Miley Cyrus totally stood up for Woody Allen in a recent interview, making it clear that, although he’s been accused by his daughter of sexual assault, she’ll NEVER judge the director — and for good reason! Read her honest & inspiring words here to find out why.
Recently cast in Woody Allen‘s, 80, tv series, Crisis in Six Scenes, Miley Cyrus, 23, opened up about working with the director in a recent interview with Variety magazine. And she had NOTHING but good things to say about Woody despite the sexual abuse allegations that have plagued him for decades.
In the publication’s Power of Women issue, which features Miley on its cover, the singer admitted that while she was a fan of the director before she signed on to star in his Amazon series, she would never judge him for ANYTHING — including being accused of sexual assault by his daughter Dylan Farrow, 31. In fact, she truly enjoyed being on his set and even called Woody an “incredible person!”
“I loved working with Woody,” Miley said. “You do like two takes. He just wants to go home and have dinner with his wife.” When asked if she was aware of the sexual abuse allegations, Miley revealed, “until I know someone and I know their story, I never really judge anyone.”
And we totally respect that point of view! “I live a similar life to Woody — I live a public life,” Miley explained further. “From the way I saw him with his family, I never saw him be anything but an incredible person and a really great dad. People might slam me for saying that. I’m sure it was a hard time for that family. My family has been through hard things, and I think everyone’s suffering is different.”
Miley also revealed how big of a fan she was of Woody’s even before she was asked to be in his series. “I had moved, and the only thing that I brought into my new house was a picture of Woody Allen,” the Voice coach gushed. “My first night I slept in my new house, [my manager] called and said, ‘Woody wants you to fly to New York.’ Looks like that portrait of hers may be good luck!
