Scarlett Johansson defends friendship with Woody Allen: 'I believe him'

Scarlett Johansson and Elizabeth Warren

Johansson, who's starred in three of Allen's films (Match Point, Scoop, Vicky Cristina Barcelona), remains an unapologetic supporter.

At the Women's March in Washington previous year, Johansson spoke about the importance of Planned Parenthood and women's health. Johansson was asked if it was hard to defend Allen under these circumstances, and she answered "I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it".

Johansson, 34, went on: "I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it".

But as the #MeToo movement has gained traction over the last two years, Dylan Farrow's sexual abuse allegations against her father, long a matter of public record, have gained renewed traction among Hollywood celebrities, including Michael Caine, Timothée Chalamet and Greta Gerwig, who have expressed regret at having worked with Allen and publicly distanced themselves from him.

The actor spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about her new roles in "JoJo Rabbit" and "Marriage Story" and was questioned about her stance on the director. It remains unclear why the court documents around Allen's alleged abuse are to be taken with a grain of salt, but James Franco's accuser's allegations are ironclad.

Farrow claims she told her mother, Mia Farrow, that Allen molested her when she was 7 years old. "I love Woody", she says in response to a Hollywood Reporter question about the filmmaker.

"How do I feel about Woody Allen?". I believe him, and I would work with him any time. "I really believe if people actually did vote, our government would look the way it's supposed to, but people just don't vote. I'm a very private person". Selena Gomez, who also appeared in the film, reportedly donated money to Time's Up that an anonymous source told PEOPLE "far exceeded" her earnings from the film. Oh, the thing I'm feeling.

"If the legal situation ever changes, then I'd change my mind", he continued.

Despite all of the headlines, Johansson claimed the two are still able to protect their privacy and enjoy a life in NY with her daughter mostly undisturbed.
