While promoting Captain America: The Winter Soldier last week, Scarlett Johansson made it a point to bar reporters from asking about her pregnancy. A caveat that apparently didn’t extend to being asked about Woody Allen and his alleged molestation of Dylan Farrow because here she is defending him to The Guardian before her publicist shut the conversation down then kicked the writer out when her follow-up question was about SodaStream:

I think it’s irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on. That just feels irresponsible to me.”
And what has she made about the backlash against Allen? “I’m unaware that there’s been a backlash. I think he’ll continue to know what he knows about the situation, and I’m sure the other people involved have their own experience with it. It’s not like this is somebody that’s been prosecuted and found guilty of something, and you can then go, ‘I don’t support this lifestyle or whatever.’ I mean, it’s all guesswork.”
So, has it had an impact on her relationship or affection for him? “I don’t know anything about it. It would be ridiculous for me to make any kind of assumption one way or the other.”
She’s flustered, and since I’ve been given the wind-up signal by the publicist, I move on to an even more difficult subject. SodaStream.

Keep in mind, Scarlett Johansson once said she’d sew the hem of Woody Allen’s pants if he asked her to which I think we can all agree is in the same ballpark as publicly denying he’s a child molester in the face of damning evidence. In fact, if you think about it, sewing is way harder than lying because, watch, I’ll do it right now: My penis is small. See? I just lied right to your face, and I didn’t even need thread.

    She must have drunk a lot of Stockholm syndrome-pregnant hormones cocktails that are all the rave lately. Kids these days!

    Her incoherent babbling about Oxfam vs. SodaStream was almost as sad as the Woody Allen shtick. I would have had way more respect for her if she’d just said, “I don’t give a shit because money. Also, no one expects me to give a shit because boobs.”

  3. I’m not convinced either way that Woody did it. It’s been painted that way in the media, but I don’t buy it. There are too many factors at play behind the scenes to know what happened. Only him and Dylan know what happened.

    The only thing most people know about Woody is that he married his step-daughter. Which is a lie. Soon-Yi was never his step-daughter. She was Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter with her husband Andre.

    The age difference makes it creepy to most, but their relationship is still going strong. And just because you think someone is creepy doesn’t make them guilty of child molestation. Mia also hooked up with and married Frank Sinatra when she was 21 and he was 50.

    • I suspect you’re going to catch flak for this, but I tend to agree… none of us keyboard detectives were there, so it’s – at a minimum – in poor taste to absolutely declare either his guilt or innocence.

      • Fuck the flak. Truth is the truth. People need to break free of the nasty mentality that causes them to throw all logic and reason out the window the moment someone cries rape or child molestation.

      • I think this study has some interesting information that is somewhat pertinent to the discussion, check it out:
        http://www.ndaa.org/pdf/the_voice_vol_3_no_1_2009.pdf

      • …speaking of the truth, in my humble opinion, it’s the adult characters in this case: woody allen and mia farrow (and all of their qualities, both good & bad) who are tainting everyone’s impartiality …dylan is being marginalized in the conversation because everyone is focusing more on her famous parents …or worse, her side of the story is being trashed because people are too busy taking sides with either her famous mother or famous father (in the exact same way that the roman polanski incident was so polarizing because it became more about roman polanski and less about the victim & the facts of the crime) …in the (finally apropos) words of helen flanders: “will someone please think of the children???”

        …here’s what’s always baffled me about this whole thing:
        A) has anyone bothered to go back and read the original stories from 1992? or have they simply been going on the selected excerpts of information the media’s been regurgitating during this recent resurgence? here are two links that chronicle the original events (ie; those pesky facts that everyone keeps claiming are so lacking) from 1992:

        http://www.vanityfair.com/online/daily/2014/02/woody-allen-sex-abuse-10-facts

        http://www.slate.com/articles/life/culturebox/2014/02/woody_allen_and_dylan_farrow_digging_deeper_into_misleading_coverage.html

        B) since when have people been so quick to discredit a child’s allegations as dubious or tainted? especially when the child’s story has’nt changed in over 20 years??? …everyone is so quick to jump on the ‘false memory’ and ‘tainted testimony’ bandwagon, but, if this were anyone but woody allen, if this were just some unknown movie producer, and his 5 year old adopted daughter recounted tales of sexual molestation, and all of the details in the situation were the same, would the child’s allegations have been so widely, and so quickly, shouted down? even though the child’s story has never changed since the original allegations in 1992?

        C) has anyone considered the fact that the way the justice system views/handles/investigates/prosecutes child-abuse cases has progressed by leaps & bounds over the last 20 years, just like the way we now view/handle rape & domestic violence cases has progressed considerably? (not to mention the way the media and the general public view it and talk about it) …and yes, i know someone will bring up the McMartin case, and fine, i will concede that there have been rare cases of malfeasance, but does that now mean we have to give a side-eye to every child who says they were abused?

    • Dottie Sandusky

      Don, would you like to come over to my place for tea? I feel we have a lot in common.

    • I agree that there really isn’t damming evidence. I feel bad for this dylan girl though, either she was molested or she’s been brainwashed into thinking she was…

      I’m ready to throw the switch on the electric chair just Allen’s being creepy though.

    • Yep, nothing creepy at all about a much older man, 56 years old at the time, marrying and having children with a woman that he met when she was 10 years old and was involved with her mother, nothing at all. I am sure we will all just sit back and believe that somehow he had no feelings towards her and magically at 18 or 21 or whatever bullshit you want to believe all of a sudden some magic switch turned on and now he became sexually interested in her. Sure…

      Well at least we know now that Don and Iveski are supporters of child molestation.

      Just because someone is still with a molester or pervert does not mean everything is okay, they may be weak, battered or submissive. That is like saying that everything is okay with the marriage of a woman that stays with a man that gets drunk every night and beats her, she is staying with him, so naturally everything must be fine, right?

      • You must be in top physical condition, jumping to conclusions like that. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to help my kids paint some billboards for this weekend’s Child Molester Support Rally. Boy, you called me right.

      • I would say I’m surprised to hear you say that El Jefe, but I’m not. It’s the common response one gets when they don’t toe the line and want to hang anybody accused of child molestation from a tree.

        As far as I know, Woody and Soon-Yi had very little contact with each other until she was a legal adult. Like I said she was Andre Previn’s adopted daughter, not Woody’s. It was Mia herself that suggested that Woody and Soon-Yi get to know each other better and the rest is history.

        So because I believe someone is innocent until proven guilty, I support child molestation? That’s some classic othering. It’s exactly the kind of mentality that needs to go.

        For your reading pleasure. http://www.avoiceformen.com/mens-rights/woody-allen-and-the-court-of-public-opinion/

      • Also, Soon-Yi and Woody never “had children” together. They did, however, adopt two in 2000.

      • They still have children together. Biologically or not they are still both their children. What exactly is your argument again? Also both children just happen to be girls, how convenient.

      • Normal well adjusted male.

        “I am 56 years old, I met this little girl when she was 10 years old, she is also the adopted daughter of the woman I was involved with, pass”

        Not normal, not well adjusted male, pervert and pedophile.

        “Well she is legal now, so whatever, I am going for it” and I don’t for a minute believe he waited until she was legal either.

        I do like how you basically tried to tie Mia Farrow encouraging her daughter to spend time with someone who would be considered a father figure to her daughter as some sort of encouragement for Woody Allen to date her daughter. That’s a pretty twisted level of thinking.

      • LOL amazed how people see sexual allegations as an excuse to go all fascist dip. Overcompensating a wee bit, maybe? And the sniveling about age difference is just too, too precious. Are you older guys jealous you can’t score with younger women, maybe? How about you mind your own business a lot? Brutal murders happen every day, why don’t one of you oh-so-concerned twats go do something about one of them? You idiots.

      • I never said, or even implied that Mia encouraged Woody to date Soon-Yi. I said she encouraged them to get to know each other. That means they didn’t know each other well even though he’s been dating her mom since she was 10. They fell in love.

      • Dox

        While I cant argue that he has not been convicted of anything, Woody Allen’s behavior is relatively damning. There is nothing that he has done since the accusations that would scream wrongfully accused.
        And I guess the real test is… how many of you would hand your daughter over to Woody Allen, to spend alone time with?

    • I gotta say I’m with Don on this. I don’t really believe Woody did any molesting, mostly because Mia Farrow has been so ugly about their breakup that convincing her daughter to lie about sex abuse actually seems like the more likely explanation.

      I’m really not interested in the Woody Allen crap at all. I think his movies are faux artistic chickflicks at best.

      I’m a LOT more interested in these same people who defend Roman Polanski, who without a question of doubt is a child rapist.

      • I’ve never seen a single Woody Allen movie. Roman Polanski is definitely guilty. He admitted it and was convicted but fled the country iirc.

        Fun fact: Guess who spoke in defense of Polanski when he sued Vanity Fair for libel in 2004? His old friend, Mia Farrow. She speaks very highly of that convicted pedophile.

      • She actually just testified in that libel suit against Vanity Fair that Polanski wasn’t looking to fuck other women two weeks after Sharon Tate’s death. Vanity Fair stated Polanski was “inundating a woman with his Polish charm,” and told the woman he would make a new Sharon Tate out of her (obviously a lie if only for the “Polish charm” part).

        There was nothing about molestation in that trial, and if she was subpoenaed, it isn’t like she had a choice but to tell the truth in regards to Polanski.

  4. glumcunt

    Did ScarJo, when asked about the abuse of a child, seriously just complain about her Google Alert?

  5. Gen

    Maybe she’s just trying to get all of her unpopular ideas about the Israel-Palestine conflict and alleged child molestation while her boobs have swollen to twice their usual size? Rarely is someone allowed such a grace period in which to say incredibly stupid shit. It’s like the equivalent of downing a pint of Ben and Jerry’s every day with pregnancy as an excuse, see?

    • Jessica Simpson

      I don’t know what any of that Ishmael/Partytime talky-talk means, but I love Ben & Jerry’s. And Awesome Blossoms. Imma go get pregnant agin’ so I can pig out some more.

    • Maybe Scarlett is just better informed about Israel. And “palestine”. History will almost certainly show that the people who speak of “palestinian’s” rights were without a blessed clue what a lot of lying, murderous creeps they are. And, say, speaking of old men and young girls, do ya think that happens in Moslem countries, such as the “palestinian” areas? Do ya think the young girls have ANY say? If you’re pro-”palestinian”, you’re an asshole. Pretty straight forward. Oh, and speaking of straight, have you seen a gay pride parade in Gaza? There hasn’t been one!

  6. Blergh

    See, men? This is what happens when you talk at an idiot’s enormous tits and tell them that you respect their opinions about life, art and politics. Scarlett is the weakest link in every film she makes, but because titties (and gunt, and cow-face, but whatever), she thinks she and Oxfam are equally informed regarding the issues with the settlements, and now is taking up for a wizened piece of shit who destroyed multiple lives because he flattered here because: titties.

    This skunt is an amoral piece of trash with a heinously inflated ego. I can’t wait for aging to hit her like a speeding train.

    • LOL “the settlements”, like Israel daring to build housing on their land is some heinous crime. Do you idiots have ANY clue what goes on in Gaza and “West Bank” on a regular basis? Side with the “palestinians” and you have less brains in your head than Scarlett has in one of her tits.

      • Blergh

        Terribly sorry that the activities Chris Hedges and other journos document – atrocities against Palestinians, a people you loathe so much you evidently must pretend they don’t exist – have been exposed to the rest of the world.

        Do you think Oxfam is also a distant second in complex, nuanced thinking to this giant-tittied, lima beans for brains twat mounting a defense of Woody Allen because she was annoyed by her the Google Alerts she’d set up in all of her glorious narcissism? You’ve got some very interesting values.

      • Linda

        @welldoneson–you are one gigantic fucktard if you think that a thousand year old largely biblical claim to a land makes it okay to uproot and marginalize and frankly terrorize an entire people. but what makes you even more of an asshole is that you are trying to sell that zionist bullshit to a younger, better educated audience than the normal aipac crowd.

      • Betcha 10 shekel your ass is Jewish. Nobody gives a fuck about Israel except jews and politicians that like jew money or like selling fighter planes and missiles to israel.

  7. why are sodastreams evil again? I’m confused.

    • ScarJo’s endorsements for them weren’t topless. Or something about being manufactured by Palestinians in an Israeli-occupied section of the West Bank…. I wasn’t really paying attention.

      • eh, fuckin whatever. if only they were manufactured by 8 year old malaysian kids like everything else.

      • They’ve got nimble fingers, those 8-year old kids. Actually, now that I think of it, the location of that factory might be why I can’t get bacon-flavored syrup…

      • West Bank is Israel, and used to be called Judea and Sumaria before Islamist imperialists realized how many dumb assholes there are in the West.

      • Rhett

        Muslims have controlled that area for far longer than Jews. 13 out of the past 14 centuries. Jews have come and gone through that piece of land without being able to establish control over it except for a brief period until first the Assyrians and then the Babylonians kicked their asses. The Palestinians are the indigenous population and will still be there long after Zionists get burned out and decide to go back to Europe from which most of them originate. Even the New York Times is now admitting that Ashkenazi Jews, the basis of the modern state of Israel, are primarily descended from European converts:

        http://www.nytimes.com/2013/10/09/science/ashkenazi-origins-may-be-with-european-women-study-finds.html

  8. All I see in this picture is a Spanish MILF on the left , and MILF to be in center and a pedophile on the right to molest the children of both when they reach his preferred age.

  9. C’mon fish…how is that a defense? She basically said:

    Why are you asking me?
    I don’t think there will be any backlash,
    I don’t know if he’s guilty. I wasn’t there.

    Seems like a pretty reasonable response to me.

  10. Linda

    any defense this chick makes is a condemnation as far as I’m concerned. when it came to extra money in her already full pockets or sticking with a humanitarian charity, she picked the money. when it comes to keeping your fucking mouth shut about stuff you admittedly know nothing about, or adding your voice in support of what is in the best case scenario a disgusting old pervert, you pick the pervert.

  11. $20 says when she shats out that kid, she jumps on the anti-vac wagaon. Skank.

  12. Jenn

    Well, she doesn’t know if he molested the girl. I still don’t like her,or Woody Pedo Allen

  13. eh

    Boy, we are judgy today. Once a Christian always a Christian, huh?

  14. coljack

    Woody: “Scarlett’s pregnant? Oh, that’s great. When’s she due? No reason – just asking.”

  15. Aggie

    I agree with her- what’s the point in asking people he’s worked with or his friends? What do they really expect them to say? What would any of us say if we were asked this sort of thing about a co-worker or a friend? Talk to someone with a relevant opinion- a police officer, a judge, someone that works with sexual abuse victims- those are the people that might have something valuable to say about the issue.
