Cate Blanchett on Woody Allen Allegations: 'I Don't Think I've Stayed Silent At All'

Cate Blanchett on Woody Allen Allegations: 'I Don't Think I've Stayed Silent At All'

Cate Blanchett has broken her silence on the allegations against Woody Allen, who she worked with in 2014 for her Oscar winning performance in Blue Jasmine.

“How do you juxtapose being a #MeToo proponent, a Time’s Up proponent, and staying silent on having worked with Woody Allen?,” Cate was asked while making an appearance on Christiane Amanpour’s CNN show this week.

“I don’t think I’ve stayed silent at all. At the time that I worked with Woody Allen, I knew nothing of the allegations. At the time, I said it’s a very painful and complicated situation for the family, which I hope they have the ability to resolve,” Cate said. “If these allegations need to be re-examined which, in my understanding, they’ve been through court, then I’m a big believer in the justice system and setting legal precedents. If the case needs to be reopened, I am absolutely, wholeheartedly in support of that.”

“I feel that these things need to go into court, so if these abuses have happened, the person is prosecuted and so someone who is not in the shiny industry that I am can use that legal precedent to protect themselves,” she continued. “Always, in my industry or any other industry, they’re preyed upon because they’re vulnerable.”

Dylan Farrow recently detailed the allegations against Allen in an interview.

    That’s a whole lot of tap dancing and there’s no way for this to be re opened, because for some very disturbing reason there’s a statue of limitations on sex crimes.

  • Phil the Donahue

    well if the law worked as it should then we wouldn’t need trial by social media.

  • Reilly

    It was public knowledge long before a lot of them worked with him so the ‘I was ignorant’ excuse doesn’t work. They knew and still chose to work with him regardless.

    The law does work…with EVIDENCE…most of the time.

  • Pascal

    Even if the law is not perfect, trial by social media is by far worst: every day, thousands of sheep who know ABSOLUTELY NOTHING about the Woody Allen case flock to Twitter to bleat he’s guilty of abusing Dylan Farrow because he “married his daughter.”

    Soon-Yi Previn was 19 years old, she was not his daughter, adoptive or step, Woody and Mia never married and never lived together et the Supreme Court has confirmed that Allen was never a paternal figure for her.

    Only on social media you can find so many silly people thinking that in USA you can marry your daughter.

    Cate Blanchett is not only a talented and attractive woman, she’s also smart.

  • Pascal

    Dylan Farrow can still bring Woody Allen in Civil Court.

    Woody Allen has been investigated for months by 2 different states (Connecticut and New York) and cleared. And now, Moses Farrow has confirmed the Yale report suggesting that his sister Dylan has been coached by their mother to falsely accuse Woody Allen http://woodyallenmoblynching.com/2018/02/25/moses-farrow-never-believed-that-woody-allen-has-sexually-abused-his-sister-dylan/

    They should know that Woody Allen has been investigated for months by 2 different states
    (Connecticut and New York) and cleared. And now, Moses Farrow has
    confirmed the Yale report suggesting that his sister Dylan has been
    coached by their mother to falsely accuse Woody Allen http://woodyallenmoblynching.com/2018/02/25/moses-farrow-never-believed-that-woody-allen-has-sexually-abused-his-sister-dylan/

  • Reilly

    She was not his biological daughter that’s true but he did say on record he was paternal with her which means he saw her as a daughter. That is why people are disturbed by it.

  • Reilly

    Moses ‘testimony’ isn’t worth anything whether you believe Dylan or not. He only came out with it after he stopped talking to Mia and most would argue he is only saying it because it would hurt her.

  • Pascal

    You really believe “Moses testimony ins’t worth anything” just because you said it? Get some facts or stop to troll and just shut up https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/29/movies/mia-farrow-woody-allen-abuse.html

  • Reilly

    I do know the case very well. Yes there were inconsistencies in her story but an attorney also said there was probable cause to charge him which shows there was something there worth investigating, something reiterated in the link you provided.

    As for Moses, I didn’t say it wasn’t true only that with all the ill will he’s shown against Mia in the past, it could be argued he only said it to get one up on her.

  • Pascal

    No, you don’t know the case at all: you’re just listening gossips and rumors on social media.

    When a prosecutor can prosecute a case, he prosecutes him:

    “Current and former prosecutors said they could not see Mr. Maco’s basis
    for rejecting his own experts. They also questioned why he kept the case
    open until more than six months after the hospital delivered its
    report.”

    You’re contradicting yourself for Moses (“I didn’t say it wasn’t true”, “he only said it to get one up on her”) and just as I said, you know nothing about the case and even didn’t read the link I gave to you, where you can learn that Moses had already doubts in 1992 http://articles.latimes.com/1993-02-02/news/mn-952_1_woody-allen
