Selena Gomez Asked About Working with Woody Allen Despite Allegations Against Him

Selena Gomez is going to be starring in an upcoming Woody Allen movie, and during an interview, was asked if she considered the director’s past before signing on for the film.

If you don’t know, Dylan Farrow, Woody‘s adopted daughter, alleged that he sexually assaulted her when she was a child. Dylan‘s brother Ronan supported her claims. Woody eventually responded to the allegations.

“Was Woody’s past something you thought about before signing on to the movie?” Selena was asked, who which she told Billboard, “To be honest, I’m not sure how to answer — not because I’m trying to back away from it. [The Harvey Weinstein allegations] actually happened right after I had started [on the movie]. They popped up in the midst of it. And that’s something, yes, I had to face and discuss. I stepped back and thought, ‘Wow, the universe works in interesting ways.’”

Selena also spoke in the same interview about women coming forward with sexual assault stories.

    As if the accusations of incest were unknown before Weinstein’s scandal

  • Ram

    wow, what a non-answer. complete non-hollywood people know about woody allen – EVERYBODY does. you know what her answer really is? “I don’t care. I’m more important and my career is more important.” Right up there w/Kate Winslet’s denial.

    also selena, maybe next time don’t be so obvious going w/bieber to east LA w/o security to get something ‘special’. you’re lucky all the outlets didn’t run it.

  • Mattia

    Wow….. So this is what it looks like when she’s faced with an actual question that casts a negative light on her choices. I’m sure her handlers will inform her on the right thing to say next time.

  • Ram

    I’m not so sure.

  • Mattia

    A team is focus grouping the best path forward for Selena as we speak. Just like they decided that doing a Woody Allen was a good idea in the first place and pointed Selena in that direction.

    That’s what bothers me about some of these vacuous media darlings. They rarely are confronted with questions which directly call into question choices they made.

    We’re so used to hearing the pre planned trite when a reporter actually catches them off-guard it’s refreshing.

  • Kelley

    she is dumb, and pathetic. no decency. just wanted more fame and accolades, she doesn’t give a fuck about abuse victims. never did

    This shows how unprepared these manufactured artist are, they have a team of people who write, say, and do everything for them. It isn’t until they are asked legitimate questions of actual happenings in the world that they stubble and struggle to form an articulate answer. These people have no excuse to be so ignorant; they live in a world full of possibilities. What a waste resources these young artist have, they use them for the most shallow things. No wonder they can’t function and turn to substances or develop mental illness.

  • Casey C

    and here we have the perfect example of what NOT to say.

  • Wendy

    Every time one of these celebrities is asked about him they don’t actually answer the question, they just skirt around it. Clearly they don’t care what he did.

  • 777

    That was a stupid response. HW allegations are the only reason she needed to “face and discuss it”? In other words, no, she didn’t give a damn about the allegations against Woody.

  • Gina

    Interesting non-answer there, Selena.

  • 777

    They don’t care about what he did because they weren’t his victims. They all jumped to comment on HW because it involved them too.

    Do you know why all these actors keep working with Woody all these years since 1992 since his ex wife tried to destroy him during divorce? Because even person with half a brain can see right through it. She is a sick person, Hollywood Medea who doesn’t mind hurting her own children to get back at her cheating husband who leaves her for a younger woman, her own daughter. Woody Allen was sleeping with adult women his whole life and only an idiot would believe that someone becomes a pedophile over night and all that alleged in such a nasty divorce and custody battle by the wife left for her own ADULT daughter. He was cleared by Social Services after 14 months of investigation and the same Social Services allowed him to adopt more children later with Soon-Yi. That would never happen if there was even a shred of doubt in his innocence. His adopted son with Mia, Moses Farrow who was 15 years old during that time recently said it never happened and that he doesn’t know if his sister says it happened to please her mother or because Mia implanted memories in the mind of a seven year old girl. Mia Farrow is a disgrace for all the women and mothers in this world! Wake up!
