Jorge Lanata entrevistó a Woody Allen en Nueva York

Veteran Hollywood film director Woody Allen says he should be a “poster boy” for #MeToo, given his decades of experience in the film industry, and praised the anti-sexual harassment movement.

“I’m a big advocate of the #MeToo movement,” Allen said during an interview with Argentinian news program Periodismo Para Todos on Monday. “I feel when they find people who harass innocent women and men, it’s a good thing that they’re exposing them. But you know, I should be the poster boy for the #MeToo movement. Because I have worked in movies for 50 years.”

“I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one — big ones, famous ones, ones starting out — have ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all,” Allen continued. “I’ve always had a wonderful record with them.”

The “Manhattan” director was recently the subject of a decades-old sexual assault allegation by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow, who accused him of molestation when she was seven years old. Allen has vehemently denied the allegations, while also receiving backing from his other adopted child Moses Farrow.
