Kristen Stewart Defends Working With Woody Allen

The 26-year-old actress was recently criticized by his son Ronan for turning a blind-eye to the sexual abuse his sister Dylan revealed happened when she was a child.

“I was like, ‘What do you think? We don’t know any of these people involved. I can personalize situations, which would be very wrong.’ At the end of the day, Jesse [Eisenberg] and I talked about this,” Kristen told Variety. “If we were persecuted for the amount of shit that’s been said about us that’s not true, our lives would be over. The experience of making the movie was so outside of that, it was fruitful for the two of us to go on with it.”

    Excuse me but exactly what amount of “shit” has been said about Jesse Eisenberg? I’ve never heard anything about him besides his work which is a good thing, on the other hand if people talk shit about her is because she was sleeping around with certain movie director in public places while she was in a very public relationship. In other words, she dug her own grave.

  • Just Saying

    She’s a home-wrecker and Woody Allen is a child molester, Why does she has to drag poor Jesse Eisenberg to all of this?

    You don’t have to “personalize” a situation to have empathy. Though I guess a girl who’d knowingly sleep with a rather sleazy married man with children can’t process the concept of empathy so easily.

    There is no reason why these actors including KStew should be bullied or shamed into not working on a Woody Allen film. He is an extremely talented writer, director and producer with decades of film experience creating the types of intelligent, artistic movies which actors love. His movies are the opposite of the big blockbuster types which appeal to the masses and in which the actors takes roles mainly for the money. Having that said, Woody Allen was never tried for, let alone convicted of the alleged abuse. If anyone thinks there are not two sides to this story, the following article is an interesting one.

  • Jake93

    Jessie Eisenberg is not the darling of the tabloid and paps she is.he is a good actor and a little bit private with his personal life the biggest shit about her foul mouth and was caught humping her married director in public

  • Cathy

    All she said they don’t care as long as they getting good stuff while working with allen

  • Ladyd712

    He molested a child. I don’t think there are too many people who do not believe Dylan. Especially since he left her mother for a child bride that he helped raise from a little girl. Sick man. Kristen should just keep her mouth shut because every time she opens it she just looks like a bigger idiot. She has no morals or scruples so why wouldn’t she work with a molester. Anyone with a ounce of compassion for what abused children go through would never work with someone who is an abuser.

  • Poison Ivy

    Were you there when he molested her? You need to use the word alleged or accused. You need to also get your facts straight. WA never raised Soon Yi from a little girl. She was adopted around the age of 11 (they weren’t sure of her exact age) by Mia Farrow and Andre Previn. Woody was never her adopted father and didn’t spend much time with her. Soon Yi was the adopted daughter of WA’s GF who lived in a separate residence. Is it creepy that he dated and married Soon Yi, yeah, but she was around 17-19 when this happened. That doesn’t mean WA is a peedo and molested Dylan. If she has any evidence for this, she needs to sue him and be done with it. This business of her brother getting involved to get himself publicity for a failing career and for his mother to feel vindicated for being left years ago has gotten old. I wish WA would sue MF for all the back child support he paid her for Ronan who is clearly not his son. She cheated on WA and made him pay child support all those years. You know something else, MF would love to be in WA movies and became upset when he replaced her in upcoming roles after their separation and all the scandal and accusations. That is from a book written by their nanny who was actually very pro Mia Farrow. So MF has no reason to call out other actors for taking roles in his films. These things always go back and forth with this topic. People just need to think for themselves and not act like villagers with their torches out, ready to throw a person or anyone connected with them under a jail cell. You should also read about MF and the homewrecker she was herself. She also supported Roman Polanski, and has a brother that is a convicted child molester who she is not very vocal in condemning. Kristen and other actors need no explanation for taking their roles.

  • laura

    So tired of these Hollywood people who can’t put together a sentence that makes sense….
    I’m not even commenting on the topic, but just reading this I wonder why can’t they speak like people who actually went to school.

    (What does it mean?)

  • Lili

    She should shut up. People rarely make up be mosleted. How hard is it to jelieve seeing that he banged his partner child ?
    Thays sickening not only justice was not served but the guy gets to have its past brush aside just like the other rapist Polansky.

  • Poison Ivy

    It’s not the same situation. Dylan, only seven years old at the time, may have been coached and brainwashed by Mia Farrow. There were many inconsistencies in her story. There have been cases where a therapist or vengeful ex attempts to plant false memories in a child when they want to hurt the ex. Dylan’s memories may not be her own. The accuser of RP was a 13 year old girl who was raped, had clearly remembered what happened to her and very different from the Woody Allen case.

  • MAXXX

    her comments are really unnecessary. well, i guess we cant personalise her situation too, being a home-wrecker and cheater. She recently cheated on Soko with alicia again… once a cheater always a cheater

    Actually, journalist’s work also include an editing work of a talking speech but they wont edit because later they may be blamed in “misleading” information.

  • Shay

    So, basically she’s okay with children being raped if she gets a job.

  • xyz

    He molested almost of all of his children, not just Dylan

  • xyz

    Did Woody Allen pay u for this totally cretin post? Please say smth in Roman Polanski or Jared Fogle’s defence too, will u?

  • xyz

    She has to bow down to him otherwise shed be a persona non grata in Jewlywood/Hollyweird

  • Poison Ivy

    um, no he didn’t. Only Dylan is accusing him.

  • Mimilarue82

    obviously you don’t see anything wrong that a step father would take naked picture of his step child at 17 and even then at the time Woody was very powerful so he was never persecuted for holding juvenile pornography. By the way u are defending him u must have some shit skeleton in your closet.

  • Poison Ivy

    No skeletons in my closet honey. Typical internet response from the uneducated and brainwashed by the media like yourself, attacking a poster who thinks for themselves. Didn’t I say it was creepy of his relationship with Soon Yi? She was 17-19 at the time as they don’t know her actual age and it was consensual. They have been married like 25 years or something. Time to let that go. He’s a perv, who’s always had a thing for late teenage girls, but doesn’t make him a peedo of little girls.

  • Poison Ivy

    Honey, speak English. I did not defend Polanski, but Mia Farrow does. I’m not defending anyone in fact. I’m just not ready to throw someone under a jail or say actors should not take a part offered to them in WA films. Stick to the subject matter. Nobody mentioned Jared Fogle or whoever Smith. To say posters are paid is another dumb and typical response.

  • Alphonse

    I was thinking the same thing. All defense for WA but accusations and put downs for Mia Farrow, Dylan and Ronan and probably the babysitter too. Dylan knows if she sues she will be humiliated further (especially with the likes of this type of poster on the jury) and Ronan, who is apparently doing this for publicity This poster reminds me of the Mel Gibson apologists slagging off everyone and making Mel G the victim.

    Daily Mail Article: Judge Elliott Wilk, the presiding judge in Allen’s custody suit against Mia concluded that there is “no credible evidence to support Mr. Allen’s contention that Ms. Farrow coached Dylan or that Ms. Farrow acted upon a desire for revenge against him for seducing Soon-Yi.”

    It would appear this poster believes everyone is lying including the babysitter who walked in on Allen acting inappropriately with Dylan and gave evidence in court except of course WA.

    No-one should support Keisha either, the thoughts were probably put in her head.

  • SW

    Has she even talked to the possible victims before deciding to work with him? She said that she doesn’t know any of the people involved, yet the only person of them that she is involved with is Woody Allen. So how come she has no interest in the possible victims but likes to work with an alleged child molester? She just cares for her career.

  • Will

    False allegations are very rare, and we know for a fact he took pornographic pictures of and underage girl for whom he was at the very least a father figure too. And he was cheating on Mia with her underage daughter. And we know for a fact Kristen stewart cheated on Rob with her director because there are picture of that as well. Not made up shit according to her.

  • InjunTrouble77

    We should not be so ready to pass judgment on the basis of what someone may think happened when she was seven. I am quite sure this whole story of molestation has been planted in her head by her mother, creating a fake memory. The girl now believes something which never actually happened. We need to give Woody the benefit of the doubt.

  • Dee

    “… it was fruitful for the two of us to go on with it”… So your personal interest outweights the wrongs he has done? Good for you.

  • Dee

    prosecuter said there was enough to move forward but didn’t due to the childs fragile state. this is why statue of limitations on child sex crimes should be lifted.

  • VanityInsecurity

    I think the Farrow’s have been adamant on what happened for years now, if they were lying it would have ended years ago.. they are still hell bent on making sure everyone NEVER forgets what happened to their family because of this pedophile. People need to see the truth & accept it.
    These artists have to constantly defend working with this loser, cus it needs to be.. but paychecks are the real reasons these actors continue to work with this moron. thats all it is. like prostitutes really..

  • VanityInsecurity

    She would defend working with him, being that her morals are all screwed up as well.. stfu KStew no matter what you do no one will forget you had an affair with a married man & helped brake up a family. loser.

  • Arrow 12

    He married his step daughter for goodness sakes. Please don’t be ignorant to that fact. That is really disgusting. He didn’t just wake up on the day she turned of age and say I think I love her and want to be with her. That relationship was going on before she turned 18. But of course you need to see pictures of that before it is a fact. You know circumstantial evidence can be used to convict someone. There are no such things as morals and common sense in the world.

  • WhatCanyaDo

    Stop presuming the victim is always innocent. Especially when the victim is the child of a mentally unstable mother. Is Woody Allen guilty? Don’t know. But neither do you. So clutch your pearls and shut up – you weren’t there.

  • WhatCanyaDo

    Thank you for being the only smart one on this message board. If you look at the facts – Mia Farrow is a nutcase. Also, Woody is 70, wouldn’t there be more victims if he was a pedo by now? UHHHH YES.

  • WhatCanyaDo

    They’re not very rare. Go look up the gang rape case at Duke University. You know nothing.

  • WhatCanyaDo

    If Woody Allen was some serial child predator like you losers paint him out to be, there would be 40 other people coming out like Cosby. Where is everyone else? OH RIGHT, just the daughter of his mentally unstable mother. INNOCENT. KEEP HATING.

  • WhatCanyaDo

    OH, and she only accused him of this after he left her for a younger women (HOW CONVENIENT) Next. No case. Innocent. Done.

  • WhatCanyaDo

    50% of people cheat so in your theory 50% of people are morally corrupt. Good job.

  • VanityInsecurity

    people who do cheat are morally corrupt what world do you live in?

  • WhatCanyaDo

    You should be on Dr. Phil. You have issues.

  • WhatCanyaDo

    Poison – don’t bother trying to reason with these people – they are people at home during the day – no lives – probably from a mental hospital, real people, with real brains, know the facts, it’s a he-said-she-said, and i don’t believe either or. But very convenient she accused him after Mia broke up with him. No case. Let the haters hate. I’m gonna go watch a Woody marathon and hope that all the people who commented against him have someone accuse YOU of sexual abuse then you will be pleading for “truth” too right?

  • VanityInsecurity

    LMAO. Gina is that you?

  • What!!

    I am so disheartened with these comments. It is not surprising though, most people even familiar with the Woody Allen case are white and white men make up 90% of all men convicted of crimes against children and like 92% of all men convicted of sex crimes against children. That is why they are giving this molester a pass, they see themselves in him.

  • Gish88

    stupid answer. Bill Cosby got by for decades without so much as a second guess.

  • Gish88

    I am less likely to pass judgement on people (Like Mia) according to half-a$$ed conjecturing like you gave here.

  • Gish88

    “There is no reason why these actors including KStew should be bullied or shamed into not working on a Woody Allen film. He is an extremely talented writer, ”

    you sound just like one of those soulless Roman Polanski arse lickers.

    As to that link, that smug idiot (I’ve read him before) is absolutely an Allen sycophant. His defense is dripping with lame arguments (this isn’t about Soon Yi, but that didn’t stop him from trying to use her to paint Mia as a bitter liar) and excuses. Is that really the best you can offer?That author is an absolute douche.

  • Lili

    Okay lets follow your logic : its only a valid accusation if your remember it clearly ?
    I’m 22 I remember perfectly thing from when I was 7, Kids are not stupid. I’m sure there was some kind of evaluation and she passed them all. Since the prosecutor choose not to prosecute him for her stability and like Ronan Farrow said WA used that an a proof of his so called innoncence.
    And for your education countless of rapes happen whithout the person remembering it. Its de sad world we live in where we know the shit that going on but we still doubt it because its a famous person.
    I’m sure in the 50′s till the 80′s celebrities males who were pedophiles weren’t a hard thing to come by. And normalize almost. That doesnt mean it was right. I stand against rape, always.

  • Ladyd712

    You have not got a clue what you are talking about Soon Yi was a child when Woody was dating Mia – he knew her as a child. He had a child and adopted others with Mia, so they were soon Yi’s half siblings. He slept with his children’s half sister who was underage at the time, Before he had broken up with her mother, Even the judge pointed that out to him. As far as doubting someone who had been molested word – that is the reason so many who have been molested are afraid to speak up. By the way a brother would certainly get involved when his sister has been a victim of sic man.On what grounds would he sue Mia? Woody has done a recent interview where he admits his relationship with Soon Yi is paternal, she needed his help growing up.But nothing creepy about that.You really need to get a clue before making these stupid statements.
