Actress Kate Winslet is slamming the film industry for its support of Woody Allen and Roman Polanski, both of whom have been accused of engaging in sexual misconduct with minors. She also expressed regret for working with both men in the past, starring in Allen’s 2017 film “Wonder Wheel” and Polanski’s 2011 comedy/drama “Carnage.”
“It’s like, what the f— was I doing working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski? It’s unbelievable to me now how those men were held in such high regard, so widely in the film industry and for as long as they were. It’s f–king disgraceful,” she said during her interview with Vanity Fair ahead of the “Ammonite” premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
She went on to add, “I have to take responsibility for the fact that I worked with them both. I can’t turn back the clock. I’m grappling with those regrets, but what do we have if we aren’t able to just be f—ing truthful about all of it?”
Polanski was convicted of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, while Allen was accused of sexual abuse by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, who accused him of molesting her when she was just seven years old.
