Woody Allen Maintains That He’s a ‘Poster Boy’ For the #MeToo Movement
Woody Allen recently admitted that he doesn’t care that some parts of Hollywood have shunned him over allegations of child molestation, which were made by his daughter Dylan Farrow.
In an interview with France24, he even went so far to say he’s a poster child for the #MeToo movement.
“I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses; not one of them has ever complained about me, not a single complaint,” he said. “I’ve worked with, employed women in the top capacities, in every capacity, for years and we’ve always paid them exactly the equal of men. I’ve done everything that the #MeToo movement would love to achieve with everybody.”
During a 2018 interview, the director called himself a “poster boy” for the #MeToo movement. In the France24 interview, he stood by the statement, saying, “I should be.”
As far as Hollywood’s attempts to cancel his work, “I couldn’t care less.”
“I’ve never worked in Hollywood,” he said. “I’ve always worked in New York, and it doesn’t matter to me for a second. If tomorrow nobody would finance my films and nobody would finance my theater plays or nobody would publish my books, I’d still get up and write because that’s what I do. So I will always work. What happens to it commercially is another matter.”
