The ‘Titanic’ star Kate Winslet spoke to Vanity Fair and said she regretted working with the controversial filmmakers Woody Allen and Roman Polanski.
As known, the two filmmakers accuse of misconduct and sexual assault. The actress, who worked with Allen on ‘Wonder Wheels’ and Polanski on ‘Carnage,’ expressed her regrets over the collaborations she made with both directors:
“It’s like, what the f*** was I doing working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski. It’s unbelievable to me now how those men were held in such high regard, so widely in the film industry and for as long as they were. It’s f***ing disgraceful.”
Then the actress said she could not turn back the clock and added that she had to take responsibility for the fact that she had worked with them both.
The recipient of British Academy Film, Academy, Emmy, and Grammy Awards, Winslet also stated:
“I’m grappling with those regrets, but what do we have if we aren’t able to just be f***ing truthful about all of it?”
As remember, Woody Allen was accused of abusing his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow; as for Roman Polanski was arrested and charged with abuse.
However, in a 2017 New York Times interview, the 44-year-old actress did not express any regrets about her career choices, including working with Allen and Polanski. She said:
“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. Woody Allen is an incredible director. So is Roman Polanski. I had extraordinary working experience with both of those men, and that’s the truth.”
