Greta Gerwig walked home with the Golden Globe for Best Comedy/Musical for Lady Bird on Sunday night – a fantastic achievement for her directorial debut.
However, the 34-year-old actress turned director revealed that she isn’t proud of all of her achievements, in particular her working history with Woody Allen…
Greta Gerwig worked with Woody Allen in his 2012 movie To Rome With Love, but has since revealed that it’s one of her biggest professional regrets.
When asked whether she thinks people who have been accused of sexual misconduct will or should work again, Greta had some very interesting answers…
“I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film,” she reportedly told The New York Times.
“I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film”
As most actresses who have worked with Woody Allen know, the alleged sexual assault of his then seven-year-old adopted daughter Dylan Farrow is always something that’s going to be brought up by the press and the public.
Remember a few months ago when Selena Gomez faced enormous criticism for choosing to work with the director?
“Dylan Farrow’s two different pieces made me realise that I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realisation,” Greta Gerwig continued.
“I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward.”
“I grew up on his movies, and they have informed me as an artist, and I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward.”
The director has never been found guilty of child sex abuse, but it doesn’t look like he will fully be able to shake his reputation.
