Penélope Cruz, like many other Hollywood stars, is coming out to address the allegations of misconduct against the legendary director, Woody Allen. During a chat with reporters from Vanity Fair on Saturday, Penelope said that the only suggestion she can give is for the police to look at the case once again.
“The important thing is, if there is a case anywhere in the world that isn’t clear, why not look at it again?” The actress stated she is in favor of doing that.
Moreover, Cruz, who won an Oscar for her performance in the 2008 film, Vicky Christina Barcelona, might be a little bit biased, mostly because of the fact just mentioned.
Lately, several stars have voiced their opinions on the controversial case, with some condemning him and others saying they would gladly work with him.
Cruz said, “this doesn’t change anything.” What matters, to Penelope, is that the facts of the incident are looked at by the police and investigators again to conclusively close the case once and for all.
Javier Bardem, Cruz’s husband, told Paris Match, a publication from France, that he is in support of Allen and that he isn’t ashamed at all for working with him in Allen’s movie, Vicky Christina Barcelona.
As you may know, Bardem, 49, starred alongside Cruz and Scarlett Johansson in the movie. The actor said he doubts the longstanding accusations of misconduct against him.
Allen, 82, has vehemently denied the allegations over and over again. His daughter, Dylan Farrow, claims that she is a victim of abuse perpetrated by her father. And her mother, Mia Farrow, was often adamant in her criticism of him.
As it was previously reported, Allen faced the allegations for the first time back in 1992 when he and Mia divorced. Ever since then, the accusations creep back up every once in awhile. Bardem says that judgments in the states of New York and Connecticut found him innocent both times.
An investigation conducted by the New York State Child Welfare said there was no conclusive evidence. There wasn’t enough to indict or convict him on any charges at all.
