Susan Sarandon doesn’t want to talk about Woody Allen.
When the 69-year-old actress was asked about the director during the Kering Women in Motion Talk Sunday, she said she she believed he sexually assaulted a child.
“I have nothing good to say about Woody Allen, so I don’t think we should go there,” Sarandon said. “I think he sexually assaulted a child and I don’t think that’s right.” (RELATED: Susan Sarandon: Women Are Being ‘Shamed’ To Dump Bernie For Hillary)
“It’s gotten very quiet in here, but that’s true.”
Allen’s film “Cafe Society” premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last week, and during the opening a French comedian made a joke about his sexual abuse allegations. (RELATED: Woody Allen Finally Responds To Sex Assault Allegations — And He Might Have Made It Worse)
“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.,” Lafitte said.
The joke was apparently a reference to Roman Polanski — who fled to France in 1978 after pleading guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl. (RELATED: This Is How Woody Allen Responded When A Comedian Made A Rape Joke About Him)
