Penélope Cruz 'Not Clear' About Woody Allen Sexual Abuse Allegations

Penélope Cruz 'Not Clear' About Woody Allen Sexual Abuse Allegations
Penélope Cruz is speaking out about the decades-old sexual abuse allegations against Woody Allen.

“The only answer that I can give you with common sense that is not about a headline is, the case has to be looked at again,” Cruz told Vanity Fair at the 11th annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic at New Jersey’s Liberty State Park on Saturday.

“The important thing is, if there is a case anywhere in the world that isn’t clear, then why not look at it again? I am in favor of that,” she added.

Woody Allen Says He Should Be 'Poster Boy' for the #MeToo Movement

Woody Allen Says He Should Be 'Poster Boy' for the #MeToo Movement
Woody Allen is wading deep into the conversation surrounding the #MeToo movement that has rocked Hollywood in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal — by saying he should be its “poster boy.”

The 82-year-old director told Argentinian news program Periodismo Para Todos that he was a “big advocate” of the #MeToo movement, according to Quartz.

“I feel when they find people who harass innocent women and men, it’s a good thing that they’re exposing them,” he explained. “But you know I, I should be the poster boy for the Me Too movement. Because I have worked in movies for 50 years.

Penélope Cruz Says She Spent Months in ‘Terrifying Pain’ for Cannes Opener ‘Everybody Knows’

Penélope Cruz Says She Spent Months in ‘Terrifying Pain’ for Cannes Opener ‘Everybody Knows’
This story about Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem and “Everybody Knows” appeared in TheWrap’s magazine’s Cannes issue.

On the day that Penélope Cruz ended up in an ambulance on the set of “Everybody Knows,” she found out just what kind of director Asghar Farhadi is.

In the film, the opening-night attraction at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Cruz plays a woman whose teenage daughter abruptly disappears under mysterious circumstances during a wedding celebration. She spends most of the film in a state of panic and desperation, enlisting the help of an old flame played by her real-life husband, Javier Bardem.

“All of my scenes were very intense,” Cruz told TheWrap. “In one scene I have a panic attack in the car, and I ended up in an ambulance myself. It was just from hyperventilation and from my blood sugar going very high from the stress of the scene. I remember getting out of the ambulance, and Asghar made sure I was Ok.”

She paused. “And then he asked me for one more take.”

Cruz started laughing as she described a director so devoted to his film that he asked for another take from an actress who’d just required medical treatment. “I know he was worried about me, and that was the most important thing,” she insisted. “But after that, he wanted one more. And I never felt that he was crossing the line. He was always very respectful, but of course he went for the truth.”

Bardem added that Farhadi had an uncanny ability to ferret out that truth even though he shot his film in Spanish, a language he doesn’t speak. “He knows when you’re lying,” he said of the director, who used two translators on the set. “You can be in the middle of a very emotional scene, and he will show up and the translator will say, ‘Your eyes are lying. Please don’t act.’ And f—, he is right. He knows it, he feels it. Maybe it was a pause, maybe it was a word. He doesn’t know the language, but he knows that the words were not organically said.”

In many ways, the notion of truth was what drew both Cruz and Bardem to Farhadi, the Iranian director whose last three films include two Oscar winners in the Best Foreign Language Film category: 2011’s “A Separation” and 2015’s “The Salesman,” both studies of families stretched to the breaking point by secrets and class and societal tensions.

“I saw ‘A Separation,’ and like millions of other people I was blown away by the quality of the film, and by how pure it is in every sense,” said Bardem. “When I saw it, and when I saw [2009’s] ‘About Elly’ before that, I was thoroughly moved by the truth and the human quality he brings to his movies.”

Cruz agreed. “‘A Separation’ is one of my favorite movies,” she said. “It’s like you’re watching life — you don’t see anybody acting, any tricks, any lies. It’s like a piece of life that he puts up there without judgment.”

On the heels of “A Separation,” Farhadi met with Bardem and said he was interested in making a film in Spain and would like Bardem to be part of it. Later, he separately went to Cruz and had the same conversation.

The couple, who had gotten married in 2010 and had the first of their two children in 2011, had made a few films together, including 1992’s “Jamón Jamón” — Bardem’s first starring role, in which a teenaged Cruz also appeared — and Woody Allen’s 2008 comedy “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” for which Cruz won the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award a year after Bardem had won his own Best Supporting Actor Oscar for “No Country for Old Men.”

Despite those projects, though, they tended to work separately. It’s a coincidence, Cruz said, that this film appears only a year after they also acted together in “Loving Pablo,” in which he played drug lord Pablo Escobar and she was journalist Virginia Vallejo, Escobar’s lover.

“It’s delicate, putting ourselves in front of a camera together,” said Bardem. “We don’t want to be doing something that is not worth the time that we are going to be spending together on it. We get along great on screen and we work together very well, but we don’t want to do it just because. It has to be special.”

But they were both eager to work with Farhadi, so they jumped aboard the project that was subsequently postponed when the director decided that he didn’t want to follow his 2013 Paris-set movie “The Past” with another film made outside his native Iran.

“We knew that he wanted to do something else in Iran, and ‘The Salesman’ was a priority for him,” said Bardem. “But that gave him time for writing and changing and being more specific in ‘Everybody Knows.’

“You have to be careful when you are dealing with delicate material about relationships, characters, and also a culture that is foreign to you. As he learned more and comprehended the habitat, the way we speak and relate to each other, he started to add many details.”

The story that emerged featured Cruz as Laura, a mother who returns from her home in Argentina to her hometown in Spain for the wedding of her sister. Bardem plays Paco, a onetime farmhand with whom she had a lengthy relationship in her teens. He’s now a landowner who helped her out by buying some of her family’s property, though some relatives think he got an unfair break on the price.

The tangled history of the two characters, which emerges as they race to find her daughter, is laden with secrets. Some come to light over the course of the movie, and some are never really as secret as Laura and Paco think. But in creating the shared history of the characters, Bardem said, his own decade-long relationship with Cruz was in fact an impediment rather than an aid.

“You have to clear the slate,” he said. “You go through your day as the father and the mother of these beautiful kids you have, and then you have to undo all of that to get into the fiction. You have to embody that fictional character — the way he sees the world, the way he treats others. And the moment you do that, you start to see the other person differently.

“There are a couple of scenes that are very intense, one in particular where we talk about how we were in the past, and nothing of us is in there. It’s imagining, working, creating something that doesn’t exist, even though the emotions are real and the bodies are our bodies.”

The shoot had other challenges, not least of which was explaining to the famously workaholic Farhadi how they do things in Spain. “I think ‘The Salesman’ was shot for 60 days in a row without one day off,” Bardem said. “And when he got the idea that in Spain we have weekends off, and even if we work on Saturdays we only have a half day, it took him a while to adjust.

“He said, ‘Why do we have to take a break? It’s better to go with the flow.’ We were laughing, and we said, ‘We know you are capable of doing this, but in Spain we need to stop! We need a siesta, we need a good glass of wine!’ And by the end of the shoot he loved it.”

For a three-week rehearsal period, Bardem said the director put his actors in many different settings that were not in the script as a way of fleshing out the world and making sure that they knew exactly how the characters would respond to everything.

“By the time we get to the set, we have put the characters in every possible situation,” he said. “But he won’t ever ask you go to a place where you aren’t comfortable or you feel excruciating pain.”

Then again, excruciating pain might be an accurate description of the journey made by Cruz’s character. “The shooting was four months long, and we were lucky that Asghar is such an easy person to be around,” she said. “But it was a very demanding character — I think the most difficult I’ve ever had to do.

“My character is happy at the beginning of the movie, but in everything else, she is desperate and going through a very deep and terrifying kind of pain. I was there every day for months. And my engine, my strength, came from thinking about, feeling for all the mothers that have feared losing their children from illness or war or situations like the one in the movie.

“This was a personal homage to those women, and that gave me the strength every day to do it. I didn’t even talk to Asghar about that, but it was my secret nutrition for everyday survival.”

She also had to figure out how to bring new shades to Laura’s desperation. “She’s always in a state of pain and panic, but I tried to bring different kinds of energy, from panic to fear to the loss of hope to getting back some hope,” she said. “I tried to find different colors in each situation.

“I was playing somebody who had to take two very strong sleeping pills to even sleep for four hours without losing her mind. So what is her energy like the morning after, or when she’s been up for two days?”

For Farhadi’s actors, added Bardem, the key to pleasing the demanding director was figuring out how to transcend acting. “He doesn’t want you to play the scene,” he said. “He wants you to go through the experience of the scene. And once you do the scene, he helps you get back on track and leave that experience in the scene. There’s silence, and time to recover.”

When Cruz thought back on the experience that put her in a state of hysteria for months and in an ambulance at one point, she also lavished praise on the director who steered her into those dark places and made sure she found the truths in that darkness. But then she added a succinct note: “By the end,” she said, “I was ready to finish.”

But she and Bardem are also ready for Cannes, which they’ve both been to numerous times before. For Bardem, the pleasures of heading to the Croisette with “Everybody Knows” are numerous.

“What a great honor it is for any actor on Earth to open the greatest cinema festival in the world,” he said. “And to do it along with Asghar Farhadi and your wife, it doesn’t get any better than this.”

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.

Javier Bardem ‘Shocked’ Over Woody Allen Treatment
Javier Bardem is “shocked” by the treatment of Woody Allen and said he has “doubts” about the longstanding allegations of sexual misconduct against the filmmaker.

In an interview with French newspaper Paris Match, the actor, who starred in Allen’s 2008 film “Vicky Cristina Barcelona,” said he’s “absolutely not” ashamed to have worked with him.

“If there was evidence that Woody Allen was guilty, then yes, I would have stopped working with him, but I have doubts,” Bardem said, according to People. “I am very shocked by this sudden treatment. Judgments in the states of New York and Connecticut found him innocent. The legal situation today is the same as in 2007.”

Several stars of Allen’s films have publicly said that they would not work with the director again in the wake of resurfaced allegations of sexual assault by his adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow, and her mother, Mia Farrow. Among those are “Wonder Wheel” actor David Krumholtz, who said he “deeply” regrets working with the filmmaker on his most recent film, calling it one of his “most heartbreaking mistakes.”

Greta Gerwig also said she will never work for Allen again and wouldn’t have starred in his 2012 movie “To Rome With Love” had she known about the accusations against him. Peter Sarsgaard, who starred in Allen’s 2013 film “Blue Jasmine,” said he would turn down another chance to work with the director.

Allen has been accused of sexual assault by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow, an allegation for which he was investigated in 1992 but never charged. Allen has denied the allegations, calling it an invention of Farrow’s mother, actress Mia Farrow. They accusations were brought back to the public’s attention when Farrow detailed her experience in an open letter in the New York Times in 2014.

In December, she published a new op-ed in the Los Angeles Times, in which she called out Kate Winslet, Blake Lively and Gerwig for working with Allen amidst the accusations.

A spokesperson for Bardem has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Ecam Pacts With Torino, Rotterdam on First Incubator Projects

Madrid — In a pioneering move, the Ecam Madrid Film School has sealed pacts for movie projects from its startup The Incubator development program to be presented at the Rotterdam Lab and the Torino Film Lab.

The agreements sees up-to-three titles from The Incubator’s first tranche of five feature projects being pitched at next November’s Torino Film Lab Meeting Event, global co-production forum with a special emphasis on up-and-coming directors, and one title presented at the January 2019 Rotterdam Lab, a five-day workshop for emerging producers.

New York Film Review: ‘Wonder Wheel’

New York Film Review: ‘Wonder Wheel’
Woody Allen films now come in three essential flavors, or maybe it just comes down to three levels of quality. Once in a blue jasmine moon, he comes up with an enthralling act of high-wire inspiration, like “Match Point” or “Blue Jasmine,” that proves that he can still be as major as any filmmaker out there. Then there are the quaintly crafted, phoned-in mediocrities, like “Café Society” or “To Rome with Love,” where the jokes feel old and the situations older, like the Woody Allen version of paint by numbers. But then there are the middle-drawer Allen films that still percolate with energy and flair, like “Bullets Over Broadway” or “Vicky Cristina Barcelona.” They’re too baubly and calculated to be great, with each Woody trope locking into place, yet damned if they don’t hold you and even, in their way, add up to something (even if it’s ultimately something minor).

Rebecca Hall Speaks Out Against Harvey Weinstein Sexual Abuse Allegations, Says Reps ‘Protected’ Her From Him
The allegations haven’t stopped against Harvey Weinstein, and neither have the denouncements. In the wake of new reports of alleged sexual abuse and harassment at the hands of the recently fired Weinstein Company head — including stories from actresses like Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow, Rosanna Arquette, Mira Sorvino, and Asia Argento — yet another one of the producer and distributor’s former stars has spoken out against him and made it clear that she stands with his victims. Moreover, she opened up about her own tricky history with Weinstein, and the pervasive sense that he was someone to avoid as a woman in the industry.

Rebecca Hall, who starred in films produced and distributed by The Weinstein Company, including Woody Allen’s 2008’s romantic comedy “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and Stephen Frears’ 2012 gambling dramedy “Lay the Favorite,” spoke to IndieWire this afternoon about the current allegations. “Of course I have something to say about it,

Trailer for “Wonder Wheel” showcases one of Woody Allen’s most visual efforts to date

It’s no secret that these days we get one new Woody Allen movie a year. The thing is, usually it’s been a summer release, piggybacking off of a debut at the Cannes Film Festival. Sometimes in this modern era, they become Oscar winners, like Blue Jasmine, Midnight in Paris, or Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Other times, they become unfairly ignored gems, like Cafe Society. Still other times, they appear like “lesser” Allen works. This year, however, things are a little bit different. This time around with Wonder Wheel, Allen and Amazon Studios skipped Cannes, will instead be the Closing Night Selection at the New York Film Festival, and will instead have a December release, right in the heart of awards season.

Loving Pablo” — starring Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz, whose last on-screen romantic relationship was in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” for which Cruz won an Oscar — also marks the reunion of Spanish director Fernando León de Aranoa and Bardem, whose performance in León’s 2002 Goya-sweeping dramedy “Mondays in the Sun” served as confirmation, if it were needed after “Before Night Falls,” of Bardem’s acting range. Coming after León’s 2015 “A Perfect Day,” a Cannes Directors’ Fortnight player starring Benicio del Toro and Tim Robbins, “Loving Pablo” is a film León and Bardem have wanted to make for more than 14 years.

What will audiences find in this new take on drug lord Pablo Escobar?

The movie offers Pablo Escobar’s story, focused on his 10 years facing extradition. This is told from the perspective of Virginia Vallejo, a journalist who had a close relationship with Escobar and provides highly intimate access to Escobar’s mind.
