Scarlett Johansson: I love and believe Woody Allen

Scarlett Johansson: I love and believe Woody Allen

After a swift dose of public backlash regarding the As If article, Johansson released a statement to The Hollywood Reporter saying that her original quotes had been "edited for clickbait." .

However, Johansson, who starred three of Allen's films, said she would work with him again.

Scarlett Johansson is speaking out about her friendship with director Woody Allen after he was accused of child molestation in 2014.

"I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it", Johansson told The Hollywood Reporter. "I have been very direct with him, and he's very direct with me". "I really believe if people actually did vote, our government would look the way it's supposed to, but people just don't vote". She said the current climate is "fired up".

The controversial director has been essentially blacklisted following resurfaced allegations that he sexually abused his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was a child. Johansson continuously proves herself to be privileged and uncaring, and I dread what new hell the Black Widow press tour will bring. It remains unclear why the court documents around Allen's alleged abuse are to be taken with a grain of salt, but James Franco's accuser's allegations are ironclad. This is true. But Allen's behavior towards Dylan Farrow, Soon-Yi Previn, and others points towards a consistent misogyny in his works and a predatory attitude towards women in general.

Johansson said, "I love Woody". The 34-year-old also said she stays in touch with the director, who recently filed a $68 million lawsuit against Amazon Studios for terminating a four-picture deal and scrapping the release of his last movie, A Rainy Day in NY, due to Farrow's claims. These are insane times; one has to analyze the situation and decide how you feel.

Allen, 83, denies the accusations, but some in the movie industry have since distanced themselves from him.

Johansson saw her star power slightly slip in 2017 when both films in which she headlined that year - "Ghost in the Shell" and "Rough Night" - failed to attract either audiences or critical acclaim.
