Most people in Hollywood either defend alleged child raping tape worm Woody Allen (see: Woody Allen’s forever homegirl Diane Keaton) or brush off the allegations as “shit you read in the Weekly World News next to a story about how Ted Cruz is really Bat Boy in a melting Dick Tracy mask” (see: dried drool stain Kristen Stewart), but Susan Sarandon is not most people. Susan shit on Woody Allen again. And I know, using “Ted Cruz is really Bat Boy” as an example of a crazy rumor doesn’t work, because that’s probably 100% fact.
When Dylan Farrow accused Woody Allen of sexually abusing her as a child in an open letter to the world, Susan said in an interview with The Daily Beast that she had “issues” with him because of his creepy ways. And at a Cannes Film Festival event yesterday, Susan continued to spit at Woody. During the Kering Women in Motion Talk, which focused on the 25th anniversary of Thelma and Louise, Susan was asked what she thought about Woody Allen swatting away Ronan Farrow’s op-ed piece. Susan kept her thoughts to herself at first, but eventually said what no other actor in the game will dare to say. via The Guardian
Sarandon at first appeared to shut it down: “I have nothing good to say about Woody Allen, so I don’t think we should go there.”
Pressed to elaborate, Sarandon said: “I think he sexually assaulted a child and I don’t think that’s right … It’s gotten very quiet in here, but that’s true.”
Susan went there, but she should’ve went all the way there. She should’ve pulled her hair back, asked Geena Davis to hold her piss yellow pearl necklace (Side note: That Chlamydia pearl necklace needs to visit the free clinic.) and gone totally in. You can’t say, “I have nothing good to say about Woody Allen,” and then not say it all. We all want to hear every word of it. Susan was at the Cafe Society premiere, so she should’ve said it then to Woody’s face. There’s still time, Susan. Make that turtle retreat back into his shell! Throw salt on that sail! Get that trick, Susan!
And here’s more of Thelma and Louise at yesterday’s panel:
