Colin Firth Says He "Wouldn't Work" With Woody Allen Again

The actor joins a growing number of names to have spoken out against the director in recent weeks.

Colin Firth has joined the growing chorus of voices speaking out against Woody Allen. 

"I wouldn't work with him again," the actor told The Guardian on Thursday, just hours after Dylan Farrow had given her first TV interview in which she accused her adoptive stepfather of sexually assaulting her when she was 7 years old, accusations that Allen has repeatedly denied.

Firth starred in Allen's 2013 film Magic in the Moonlight alongside Emma Stone, and adds his name to a number of actors who have worked under the director to have now expressed their regret at doing so, including Rebecca Hall, Timothee Chalamet, Mira Sorvino, Rachel Brosnahan and Greta Gerwig. Hall and Chalamet have both said they would donate their salaries from Allen's upcoming film A Rainy Day in New York to charities. 

Last year, Firth was outspoken about Harvey Weinstein, who produced his Oscar-winning 2010 film The King's Speech, describing him as a "frightening man."
