Cate Blanchett Speaks Out On Woody Allen Allegations: “I Don’t Think I’ve Stayed Silent At All”
Cate Blanchett is the latest actor to speak out about allegations aimed at Woody Allen, telling CNN she didn’t know about the claim of abuse leveled at the filmmaker when they worked together. Blanchett, who won a best actress Oscar for her role in Allen’s 2013 drama Blue Jasmine, was asked during the network’s Amanpour show how she could marry being a #MeToo supporter with “staying silent” about working with the director. The actress replied, “I don’t think I’ve stayed silent at all. At the time that I worked with Woody Allen, I knew nothing of the allegations. At the time, I said it’s a very painful and complicated situation for the family, which I hope they have the ability to resolve.”
Dylan Farrow, Allen’s daughter, has accused him of molesting her when she was a child. Allen denies the claim. Despite a state attorney saying he had “probable cause” to prosecute, the director was never put on trial. – Source
