"This is why I also owe Mia an apology", he says in letter.

"I will never work with him again", actress Mira Sorvino declared on Thursday, joining the growing list of actresses now refusing to collaborate with Woody Allen.

The actress writes that she spoke with Ronan in December, telling about the "aftermath" of sharing her Weinstein story. The "Lady Bird" director says that if she knew then what she knows now about the allegations against Allen, she would not have worked with him.

Farrow has written multiple essays alleging that Woody Allen sexually abused her as a child, and recently criticised some members of the #TimesUp movement for overlooking her accusations. I can not begin to imagine how you have felt, all these years as you watched someone you called out as having hurt you as a child, a vulnerable little girl in his care, be lauded again and again, including by me and countless others in Hollywood who praised him and ignored you.

Dylan, now 32, has alleged for years that Allen molested her when she was 7, an allegation that the director denies.

She added: "Dylan Farrow's two different pieces made me realise that I increased another woman's pain, and I was heartbroken by that realisation". Sorvino continues to say that Linda Ash's role in filmmaker's film was "The role of her dreams". "You know, it's something that I've thought deeply about and I care deeply about, and I haven't had an opportunity to have an in-depth discussion where I come down on one side or the other".

"I am so sorry, Dylan!". The female-led story of a young woman (played by Saoirse Ronan) and her turbulent relationship with her mother (Laurie Metcalf) has emerged supreme at the 75th Golden Globes, bagging a Best Actress trophy for its lead star.

Actors such as Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, David Krumholtz, and Griffin Newman have all come forward in recent months to talk about their regrets over working with Woody Allen. She answered that she hadn't really had time to think about it (in four years), but later released a more thoughtful statement, saying "If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film". "Good for him that he goes, because if not, he has to meet me, and I will kill the motherf-er". "That said, the people who join this movement without taking any kind of personal accountability for the ways in which their own words and decisions have helped to perpetuate the culture they are fighting against, that's hard for me to reconcile".

Greta, thank you for your voice.

The journalist also claims to have received threatening phone calls, and noticed "mysterious men" following him in public, prompting his mum to express some serious concerns for his safety.
