Michael Caine has joined an ever-growing list of acting talent who have said they'll refuse to work with Woody Allen again.
In an interview with The Guardian published this weekend, Caine - who starred in and won an Oscar for his role in Allen's 1986 film, Hannah And Her Sisters - was asked about the allegations surrounding the director and where or not he'd work with him again. "I am so stunned. I’m a patron of the NSPCC and have very strong views about paedophilia," said Caine.
"I can’t come to terms with it, because I loved Woody and had a wonderful time with him. I even introduced him to Mia (Farrow). I don’t regret working with him, which I did in complete innocence; but I wouldn’t work with him again, no."
Caine introduced Farrow to Allen in 1979 in New York, and the two cohabited until 1992 when Allen began a sexual relationship with Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. Allen has been accused of sexually abusing Dylan Farrow, and called out actors such as Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall and Ellen Page for working with him, despite the fact that allegations have surrounded him since the early '90s.
Allen has denied all allegations against him, and claims that Farrow was coached into making the allegations by Mia Farrow.
