Michael Caine says he will never work with Woody Allen again

Actor, producer, and author, Michael Caine, has joined many other Woody Allen film alumni and vowed never to work with Woody Allen again given the allegations made against him by his daughter, Dylan Farrow, who claims that she was molested by Allen when she was a child. 

Caine who won an award in the year 1987 for Allen's film 'Hannah and Her Sisters' said in an interview to The Guardian, "I am so stunned. I’m a patron of the NSPCC [National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children] and have very strong views about pedophilia," he continued.

The actor also went on to speak about how he did not regret working with Allen when he did but he would certainly not do so again. " I can’t come to terms with it because I loved Woody and had a wonderful time with him. I even introduced him to Mia [Farrow]. I don’t regret working with him, which I did in complete innocence; but I wouldn’t work with him again, no."

Woody Allen was the step-father to his ex-wife's children most of whom were adopted. Dylan Farrow publicly claimed in the year 2014 that Allen had molested her as a child and the allegations surfaced after Mia Farrow's split from him in the year 1992. Despite the famous director not being charged, a Connecticut prosecutor revealed that there was probable cause to make a case.

Ronan Farrow, Allen and Mia's son and journalist wrote a column for Hollywood Reporter in the year 2016 in which he directly addressed the sexual abuse claims and called out the media for not confronting Allen with these allegations as well as actors who had worked with him.

In response to this, Allen told The Guardian, "I have no interest in all of that. I find that all tabloid stupidity." He also responded to an interview which Dylan had given to CBS This Morning and said,  "When this claim was first made more than 25 years ago, it was thoroughly investigated by both the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital and New York State Child Welfare. They both did so for many months and independently concluded that no molestation had ever taken place. Instead, they found it likely a vulnerable child had been coached to tell the story by her angry mother during a contentious breakup," as reported by People.
