From Daily Mail: Legendary actress Anjelica Huston has jumped to the defense of maligned Hollywood figures Woody Allen, Roman Polanski and Jeffrey Tambor – but she still thinks beloved comedian Bill Murray is a ‘s**t’.
In an outspoken and unabashed interview published in New York Magazine, the 67-year-old admitted she’d work with Allen again ‘in a second’ despite allegations reemerging that the filmmaker abused his daughter, Dylan O’Sullivan Farrow, when she was just seven.
‘Two states investigated him,’ Huston, who has worked on two films with Allen, noted. ‘And neither of them prosecuted him,’ she added – reaffirming that she’d jump at an opportunity to collaborate with him again.
Huston’s stance marks a stark contrast to other Hollywood stars, such as Greta Gerwig, Timothée Chalamet and Colin Firth, who have all recently voiced regret about working with Allen.
In the same vein of questioning, the Oscar-winner was also asked about director Roman Polanski’s 1977 sex abuse case, in which he raped a 13-year-old girl in the home of Jack Nicholson, who was Huston’s boyfriend at the time.
Present at the residence as the assault took place, Huston insisted Polanski’s actions were part of ‘a whole playboy movement’ and can’t be judged by today’s standards of sexual abuse because it was simply a different time.
‘It’s a story that could’ve happened in ten years before in England or France or Italy or Spain or Portugal, and no one would’ve heard anything about it,’ Huston said. She added that that approaching underage girls was simply ‘de rigueur for most of the guys like Roman who had grown up with the European sensibility.
‘That’s how these guys enjoy their time,’ she claimed.
