Farrow spoke out on Twitter after Johansson defended the 83-year-old filmmaker, with whom she has collaborated on films like “Match Point,” “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and “Scoop”, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter
“Because if we’ve learned anything from the past two years it’s that you definitely should believe male predators who ‘maintain their innocence’ without question,” Farrow wrote on Twitter. “Scarlett has a long way to go in understanding the issue she claims to champion.”
In her THR interview, Johansson explained that she believes Allen and talks to him regularly.
“How do I feel about Woody Allen? I love Woody,” she told the outlet. “I believe him, and I would work with him anytime.”
The 34-year-old continued, “I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him.”
“It’s hard because it’s a time where people are very fired up, and understandably,” Johansson added. “Things needed to be stirred up, and so people have a lot of passion and a lot of strong feelings and are angry, and rightfully so. It’s an intense time.”
Other actors, including Freida Pinto, Greta Gerwig, Colin Firth, and Mira Sorvino, have publicly committed to never working with Allen again.
Representatives for Johansson did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
