Kate Winslet kiiiiind of regrets working with Woody Allen

Kate Winslet refuses to name Woody Allen as she admits to 'bitter regrets' Kate Winslet has admitted her bitter regret at working with certain filmmakers

"Sexual abuse is a crime", she added.

Many of Allen's collaborators have now distanced themselves from him, with Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig confirming she will never work with him again.

When asked about her history of working with Allen, Winslet has famously said things like, "It's just a hard discussion" and "I think on some level Woody [Allen] is a woman" - that is, when she's not refusing to discuss Allen all together.

"It has become clear to me that by not saying anything, I might be adding to the anguish of many courageous women and men", she continued.

A visibly emotional Winslet said: "It nearly feels uncomfortable to receive an award at such a time, but being up here does give me the opportunity to say some things that matter to me".

"Of course one thinks about [the allegations]".

Alec Baldwin criticizes Dylan Farrow's Woody Allen sexual assault claims
Allen has always maintained his innocence and said the story of abuse was ingrained in Dylan's mind by his ex-wife, Mia Farrow . Like Mayella in To Kill A Mockingbird , her tears/exhortations are meant to shame you into belief in her story.

After months of what was largely radio silence on a hot button issue (with the exception of a few vague defenses), Kate Winslet finally addressed the elephant in the room - her controversial past collaborations with disgraced men like Woody Allen, Harvey Weinstein, and Roman Polanski - without naming them.

Colin Firth, who appeared opposite Emma Stone in Allen's 2014 movie "Magic In The Moonlight", said he will not work with him again.

Timothée Chalamet, set to star in the upcoming "A Rainy Day in NY", recently pledged to donate his entire salary to Time's Up, The LGBT Center in NY and RAINN, while "Lady Bird" director Greta Gerwig promised to never work with Allen again.

A month later, Winslet said she'd rather not have "a hard discussion" regarding the allegations against Allen, but changed her tune somewhat in November, when she told the Los Angeles Times, "At the end of the day, you look at the facts".

The London Critics' Circle picked up the theme of Winslet's speech by handing the film-of-the-year award to Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Martin McDonagh's controversial drama about a woman seeking vengeance for her daughter who was raped and murdered.

Farrow published an open letter in The New York Times in 2014 alleging that Allen molested her in an attic when she was seven and accusing Hollywood of turning a "blind eye". He has denied all allegations of non-consensual sex.
