    So WA's name has come up a lot this week, which isn't surprising. (A lot of Polanski mentions, too.) So this popped up in my Twitter feed today. The whole thread is quite interesting, and I think indicative of how thinking is changing.)

    At my core, I think we're gonna be OK.

    New essay from Dylan Farrow. Brings her story into the current context. Drags Kate Winslet, Blake Lively, and Greta Gerwig; praises Ellen Page (who worked with WA once but later expressed regret for doing so), Jessica Chastain, and Susan Sarandon.

    I don't think his enablers are as culpable as him, but I do agree with this point. Like they're not as bad as him, but it's not like they didn't know when they worked with him after the 90s.

    Dylan Farrow is a badass. She has been so brave in the face of not only horrific abuse, but the world rewarding and embracing her abuser for her entire life. She, Mia Farrow and Ronan Farrow are true warriors, and they deserve nothing but respect and support. That is all.

    Well, there’s certainly one Hollywood actress who’s not staying quiet about WA:


    The thread is worth a read, but even better is an article linked in the thread from about four years ago, that shreds the logic behind his statements about Mia, Dylan, and Soon-Yi.

    It's about time we remove the "probably" from the title of this thread already.

    Ellen Pompeo gave him a royal dressing down as well, which makes me love her even more.

    Fuck. I didn’t know Ellen Pompeo was so hardcore. And funny, too! I’m going to have to check out her Twitter more often.

    Woody really is one of the creepiest people on the face of the planet.

    I read an interesting point last night: people believed Ronan in about half a second about Weinstein, but still don't believe him about Woody. I mean, not EVERYONE, but Hollywood types. It's like Harvey was past the point of helping with careers, but Woody can still win you an Oscar so pretend it never happened.

    I honestly do think his “invulnerability” is starting to break apart, though.

    Dylan Farrow Is Not Going To Let Hollywood Forget Its Support Of Woody Allen

    It talks about how Lively and Timberlake wore the pins, but work with Allen and say how good he is, among others. They're singled out for working recently AND being so vocal about wearing the pins and stuff.

    “It’s of course particularly hard for me as a survivor of sexual abuse to know that for these particular individuals I am not part of the 'every woman' they stand for,” Farrow said in her statement. “I seem to remain secondary to their ambition, which undermines the powerful and embracing message they are trying to send.”
    I found this quote very moving.

    Great article; thanks for posting. I followed the link to Dylan’s Twitter, and I found this:

    As always, satire that cuts to the truth.

    Who’s next? It had better be Timothée Chalamet. If he wants any chance at Best Actor, he’d better be searching his soul right about now.
