Michael Caine has joined the growing list of actors who say they won’t work with Woody Allen again. He won an Academy Award for his role in the filmmaker’s “Hannah and Her Sisters” and says he doesn’t regret that collaboration, but it appears their working relationship is officially over. Allen has been accused of molesting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, a claim he denies.
“I am a patron of the NSPCC [National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children] and have very strong views about pedophilia,” Caine tells the Guardian in a new interview. “I can’t come to terms with [the allegation], because I loved Woody and had a wonderful time with him. I even introduced him to Mia [Farrow]. I don’t regret working with him, which I did in complete innocence; but I wouldn’t work with him again, no.”
Other actors who say they won’t work with Allen again include Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall, David Krumholtz, and Ellen Page. His next film, “A Rainy Day in New York,” is scheduled to be released later this year.
