Marion Cotillard Reveals Whether She Would Work With Woody Allen Again

Marion Cotillard would “question more” before working on another Woody Allen project.

Following Dylan Farrow‘s latest interview regarding the alleged abuse and a slew of actors coming out to express regret for having worked with Woody in the past, the 42-year-old Midnight in Paris star revealed her thoughts about working with the 82-year-old director.

“I don’t think it would ever happen because the experience we had together was very odd. I admire some of his work but we had no connection on set,” she told The Hollywood Reporter.

“I didn’t know much about his personal life, actually. I knew that he had married one of his daughters which I thought, honestly, was weird but I cannot judge something I don’t know. But I have to say if he asked me to today I would question more, I would dig more … I’m very ignorant about this story and I just see that it hurts to see people suffering.”

    She’s right in that she doesn’t know about his family life. He didn’t marry his daughter. Do people just feel they can say anything whether they know it’s true or not?

    “In an interview with NPR last July, he explained his union with Previn thusly:

    I was paternal. She responded to someone paternal. I liked her youth and energy. She deferred to me, and I was happy to give her an enormous amount of decision-making just as a gift and let her take charge of so many things. She flourished. (…)

    From interview with Hollywood Reporter
    Oh, well, one of the great experiences of my life has been my wife. She had a very, very difficult upbringing in Korea: She was an orphan on the streets, living out of trash cans and starving as a 6-year-old. And she was picked up and put in an orphanage. And so I’ve been able to really make her life better. I provided her with enormous opportunities, and she has sparked to them.

    He thoroughly used the fact she had difficult start in life and in exchange for being her provider and protector like a father should, he wanted sex.

    Good lord, you certainly have an odd outlook on life. I see nothing creepy about those statements at all. I am more bothered by his statements that he initially thought it would be a fling before it developed into something more serious. That seemed rather thoughtless to me.

    But Soon-Yi was not a 6 year old orphan when they got together. That was 14 years earlier and she had lived in privilege and luxury since that time and was in college. Lots of men feel the same way about their wives/partners – that they feel somewhat paternal, that they can give them a better life, that they helped them flourish by providing opportunities they missed out on in their earlier years, that they offered a protective relationship away from a troubled upbringing and home. None of this is “creepy”. It’s just part and parcel of why people are together. Do we think it’s creepy when men praise how maternal their wives are to them? No. We don’t.
