With the mountain of sexual assault and harassment allegations piling up against the men of Hollywood, it’s no surprise that some allegations made years ago are being dredged up again. In 1992, Dylan Farrow, Woody Allen’s daughter, accused him of molesting her when she was seven years old. Over the course of the last 25 years, Dylan has been both supported and reviled, but no charges have ever been brought against the 82 year old director, who has continuously denied the allegations. Now, many celebrities are coming forward expressing their regret at having worked with the auteur and apologizing for not listening to Dylan over the years. Many of Selena’s co-stars in the upcoming Woody Allen picture “A Rainy Day In New York” have announced that they will be donating their salaries from the project to various charities supporting victims of sexual assault and harassment.
Griffin Newman tweeted last October that he regretted joining the cast of the film, and would be donating his salary to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network.
Rebecca Hall followed up earlier this month posting that she would be donating her salary from the film to Times Up, the legal defense fund, saying QUOTE,
“After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow’s statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones – I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry. Timothée Chalamet, who seems to be in every movie this year, announced yesterday that he, too, would be donating his salary from the film, to RAINN, Times Up and the LGBT Center in New York City.
Seeing so many celebrities denounce Woody Allen has caused fans to call for both Miley Cyrus and Selena Gomez to do the same. (In case you forgot, Miley worked with Allen on an Amazon series last year.) In a recent post on Selena’s mom’s instagram, a fan requested that she make her daughters apologize for the Woody Allen film. (
Surprising, Mandy responded, saying QUOTE “Sorry, No one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to. I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click. Her team are amazing people. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears.” This comment came as a big surprise to Selena’s fans as it implied that this wasn’t a decision that her team had pushed her to do, which had been highly speculated by fans. Many thought that the decision had to do with her team’s plan to further the star’s acting career before she turned back to music.
Now, everyone is both upset with Selena for having made the choice to work with Woody Allen and with her mother for having thrown her under the bus.
Wooof, that’s a lot. Well, now I want to know what you think of all of this? Was it right of Selena’s mother to out her daughter like that or did her fans deserve to know?

25 thoughts on “Selena Gomez IGNORED Mom's Advice To Not Work With Woody Allen

  1. Leave Woody Allen alone. Mia Farrow made her daughter do this to get revenge. ANYONE can be metooed nowadays. It's so unfair to ruin a person's life when there are no evidences of the commited crime and it's just one's word against the other's

  2. Leave Selena alone right now. She has been through a lot, and will go through more in the future. Lupus is a terrible disease. But I do hope the kidney transplant has helped, and the chemo–and whatever she tries to beat this disease. I am sure she will have more to say later. Right now, she has her own life to think about.

  3. Seems to me that Selena Gomez is the voice of reason here. Since the Age of Enlightenment, our juridical system is based on the principle 'innocent until proven guilty', and we are ALL the better for it.

    The case against Woody Allen has been investigated thoroughly, by multiple expert parties, the result of which was that the accusers and prosecutor chose to NOT go to trial. No evidence of any wrongdoing was found, and an independent report (Yale) was very positive for Allen and very negative for Farrow. So there never was any formal accusation, no trial, and no verdict. Twenty-six years later, no new evidence has come to light, no other presumed victims have shown up.

    There is a fair chance that this was a false allegation, amidst an ugly divorce. Ask any family lawyer, and (s)he will tell you that allegations of sexual abuse are VERY common in 'ugly divorce' cases, when one angry partner wants to hurt the other partner where it hurts the most: the children. Recent research have shown that over 80% of theses allegations are unfounded.

    So there is no serious foundation for a case against Woody Allen. Society should consider the man 'innocent' as he's not proven guilty.

    Yet what we see happening now, in the wake of the #MeToo and #Timesup movements – which are in themselves commendable, and necessary – is that some people jump that bandwagon for the wrong reasons. It would be a perversion of these movements if they would create innocent victims instead of avoiding them.

    The present process of "socially outcasting" someone who has NOT been proven to have committed a crime, and have him/her punished by the common people, is commonly called a 'witch hunt'. We've had some experience with witch hunts, several centuries ago. We've stopped with that tradition. For good reasons.

    So I am happy to read that Selena Gomez is an independent thinker who won't bow under the social pressure of witch hunts. She is to be commended for it, rather than criticized.

    As for Dylan Farrow, I really do feel sorry for her, and I do believe that she is the victim of parental abuse. But I'm thinking about the other parent here, who ruined Dylan's life for egotistical reasons. It is a terrible crime that the other parent has continued to this day. Why don't we dare name it for what it is?

    Please educate yourself, and read what Dylan's older brother Moses has to say about what went on in the Farrow household:

  4. I have a feeling that no matter what Selena Gomezs mother says, Selena is going to do the opposite. she's going through that phase. stupid girl

  5. I don't like the fact that Selena is working with him but she can if she wants to but, Selena's mom can't say publicly "Oh I had a long talk with her about it." You don't do that to your daughter. Keep everything inside your house. Mandy is so rude and disrespectful.

  6. it really wasn't right for her mom to out her like that. she is a grown woman in this industry, let her do what she wants. i can obviously understand where her mom is coming from, no mom that i know would want their kids working w and accused child molester. but at the end of the day, she's an adult, she'll learn. but it wasn't any of the public's business. but i do wish that selena would give a statement and maybe donate like the other actors. but, like I said, we can't make her do anything. it's just a very touchy subject, and I hope sel and her mom can work out their issues.

  7. This is why I give major respect and props to timothee chalamet since he is donating all the salary he is making in this film to the Times Up, LGBTQ, and RAINN movement. He couldn't get out of the film because of contractual issues but he's doing the right thing. Selena should have said and done the same thing.

  8. I'm happy Demi took a different path out of that friendship.. no shade, but this girl would make me crazy if I wasn't already there. She keep getting back with Justin despite mother wishes ( I get it she is an adult y'all .. im just saying) she worked with woody despite mom advice.

    Maybe, just maybe Gomez.. your mama Actaully does know best. She keeps putting herself in situations that will later fireback on her.. is lupus deadly? Because if so I would think relieving stress should be too priority. And this backlash will bring stress upon her. She knew better, but chose wrong.

  9. The sad thing is, when you don't know whether allegations are true or not, it is hard to do anything. In Germany if you claim someone committed a crime when you can't prove it, you are putting a target on your back for ruining someone's carreer and making wrongful claims, which is a crime in itself. You might also have to compansate for their missed business oportunities. Plus, would you turn down a job you really want to do, bc the job itself is cool over 25 year old allegations that were sadly never proven?

    While I have a big problem with hypocricy from celebs, we cannot expect them to bring justice, when the legal system is unable to do so. It is for us as customers to choose as well whether we want to watch a film by woody allen or not.
