Mira Sorvino Is "So, So Sorry" She Worked With Woody Allen

Filmmaker Greta Gerwig speaks onstage during the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards

Mira Sorvino said that she grew up admiring Woody Allen's work.

Sorvino said that despite feeling "iced out" after rejecting advances from Harvey Weinstein, as she said in a December New Yorker article, she has received a lot of "goodwill" since a flood of accusations surfaced against the movie mogul.

Sorvino won an Oscar for her performance in his 1995 film, Mighty Aphrodite, but has since re-examined her decision to work with Allen due to Farrow's accusations.

She added: "Dylan Farrow's two different pieces made me realise that I increased another woman's pain, and I was heartbroken by that realisation. For this I also owe an apology to Mia".

Farrow told BuzzFeed that she supports the Time's Up initiative against abuses in Hollywood and beyond, but believes that its participants need to self-reflect on their complicity.

"I am so sorry, Dylan!" she wrote.

The 50-year-old, who went on to win an Oscar for the part, continued, "It is hard to sever ties and denounce your heroes, your benefactors, whom you fondly admired and felt a debt of gratitude toward for your entire career's existence".

Sorvino ends her open letter with the following statement: "I am sorry it has taken me a few weeks to come out in support of you...but it has been a process for me to own this truth and make this irrevocable break".

"I$3 did not look further into the situation, for which I am terribly sorry", she wrote. "But", she writes to Farrow, "this does not excuse my turning a blind eye to your story simply because I wanted desperately for it not to be so". "If this means tearing down all the old gods, so be it", she wrote.

Sorvino continued, "Even if you love someone, if you learn they may have committed these despicable acts, they must be exposed and condemned, and this exposure must have consequences". I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again. Months later, directors such as Peter Jackson and Terry Zwigoff revealed that Weinstein allegedly blacklisted Sorvino from auditioning for roles in "The Lord of the Rings" and "Bad Santa", respectively.

Mira Sorvino and Greta Gerwig have credits in Woody Allen movies, but they never will again, the women say.

Greta Gerwig, director of the 2018 Golden Globes Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy victor, Lady Bird, regrets working with Woody Allen.

She tweeted in response: "Greta, thank you for your voice".

"I know that standing with me against Woody Allen is not easy in this industry. You know, it's something that I've thought deeply about and I care deeply about, and I haven't had an opportunity to have an in-depth discussion where I come down on one side or the other".
