Actress of Slumdog Millionaire fame Freida Pinto has now reportedly joined the long list of actors who have regretted working with veteran filmmaker Woody Allen.
In an interview with The Guardian, Pinto, who worked in Allen’s 2010 film “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger”, was asked whether she would team up again with the director.
She replied, “No. Absolutely not. I wouldn’t work with him because I’m in solidarity with women who have come out with their stories, whether they are proven or not.”
“I’m just going to stick to what my gut instinct tells me. I’m 34 years old, I’ve worked for 11 years in this industry, I’m not desperate and I will never be desperate,” she added.
Dylan, Allen’s adopted daughter with former wife Mia Farrow, accused the director of sexually abusing her in the early 1990s while she was a child. She reiterated her claims in a 2014 New York Times op-ed and other articles.
The allegations have caught steam in the wake of the #MeToo uprising after which a number of celebrities like Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Hall, Colin Firth, Ellen Page and Natalie Portman, among others, regretted working with the filmmaker.
