Justin Timberlake's seemingly innocent photo of himself and his wife, Jessica Biel, getting ready for The Golden Globes and supporting #TimesUp is getting serious backlash because of Timberlake's work with Woody Allen. "Not just because he was a great thinker, because I have been known to have some reasonably profound insights myself, although mine invariably revolve around two eighteen-year-old cocktail waitresses and some rope handcuffs", reads the notes in a draft of short story "My Apology", according to Morgan. "I struggle to understand how a woman who believes Woody Allen is "empowering to women" can claim the role as an advocate for women suffering from sexual harassment", she told Buzzfeed about Lively. "She really, for lack of a better term, took the bull by the reins and said, 'I'm going to do this project, ' and did it". There were the men who weren't even asked to speak about them.
Dylan Farrow's accusations kicked off years of controversy and acrimonious accusations against Allen, complicated by the fact that Allen left Mia Farrow for one of her other children, her daughter Soon-Yi Previn, and married Previn in 1997. Lively has been speaking out against sexual harassment for months, but when The Hollywood Reporter asked her about Farrow's allegation against Allen, she had this to say: "It's unbelievable what Woody has written for women". I saw how much she put into it and how hard she worked.
Dylan reflected on how she made the decision to publish the letter following Allen being awarded the Cecil B. DeMille accolade for lifetime achievement "detailing the abuse [she] sustained at the hands of Woody Allen".
We can no longer let these men represent us in entertainment, politics, or any other realm.
"That is an admirable and worthwhile objective, I hope these women change the world".
Operation Black on the Golden Globes red carpet was always going to be tricky to navigate - especially for those who have films on their resume with the dodgy likes of Woody Allen.
"I deeply regret working with Woody Allen on Wonder Wheel".
"Of all the famous men who ever lived, the one I would most like to have been was Socrates".
"And I will watch to see if now, finally, time is up for my predator too", she finished.
