“I thought, ‘He hates me! He absolutely is regretting his decision.’ But then, I was like, ‘I’m going to prove to this little dude that I can absolutely do this! Maybe I don’t have the demeanor that my character does, but I’ll do it when you f**ing call ‘action,’” she explained.

Kristen added, “That first day, he would come up to me and say things like, ‘You look terrible. You’re supposed to be pretty.’ But it’s not personal, and he’s not trying to offend. If anything, he knows that it’s funny. He’s not the type of person who likes actors who are totally up their own asses and have massive egos. I feel like it was almost a tool for him to go, ‘If they can take it, they’re cool. And if they can’t, then f**k it.’”

FYI: Kristen is wearing a rag & bone blazer and Brunello Cucinelli trousers with an Anne Sisteron necklace.

Woody Allen Responds to Son Ronan Farrow's Sexual Allegations Essay

Woody Allen has responded to his son Ronan Farrow‘s essay about the sexual assault allegations against him, made by Dylan Farrow.

“I never read anything about me, these interviews I do, anything,” the 80-year-old director told Variety. “I said everything I had to say about that whole issue in The New York Times. I have moved so far past it. I never think about it. I work. I said I was never going to comment on it again. I said everything I have to say about it.”

When pressed further, Woody continued, “I never read anything. I never read what you say about me or the reviews of my film. I made the decision I think five years ago never to read a review of my movie. Never read an interview. Never read anything, because you can easily become obsessed with yourself. [It’s] a bad idea to consume yourself with this stuff. You should do your work, not call up and find out how the grosses are, how is the film doing, how are the reviews. Forget about all that. Just work. It’s worked for me. I’ve been very productive over the years by not thinking about myself. I don’t like to hear that a critic thinks my film is a masterpiece and I don’t like to hear that a critic thinks my film misses.”

Blake Lively Slams Rape Joke Made at Woody Allen's Expense at Cannes 2016

Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart pose for a photo together at the Cafe Society press luncheon during the 2016 Cannes Film Festival on Thursday (May 12) in Cannes, France.

The actresses were joined at the event by their co-stars Jesse Eisenberg and Corey Stoll, as well as director Woody Allen. The night before Blake showed off her baby bump in a black dress at the opening night gala dinner, while Kristen chose to show off her toned tummy!

At the lunch, Blake slammed a rape joke that was made at Woody‘s expense during the opening ceremony. The joke was: “It’s very nice that you’ve been shooting so many movies in Europe, even if you are not being convicted for rape in the U.S.,” master of ceremonies Laurent Lafitte said during the opening gala.

“I think any jokes about rape, homophobia or Hitler is not a joke,” Blake told Variety. “I think that was a hard thing [to] swallow in 30 seconds. Film festivals are such a beautiful, respectful festivals of film and artists and to have that, it felt like it wouldn’t have happened if it was in the 1940s. I can’t imagine Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby going out and doing that. It was more disappointing for the artists in the room that someone was going up there making jokes about something that wasn’t funny.”

Blake also said she hadn’t read the piece written by Ronan Farrow about his dad.

“I came home and went to bed at whatever time we finished. I haven’t been in it, so I don’t want to speak on something I haven’t read. I think that’s dangerous. It’s definitely something that being at the festival, the media these days, you come to a film festival about film and people talk about all different types of things. You know? That can be definitely tricky to navigate, I’m sure. I don’t want to speak about something I haven’t read,” Blake said.

FYI: Kristen is wearing a Chanel top, Barri skirt, and Vans shoes at the dinner. She’s in a Cushnie et Ochs dress and Freda Salvador shoes at the luncheon. Blake is wearing a Salvatore Ferragamo dress, Christian Louboutin shoes, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels at the dinner. She’s wearing a Valentino dress and Jimmy Choo shoes at the luncheon.

Kristen Stewart Defends Working With Woody Allen

“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.”
