The Growing List of Stars Who Won’t Work with Woody Allen Again

Some people might remember Dylan Farrow, who is the daughter of Woody Allen who accused him of having sexually abused him when she was 7 years old while her mother was out shopping. Her claim was investigated but no charges were ever filed against her father, which is why he managed to continue having a career in the entertainment industries afterwards. However, the continuing exposure of sexual misconduct in the entertainment industries and beyond has resulted in renewed interest in her story. In fact, there is so much interest that it seems that there will be consequences for her father’s career at last, even though it has been years and years since she made her statement.

Who Are Some of the People Who Have Spoken Out So Far?

Simply put, more and more of the people who have worked with Allen in the past are now voicing much the same sentiments. For example, women such as Rachel Brosnahan, Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall, Ellen Page, and Mira Sorvino are offering their support to someone who was hurt, while also taking the chance to bring up their regret at having worked with someone accused of sexually abusing their own daughter. Likewise, men such as Timothee Chalamet, David Krumholtz, and Griffin Newman have uttered similar sentiments, though it is interesting to note that the number of men who have spoken out seems to be smaller than the number of women who have made the same choice. More recently, Colin Firth has made his thoughts on the matter known as well, which can be summed up as him refusing to work with the man being accused ever again in the future based on what he now knows about him.

Besides voicing such sentiments, it should be mentioned that some of these people have taken a further step as well. Both Chalamet and Newman have made a choice to give the earnings from the projects that they regret participating in to a number of charities that focus on helping out the victims of sexual abuse, which is something that other people have chosen as well.

With that said, there are also people who have chosen to go against the general direction of things by speaking up in support of the man being accused. The single best-known example is Alec Baldwin, who believes that he is being treated in an unfair manner because charges were never filed against him. However, it is clear that the number of these individuals are much smaller than their counterparts, which speaks volumes about the general nature of the sentiments on the whole matter.

Further Considerations

At this point, it seems probable that the statement will finally have a long-lasting impact on the man’s career. In part, this will be because of the moral outrage that has re-erupted in recent times. However, it should also be noted that there will be a lot of people who want to avoid working with him because of concerns of how that would reflect on their own reputations. This is particularly true because the concern over widespread sexual misconduct in such a wide range of industries shows no signs of losing momentum, meaning that hopefully, it will continue to hold the public’s attention for the foreseeable future.
