The whole Hollywood is after Woody Allen when he was in the spotlight of the allegations about the #Metoo movement, facing setbacks, and Hollywood stars too maintained distance from him! On the other hand, Scarlett Johansson admits that she feels that Woods is innocent and retains the fact that she will remain sticking by his side.
“I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it,” she explained. “I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him.”
The 83-year-old director Allen has directed Johansson in movies like, “Match Point,” “Scoop” and “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”. Scarlett says that she loves him and she will continue to work with him under any circumstances.
She also admits, that she knows it is very difficult for her to support Allen when all the fingers are at him and there is no other supporter too. Given the socio-political scenario in Hollywood, she finds it difficult to keep on supporting Allen. But she still urges to support and stick to him because she thinks Allen is innocent.
She said, “It’s hard because it’s a time where people are very fired up, and understandably, things needed to be stirred up, and so people have a lot of passion and a lot of strong feelings and are angry, and rightfully so. It’s an intense time.”
The 34-year-old actress said that she would not be hesitated to work again with Allen, who has been recently accused by estranged daughter Dylan Farrow of sexual abuse. After the abuse came under the light and the whole Hollywood started cornering him except Scarlett.
