Kate Winslet now “regrets” working with director Woody Allen and producer Harvey Weinstein, the actress said Sunday during the London Critics’ Circle film awards.
Winslet offered a tearful apology for working with Allen and Weinstein in light of the sexual abuse allegations against the Hollywood elites, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The actress starred in “Wonder Wheel,” directed by Allen, who is accused of molesting stepdaughter Dylan Farrow. Winslet also starred in the Weinstein-produced films “Heavenly Creatures” and “The Reader.” Weinstein stands accused of sexual misconduct by more than 80 women.
“It has become clear to me that by not saying anything, I might be adding to the anguish of many courageous women and men. Sexual abuse is a crime,” Winslet said, adding, “While it rests with the rule of law to pass judgment, it lies with all of us to listen to the smallest of voices and to never stop listening.”
Despite previously accolading Allen, Winslet refused to thank Weinstein during her 2009 Oscar acceptance speech, calling him “nasty” in an Oct. 14 interview with the Los Angeles Times.
An Allen-themed musical was also canceled Thursday due to increasing scrutiny over the renowned director’s alleged sexual abuse.
