Blake Lively: It’s a ‘very dangerous thing’ to joke about Woody Allen’s ‘personal life’

FFN_LIvely_Blake_INI_071216_52119187

Much like Kristen Stewart’s weighted energy, Blake Lively is in New York to promote Woody Allen’s new film, Café Society, this week. These are photos of Blake out and about on Tuesday. Her dress is Jonathan Simkhai and I dislike it. How do I put this delicately? I want to get the wording right, so let me tread carefully. I think Blake Lively is a pretty woman and I think she honestly gets more beautiful when she’s pregnant. She “carries well” and she’s so tall and leggy that she can wear nearly anything, pregnant or not. But this dress is bad because of the nude/beige strip under her bust. If you just passed her on street, or you weren’t looking closely, you might think (as I first thought) that the fabric strip was just netting, and that Blake had a fat roll hanging out of a faux crop top. Indelicate, I know. But that beigey strip is just awful.

Meanwhile, Blake has a new interview with USA Today. She’s still talking about how Woody Allen is amazing. Seriously. She even talks about that “rape joke” at the Cannes Film Festival opening ceremony. Some highlights:

Her Cannes Film Festival fashion show: “It’s funny, I didn’t realize I was dressing like a Disney princess until people told me… I remember going to Disneyland as a kid and thinking, ‘Ah, I want to do that one day.’ You get to live out a bit of your childhood fantasies when you wear a ball gown like that.”

How she signed onto Café Society:
“I didn’t know anything about the movie. It didn’t matter. It was being part of a film with an iconic filmmaker and somebody that writes complicated women.”

The “joke” about Woody Allen at the Cannes opening ceremony: “That was very strange, to have people joking about such sensitive things. To speak to anyone’s personal life is a very, very dangerous thing.”

How she & Ryan Reynolds parent baby James: “We’ve both given up projects that we really love because we can’t keep our family together. People often think their career is something they have to chase and maintain, but for us, we said, ‘Let’s always chase and maintain our personal life.’ This is a career that’s like the stock market: You’ve got to stay hot while you’re hot. But your family, that’s the real thing that gives you security and success and happiness.”

Her upcoming movies: “I hope that people like these movies, and I get to continue doing what I love. If not, I’ll just eat dessert all day, apparently.”

[From USA Today]

“To speak to anyone’s personal life is a very, very dangerous thing…” Well, let’s unpack that a little bit. Ronan Farrow specifically published his THR op-ed ahead of the Cannes Film Festival so people would talk about it. So people would talk about how Dylan Farrow still says, to this day, that Woody Allen abused her. Child abuse, sexual abuse, assault, these are not subjects that should be taboo, these are not subjects that should be ignored or shrugged off as merely an aspect of someone’s “personal life.” If Blake wants to say “I really don’t know what happened between Woody and Dylan so I don’t feel comfortable speaking about it,” that’s one thing. But Blake is making a blanket statement – probably in an attempt to be vague and inoffensive – that actually comes off worse than a “no comment.”

PS… Her purse is by Christian Louboutin and it’s adorned with “charms.” Hideous.

    Who the hell keeps asking this little dingbat questions?

      Wish she’d shut up already. Sick of hearing her defending Allen. She doesn’t even know whta she’s talking about.

    • lisa says:

      she just wont stop doubling down on her woody allen love, i can’t stand her

      • holly hobby says:

        Yup, so Blake, will you let James sit on Uncle Pervert’s lap? Exactly!

      • fee says:

        Desperate to get an award n he’s her ticket. This charges against Woody are real, there are documents showing the truth n it is disgusting. It breaks my heart that people can still allow this man to work n Polanski too. Corey Haim was abused as a kid, Hollywood it has always protected these pedophiles. Blake let him watch your kid alone n see how fast you’d allow it.

    • Alex says:

      I thought we agreed after Cannes she wasn’t allowed to talk

    • Megan says:

      Not talking about Woody Allen’s personal life is what is dangerous. The man is a pedophile and should never be left alone with children. Everyone he comes in contact with needs to know that.

    • Kiliki says:

      Terrible intuition.

      Terrible integrity.

      Terrible karma.

  2. Sam says:

    Ryan, come get your wife and take her someplace far away.

    • Jenns says:

      Like back to Taylor Swift’s porch.

    • Cure says:

      He must have a thing for Woody Allen supporters beacuse his first wife says similar things.

    • Kim says:

      Two thumbs up to your comment, Sam. The charges against Woody and subsequent statements by Ronan are enough for me to question anyone that would support this man. I cannot stand to even read Woody Allen statements because he’s just that vile and disgusting. Anyone who who defends him, well, I put them in that category too!

  3. Jenns says:

    Are people joking about it?

    Child rape is a serious accusation and I don’t see anyone making any jokes.

    • Erinn says:

      I feel like there was a joke at an award show of some sort and that she might have commented afterwards saying that it wasn’t right to joke about… this would have been at least a couple months ago, though.

    • HH says:

      While that comedian at CFF made a joke, it was one of those “shade” jokes. As in, he was doing a routine and couldn’t directly call Woody out in a serious fashion, but crafted soemthing that didn’t let Woody off the hook.

      Also, what is it with people wanting to separate personal from professional with such serious allegations? That’s been the defense of Allen, Cosby, Polanski, R.Kelly, etc. I’ve heard so many people say that they aren’t concerned with their personal lives, just they just want to enjoy the movies/music. We’re not talking someone’s latest breakup. Sexual assault? Domestic Violence? Child abuse? ETC…. With such serious allegations, you should absolutely be concerned with who you are supporting!!!

      • lucy2 says:

        Yeah, I thought it was more a pointed slam than a “joke”. But I’m not surprised she doesn’t get it.

        I can separate someone from their work if I don’t care for their politics, they say stupid things, they’re kind of annoying or pretentious, etc. But once you cross the line into child molestation and rape, sorry, no separation there.

    • MC2 says:

      I agree with HH. There are jokes that are there to make people laugh and then there are ‘jokes’ about the absurdity of life. This was one of those ‘jokes’ and it was really brilliant actually. I love that it put Polanski & Allen in the same boat. Here is the joke….

      “It’s very nice that you’ve been shooting so many movies in Europe, even if you are not being convicted for rape in the U.S.,”

      • Imqrious2 says:

        And the camera pan straight to WA was priceless! Would Blake let Woody babysit for her during this junket? Yeah, didn’t think so…

        #keepthespotlightonabusers

      • Bex says:

        The comedian actually came out afterwards and said that it was in fact a joke about ‘American puritanism’ which had me like ???

      • dotdotdot says:

        That was doing ‘rape jokes’ right: Don’t ridicule the victim(s), drag the raipist(s)!

      • MC2 says:

        @Bex: Wow. Well, I still stand that I like the joke even if the person telling it was an idiot. That made me face palm. If ‘puritanism’ is holding a rapist accountable then I am all for it!

  4. QQ says:

    Ya’ll gonna learn one day about continuing to ask this one questions not related to securing representation and generating press when one is not super up there in the talent front… NOT TODAY THO, APPARENTLY!

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      #askherless

      I’ll make an exception for the sex offenders in the industry. Keep asking these morons. Ask them for as long as it takes everyone to realize that the press tour won’t be worth it.

  5. A says:

    Dangerous indeed. So much she would rather stand by an abuser than not have that moment in the spot light.
    And that thing below her bust IS a fatroll.

    • MrsBPitt says:

      But, but, he is an iconic filmmaker, so who cares if he is a child molester!!!!! (eyes rolling out of head)!

      • saras says:

        She is dumb since she also fetishized old southern plantation living with her now defunct lifestyle brand. Hello Blake, slaves!?! Now pedos!?! She sucks!

  6. toni says:

    Well BlakeNotSoLively, it’s very dangerous leaving little girls alone with Woody Allen.

    • Who ARE these people? says:

      Thank you for cutting to the chase.

    • Babalon says:

      I see you beat me to it.

      *raises glass*

    • bcgirl says:

      * clink! *

    • dotdotdot says:

      Also not-talking about child molesters / rapists being rapists and keeping it a secret is one of the things that enable rapists to continue their grooming and abusing.

      • MC2 says:

        If Blake had him babysit and THEN found out about the allegations…….what the hell would she say then?!

        Dylan and her entire family speaking up has, I am sure, saved one little girl or at least paved the road for when his daughters with his current wife speak out someday. It hurts my heart every time I see a pic of them. Blake, and others, have benefited from this story coming out- they hold their daughters a closer to them when Woody is around.

        I can’t stand this “why didn’t they come forward sooner?” and “don’t talk about it”. It’s maddening.

  7. Bishg says:

    Doesn’t she have a publicist urging her to STFU?

  8. Jeo says:

    Hasn’t she been signed on for another of the disgusting guy’s films? This stupid woman can’t get enough of Woody Allen.

  9. Tate says:

    She is awful. I have got to stop clicking on stories about her.

  10. Nancy says:

    Not speaking about this man’s “personal” life is a much more dangerous, dangerous thing lady. I like the dress a lot, but not as a maternity outfit. Taylor/Blake…..which one is more conducive to the start of a migraine. Tie

  11. HK9 says:

    Blake, shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

  12. Roxane says:

    Shut Up. Now.

  13. kennedy says:

    I seriously wonder HOW this woman became an A- lister. She is the opposite of talented (I watched both Age of Adaline and The Shallows recently and I STILL don’t get it. She’s not the worst actress there is but she seriously lacks depth and/or believability as a character in both films. Anything that requires nuance is laughably bad in her hands!), mumbles and giggles with EVERY character, and is just as beautiful as every other beautiful, vanilla mocktress in Hollywood. Does she seriously have THAT amazing of a PR team? Does anyone else remember how when Leo and her broke up they issued a statement about the end of their relationship — something that he didn’t even do with his LONG TERM girlfriend, Bar Refaeli., after they ended their 6+ relationship? Dude was game to issue a statement at the end of a 5 month (or less) relationship! As Lainey said, HOW DOES SHE DO THAT?!!!

    • Lee says:

      I couldnt agree more! I’d say she really has an amazing PR team.
      Watched her today at Live with Kelly. Kelly’s co host was kissing her feet so much, saying that when she (Blake) appeared on screen in Cafè Society she enlighted the whole movie….that made me cringe!!

      • Lou says:

        Have you seen the movie? Because that is exactly what some of the French film critics said. Guys, are we OK with acknowledging that not everybody has the same taste and what is poison to one is food to another? She was generally praised by critics generally for Adaline and The Shallows, and if people keep asking her about Woody (as a movie director) she says what she thinks without being vague or non-committal, which shows a sizeable pair of ovaries. If gossip sites keep bringing this thing up it is not her fault. She does not want to dwell on personal matters, which is perfectly acceptable. Should she throw the first (actually, the umpteenth) stone? She would be torn to pieces for being ignorant and judgemental. I have not seen all this indignation for JPhoenix, CFirth, EStone, CBlanchett, KStewart, SJohansson, etc. The whole of Hollywood, practically. How come nobody asks them (the men in particular) what they think? Oh, OK, I see the point. They have the ‘talented’ seal. Come on, let’s call it day.

    • ann says:

      The answer is in your question. PR.
      It’s as simple as that, even the how did she do that!11!? Was PR. It was so obvious throughout that “relationship”.

    • MC2 says:

      I don’t know if she is an A-lister? I think of her as a B-listed her hangs around the A’s. I was surprised when Woody cast her but maybe he knew she would be an idiot and run her mouth trying to kiss his a$$. Maybe Kristen’s publicists made him cast Blake so that everyone would focus on her and forget Kristen was in the movie too (I see you back there, you smart, sneaky bit#%)?

      She needs to hustle and she knows it. Her fame is mostly luck & good looks. She reminds me of Mischa Barton (who I think had more talent)- they were on hit teen shows and got a huge following but won’t last.

      I think Blake knows this which is why she talks about striking while it’s hot. She needs everything now because I don’t think she has the talent to carry her into a long career.

    • Aren says:

      I believe her family has money. Plus, she likes sending nudes to her co-stars, and I’m sure that’s just a part of her promoting skills.

  14. KHLBHL says:

    Blake is the perfect example of this.

    “The halo effect is a cognitive bias in which an observer’s overall impression of a person influences the observer’s feelings and thoughts about that person’s character or personality. A person’s physical attractiveness has been proven to produce a halo effect.”

    Let’s stop thinking Blake is beautiful and harmless. Maybe not on this site (which I’m so happy about), but in general, wherever you go on the Internet (I’m looking at you – Buzzfeed), people call her “beautiful” and “sweet” and “classy”. No.

    She represents the insidious, more pervasive kind of sexism and misogyny. She is damaging our progress against rape culture, she is an enabler, she is an active participant in turning a blind eye, and most importantly – she is hurting Dylan Farrow, the actual survivor of Woody Allen’s abuse and subsequent injustices. And Blake further shields herself from criticism by playing stupid, and we believe her. We believe her to be silly and ignorant, but that’s not a good excuse.

    • Erinn says:

      It really frustrates me. I want her to not say stupid things. I want to like her… but every time I start to warm up to her, she opens her mouth on topics like these and it ruins it. I think… a lot of the things she says really aren’t her trying to be a jerk. I think she genuinely doesn’t understand the backlash she gets and really doesn’t have bad intentions… but she’s not doing anything to … not come off as a jerk? If that makes sense.

      I don’t think she’s got terrible intentions or anything, I more or less think she’s kind of stupid when it comes down to it. It doesn’t fix it … but I do think intentions count for a LITTLE bit.

    • Aren says:

      I agree and have said it before. That she’s willing to defend a child molester only to get an acting role is disgusting and should be a crime in itself.

  15. CornyBlue says:

    Wearing actual stilettos during pregnancy seems like such a painful thing. Like my feet hurt from wearing stilettos and I am not even pregnant.

  16. Tessa says:

    I wonder if woody will be baby sitting her kids?

  17. detritus says:

    I wonder if she will change her opinion when James becomes old enough to hang out with Uncle Woody.
    I hope she does and keeps that child far away from that baby-grooming, self-absorbed creep.

    On a lighter note – the dress looks better from different angles. The cut is not doing her any favors though, and the beige roll isn’t good.

    • LaraK says:

      This.
      Every time I hear one of these actresses defend Woody, I wonder if they would leave their daughters alone with him.
      I for one would not let my daughter anywhere near him or one of his movies. The guy is beyond creepy.

      • MC2 says:

        I said above but what really burns me is that Blake benefits from Dylan speaking out by knowing & being able to protect her daughter from Woody. Then she tells her to shut up.

  18. turtle says:

    I just want to look at Blake Lively pregnant forever.

    That is all.

    • tmot says:

      Not in that dress! It manages to be both dowdy and vulgar at the same time. And it is too tight besides.

      • RedWeatherTiger says:

        Yes, it’s the tightness that is the worst. I can see not wanting to hide one’s “bump” in a tent, but zipping oneself into a pastel tourniquet so that it is not only uncomfortable to wear (if she’s anything like I was when pregnant) but uncomfortable to look at is not the answer.

  19. my3cents says:

    It’s a dangerous thing to NOT be speaking about these issues.
    Go back to the 50s Blake, you’ll feel at home.

  20. KatMC says:

    She definitely isn’t attaining a Mensa membership any time soon.

  21. Bridget says:

    Just stop talking, Blake.

  22. toni says:

    This woman romantized Antebellum South on that website of hers. What do you expect?

  23. The Eternal Side-Eye says:

    She’s starting to become creepy to me honestly.

    I think we all know she’s making a deliberate choice to ignore the abuse in order to pad her career but damn if she’s not the MOST vocal about it. In her mind there’s a little mantra in permanent loop that goes, “it’s okay as long as you get more successful”. It’s starting to feel like the lights are on and the inside looks fabulous but it’s totally empty.

    She’s an automaton. Smile and pose and don’t ask her processor to compute anything harder than how much she adores the molester.

    • HH says:

      “I think we all know she’s making a deliberate choice to ignore the abuse in order to pad her career but damn if she’s not the MOST vocal about it.”>>> RIGHT?! Who’s putting her up to this? Woody? Because I know her publicist is doing a serious facepalm.

      • Goldie says:

        I think she[s just desperately trying to suck up to him. She reportedly has a fairly small role in ‘Cafe Society.’ Maybe she’s hoping that if she keeps defending him, he’ll make her his new muse and give her a bigger role in his next film.

    • teacakes says:

      Exactly.

      And even with all this trick is doing, you STILL have people trying to excuse her because she’s “harmless” and “not very bright” and “where is the disdain for Blanchett, Kstew, Scarjo and others, why is Blake being singled out?”

      Well, guess what, defending child molesters and choosing to work with them after the fact is known is bad enough, but all of WA’s high-profile stars have been DRAGGED for it, and none of them made the mistake of REPEATEDLY trying to defend him or declare the subject taboo. But Flake here keeps doing the most, even Kstew (her costar in this movie) and Scarjo knew to shut up after they made their initial gaffes.

  24. MarineTheMachine says:

    Rolled my eyes about the part where she says Woody writes complicated women characters. I don’t need to see the movie to know that HER part must be the opposite of complicated. Just the trailer presents her as a walking stereotype, wich she really becomes to be it seems.

  25. Marty says:

    It’s comments like this, and the one that Kristen Stewart made, that piss me the hell off. When they say stupid s**t like this, they’re basically dismissing Dylan’s story and the suffer she endured.

    If you want to stay silent and prop up an abuser, the least you can do is not act the allegations against him are simply rumours and “speculation”. So damn disrespectful.

  26. LinaLamont says:

    I can understand not wanting to comment on accusations. I can’t understand not seeing what a douche he is.

    Unfortunately, the Woody Allen accusations are a she-said/he-said. Nothing stuck.
    However, look at the relationship with his wife, when it started, the things he’s said about “allowing” her to think, his “gift” to her…
    Years ago, when I first saw “Hannah and her Sisters”, I hated it. (this was before the accusations) The whole premise…sleeping with your wife’s sister, your ex’s sister. ..and, all is forgiven. It was pervy/icky then; it’s pervy/icky now.
    Also, Diane Keaton is the worst when it comes to Allen. All that said, I think some of his work IS genius.

    About Blake’s style/clothes…love all of it. It’s her. ..not a stylist. No matter what she wears, I think it just works for her.

    • Bridget says:

      The ‘Blake doesn’t have a stylist’ thing is something of a misdirection. She may not formally employ a stylist, but she gets entire looks sent to her by the design houses, and of course employs an assistant who does all of the work that a stylist traditionally does (picking items up, organizing, shipping, packing, etc). Not to mention that it turned out she spent her time on Gossip Girl borrowing whole looks Pat Field put together

      • Six of Nine says:

        Blake’s style is interesting and boho and always messy-unfinished. But also stylistically not individually and always attempts to make her look like an older teen and not like a mature, married woman. Nothing wrong with looking younger, though.
        She always looks like she left the set of a fashion shoot for some magazine. But she never looks really individualist. She often looks like in costume.
        Or she looks like she is wearing what other people would like her to wear.

  27. Irene says:

    Someone needs to tell this basic, talentless asshole that rape and child molestation don’t fall under the umbrella of someone’s “personal life”.

    • MC2 says:

      This 10000x

      Once you rape or molest another person, it’s no longer your ‘personal business’.

      • caitlinK says:

        MC2: Thank you so much for this! Once another person is effected–devastated–by your trespassing on their body, by any kind of abuse, then you have just made your “personal business” no longer solely your own; hence, your actions deserve no pretense of respectful protection at all. Your “personal business” then deserves– and needs– to be exposed, and thoroughly condemned. Silence about such cases is conspiratorial betrayal.

  28. adastraperaspera says:

    If any of us had a “personal life” like Allen has had, we would be reading Celebitchy from prison:
    http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2014/02/woody-allen-sex-abuse-10-facts

    “In his 33-page decision, Judge Wilk found that Mr. Allen’s behavior toward Dylan was “grossly inappropriate and that measures must be taken to protect her.”

    “The Yale-New Haven Hospital Child Sex Abuse Clinic’s finding that Dylan had not been sexually molested, cited repeatedly by Allen’s attorneys, was not accepted as reliable by Judge Wilk, or by the Connecticut state prosecutor who originally commissioned them.”

    “The state attorney, Maco, said publicly he did have probable cause to press charges against Allen but declined, due to the fragility of the “child victim.”

  29. Cat87 says:

    The double standard is so real in Hollywood as well the prevliage. Woody Allen gets a pass because……nope he is still a disgusting human being in my book. He will forever be a sexual predator and I do not see nor buy his movies. Blake Lively is a mom of two now and she feels completely comfortable being in the presence of a child molester…..wtf is wrong with her?

  30. rahrahrooey says:

    It’s a very dangerous thing to not have a brain.

  31. holly hobby says:

    Ugh, Blake, I like you if you don’t speak of this ever again. Where’s Susan Sarandon to knock some sense into her?

  32. 0neNonBlonde says:

    She really should just shut up.

  33. Lisa says:

    Uh huh. And ignoring victims of rape is dangerous, too.

  34. Vinot says:

    Dear Blake Lively,
    You have a wrong and unpopular opinion. Please shutty.

    Dear Blake’s publicist,
    Are you on strike? Please ask her to shutty.

    Seriously. She’s burned through the very little goodwill I had for her from The Town, and as a mother herself, she should recognize why this is a big issue. I don’t know why she keeps taking soundbite bait from reporters (yes I do, she’s dumb and eager to talk about herself).

    • Six of Nine says:

      Yep, not the brightest. Nevertheless what do you think it means that Blake got such a career out of her deficits?

  35. Margo S. says:

    Why does she keep talking about woody? She sounds so dumb and is making people dislike her more and more. I agree. Say no comment next time! Not a very bright one is she.

  36. Aren says:

    People who say she would only change her mind if Woody did something to one of her children, you honestly think that? Do you really think she doesn’t know the guy married his daughter? At this point it’s clear Blake would do ANYTHING for fame.

  37. Rebecca says:

    No Blake. What’s dangerous is trying to shame people so they won’t talk about what a child molester did. Shame on you!

    Kristen Stewart and Blake Lively have the same thing in common. Neither can act. This is why they are so quick to do a Woody Allen movie and defend him. They both desperately need the serious roles with an acclaimed writer, director, etc. Nevertheless, this is not a defense for getting involved with Woody Allen and defending him with idiotic remarks to the media.

    I think it’s time for Blake to reread the the first amendment!

  38. Lindy says:

    She’s famewhorey and brainless. She needs to sit down and stop defending Woody Allen.

  39. Craig says:

    What is the saying?

    It’s better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    Yes that one.

    Cate Blanchett was at least smart enough to never discuss this issue in public, as Dylan’s op-ed was 1st published during Oscar season for “Blue Jasmine” and Cate just stayed out of it and tried to avoid any comment.

    I adore Blanchett, but I still cast a bit of shade her way for campaigning for that Oscar, Allen’s past behavior be damned.

    At least we don’t have to worry about Lively ever repeating this situation.

  40. Truthie says:

    I’m ok with her staying mum on people’s private lives that she knows nothing about. It’s the whole “allure of the Antebellum” idea that she came up with on her own that I find a little frightening!

    • Six of Nine says:

      Indeed. Blake seemed to have bought into that idea of a beautiful south with beautiful ladies in beautiful gowns and gallant gentlemen but she didn’t see the abuse and slavery and worse behind that.
      And apparently nobody warned her? Manager? Publicist? Family? Friends? Lawyer? Very odd.

      And apparently Anna Wintour pushed her a bit to hurry her to get that website online? I still wonder if Anna Wintour pushed Blake to go online in order to make Blake impale herself on her own antebellum sword? Wintour is no idiot and surely she would have seen the pitfalls of an Antebellum website? And surely she knows Blake well enough to not overrate the latter’s intelligence? Surely Wintour who has overseen countless Vogue stories and editorials and photo shoots knows enough to spot the pitfalls of uncritical antebellum admiration?
      Very very interesting.

  41. Drusilla says:

    She’s revolting. An uneducated racist who defends child abusers, nothing more.

  42. Sunshine Gold says:

    She’s so ignorant.

  43. Six of Nine says:

    It is too early to tell but I think Ryan Reynolds career will suffer thanks to Blake. Just an intuition.

    And yes, Blake is disgusting. I bet once she can’t play the blonde cutie any more she will be out of work. Meryl Streep she ain’t. Not even Goldie Hawn. (God I wish I had Goldie Hawn’s charm.)

    • Lee says:

      “It is too early to tell but I think Ryan Reynolds career will suffer thanks to Blake. Just an intuition.”

      This! + 1

    The question is should every actor in Hollywood refuse to work with Allen (imo YES) But of course they won’t. And simply by appearing in one of his films, these people give him some sort of validation.

    Again that’s just my opinion, but this disgusts me, child abuse is vile. However plenty of male stars are more than happy to work with WA and gush about how great he his.

    Step forward the currently in the spotlight Tom Hiddleston, on working with creepy WA.

    Unsurprisingly, the entire Woody Allen experience was a pleasure. “It was one of those things where it’s like, Paris! Woody Allen! It was a dream, such a great, surreal time.” Yuk !

    Blake Lively comes across as a total dimwit, but TH is supposed to be a nice, well educated type. It just goes to show, these people will sell their souls to the devil to get on in the film industry.

    I actually do think that Woody writes female characters very well. I can understand WHY from a business perspective women would want to work with him. He writes very well and has a knack for dialogue. Perhaps not to everyone’s tastes but I really enjoy his movies.

    The truth is these women and men who work with Allen wilfully ignore the truth of his past because they want to work with him professionally. When it comes to business, people do make such choices. It’s not necessarily defendable, but it happens all the time.
