Scarlett Johansson defends Woody Allen, will work with him 'anytime'

Ace actor Scarlett Johansson has opened up about working with a filmmaker Woody Allen , expressing his support for him saying that she would be happy to work at any time.

Johansson's comments came as a result of allegations of sexual abuse directed against Allen by his adoptees.

How do I feel about Woody Allen? I love Woody. I believe him and I would work with him anytime, the actor said. The two have earlier worked together in ' Match point ',' Vicky Cristina Barcelona 'and' Scoop '.

The 34-year-old actor shared: I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had many conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he is very direct with me. He maintains his innocence and I believe him.

Speaking of the anger of people and other celebrities towards the 83-year-old director, Johansson said: It's hard because it's a time when people are very excited and understandable.

Things had to get agitated, so people have a lot of passion and strong feelings and are angry, and rightly so. It is an intense moment.

The aftermath of the ultra popular #MeToo movement saw several celebrities, including Freida Pinto , Greta Gerwig , Colin Firth & Mira Sorvino , saying they won't work with Allen again.

However, Allen has consistently denied such accusations, which were first reported during his explosive 1992 separation from Mia Farrow .
