Mira Sorvino is joining the list of celebrity women who have openly regretted working with famed movie director Woody Allen.
Sorvino also publicly apologized in a letter to Allen's daughter, Dylan Farrow, who for years claimed her father sexually abused her yet no one did anything about it.
Prior to Sorvino's statement, actress-turned-director Greta Gerwig had also announced that she would no longer work with Allen. Gerwig, who starred in Allen's 2015 film To Rome with Love, said that after "much considered" thought and further learning about Dylan's story, any future projects with Allen would not happen. The Lady Bird director also stated that she was "hurt" for also adding to Dylan's pain.
Sorvino, who starred in the 1995 film Mighty Aphrodite for which she won Best Supporting Actress, has now also decided to professionally cut ties with Allen. In an open letter to Allen's daughter, Sorvino elaborated that she regrets not looking further into the allegations against Allen and believing the media's portrayal of the situation among him, Dylan, and her mother, Mia Farrow.
"I am so sorry, Dylan! I cannot 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. As a mother and a woman, this breaks my heart for you. I am so, so sorry!" Sorvino wrote.
Dylan had revealed that her father abused her when she was eight years old. Allen has denied the allegations for decades after it was brought to light during his divorce from Mia. Allen was also under scrutiny for marrying his adoptive daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.
In addition to Sorvino and Gerwig, actress Ellen Page and actor David Krumholtz have also publicly regretted working with Allen.
Sorvino The Survivor
Sorvino herself has dealt with sexual abuse in the past. The actress claimed that she was harassed at the 1995 Toronto Film Festival by disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein. Sorvino claimed Weinstein chased her around a hotel room after he became too aggressive with her.
Following this, Sorvino was blacklisted in Hollywood and found it difficult to obtain roles. Sorvino claimed she was not aware of the reason why, until director Peter Jackson confirmed that Weinstein specifically told him not to hire Sorvino.
