To date, the filmography of 44-year-old Kate Winslet has about 70 paintings. During her career, the Titanic star has worked with many eminent directors, including 84-year-old Woody Allen and 87-year-old Roman Polanski, whose names are now associated with high-profile sex scandals: filmmakers are accused of harassment and molestation of minors. In a recent interview with Vanity Fair, Kate Winslet confessed that she regrets working with them.
Now the actress does not understand what exactly she was thinking at the moment when she agreed to act with these directors.
It is not clear to me how these people could remain in high positions and be respected in the film industry for so long, given what they really were. It's just a shame! Of course, I also take responsibility for working with them. However, I cannot turn back the clock. I struggle with regret about this. Now we only have to talk about it honestly and publicly,
The actress also encouraged all victims of harassment to join the #MeToo movement, a massive campaign against sexual violence and harassment launched in 2017. The star clarified that she herself supports this movement because she wants to be the best version of herself and set an example for other young girls who are embarrassed to tell that they once became victims of harassment.
Recall that with Roman Polanski Winslet worked on the film вЂњMassacreвЂќ, and with Woody Allen starred in the film вЂњWheel of WondersвЂќ. Both filmmakers are involved in major sex scandals. So, in 1977, Roman Polanski was charged with the rape of 13-year-old Samantha Gamer. Then the director admitted his guilt, made a deal with the investigation, and spent 42 days in prison, after which he fled from the United States to Europe, thanks to which he was able to escape punishment. At the same time, several more actresses later accused Polanski of sexual harassment.
Woody Allen, on the other hand, was accused of sexual harassment by her adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, a few years ago. She claims that the filmmaker abused her when she was seven years old. Later, the press also surfaced information about Allen's secret affair with a minor model, which began in 1976 and lasted eight years.
