Chatting with Periodismo Para Todos (Journalism for All), the filmmaker mused that he needs to be the “poster boy” for #MeToo. Why? As a result of not one of the girls he is labored with over time have accused him of sexual misconduct!
“As I say, I am an enormous advocate of the #MeToo motion. I really feel after they discover individuals who harass harmless ladies and men, it is a good factor that they are exposing them. However you understand I, I needs to be the poster boy for the #MeToo motion. As a result of I’ve labored in motion pictures for 50 years. I’ve labored with tons of of actresses and never a single one — massive ones, well-known ones, ones beginning out — have ever, ever urged any type of impropriety in any respect. I’ve all the time had an exquisite report with them.”

As a result of not like Weinstein or Kevin Spacey, Woody has solely confronted one messy allegation — and he says his daughter Dylan Farrow‘s sexual abuse declare is lengthy prior to now:
“That is one thing that has been completely checked out 25 years in the past by all of the authorities and all people got here to the conclusion that it was unfaithful. And that was the top, and I’ve gone on with my life. For it to return again now, it is a horrible factor to accuse an individual of. I am a person with a household and my very own youngsters. So after all it is upsetting.”
Regardless of his title being thrown within the flames, Woody confirmed he helps the lengthy overdue motion, persevering with:
“I believe in any state of affairs the place anybody is accused of one thing unjustly, it is a unhappy factor. I believe all people would agree with that. Everybody desires justice to be executed. If there’s something just like the #MeToo motion now, you root for them, you need them to convey to justice these horrible harassers, these individuals who do all these horrible issues. And I believe that is a very good factor.”
However what’s not a very good factor, he added, is unfairly being grouped with monsters who’ve been charged with rape and different felony intercourse crimes:
“What bothers me is that I get linked with them. Individuals who have been accused by 20 girls, 50 girls, 100 girls of abuse and abuse and abuse — and I, who was solely accused by one girl in a toddler custody case which was checked out and confirmed to be unfaithful, I get lumped in with these folks.”
All of us really feel so very sorry for him, do not we?
