who stands accused of sexually assaulting his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, in 1992-he has denied the allegations.

However he has now told the Guardian newspaper: 'I wouldn't work with him again'.

Dylan Farrow, who was adopted by the director and actress Mia Farrow, gave a TV interview on Thursday insisting she was telling the truth about being molested by Allen when she was seven years old according to DailyMail. He also accused her mother Mia of "coaching" her. "Dylan's older brother Moses has said that he witnessed their mother doing exactly that - relentlessly coaching Dylan, trying to drum into her that her father was a risky sexual predator", the 83-year-old said.

In light of Hollywood's Time's Up movement and the renewed interest in Farrow's allegations, actors who had previously worked with Allen have been trying to distance themselves from him. She also said that he had been inappropriate at other times, including asking her to get into bed with him while he wore only underwear.

Dylan continues to deny her mother manipulated her into going public with the story.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's star Rachel Brosnahan said in a podcast with The Hollywood Reporter that she regretted working with Allen on the Amazon series Crisis in Six Scenes.

Woody Allen's adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow, said her father sexually abused her when she was a child.

In recent weeks a growing number of actresses including Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall Ellen Page and Mira Sorvino have announced they regret working with Allen
Woody Allen did molest me, says stepdaughter Dylan Farrow

Colin Firth has announced that he will never collaborate with Woody Allen again. Farrow stated that it was hard to see Woody Allen during the clip and she broke down in tear when he denied sexually abusing her.

Timothee Chalamet, her co-star, said the same.

She said he had been her "hero", adding: "I loved my father".

"What I don't understand is how is this insane story about me being brainwashed and coached is more believable than me being sexually assaulted by my father", she said. A CT state prosecutor at the time found probable cause to charge Allen, but thought Dylan Farrow too fragile to face a celebrity trial. In 2013, Vanity Fair interviewed her about everything she went through.

He and Mia were embroiled in a bitter split. And earlier this month, Mira Sorvino, who won an Oscar for her role in Allen's 1995 film "Mighty Aphrodite", wrote an open letter apologizing for taking this long to publicly support Dylan Farrow. I can not begin to imagine how you have felt, all these years as you watched someone you called out as having hurt you as a child, a vulnerable little girl in his care, be lauded again and again, including by me and countless others in Hollywood who praised him and ignored you.

David Krumholtz: Last year, Krumholtz appeared in Allen's film "Wonder Wheel" - a decision he later called "one of my most heartbreaking mistakes".
