Scarlett Johansson on Woody Allen Scandal: It’s Guesswork

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Movies, Features,

Scarlett JohanssonScarlett Johansson has broken her silence over the Woody Allen scandal.

After Allen's estranged daughter Dylan called out the Match Point actress in an open letter for her assocation with her father (whom she has accused of sexually abusing her as a child), Johansson has made a statement on the issue:

“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... 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... I don’t know anything about it... It would be ridiculous for me to make any kind of assumption one way or the other."

Scarlett's statements come after Alec Baldwin and Cate Blanchett previously responded to Dylan's open letter, in which they were also called out.
