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.”

Ronan Farrow Calls Out Kristen Stewart & Many Others for Collaborating with His Dad Woody Allen

Ronan Farrow, the son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, has written a column for THR with regards to victims of sexual abuse and the media’s blind eye — and in it, calls out various celebrities for working with his dad, despite the allegations against him.

Back in 2014, Ronan‘s sister Dylan came forward and revealed Woody had allegedly abused her sexually when she was a child. Ronan addresses the abuse in the piece, and calls out those who collaborate with Woody while turning a blind-eye.

“But the old-school media’s slow evolution has helped to create a culture of impunity and silence. Amazon paid millions to work with Woody Allen, bankrolling a new series and film. Actors, including some I admire greatly, continue to line up to star in his movies. ‘It’s not personal,; one once told me. But it hurts my sister every time one of her heroes like Louis C.K., or a star her age, like Miley Cyrus, works with Woody Allen. Personal is exactly what it is — for my sister, and for women everywhere with allegations of sexual assault that have never been vindicated by a conviction,” Ronan wrote. “Tonight, the Cannes Film Festival kicks off with a new Woody Allen film. There will be press conferences and a red-carpet walk by my father and his wife (my sister). He’ll have his stars at his side — Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Jesse Eisenberg. They can trust that the press won’t ask them the tough questions. It’s not the time, it’s not the place, it’s just not done.

“We are witnessing a sea change in how we talk about sexual assault and abuse. But there is more work to do to build a culture where women like my sister are no longer treated as if they are invisible. It’s time to ask some hard questions,” he continued. Read Ronan‘s entire piece over at THR.
