Times have been tough for Woody Allen. I mean when your adopted daughter accuses you of sexual assault during her childhood days, it’s not a pretty scene at all. And Scarlett Johansson ran into troubled waters herself by supporting Allen. For her, the Manhattan director just couldn’t do such heinous acts. Scarlett released a statement earlier:
I believe him, and I would work with him anytime. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him.
Scarlett and Woody go a long way back and share a definite rapport. The duo has worked together in not one, not two but three films together – Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and Scoop. So, we get where Scarlett is coming from but the Internet stands against Scarlett on the matter. Check out some tweets:
And, now the adopted daughter of Woody too has slammed Johansson for her stand. She has said:
Because if we’ve learned anything from the past two years it’s that you definitely should believe male predators who ‘maintain their innocence’ without question. Scarlett has a long way to go in understanding the issue she claims to champion.
Well, we hope the truth surfaces soon and whoever is guilty, even if it’s such a renowned name in film-making, may get the punishment they deserve.
