Susan Sarandon shutting it down. “I have nothing good to say about Woody Allen.”
Woody Allen is a sexual predator who at best seduced his 17-year old step-daughter and at worst molested his child.
What he did is wrong and working with him means you condone his behavior and would rather side with an accused predator than the victim of a sex crime.
People argued a lot about “separating the art from the artist” when Woody Allen’s molestation of his daughter became impossible to ignore. However, here’s the thing: almost all of Woody Allen’s work is about a thinly guised version of him. A lot of it is about some old weird creep having a sexual relationship with a younger, beautiful woman under a clear imbalance of power. How the hell am I supposed to separate the art from the artist?
I have no desire to see Woody Allen make a movie about a professor entering a relationship with his student. I have no desire to hear R. Kelly sing about sex. It’s disgusting. It’s them describing their loathesome crimes through art.
