Woody Allen muse Scarlett Johansson is revealing her opinion on the Dylan Farrow sexual abuse allegations, and one thing she makes clear is that she wants no part of the drama.
The 29-year-old actress told Britain’s Guardian UK newspaper over the weekend that “I think it’s irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on. That just feels irresponsible to me.”
She continued “I think he’ll continue to know what he knows about the situation, and I’m sure the other people involved have their own experience with it. It’s not like this is somebody that’s been prosecuted and found guilty of something, and you can then go, ‘I don’t support this lifestyle or whatever.’ I mean, it’s all guesswork.”
Scarlett – who has starred in three films for Allen including Match Point, Scoop and Vicki Cristina Barcelona - was personally named in Farrow’s open letter accusing the 78-year old of sexually assaulting her when she was a child. “What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson?” Farrow asked in the letter.
The controversy hasn’t had any affect on the pair’s working relationship as Scarlett revealed “I don’t know anything about it. It would be ridiculous for me to make any kind of assumption one way or the other. “
