A day in the life of Scarlett Johansson sounds, frankly, completely exhausting.
The newly pregnant 29-year-old actress has managed to defend Woody Allen against allegations that he molested his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow, justify her decision to stay on as a SodaStream ambassador despite the Israel-based company having a factory in the West Bank, and explain her decision to go full-frontal naked in her latest film – all in one day. It’s basically masterful.
Scar-Jo (who, incidentally, is currently making an extremely attractive child in her belly) has worked with Woody Allen on the films Match Point and Vicky Christina Barcelona. She’s come out saying that Dylan Farrow’s famous New York Times letter, in which she accused Woody of molesting her as a child and appealed to celebrities to denounce him, was “irresponsible”.
“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,” Johansson told The Guardian.
“That just feels irresponsible to me.”
She also, somehow, managed to miss the whole backlash against Woody Allen in the wake of that letter, saying she was “unaware” of it.
“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.”
She added to that vague maxim that Woody has not been charged or convicted of any crime. “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.”
And when she was asked if her own private opinion had changed since the allegations, she responded: “I don’t know anything about it. It would be ridiculous for me to make any kind of assumption one way or the other.”
