Scarlett Johansson still supports Woody Allen, of course: ‘I believe my friend’

AMA Awards 2019 Arrivals

Scarlett Johansson covers the Vanity Fair “Awards Season” supplemental cover, because it’s very likely that ScarJo will be getting her very first Oscar nomination this season for Marriage Story. And maybe JoJo Rabbit, although I think that’s more of an outside chance. We’ve spoken about this before, it’s really looking like ScarJo’s biggest competition for Best Actress would be Renee Zellweger’s Judy Garland drag. Who will Oscar voters choose if it’s between Renee and Scarlett? I really don’t know. Part of me believes that those old Academy voters probably love Scarlett. Part of me believes that Scarlett has said too many stupid things to really be a viable Oscar contender though – like her Woody Allen comments, or how she insists that she should be free to play any race, any gender, any tree. I bring those up because wouldn’t you know, VF gave Scarlett the chance to speak in greater depth about that stuff, and she tried to clean up her own mess. Some highlights from this VF interview:

Motherhood helped her understand Marriage Story: “What would have been different is if I hadn’t been a mom. That was actually more valuable to me than the experience of going through a divorce. Because I never actually went through the kind of divorce that’s portrayed in the film. Yes, of course, part of the film is about the system of divorce, or the business of divorce, and how f–ked up it is, but that was Noah’s experience more than mine. But the experience of being a mother was very helpful, and it was a great tool…. You know, understanding what it is to co-parent—that’s a very specific thing. It’s hard to raise a child with someone you’re no longer with. It’s hard. It’s not probably how it’s ‘supposed to be’—in quotes—or whatever…. But, you know, I think my ex and I do it as well as we can. You have to prioritize your child and not put yourself in the middle. It has its challenges.”

She really wants to get marriage right with Colin Jost: “The idea of building a family, making a family, and having that work, I like that idea. I think that would be wonderful. I’ve always wanted that. I wanted that also in my marriage to my daughter’s father as well. It just wasn’t the right person. But I like that idea…. I mean, the first time I got married I was 23 years old. I didn’t really have an understanding of marriage. Maybe I kind of romanticized it, I think, in a way. It’s a different part of my life now. I feel like I’m in a place in my life, I feel I’m able to make more active choices. I’m more present, I think, than I’ve been before.”

On her previous comments defending Woody Allen: “I’m not a politician, and I can’t lie about the way I feel about things. I don’t have that. It’s just not a part of my personality. I don’t want to have to edit myself, or temper what I think or say. I can’t live that way. It’s just not me. And also I think that when you have that kind of integrity, it’s going to probably rub people, some people, the wrong way. And that’s kind of par for the course, I guess…. “

Whether she’s ever changed her mind about defending Woody:
“I don’t know—I feel the way I feel about it. It’s my experience. I don’t know any more than any other person knows. I only have a close proximity with Woody…he’s a friend of mine. But I have no other insight other than my relationship with him.”

Whether she’s considered that, by defending Woody, she’s telling victims that she doesn’t believe them: “Yeah… I do understand how that is triggering for some people. But just because I believe my friend does not mean that I don’t support women, believe women. I think you have to take it on a case-by-case basis. You can’t have this blanket statement—I don’t believe that. But that’s my personal belief. That’s how I feel.”

Her statements about playing a transgender character in Rub & Tug: “In hindsight, I mishandled that situation. I was not sensitive, my initial reaction to it. I wasn’t totally aware of how the trans community felt about those three actors playing—and how they felt in general about cis actors playing—transgender people. I wasn’t aware of that conversation—I was uneducated. So I learned a lot through that process. I misjudged that…. It was a hard time. It was like a whirlwind. I felt terribly about it. To feel like you’re kind of tone-deaf to something is not a good feeling.” I point out how there’s a danger that people will read that—about how horrible it is to feel tone-deaf—and refer it back to the conversation about Woody Allen…. “Yes, they will,” she says. “It feels like a snake eating its tail, doesn’t it?”

[From Vanity Fair]

“… And also I think that when you have that kind of integrity, it’s going to probably rub people, some people, the wrong way…” That’s a Goop-level brag right there, to defend your previous statements in which you caped for a child molester and then PRAISE YOURSELF for having integrity for… not listening to the counter-arguments for why should actually climb out of your own ass for a moment and listen to a victim’s statement. All that being said, Scarlett just refuses to back down from her position on Woody Allen, and clearly, no one is going to change her mind. It will be an interesting case study for Oscar campaigns in the future, and we’ll get to see how it plays out in real time. I’m not expecting her to back down. If anything, I suspect she’ll double-down on her Woody-love several times before the Oscars.

    Friends sometimes lie.

    • Who ARE These People? says:

      Yes. And so do people who are otherwise smart and talented. All of that helps them get away with things.

    • SM says:

      I am not sure what is more disturbing, her ignorance or her thinking that whatever she has in common with that man is friendship

    • Christina says:

      Friends’ family members sometimes lie too. Just an observation.

    • Nightsky says:

      Excellent observation!

    • Kitten says:

      Never bought ScarJo’s pro-woman #MeToo act and this only proves me right.

    • CooCoo Catchoo says:

      … especially friends who have something criminal to hide. I’m not sorry for believing his victim.
      As a mother, I wish ScarJo had supported Woody’s victim – and I’m very disappointed that she didn’t.

  2. Rapunzel says:

    Quick, someone cast her as a tree, so maybe she’ll shut up.

    Bit–, spare me your self congratulation. You can believe your friend without publically supporting him and painting victims as liars.

  3. Maria says:

    Don’t play stupid, you overrated moron. I cannot stand her.

    • naomipaige99 says:

      Same here. No offense to anybody, but what a dumb blonde. She’s nauseating.

      • minx says:

        She’s a mediocre actress who somehow thinks she’s an intellectual. I’m looking forward to her aging out of her acting career…she doesn’t have enough talent to proceed after she’s not the curvy young blonde. She’s no Winslet or Streep. And she needs to stop posing with her mouth open!

    • Darla says:

      I don’t think it’s an act though.

    • Snappyfish says:

      I have NEVER understood her allure. The movies I have seen her in she is barely watchable. (Disclaimer: I haven’t seen the marvel movies) I think she is attractive but not to the extent she thinks or is reported to be. Her support of Woody Allen has always upset me BUT this knowledge that she is a mother & she supports this creep is beyond the pale.

      She seems, well to be honest, stupid. Colin Jost is not. This marriage will go the same way as her previous I predict. (There is no joy in saying that) She will get bored or he will realize that “pretty & stupid” eventually wear thin.

      She is insufferable

    • whatWHAT? says:

      REALLY. she only has “the insight of her relationship with him” and NOTHING ELSE?

      like Dylan’s statements and the nanny’s testimony doesn’t EXIST?


      • Aims says:

        I feel horrible for Dylan. She was sexually abused at a young age, and her abuser happens to be a famous director. So that gives him a pass among hollywood. This poor woman has been slandered against and flat out told that she’s a liar. She is the example of victim shaming. I am disgusted that anyone would defend an abuser just because he’s a friend. I believe Dylan and I am so sorry that someone she trusted assulted her as a baby, and I equally sorry that since then she has been draged through the mud and not believed. Scarlet and anyone else who defend abusers can go to hell.

  4. Chica1971 says:

    Part of me gets why she is defending her friend, but it’s clear that she really never listened to the victims. People wear many masks and she knew Woody after the abuse. His marriage to his adopted daughter she give her pause for thought. Bottom line she is ignorant and self involved, this is as good as it gets.

    • Spikey says:

      I totally get why you would want to stand by your friend. I would want that, too! If my best friend was faced with abuse allegations I’d instinctively want do disbelieve, because I *know* this person, I’ve *lived* with this person. He’s not that kind of person. What kind of a person would I be if I was that close to an abuser? How could I not see this?
      But this is not that. With Woody there a facts that are really hard to overlook. I read Ronan’s fantastic book, and as I understand it, there were very sketchy shenanigans with Dillon’s testimony. And then Woody turned arount and married his barely legal, adoptive daughter. Yeah. So, even as a devoted friend – if my best friend were as messy as Woody – I would need some *very* good answers as to how all this is in any way shape or form justifiable. I cannot imagine any.

      Or she’s just stupid.

      • Erinn says:

        I think your feelings mirror mine. I’m sure it’d rock your world to hear that a longtime friend that you’ve only had positive experiences with was accused of something terrible. But you have to listen to what the victims are saying, and be respectful of their experience. It’s one thing to say “hey buddy, don’t worry about it, things will improve” in private, but as soon as you stick your neck out for something like that KNOWING that humans are capable of horrible things (especially in a way that discredits the victims) you’re making a huge statement.

        And it’d kill me to think that I’d made a public statement about something I wasn’t present for, or involved in in any way, and it turned out that the allegations were true, or potentially more damning than perceived at first. I’d want to curl up in a hole and die, tbh.

        But that’s the difference. Some people just don’t care. They only want to see what they want to see, and they’ll step over a victim to validate their support of someone. And that’s screwed up. And that’s exactly the kind of thing she keeps doing. If more people could just use critical thinking skills and actually LISTEN to victims, the world would be so much of a better place.

      • Steph says:

        His defenders always say “well why was the investigation dismissed , hmmmm? If he were guilty he would have been brought to trial” and it’s like no- read an article about this directly. The DA said they had enough evidence to prosecute, but didn’t want to torment Dylan with a trial. That doesn’t mean Woody was cleared. Just that he got away with it.

        And im sorry but no man who is right in the brain has an affair/marries a young woman that he helped raise as a daughter. Forever gross!

      • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

        Seems like TQ and ScarJo have a LOT in common, doesn’t it?
        Both “don’t want to believe” their darlings could do what they did, even with all the evidence smacking them in the head.

        Both are dead wrong! Don’t have an ounce of respect for either one of them.

    • Morita says:

      That’s something that our society at large has to come to terms with. Rapists and pedophiles aren’t marginals who hide behind the bush and only come out at night. They’re your brothers, your fathers, your uncles, your friends, etc.

      • Who ARE These People? says:

        Scream it from the hills – thanks Morita for reinforcing the facts.

      • Elisa says:

        Very well said, Morita.

      • Marigold says:

        Word, Morita. That’s one of the first things we taught our daughter. My husband was adamant that it be from as soon as she could talk. “What do bad guys look like, Baby?” “Just like everyone else, Daddy.”

        That’s truth right there.

    • CL says:

      For the record, he was never her adoptive father. Her father is Andre Previn.
      Woody did have an affair with, then marry, his long time girlfriend’s daughter, who he’d known since she was a child. That is gross enough for me.

  5. Eliza says:

    I just don’t like her acting. I hope Renee wins

  6. Mia4s says:

    There are many reasons why she may not win the Oscar but neither the Allen or trans role comments are among them. I would be willing to bet a lot of people in Hollywood agree with her and “admire” her comments….their PR just has a tighter leash on them. Not that much has changed, not really.

  7. Lindy79 says:

    “But just because I believe my friend does not mean that I don’t support women, believe women. I think you have to take it on a case-by-case basis.”
    Actually, that’s exactly what it means, and in this case it’s clear you don’t believe women.

    • grabbyhands says:


      I believe women, just not THAT woman. That’s not how that works, Scarlett.

      People need to get over the idea that just because someone didn’t do something to you, doesn’t mean they couldn’t have done something to someone else.

    • Carol says:

      I kind of have a different take on her comment. I do think she struggles between supporting her friend Woody and looking at all those things that point to Woody being guilty very seriously. I don’t think she is anti-women. But rather a little clueless.

  8. Léna says:

    I don’t like her. But her point of view on many things is (sadly) the same as many people in the society. Maybe we (the public) should stop seeing celebrities like their are special and have a higher understanding of difficult issues / topics?

    (Not that difficult for some for sure, but she is not bright either)

    • Maria says:

      I think that’s the whole point, lots of us are trying to point out why her comments make her trashy and nobody wants to listen….

  9. Gigi La Moore says:

    She’s loyal, I will give her that.

  10. Trish-a says:

    Wasn’t she married to Ryan Reynolds when she was young, then had a child with second husband?

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      Yes. RR was her first husband. They were married just under 3 yrs. I believe, most of it apart, for work.

  11. emmy says:

    Oh honey, no, don’t edit yourself. We like knowing who we’re spending or not spending our money on.

  12. Marysia says:

    I don’t get one thing: she hates that she was being sexualised at the beginning of her career and yet she defends Allen, who cast her in Match point as this super sexy woman who makes guys do stupid things and who basically has no other traits of character besides that.
    So maybe it was not a huge issue for her?

  13. Laura says:

    She has no insight??
    I can go online and in 5 minutes pull up Dylan’s statement (then go throw up)
    then look up many many articles and profiles of Woody’s morally questionable, shady af, allegedly criminal behavior over many decades.
    Including the former prosecutor who stated that the main reason they didn’t pursue charges was Dylan’s age. They didn’t want to put her through more trauma. All your expressed empathy for how it feels to be a mother now, Scarlet?
    Look at your child and imagine how you would feel if a family member that you both loved and trusted betrayed you in that fashion. Normal people do not have decades of rumours and claims and investigations following them.

    • Original Jenns says:

      Exactly! I remember a student who went through Allen’s old notebooks/manuscripts and found so many instances of super young girls (in one, literally changing the ages from 21 down to two 16 year olds) falling in love with some quirky old man. THAT is character. THAT is not hidden away, Scarlett. Like you said, it’s all out there. She just doesn’t care because it doesn’t benefit her. That’s how she judges on a case by case basis.

  14. Brinibini says:

    Quick question: Are the Independent Spirit Awards nominations in any way “foreshadowing” who could be nominated for an Oscar? Marriage Story got no nominations in any acting categories.

    • Lena says:

      Not totally although it helps as do nominations for golden globes, SAG, various critics awards etc. if you look at those nominations though there’s a lot of obscure films that they want to give a boost to.

    • Mia4s says:

      Means nothing in this case. The Independent Spirit Awards have a “Best Ensemble” award that they announce in advance and it is going to Marriage Story. To spread the wealth they don’t allow anyone who shares in the Best Ensemble award to be nominated in the acting categories. Not the worst idea. 🤷‍♀️

  15. Redgrl says:

    Newsflash Scarlet! I work as a prosecutor. A big part of my caseload is sex crimes. Behind every person charged with a sex crime -whether they plead guilty as they so rarely do or whether they are found guilty after a trial, there are always family, a spouse, or a group of friends who refuse to believe it. One guy turned his whole family against his teenaged daughter when she disclosed his abuse. She ended up in foster care. He was convicted, went to jail and for whatever reason when he got out years later told his family she had been telling the truth. Some of them STILL refused to believe it. Others grovelled to her for forgiveness and she refused (luckily her foster family was amazing and became permanent). All this to say despite Scarlett’s arrogant prattling she’s not unique or smart or brimming with integrity – she’s been groomed and lied to and fooled by a pedophile and refuses to see it. This infuriates me on so many levels that I can barely see straight. The reporter should’ve asked her if she would allowWoody Allen to babysit her daughter.

    • Noli says:

      The worst thing is she will allow him with eyes close.

    • styla says:

      Ha! Exactly! That question would have been brilliant and would have given her pause to truly think. But at the same time, I’m a little scared of what her answer might be…

      • Redgrl says:

        It’s a question I routinely ask relatives of sex offenders when they show up at sentencing hearings to support their friend/family member. And yes, it’s disgusting how many of them sat “oh of course!” (Which, per plan, leaves the judge seriously unimpressed!)

    • Original Jenns says:

      As someone who works in the legal field, I see what you see every day and it breaks my heart. Moms blaming daughters, families choosing to keep the monster in their folds and outcast the victim. It’s disgusting. Scarlett is more of the same, and it’s infuriating that she’s given this platform to spew more of her ignorance.

    • Christina says:

      Redgrl, thank you for your service to all of us. You see what people refuse to and you protect the vulnerable.

      I wish that journalists WOULD ASK all of these ScarJo-like actors and actresses if they’d allow Woody to babysit their 3-4 year olds.

      • Laura Cee says:

        I was trying to get my words correct to thank Redgrl (and all others who help protect) and was struggling, thanks Christina for putting it perfectly!

      • Redgrl says:

        @christina & @laura Cee – thank you for your kind words. Amidst all the darkness we see it is very much appreciated…

    • (TheOG)@Jan90067 says:

      When I was a teacher we had kids in our school from a children’s home (kids who were made wards of the court due to abuse, neglect, etc.). One little girl in my class one year was one of these kids. She’d been in the system since age 3 (she was 7 when she was first in my class, then again the following year when I moved up a grade with my kids). Dad had pimped her out and abused her himself. Considering her past, she was an amazingly sweet little girl. I tried to take her under my wing. Along with another girl in my class (from the same home). I took them out to lunches, bought them clothes that they needed etc (all with approval from their Social Workers of course!).

      Anyway TL:DR: Dad was about to get out of prison. HIS plan was to move in with his mother, and try and get back custody. And the courts were considering it!! Granny was ALL for this! This is when Family Reunification was considered paramount over the best for the child…unthinkable, right?? “My ” little one was terrified of this. Well, older sister of this girl had *just* aged out of foster care, and she petitioned the court, and thankfully got full custody! I was SO happy!

      But yeah, ScarJo… you and your “integrity” can suck a$$. Remember: “When people show you who they are, believe them the first time.” ~Maya Angelou

      • JoanCallamezzo says:

        Those girls will always remember your kindness. I had a few wonderful teachers throughout my childhood who helped me with clothes and sometimes food and it made a difference. Good on you.

    • Seraphina B says:

      I was just about to comment that! If she believes in her friend so much, she should let Woody babysit her daughter !
      What an idiot.

    • MsGnomer says:

      My Heartfelt gratitude RedGRL for the work you do. I fled my family as soon as I could, and went into hiding. I knew no one would believe me. I’m glad no one in my family knows anyone with as much fame as ScarJo to publicly shame me. I believe Dylan.

  16. Mtec says:

    For me she’s the kind of person who is willing to turn a blind eye to a lot of things as long as it’s convenient for her. She’s willingly ignorant about an abuser because he gives her work and she ignores the struggles of marginalized groups in the entertainment industry because they won’t let her do w.e she wants with their stories. She’s showing herself to be a very dumb pseudo-intellectual.

  17. SJR says:

    Laura, well said.

  18. Cidy says:

    She just talks herself into holes, man.

  19. Darla says:

    Scarlett’s gonna Scarlett. She’ll be over a lot sooner than her recent run of amazingly good luck indicates. She should not be in two of the most anticipated films this year. I think this is it for her though. Black Widow is gonna begin her decline. We would no longer remember her name if the first choices had accepted that role. It’s a shame, but I can wait.

  20. Lucy says:

    It’d be fun/interesting to see some of her colleagues starting to publicly call her out. Not that I think will happen. As for the Oscar, I hope it goes to JLo.

    • Darla says:

      Well, none of the woker than woke avengers cast will. Who’s more woke than Mark Bernie Bro Ruffalo? You won’t hear a word from his mouth about it.

      • A says:

        Chris Evans also loves flaunting his (faux) wokeness any chance he gets yet he is more close with Scarlett than Mark Ruffalo so don’t expect him to call her out either.

      • Darla says:

        Agree, he won’t. Disagree that he is anywhere near as performatively “woke” as Ruffalo. Ruffalo takes the cake on that. I actually don’t think it’s fake on either of their parts. I just think it can be very lacking, certainly intersectionally lacking.

      • A says:

        I personally believe Mark is more woke for real than Evans, not saying he doesn’t have his faults but his intention seems genuine most of the time unlike Evans who looks like he’s trying to integrate Captain America image with his own. Total fraud.

      • Darla says:

        Well we all have our differing personal impressions of people, but we’ve never met either of them and who really knows for sure. If more woke for real means bernie bro’ing, then we differ there. I hold that against him, sounds like you have a problem with evans, whatever it may be. Maybe one of us is right, maybe we’re both wrong. We’ll never know.

      • A says:

        I’m not American so I couldn’t care less about his “bernie bro-ing” and even if I did I still wouldn’t hold that against him considering how much effort he puts in fighting for other issues. And yeah you’re right I do side eye Captain Bare Minimum most of the time but also applaud him whenever he does something right, which is very rare but still.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Seconding hoping it goes to JLO!

  21. lily says:

    Vanity Fair under Radhika Jones is REALLY bad. I was rooting for her despite the fact on paper she was never really a good fit for Vanity Fair. But I didn’t expect the magazine to go this downhill. Every cover has been the same, even her debut with Lena Waithe fell flat because that dreary cover portrait in a white tee…Conde Nast need to hire someone with a real passion for pop culture and fashion as well as hard hitting journalism.

    • Redgrl says:

      @lily – totally agree re Vanity Fair, sadly.

    • Tourmaline says:

      I agree I wouldn’t be surprised if Vanity Fair only has a few years left as a print edition, at the most, and ends up as an online only entity soon. It has really withered.

  22. Yep says:

    If someone could cast her as an out of touch, overly coddled, overpaid starlet who believes in the innocence of a director who keeps making movies about old men and young women and who conveniently married his adopted daughter — that would be so awesome.

    Then again, that might be too much truth for her. So let’s just have her play roles meant for Asian/Asian-American women instead.

    Her arrogance and lack of accountability is really somethin else.

  23. Marjorie says:

    Her remarks about building a family with the SNL bro are strange. She has a daughter, she has a family. Actually the whole interview is strange.

  24. kellybean says:

    There really are just not redeeming qualities to this woman.

  25. Tiffany says:

    So she would not have understood the role of playing a mother is she was not one herself.

    Wow, Timber really is not that great of a actress is she.

  26. A says:

    I hope this hurts her Oscar campaign but knowing how the industry works she’ll be fine. Ugh. I really want some legit mainstream feminist to drag her crusty overrated ass for constantly defending this creep. Its time to take out the trash.

  27. Marty says:

    Congrats to her for sticking with her sh*tty take. Maybe they’ll put that in her obituary, “Staunch defender of Woody Allen”.

    Someone needs to tell her integrity and ignorance don’t mean the same thing.

  28. Silas says:

    That integrity comment is an echo of Prince. Andrew’s remark about being too honorable.

    • Darla says:

      You’re right, it is.

    • Tourmaline says:

      Just a reminder of who was seen coming out of Epstein’s Manhattan townhouse the same day that Andrew was staying there in 2010 and took the famous ‘Walk in Central Park’ — Woody and Soon-Yi.

  29. Jake says:

    Using the phrase “rub people the wrong way” might not be the wisest idea when the subject is Woody Allen.

  30. Case says:

    I just can’t stand her. I’ve never seen her appeal. She has no on-screen presence and is pretty, yes, but not nearly as stunning as she’s made out to be. And her personality makes her ugly, quite frankly – she seems like an ignorant person who thinks she’s super intellectual.

    Re: Allen – I don’t hold it against her that she wants to believe her friend. That’s fine. But publicly supporting him over and over while seemingly ignoring the victim’s claims is turning a blind eye, not making an educated decision based on all the facts.

  31. Sparkles says:

    She should just admit the truth. She knows what he has done (its undeniable really) and just doesn’t care. Scarlett being in denial (publically) about Woody does not, in my eyes, absolve Scarlett of the fact she supports a man who abuses women. I think she is weak and has picked the wrong side here. I hope she comes to her senses.

    Hasn’t it been said that for evil men to accomplish their purpose it is only necessary that good men (and women) should do nothing.

    There’s a special place in hell for abusers and the abusive people who support them. People like Scarlett who still support monsters despite a long history of victims and abuse are a HUGE part of the cycle of abuse and people like her help monsters to continue to prey on victims.

  32. Carina says:

    She might be the dumbest woman in Hollywood. Truly. Like, proudly stupid. I wish she would walk off a cliff, the world is better off w/o ppl like her.

    I feel bad for her daughter that this PoS is her mother. Oh & good luck Colin Jost – she’s already stepped out on you multiple times & you’re not even married yet 😂 how precious he thinks she’s going to be different than the others.

    This years oscars will once again be a mess. Watch the press & suck-up outlets ignore this all.

      LOL. I don’t think Colin Jost is some sort of prize either, TBH. He’s as privileged and out of touch as she is. They are a boring, idiotic, Miracle Whip match made in hell.

  33. Margo Smith says:

    All I’m gonna say, is marvel better remove her from that black widow movie because she is just bad for business. What a dummy, who the actual eff believes Woody Allen.

    • Mtec says:

      Woody successfully achieved one of the most effective gaslighting campaigns against his daughter and Mia. So I’m not surprised a lot of people believe him or are too lazy or unmotivated by their bias to do actual research. Unfortunately many people are unaware that the judge actually found him guilty and chose not to press charges to spare Dylan the trial (which I think was a terrible decision in hindsight).

      • perplexed says:

        He married the stepdaughter, though.!She can’t pretend not to know about that. I mean, the rest of us who have never met him know that…

    • Darla says:

      Scarlett is Black Widow, she’s not being removed. But the character is dead, and this film takes place prior to Infinity war in the TL, so we won’t be seeing her again. I personally believe this is the best year she’ll ever have, and it’s all down hill after Black Widow makes its inevitable splash. I expect it to be a hit because I suspect Marvel will have some big surprise appearances in it. But that’s it for her. Let’s see how she does when that’s done.

    • Carina says:

      Oh trust me, they won’t. The Black Widow movie has wrapped & Marvel/Disney don’t give a f*ck. Truly.

      • Miss V says:

        I absolutely love the Marvel movies, but will NOT be supporting Black Widow because of Scarlett. She’s insufferable and ignorant to I so many levels…. I hope there are other people out there that will do the same.

    is this the Susan Sarandon of our generation? Is this the Susan Sarandon we deserve?

  35. Jumpingthesnark says:

    Oh now she has “integrity”??? I guess if by “integrity” she means “I’ll cape for any gross old white dude who can help me get that oscar” . She wouldn’t know real integrity if it dropped on her head.

  36. MrsPanda says:

    She looks like she’s been hit on the head with a mallet in that cover shot. She looks vacant and obnoxious. The photographer captured her essence wonderfully! Zellweger will beat her at the Oscars.

  37. DS9 says:

    Your friend started sleeping with his long term girlfriend’s abused and neglected

    daughter despite the fact that she is siblings with his children and was likely a child or little more than one when the relationship because began and thus, forced her to be on the outs with the only family she remembers.

    That’s reprehensible all on it’s own even if you choose to believe he didn’t molest Dylan.

  38. Linda says:

    Stupid woman.

  39. perplexed says:

    She knows he married his stepdaughter, right?

  40. Alex says:

    Man…defending Woody Allen is NOT the hill to die on.

  41. Iulia says:

    This disgusting snake has f-cked and married his own daughter. I don’t care about biological or legal entitlements or the lack of. He was her guardian and carer in a parent role. Nothing can top that for me as more nauseating. I have not a problem believing such a disturbed individual would abuse his own biological daughter. And this idiot that self programs herself a friend of such a character, is just like him, a fake.

  42. Elizabeth says:

    So glad that I’m not the only person who doesn’t get her charm. She’s no more talented than the vast majority of actresses in Hollywood and considerably stupider than most of them. She can be striking, but if you pick apart her features she’s not beautiful. She’s always presented as “sexy,” but that just makes her look low class to me. Can you picture her playing Julia Sugarbaker? Galadriel? Sabrina? Any Grace Kelly character? Even Elle Woods, who was upper class?

  43. Kyra WEGMAN says:

    It takes a certain kind of snake to fall in love with your ex-partner’s teenaged daughter. I don’t understand how he has any friends at all.

  44. Nobody important says:

    It’s sad to see how many petty attacks people are posting in response to ScarJo’s opinion. People can’t seem to agree to disagree, or know that it’s ok to have differences of opinion. She didn’t say anything outrageous or controversial. Her answers had decency – something many of the replies here lack. I don’t share all her views but I certainly agree with accusations being addressed case-by-case. Not all accusers are honest. Not all accusers are victims. Not all of the accused are guilty by default because a woman makes a claim. There’s no question abuse happens. There’s no question some people are true victims. There’s no question not everyone accused of abuse is guilty of it. There’s no question women making claims should automatically be believed without proof.

  45. MangoAngel says:

    Diane Keaton’s exact words on the subject have always been simply, “I believe my friend.”

    I honestly wonder how many people here who are dragging Scarlett for this have used the same words to describe Diane for the exact same words.

    I loathe and despise Woody Allen and believe every terrible thing about him. But it has seemed like people froth at the mouth to go at actresses like Scarlett because they don’t like her personality-wise, but give quirky Keaton a pass because they find her more personally palatable.

  46. IntheKnow says:

    She is gross
