Lady Bird’ Director Greta Gerwig Distances Herself from Woody Allen
The indie film queen has spoken about the Woody Allen accusations.
Following accusations of sexual abuse by his adopted daughter, Woody Allen has been in the limelight of Hollywood’s sexual harassment conversation. Following this news, Greta Gerwig does not plan on working with the famed filmmaker again.
In an op-ed posted by The New York Times on Tuesday, the Lady Bird director, and actress pens, “If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film. I have not worked with him again, and I will not work for him again.” This comes after the accusor Dylan Farrow criticized “A-list actors” who worked with him, including Gerwig and Blake Lively, in a Los Angeles Times op-ed last year. Farrow responded soon after to show her appreciation.
Greta, thank you for your voice. Thank you for your words. Please know they are deeply felt and appreciated. https://t.co/q7dV2yAFwH

After first opening up about her sexual abuse allegations in 2013, Allen has relentlessly denied the accusations and has yet to be charged with a sex crime.
