Justin Timberlake Criticised For Working With Woody Allen

After posting a photo of himself and wife Jessica Biel wearing black in support of #TimesUp on both Twitter and Instagram, the singer faced serious backlash from fans for his work with director Woody Allen. "Not just because he was a great thinker, because I have been known to have some reasonably profound insights myself, although mine invariably revolve around two eighteen-year-old cocktail waitresses and some rope handcuffs", reads the notes in a draft of short story "My Apology", according to Morgan. Golden Globes nominees Emma Stone, Sam Rockwell - who won Best Supporting Actor for his performance in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, a film on the aftermath of sexual violence - and Hugh Jackman have been in Woody Allen movies and Timothee Chalamet is in his new movie, A Rainy Day In New York, releasing this year.

'But I have to wonder - is time really up now? "They are beneath real men", Krumholtz added.

Yesterday, Farrow called out actresses Blake Lively and Cate Blanchett for working with Allen, despite being vocal opponents of sexual harassment and assault. I thought things would change.

Dylan reflected on how she made the decision to publish the letter following Allen being awarded the Cecil B. DeMille accolade for lifetime achievement "detailing the abuse [she] sustained at the hands of Woody Allen".

"I fully support women taking a stand, linking arms with other women (and men), advocating on behalf of one another to effect change not only in the entertainment industry but in the world at large", Farrow said in a statement to BuzzFeed on Monday. When the creation of Time's Up was announced, Timberlake tweeted: "No more accepting sexual harassment and inequality at work as normal". I struggle with how a powerful force like Justin Timberlake can claim to be in awe of the strength of women and stand with them at this #MeToo moment and then in the next breath say that working with Woody Allen is a "dream come true".

"Of all the famous men who ever lived, the one I would most like to have been was Socrates".

Mia Farrow and Woody Allen are pictured here together in 1985.

I know that many of us watching this from the outside are infuriated by this hypocrisy. Am I a woman who matters too?' Dylan replied.
