Kate Winslet is defending her decision to star in Woody Allen’s latest film, Wonder Wheel, despite the sex abuse allegations against the acclaimed filmmaker.

“Of course one thinks about it,” Winslet told New York Times. “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.”

In 1992, Allen was accused of sexually abusing his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, who was a child at the time. He has never been charged with a sex crime and he repeatedly denied the allegations.

“Of course, I did not molest Dylan. I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter’s well-being,” Allen wrote in a 2014 piece for the New York Times, blaming his ex Mia Farrow for making false claims. He added, “No one wants to discourage abuse victims from speaking out, but one must bear in mind that sometimes there are people who are falsely accused and that is also a terribly destructive thing. (This piece will be my final word on this entire matter and no one will be responding on my behalf to any further comments on it by any party. Enough people have been hurt.)”

Before Allen wrote that piece, a letter from Dylan Farrow was published by the Times, where she called out those in Hollywood who work with the Oscar-winning director.

“That he got away with what he did to me haunted me as I grew up. I was stricken with guilt that I had allowed him to be near other little girls. I was terrified of being touched by men. I developed an eating disorder. I began cutting myself,” she wrote. “That torment was made worse by Hollywood. All but a precious few (my heroes) turned a blind eye. Most found it easier to accept the ambiguity, to say, ‘who can say what happened,’ to pretend that nothing was wrong. Actors praised him at awards shows. Networks put him on TV. Critics put him in magazines. Each time I saw my abuser’s face — on a poster, on a T-shirt, on television — I could only hide my panic until I found a place to be alone and fall apart.”

During her interview with the Times, Winslet also compared working with Allen to the time she spent with Roman Polanski on the 2011 film Carnage. Polanski fled the country in 1978 after he pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old girl.

“Woody Allen is an incredible director,” Winslet said. “So is Roman Polanski. I had an extraordinary working experience with both of those men, and that’s the truth.”

Wonder Wheel will premiere as the closing night film at the New York Film Festival on Oct. 14, before opening in theaters Dec. 1.

Jul 25, 17 Ali   Wonder Wheel Comments Off on Woody Allen Gets Closing Slot NY Film Fest With ‘Wonder Wheel’

Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel looks to have been set to close out the 55th New York Film Festival, running September 28 through October 15. The film, starring Kate Winslet, Juno Temple, Justin Timberlake and James Belushi, will go into limited release December 1, with Amazon Studios distributing. Amazon also has Richard Linklater’s Last Flag Flying and Todd Haynes’ Wonderstruck in choice spots at the Gotham fest.

Allen’s Café Society premiered at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Wonder Wheel was shot in the writer/director’s home city, returning him to Coney Island, where his alter ego Alvy Singer grew up in the shadow of the Cyclone roller coaster in 1977’s Annie Hall.

Typically, for an Allen film, plot elements of the new film are being kept under tight wraps. A logline for the drama set in the 1950s says that it will contain “larger-than-life characters, lovers, infidelity, and gangsters.” Per usual, Allen wrote the screenplay. NYFF presenter, the Film Society of Lincoln Center, didn’t immediately return emails or telephone calls seeking confirmation. The selection of Wonder Wheel was first reported in The Hollywood Reporter.

Jul 24, 17 Ali   Campaigns, Co-Stars Comments Off on Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet Reunite — to Auction Off a Dinner with Themselves for Charity

People.com shares that you could win dinner with Leo & Kate!

As Titanic turns 20, Jack and Rose are reuniting for a good cause – this time on dry land.

A private dinner with Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet is up for grabs at this year’s auction gala hosted by the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

The annual event, hosted on July 26 in St. Tropez, France, is offering a lucky bidder the chance to have dinner with the friends and former Titanic costars sometime in October or November at a place of their choosing in New York City.

Proceeds from the gala and auction will support the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, which since 2008 has made more than $80 million in grants to environmental causes.

DiCaprio and Winslet’s dinner will also benefit a GoFundMe campaign Winslet has been involved with that aims to help a young mother in the U.K. pay for cancer treatment. Winslet cofounded the Golden Hat Foundation, which benefits children with autism and their families, and also supports regional charities in the U.K. and individuals’ fundraising efforts for cancer treatment.

The typically star-studded event will feature a special performance by Lenny Kravitz. In addition, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo will be honored with the foundation’s “New World Leadership Award” for her “innovative approach to making Paris a model for sustainable urban living and design,” according to a statement from the gala.

Last year, the charity auction raised a record $45 million and featured guests such as Bono, Chris Rock, Mariah Carey, Tobey Maguire, Jonah Hill, Naomi Campbell, Bradley Cooper and Edward Norton.
