Numerous women who have said these things-like Blake Lively, Selena Gomez, and Kate Winslet, the latter of whom continues to actively praise him in interviews on her current award season press tour-have made the decision to work with Allen in the last few years, after Dylan Farrow published her open letter detailing her accusations of the sexual abuse she suffered as a child.

Sorvino said she had spoken in December with Ronan Farrow: "He pointed me toward publicly available details of the case I had ruefully never known of, which made me begin to feel the evidence strongly supported your story".

Dylan Farrow responded to Sorvino on Twitter on Thursday morning, writing that her letter was "beautiful", and she was "overwhelmed".

The "Lady Bird" filmmaker expressed her regret for acting in Allen's 2012 romantic comedy "To Rome with Love".

Allen's daughter Farrow has of the anti-harassment initiative, including Gerwig, Blake Lively, Emma Stone, Cate Blanchett and Scarlett Johansson, for continuing to work with her father. After the publication of Dylan's Los Angeles Times piece, a representative for Allen said, "Dylan Farrow's allegations against Woody Allen, which she first made 25 years ago, have been thoroughly examined by law enforcement officials and child welfare investigators".

Legal sales of recreational marijuana may have begun Monday, but don't expect big changes in the workplace or in public. Cory Gardner of Colorado, one of the first states to legalize recreational grass, expressed a sense of betrayal.

"It is hard to sever ties and denounce your heroes, your benefactors, whom you fondly admired and felt a debt of gratitude toward for your entire career's existence", Sorvino wrote.

The actress, who won an Oscar for starring in Allen's critically acclaimed 1995 film Mighty Aphrodite, has penned an open letter to Farrow for HuffPo. She also referenced Dylan Farrow, Allen's adoptive daughter, who has been outspoken against Allen in recent years and accused him of sexual assault. "It breaks my heart when women and men I admire work with Allen, then refuse to answer questions about it". The female-led story of a young woman (played by Saoirse Ronan) and her turbulent relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf) has emerged supreme at the 75th Golden Globes, bagging a Best Actress trophy for its lead star.

"I am so sorry, Dylan! You know, it's something that I've thought deeply about and I care deeply about, and I haven't had an opportunity to have an in-depth discussion where I come down on one side or the other". "This letter is attractive and I will carry your words with me", Farrow wrote. In addition to Sorvino and Gerwig, actress Ellen Page, and actor, David Krumholtz, have also publicly regretted working with Allen. "I grew up on his movies, and they have informed me as an artists, and I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward".

She tweeted in response: "Greta, thank you for your voice". "Good for him that he goes, because if not, he has to meet me, and I will kill the motherf-er".
