Kate Winslet Has Some ‘Bitter Regrets’ About Working With THIS Man In Hollywood
She made a statement at the London Critics' Circle Film Awards on Sunday.
Actress Kate Winslet seems to have addressed the allegations against her Wonder Wheel director Woody Allen.
Winslet has received backlash in the past for not addressing the allegations against her colleague for sexually abusing his daughter Dylan Farrow. Earlier this awards season, the actress told the New York Times that she couldn’t address the allegations as she didn’t know “whether any of it is true or false”.
However, while accepting an award at the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards yesterday, Winslet finally spoke out about working with abusers in the past. She said: “I wouldn’t be able to stand here this evening and keep to myself some bitter regrets that I have at poor decisions to work with individuals with whom I wish I had not.
“It has become clear to me that by not saying anything, I might be adding to the anguish of many courageous women and men. Sexual abuse is a crime. While it rests with the rule of law to pass judgement, it lies with all of us to listen to the smallest of voices and to never stop listening. Also those who do have a voice are becoming afraid to say anything because of intense scrutiny and criticism. Nobody should be exempt from having a right to speak in support of vulnerable people…”
Although she didn’t address Allen by name, fans have assumed the “individuals” she’s referring to include the infamous actor/director.
