Greta Gerwig says she won't work for Woody Allen again

Greta Gerwig says she won't work for Woody Allen again

Following the session, Sorvino briefly told the press that ever since directors Peter Jackson and Terry Zwigoff came out with their apologies about not considering Sorvino for roles per Weinstein's resistance, that "since those allegations or revelations there seems to be a lot of goodwill toward me in the entertainment business and I'm getting offers".

Sorvino explained that she looked past Dylan's story because she didn't want it to be true, but eventually she came to believe and support Dylan.

Actress Mira Sorvino joined a list of actresses who regret working with director Woody Allen.

Dylan Farrow responded to Sorvino on Twitter on Thursday morning, writing that her letter was "beautiful", and she was "overwhelmed". Her To Rome With Love costar Ellen Page, The Tick actor Griffin Newman and The Deuce actor David Krumholtz have also recently distanced themselves from the work they've done with Allen. In it, she says she believes Farrow's claims about Allen's alleged abuse.

"I'm sorry, Dylan! I can't even imagine how you felt all se years while seeing how everyone - including myself and countless Hollywood personalities - praised again and again who you had accused of hurting you as a child, "Sorvino continues in missive". I can not begin to imagine how you have felt, all these years as you watched someone you called out as having hurt you as a child, a vulnerable little girl in his care, be lauded again and again, including by me and countless others in Hollywood who praised him and ignored you.

In the past year, Sorvino spoke to journalist Ronan Farrow, Dylan's brother, on the record about her experience being sexually harassed by Harvey Weinstein. The female-led story of a young woman (played by Saoirse Ronan) and her turbulent relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf) has emerged supreme at the 75th Golden Globes, bagging a Best Actress trophy for its lead star.

Mira Sorvino has been cautious about when and how she's spoken up about Hollywood's sexual harassment issue.

"I was reached out to, as you know, publicly by Peter Jackson and by Terry Zwigoff, which was very courageous of them both".

"I am so sorry, Dylan!" the actress wrote. "This letter is handsome and I will carry your words with me", Farrow wrote. "If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film. I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again", she said.

Earlier this week, Greta Gerwig also expressed her regret about working with Woody Allen, saying that while she "cannot change" having worked with Allen in the past, she "can make different decisions moving forward".

She tweeted in response: "Greta, thank you for your voice".

Numerous women who have been asked about their participation in Alen's movies have skirted the issue, giving some variation of "Well, I only know him as an artist" or "I can't speak personally to the accusations because I wasn't there".
