Women’s March 2018: Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, Scarlett Johansson, and More Take to the Streets
The Women’s March wasn’t a one-time event. People are in the streets across the country and beyond once more today, the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump’s inauguration, with just as much zeal as they showed last year — not least because this year’s gatherings also have the force of the Me Too movement. Here’s what Natalie Portman, Viola Davis, Asia Argento, Scarlett Johansson, and more had to say:

Amazon May Not Release Woody Allen’s Next Film

It’s an understatement, but the last few months haven’t been kind to Woody Allen and my, how time flies. In October, the director’s latest film, “Wonder Wheel,” was met with middling reviews and some mild-to-resentful side eye. Fast forward three months and the political and social #TimesUp and #MeToo groundswell movement has rendered the filmmaker persona non grata and association with the filmmaker is akin to being diagnosed with cancer.

Why Aren’t More Hollywood Men Condemning Woody Allen?

Woody Allen’s name has returned to the news because there is renewed interest in Dylan Farrow’s claim. For those who are unfamiliar with the claim, Dylan Farrow is the daughter of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, who claimed that one day when her mother had headed out shopping, she was sexually assaulted by her father in their attic when she was no more than seven years old. Although Woody Allen was never tried, there were a fair number of people who believed Dylan Farrow’s claim when it was made, not least because of Woody Allen’s inappropriate behavior towards her. However,

Timothée Chalamet’s Contract Doesn’t Actually Prevent Him From Speaking Out Against Woody Allen — Report

Timothée Chalamet’s Contract Doesn’t Actually Prevent Him From Speaking Out Against Woody Allen — Report
Earlier this week, Timothée Chalamet became the latest actor to donate the salary he received for working with Woody Allen, but unlike several others — Greta Gerwig, Colin Firth, Rebecca Hall — he stopped short of criticizing Allen or saying he wouldn’t work with him again. He attributed his silence on the latter subject to “contractual obligations” but, according to the Huffington Post, Chalamet’s contract doesn’t actually prevent him from speaking out.

Joaquin Phoenix In ‘Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot’ [Sundance Review]

Park City – After screening Gus Van Sant’s new film “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot” at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival I came to the not so fresh realization that we may all be taking Joaquin Phoenix for granted. Sure, he gives strange interviews (when he speaks at all) and makes strange career mistakes now and then (such as Woody Allen’s “Irrational Man” for the creative reasons alone), but since 2012’s “The Master” he has basically delivered one acting master class after another.

Chloe Sevigny Says She Would ‘Probably Not’ Work With Woody Allen Again (Exclusive)

Chloe Sevigny Says She Would ‘Probably Not’ Work With Woody Allen Again (Exclusive)
From “Boys Don’t Cry” to “American Psycho,” Chloe Sevigny has had one of the most prolific resumes of character parts in independent movies. In 2004, she appeared in the Woody Allen comedy “Melinda and Melinda.”

During an interview with Variety on Friday afternoon at the Sundance Film Festival, Sevigny expressed reservations about collaborating with the director.

“I have my own turmoil that I’m grappling with over that decision,” Sevigny said. “Would I work with him again? Probably not.”

Sevigny joins a chorus of actors who have either donated their salaries from Allen’s movies to the Time’s Up campaign, including Rebecca Hall and Timothee Chalamet, or expressed regret in agreeing to co-star in one of his projects. In 2014, Allen’s daughter Dylan Farrow published a letter in the New York Times, where she said that she was sexually assaulted by him at the age of 7. (Allen denies any wrongdoing.)

Michael Douglas Accused of Sexual Harassment by Journalist Susan Braudy

Michael Douglas Accused of Sexual Harassment by Journalist Susan Braudy
In an appearance on “The Today Show” Friday morning, journalist and author Susan Braudy says actor Michael Douglas “fondle[d] himself” in front of her without her consent during a work meeting in the 1980s. “He slid down to the floor, unbuckled his belt, and put his hand inside his trousers, and I could see what he was doing,” said Braudy. “Then he began to sort of fondle himself, and I was very scared.”

Braudy said Douglas repeatedly harassed her while she was employed by his company, Stone Bridge Productions. “He thought he was the king of the world, and that he could humiliate me without any repercussions.” She did not go to police at the time, said Braudy, because friends warned her not to speak out against the powerful man at the height of his career.

Earlier this month, Douglas tried to get ahead of the allegation, calling it “a complete lie” and and saying there is “no truth to it whatsoever” in an exclusive interview with Deadline. “I wonder if people realize when you do something like this, it hurts a lot more than just one person,” he added.

Watch Braudy’s first televised interview with NBC News correspondent Kate Snow below.

Marion Cotillard Calls Working With Woody Allen
The day after Dylan Farrow's first television interview aired recounting her alleged abuse at the hands of her father Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris star Marion Cotillard has said that her experience working with Allen was "odd" and she would question working with him again. 

"I didn't know much about his personal life, actually," the Oscar winner told THR at the UniFrance Rendez-vous with French Film event to promote the country's cinema. "I knew that he had married one of his daughters which I thought, honestly, was weird, but I cannot judge something I don't know."

Colin Firth said he won’t appear in any more Woody Allen films, telling The Guardian in a statement: “I wouldn’t work with him again.”

Firth, who starred in Allen’s Magic In The Moonlight in 2014, is the latest actor to turn their back on the controversial 82-year-old filmmaker.

Allen’s adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow accused him of molesting her in an attic when she was seven years-old in a TV interview with CBS yesterday (January 18), prompting the director to deny the claims.

Allen was never charged in relation to the alleged incident and issued a statement denying the allegations.

He said: “The Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity afforded by the Time’s Up movement to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn’t make it any more true today than it was in the past. I never molested

'Time is up for Woody Allen': are Dylan Farrow's allegations finally sticking?

The film-maker has been labeled ‘toxic’ as actors vow never to work with him again – but some diehard fans pledge to continue their support

When Dylan Farrow first shared her public account of sexual assault at the hands of her father Woody Allen, actors ignored her personal pleas for support. It was 2014, and celebrities brushed aside the child molestation allegations as unproven or a private family matter, often deeming it too risky to comment further.

In 2018, it appears the biggest risk is staying silent.

Colin Firth is the latest star to publicly denounce Woody Allen, saying he will never work with the director again.

“I wouldn’t work with him again,” Firth said in a statement late Thursday, according to The Guardian.

Colin Firth Says He Will Not Work With Woody Allen Again Following Dylan Farrow Interview

Colin Firth Says He Will Not Work With Woody Allen Again Following Dylan Farrow Interview
Colin Firth is the latest actor to speak out against filmmaker Woody Allen.

In a statement to the Guardian, Firth, who appeared in Allen’s 2013 film “Magic in the Moonlight,” became the latest actor to declare that he would not work with Allen again. The actor also spoke out against Harvey Weinstein, who was executive producer on Firth’s film “The King’s Speech,” when sexual assault accusations against Weinstein came to light.

Firth’s statement coincides with the first television interview with Dylan Farrow in which she accused her stepfather of molesting her when she was 7 years old. Farrow previously penned an open letter accusing Allen of assault in 2014 and on op-ed piece in 2017 questioning why Allen has been allowed to continue to work in Hollywood and why the #MeToo movement was seemingly overlooking his actions. Allen has always denied the charges.

Woody Allen and Dylan Farrow: Inside the 25-Year Controversy That Divided a Family
It’s been 25 years since Woody Allen was first accused of molesting his daughter Dylan Farrow — an allegation the director has always denied. Now in the wake of the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements, the controversy has ignited yet again.

The allegation first emerged in 1993 during the ugly custody battle between Allen and Mia Farrow, Dylan’s adoptive parents. On Thursday, Dylan, 32, spoke out publicly on television for the first time, and Allen, 82, released a statement saying he “never molested my daughter – as all investigations concluded a quarter of a century ago.” In recent weeks, many actors who have
