Woody Allen Says "I've Done Everything the MeToo Movement Would Love to Achieve"
Published Sep 06, 2019It's a truly nightmarish time for quotes about Woody Allen, and it keeps getting worse. In addition to Scarlett Johansson's recent pro-questionable quotes and subsequent backlash, Woody himself has weighed in with some quotes that will have us rolling our eyes all weekend.
You may recall last year, when Woody unironically said, "I should be the poster boy for the #MeToo movement."
Speaking with France 24 [via the Guardian] before the French premiere of his film A Rainy Day in New York, Woody was asked if he regretted the comment.
"Not at all," he said. "I've worked with hundreds of actresses, not one of them has ever complained about me; not a single complaint. I've employed women in the top capacity for years and we've always paid them the equal of men."
He added, "I've done everything the MeToo movement would love to achieve."
Allen has been under attack in recent years after 1992 allegations that he molested his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow resurfaced. Though Allen has not been charged, he has been renounced by a number of his former collaborators and also lost a lucrative deal with Amazon.
