Haley Atwell Hates Woody Allen Now
Haley Atwell Hates Woody Allen Now

 

In an interview with The Guardian, Haley Atwell answered a question about working with Woody Allen 10 years ago because the interviewer needed to make sure people would click on the article.

You worked with Woody Allen just over a decade ago. How was that experience?
I haven’t spoken about this before. It was my first film and I didn’t feel directed by him at all. I didn’t have any kind of relationship with him. And that was fine but bizarre. It was a great opportunity, so I did the best I could and left. I didn’t know back then what I know now. Would I work with him now? No. And I stand in solidarity with his daughter and offer an apology to her if my contribution to his work has caused her suffering or made her feel dismissed in any way. It’s exciting that I can say this now and I’m not going to be blacklisted.

Then she threw Obi-Wan under the bus.

You’re in the live action Winnie the Pooh film, Christopher Robin, out this summer. Tell us about that…
Ewan McGregor plays Christopher Robin and I’m his wife, Evelyn. Ewan was in the Woody Allen film too, so it was a bit of a reunion.

You guys already now how I feel about people publicly regretting working with Woody Allen instead of regretting to ignore information easily found on Google before cashing their Woody Allen checks, so this post was really just an excuse to post Haley Atwell pics. She has a very nice smile.

Rebecca Hall Hates Woody Allen Now
Rebecca Hall Hates Woody Allen Now

 

In the 90s, Woody Allen started having sex with the Korean orphan he and Mia Farrow adopted when she was 8. There’s also an entire Wikipedia page called, “Woody Allen sexual assault allegations”. But despite all this, in 2008, Rebecca Hall was in Woody Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona. In 2018, Rebecca Hall will be seen in Woody Allen’s A Rainy Day in New York. But before this movie comes out, Hollywood really fucked up Hall’s chance to be in a third Woody Allen movie, because Hollywood has to pretend they hate Woody Allen now.

 

The day after the Weinstein accusation broke in full force I was shooting a day of work on Woody Allen’s latest movie in New York. I couldn’t have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day. When asked to do so, some seven months ago, I quickly said yes. He gave me one of my first significant roles in film for which I have always been grateful, it was one day in my hometown – easy. I have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this. In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened. After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow’s statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones – I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry. I regret this decision and wouldn’t make the same one today. It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to @timesup. I’ve also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere. #timesup

Ah, I see. Rebecca Hall is sorry for working with Woody Allen after “re-reading” some things she already knew. She totally would have come to this decision on her own with no external pressure, I bet. Totally. Actors apologizing for working with Woody Allen is being called “a movement” now. I have to say, “I apologize for working with a director who I knew was a piece of shit before I worked with him and I’m also donating my salary so I’m not in a think piece and look like I care after the fact” is my new favorite thing. Shout out to performative allyship.

 

This first picture in this gallery is Rebecca Hall sharing a nice moment with Woody Allen and his child bride. Very sweet.

Greta Gerwig Regrets Working With Woody Allen Now LOL Okay
Greta Gerwig Regrets Working With Woody Allen Now LOL Okay

 

Lady Bird writer/director Greta Gerwig was in Woody Allen’s 2012 film, To Rome With Love. She also wore all black to Sunday’s Golden Globes, because protecting women from sexual predators was an important fashion statement that night. So naturally, after she accepted the Best Picture – Musical or Comedy award, she was asked if she regretted working with Allen. Gerwig responded with “WELL MAN LEMME TELL YA” then jumped through a wall like a cartoon character and ran away. Since then, she must have read the ONLINE BACKLASH so in an interview with The New York Times yesterday, she finally found the strength to speak up.

I would like to speak specifically to the Woody Allen question, which I have been asked about a couple of times recently, as I worked for him on a film that came out in 2012. It is something that I take very seriously and have been thinking deeply about, and it has taken me time to gather my thoughts and say what I mean to say. I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film. I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again. Dylan Farrow’s two different pieces made me realize that I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realization. I grew up on his movies, and they have informed me as an artist, and I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward.

I totally understand Gerwig here. If Gerwig had known what Woody had done in the 90s, she never would have agreed to work with her idol in 2012 even though what Woody Allen did in the 90s was common knowledge and easily available on the Internet prior to her agreeing to being in the film. She was 29 in 2012, so she probably didn’t know how to do a Google Search. I’m sure she does now, so maybe today she can look up “classic white woman victimhood”.

Selena Gomez Is Doing Woody Allen
Selena Gomez Is Doing Woody Allen

 

I don’t think Selena Gomez‘s friend gave up a kidney so she could do a Woody Allen movie, yet here we are. Woody Allen makes movies that only a specific type of white people will like, and he also likes to have sex with young brown chicks he adopts. Hopefully Selena’s character doesn’t get adopted in this movie. I want to her she looks adorable.

Blake Lively Really Doesn’t Appreciate You Making Woody Allen Rape Jokes
Blake Lively Really Doesn’t Appreciate You Making Woody Allen Rape Jokes


Blake Lively has fifth billing in Woody Allen‘s new film, Café Society, and it was selected to open the The 69th Cannes Film Festival. And as soon as that shit kicked off, host Laurent Lafitte yanked Allen’s soul out of his chest with a rape joke. Again, Blake Lively is in this movie. And when you do a Woody Allen movie, you’re gonna have microphones in your face and people tweeting at you a lot. So she talked to Variety

“I think any jokes about rape, homophobia or Hitler is not a joke,” Lively said on Thursday when asked about the incident by a Variety reporter. “I think that was a hard thing 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.”…“But it wasn’t just Woody,” Lively said of the material. “He made three homophobic comments in a row. A Hitler joke. And a rape joke. It was all within 30 seconds … What on Earth was happening? It was really confusing.”

Honestly, who is out here hiring Blake Lively? Before this she made a shark movie and had some sort of blog apparently only her friends read. Now she’s at Cannes. Like, what do you want her to say? We can all agree with Ronan Farrow all day, but we’d all also probably agree with  Kristen Stewart. Because when was the last time you sacrificed your work promotion over something bad that happened to somebody you didn’t know? And that’s why the world sucks most of the time. Nobody gives a shit about something except the people the something happened to. And if this doesn’t apply to you, your Facebook posts aren’t changing any minds. Sorry. Sad to say. Jesus, the woman was writing a blog. Can she live?


Also, dude.

“I never read anything about me,” Allen said. “These interviews I do, anything. 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. It’s worked for me. I’ve been very productive over the years by not thinking about myself. “I’ve said I was never going to comment on it again,” he added. “I could go on endlessly – then we’d just be going on endlessly. I’ve said everything I’ve had to say about it.”

Kinda hard to tell if Woody Allen truly believes he didn’t do anything wrong or isn’t convinced of your ability to prove it, huh? If I was making a movie, I’d cast him as a villain. You can’t buy that an acting class.
