Scarlett Johansson Finally Weighs In On Woody Allen Controversy

Posted Monday March 17, 2014 9:56 AM GMT

She’s never been one to hold her tongue, and Scarlett Johansson has just released a long-awaited statement regarding the sexual abuse allegations levied against Woody Allen by daughter Dylan Farrow.

The preggers “We Bought a Zoo” actress slammed Farrow for specifically naming her in her New York Times article last month, along with Emma Stone, Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett and Diane Keaton.

Farrow wrote, “What if I had been your child?” and Scarlett replied, "I think it's irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on. That just feels irresponsible to me."

Johansson, who is a well-known fan of Allen, added, "I don't know anything about it. It would be ridiculous for me to make any kind of assumption one way or the other.”

"I'm unaware that there's been a backlash. I think he'll continue to know what he knows about the situation, and I'm sure the other people involved have their own experience with it. It's not like this is somebody that's been prosecuted and found guilty of something, and you can then go, 'I don't support this lifestyle or whatever.' I mean, it's all guesswork."
