Director Woody Allen said in a new interview that he doesn't care if he never works in Hollywood again, and indicated he should be the poster boy for the "Me Too" movement despite allegations of sexual abuse leveled by his adult daughter, Dylan Farrow.

In an interview with France24 published Friday, Allen pointed to his past working relationships with actresses and other female film professionals, arguing they have not resulted in any accusations of sexual misconduct.


“I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses,” Allen told the news outlet. “Not one of them has ever complained about me. Not a single complaint. I’ve worked with, employed women … in every capacity for years and we’ve always paid them exactly the equal of men."

“I’ve done everything that the "Me Too" movement would love to achieve with everyone,” he added.

When asked if he should be the "poster boy" for the "Me Too" movement, Allen responded, "Oh, I should be!"

He went on to say that all of his films are produced in New York or places besides Hollywood, and that the effects of the "Me Too" movement have not and would not damage his career.

“I’ve never worked in Hollywood. I’ve always worked in New York. It doesn’t matter to me for a second," Allen told France24.

"If tomorrow nobody would finance my films and nobody would finance my theater plays or nobody would publish my books, I’d still get up and write because that’s what I do. So I will always work. What happens to it commercially is another matter. I’ve always worked since I was 16," he added.

In 1992, Farrow accused Allen of sexually assaulting her while he was in a relationship with her mother, Mia Farrow. She has maintained the allegations since then, and she penned an emotional open letter in The New York Times in 2014 describing the abuse and criticizing celebrities who have continued to work with Allen, including actress Scarlett Johansson.

Allen has repeatedly denied Farrow's allegations.

Farrow was involved in a public Twitter dispute with Johansson this week after the actress expressed her faith in Allen's defense of his own conduct in the face of Farrow's allegations.

“If we’ve learned anything from the past two years it’s that you definitely should believe male predators who ‘maintain their innocence’ without question. Scarlett has a long way to go in understanding the issue she claims to champion," Farrow tweeted.
