"When I read the Woody Allen script, I thought, oh my God, I can’t do this." — Kate Winslet https://t.co/QmCTf329Zf— New York Times Arts (@nytimesarts) September 6, 2017
After praising Allen who directed her on the upcoming film Wonder Wheel and mentioning her mother was a fan the New York Times interviewer asks Winslet about the sexual assault allegations against Allen:
Of course one thinks about it. But at the same time, I didn’t know Woody and I don’t know anything about that family. As the actor in the film, you just have to step away and say, I don’t know anything, really, and whether any of it is true or false. Having thought it all through, you put it to one side and just work with the person. Woody Allen is an incredible director. So is Roman Polanski. I had an extraordinary working experience with both of those men, and that’s the truth.
