Scarlett Johansson Steps Up To support Woody Allen after Harassment Allegations Against The Director

Dylan Farrow is weighing in on Scarlett Johansson’s declaration that she would “work with Woody Allen anytime.”

Johansson, an original member of and donor to the Time’s Up organization, told The Hollywood Reporter she stands by the director, despite sexual assault accusations levied against him by his adoptive daughter.

Farrow says that Allen sexually molested her when she was a child, which she has written about in op-eds, open letters and on camera. The filmmaker has always denied the allegations and has never been criminally charged. Responding to a tweet from the Los Angeles Times about Johansson’s comments Wednesday night, Farrow said Johansson had a lot to learn.

When the allegations against Allen resurfaced in 2017, many members of Hollywood’s A-list distanced themselves from the director, and Amazon even axed a film deal with Allen.

Johansson, however, who acted in Allen’s films “Match Point,” “Scoop” and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” told the magazine she’d be up for working with Allen again.

Dylan Farrow asks why thespian, whom she’s accused of sexual abuse, has been ‘spared’.

Johansson has been a vocal supporter of Time’s Up, an anti-harassment initiative launched in January of 2018. Less than a month after the initiative’s founding, Johansson called out actor James Franco at the Los Angeles Women’s March for wearing a Time’s Up pin to the Golden Globes days before multiple women accused him of sexual misconduct in the Los Angeles Times.

“How might an individual publically stand by a corporation that helps to produce support for victims of sex crime whereas in-camera preying on those that haven’t any power?” she said in her speech, adding, “I want my pin back, by the way.” “It was virtually such as you found one thing you did not even understand you required,” Johansson told THR of her conversations with other women in the industry.

“It was once I 1st understood what the word ‘triggering’ really meant. Now it’s part of the zeitgeist, but it was like: ‘Oh. Oh, the thing I’m feeling. That’s what triggering means.’ I didn’t know. Suddenly, you didn’t have to take it anymore.”
