Despite coming off weeks of allegations of rape and sexual assault from Hollywood producing mogul Harvey Weinstein’s accusers, the show must go on for the other creeps and pedophiles in Hollywood.
As Hollywood comes to grips with its culture of powerful men sexually harassing and abusing women, Woody Allen’s new film A Rainy Day in New York apparently has some sex scenes between a 40-year-old Judd Law and a teenaged actress.
Here are details of the plot from Page Six, which first reported the news:
In scenes just filmed, a character played by Rebecca Hall accuses 44-year-old actor Jude Law’s character of having sex with a 15-year-old “concubine.” In the scene, the so-called concubine — played by Elle Fanning (19 in real life) — acknowledges her relationship with Law’s much-older character, but then protests that she is 21 years old. After a discussion about his infidelity, Fanning’s character then asks Law, “Were all these women for pleasure, or were you researching a project?”
Allen has worked with Weinstein on several projects, including the Oscar-winning Mighty Aphrodite. Allen said initially “the whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved.”The 81-year-old director recently said he hoped the sexual assault scandal surrounding Harvey Weinstein doesn’t “lead to a witch hunt atmosphere, a Salem atmosphere, where every guy in an office who winks at a woman is suddenly having to call a lawyer to defend himself. That’s not right either.”
What’s ironic is that Allen has faced allegations himself! You’ll remember he sexually molested his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow some 25-years ago. The four-time Oscar-winner denied any wrongdoing, and was never charged by Connecticut authorities with any crime.
Allen ended his long time relationship with actress Mia Farrow, after it was discovered he was having an affair with his then adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn back in 1997.
