Javier Bardem Supports Woody Allen and Says He’s ‘Absolutely Not’ Ashamed They Worked Together

Javier Bardem Supports Woody Allen and Says He’s ‘Absolutely Not’ Ashamed They Worked Together
Javier Bardem is standing by Woody Allen amid industry backlash against the writer-director over a sexual abuse accusation made by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. Bardem spoke with French publication Paris Match and said he is “absolutely not” ashamed to have worked with Allen on the 2008 comedy-drama “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.”

“If there was evidence that Woody Allen was guilty, then yes, I would have stopped working with him, but I have doubts,” Bardem said about the allegation and Hollywood’s critical reaction to Allen over the last several months.

Farrow has long accused Allen of molesting her as a child. Her allegation resurfaced in the height of the #MeToo movement. Allen denies the accusation is true. Many actors who worked with Allen have spoken out against the director and/or have expressed regrets over working with him, including Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, Griffin Newman, and Hayley Atwell.

Pedro Almodóvar Announces 21st Film: ‘Dolor y Gloria’ to Star Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas
Pedro Almodóvar is getting the band back together. The Spanish filmmaker will reunite with two of his biggest former stars, Penélope Cruz and Antonio Banderas, for his next feature, “Dolor y Gloria.” The movie is Almodóvar’s first since 2016’s “Julieta” and marks his 21st feature overall. Unlike many of Almodóvar’s most famous works, “Dolor y Gloria” will center around a male protagonist.

The film stars Banderas as a movie director looking back on his iconic career. According to Almodóvar (via Variety), the movie recounts “a series of meetings, some physical, others remembered decades later, of a film director now in his twilight years.” Some of the people the director encounters are his first loves, his mother, and actors with whom he worked with from the 1960s through the 1980s.

Penélope Cruz is gearing up for a return to Cannes with Asghar Farhadi’s Everybody Knows, and it looks like she’ll be back again next year.

In what sounds like his take on Fellini’s seminal classic 8 1/2, Almodovar will explore “creation, both cinematographic and theatrical, and the difficulty of separating creation from one’s own life.” As reported by Variety, it will also explore “the first loves,

Asghar Farhadi to Open Cannes 2018 With ‘Everybody Knows,’ Starring Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem
The 2018 Cannes Film Festival will open with the world premiere of Asghar Farhadi’s Spanish-language drama “Everybody Knows,” starring Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem. The decision makes the drama the second Spanish-language film to open Cannes after Pedro Almodóvar’s “Bad Education” in 2004. The opening selection was first reported by Variety.

Throwback Photos of Donatella Versace for Those Who Forgot What She Used to Look Like!

Over the years, Donatella Versace has become a PSA on what not to do when it comes to plastic surgery. However, the fashion designer has not always looked like a bronzed wax figure. Before going under the knife, the now 62-year-old had a youthful glow about her — and it wasn't just because of her obsession with tanning beds. Donatella has never been outspoken about her rumored cosmetic procedures, but she did open up about her beauty routine in 2013. "I'm not like this genetically," she said at the Vogue Festival. "I use tons of cream and take care of my hair and skin." She went on to admit to Botox, but "only on my face," adding, "I stopped working with a personal trainer as he wouldn't let me smoke."
