Harvey Weinstein’s years-long covert campaign to eventually become the Most Reviled Man in America has just about come to fruition. You can tell you’ve made it to the Creep Hall Of Fame when other famed creeps are expressing their condolences.
It’s not exactly a surprise if an unsettling allegation is made by one of Woody Allen’s children. Except in an uncharacteristic turn of events, the latest allegations to be made by a child of Woody has nothing to do with their dad. People says that Moses Farrow, the adopted son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, has accused his mother of emotional and physical abuse, and “brainwashing.”
When it was rumored about a year ago that Kate Winslet would be starring in Woody Allen’s latest talks-too-fast flustered people film, it isn’t a stretch to say that some people raised their eyebrows like, “Girl, him?“. As it turned out, the rumors were true, and she was filming Wonder Wheel with Justin Timberlake. Again, one can assume someone pulled Kate aside and asked, “Do you need me to Google ‘Woody Allen’ for you? Because I can, but, like, heads up – the results will be gross.”
Kate recently admitted during an interview with The New York Times to promote The Mountain Between Us and Wonder Wheel that, yes, she’s totally aware of Woody Allen’s completely vomit-triggering alleged reputation. Just like how she was completely familiar with Roman Polanski’s alleged reputation too. Wow, okay, Kate – you didn’t have to go there, but I guess that’s where we’re going now.
There are Hollywood types who would get the dry heaves and hiss “hard pass” if their agents were to suggest working on a project with Woody Allen. And then there are others, who are like “What repeat allegations of repulsive pedo behavior? Sign me up!” The list is shockingly long, and it’s got a couple new names to add to it.
The Hollywood Reporter says that Selena Gomez has signed on to Woody Allen’s next project for Amazon Studios. She joins a cast that also includes Elle Fanning and Timothée Chalamet (from Call Me by Your Name). Nothing else about the film is known, like if Woody Allen scrapped the usual contract and asked Selena to agree to the film by signing his favorite issue of V Magazine instead.
Woody’s latest movie with Amazon Studios, Wonder Wheel (aka the movie starring Justin Timberlake and Kate Winslet), is set to premiere at the New York Film Festival in October. This next film will probably get underway after all of that.
Selena has said recently she can’t wait to be not famous. She picked the wrong project if privacy is what she’s after. You don’t exactly fly under the radar when you sign on to work with Hollywood’s creepy uncle. But I’m sure her publicist has already prepared for it. Like asking Kristen Stewart’s publicist for tips on navigating those awkward conversations about choosing to work with Woody. And maybe her publicist can hire a gag-suppression coach to help Selena through the awkward part of the press tour where Woody inevitably grosses everyone out by admitting he cast her after watching her on his second favorite Disney Channel show, Wizards of Waverly Place.
During the same interview with Variety in which she hates on the name Supergirl, Miley Cyrus made it clear again that she’s on Team Woody Allen Is A Good Guy. Miley has said previously to Vanity Fair that she loved working with Ol’ Man Grossness on his Amazon show Crisis in Six Scenes because he was a great director and that she learned a lot from him. Now she’s telling Variety about the Woody behind the camera. Miley loved that Woody too, because they’re practically the same person. And she doesn’t give two beady-eyed high-waisted khaki shits if you’re side-eyeing her hard right now.
And she thinks Roman Polanski is AH-MAH-ZING. Limousine hippie Miley Cyrus is the star of Woody Allen’s upcoming series for Amazon, Crisis in Six Scenes. Vanity Fair caught up with the anti-red carpet activist at the show’s premiere in NYC on Thursday night. Presumably not on a red carpet. Perhaps it was taupe, or they stood on the tile. Nevertheless, Miley loves her some tiny daughter-marrier.
