Greta Gerwig on Woody Allen: 'I Will Not Work for Him Again'

Greta Gerwig is speaking out about working with Woody Allen on a movie that came out over five years ago.

The 34-year-old actress and Lady Bird director has been a supporter of the #TimesUp movement, so people have questioned why she worked with Allen, someone who has been accused of sexual assault.

Greta has been asked about working with Woody several times recently and she just gave an answer to the New York Times.

“I would like to speak specifically to the Woody Allen question, which I have been asked about a couple of times recently, as I worked for him on a film that came out in 2012,” Greta said. “It is something that I take very seriously and have been thinking deeply about, and it has taken me time to gather my thoughts and say what I mean to say.”

“I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film. I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again,” she added. “Dylan Farrow‘s two different pieces made me realize that I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realization. I grew up on his movies, and they have informed me as an artist, and I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward.”

    I wish everyone who worked with Woody Allen started doing this. Like David Krumholtz, or Griffin Newman have done before Gerwig. I get working with the guy and then saying they regret it it’s annoying, but it’s better than ignore the question (Selena Gomez) or continue praising the man despite everything we all know about him (Kate Winslet).

    I’m glad she made a statement. Her answer during the Golden Globes press room was very evasive, but I understand she must have been flustered. Hopefully more people speak out about it, INCLUDING the men who have worked with him. *cough Justin Timberlake *cough

    I am so saddened to read this. Greta always seemed so bright but she allowed herself to be lobotomized by the company she keeps. Even a child could see right through “Woody Allen molestation” story. Mia Farrow is the personification of the devil and an embarrassment to womankind. I am so deeply ashamed to have anything in common with the likes of her even if just sex.
