Scarlett Johansson says she doesn’t like being dragged into Woody Allen’s family scandal … and has basically told Dylan Farrow to keep her out of her ‘guesswork’ abuse allegations.
As ENTmania! previously reported, Dylan Farrow – Allen’s adopted daughter – called out some actors who have worked with her father in her explosive open letter published in New York Times, writing, ‘What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?’
But Johansson – who has featured in three Woody Allen-directed films Match Point, Scoop, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona – called Farrow’s actions ‘irresponsible.’
‘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,’ the actress told The Guardian.
When asked about her opinion concerning the backlash against Allen, she replied, ‘I’m unaware that there’s been a backlash. 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.’
