Michael Caine Says He Won’t Work With Woody Allen Again

Allegations of molestation made by Dylan Farrow against father Woody Allen have led numerous stars to distance themselves from the Oscar-winning director, and we can add Michael Caine to that list.

Caine, 84, starred in one of Woody Allen’s most acclaimed films, “Hannah and Her Sisters” — for which he won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar — but tells The Guardian that he doesn’t ever see himself working with Allen again. (Allen, 82, continues to deny his daughter’s allegations.)

“I am a patron of the NSPCC [National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children] and have very strong views about pedophilia,” Caine explains. “I can’t come to terms with [the allegation], because I loved Woody and had a wonderful time with him. I even introduced him to Mia [Farrow].”

Adds Caine: “I don’t regret working with him, which I did in complete innocence; but I wouldn’t work with him again, no.”

As Variety notes, back in 2010, Caine expressed his views about child molestation in an interview with the Daily Telegraph: “I’m quite a rabid right-winger about pedophilia,” declared the actor. “If you want to bring back hanging for them then I’m your man. I’ll pull the lever. Don’t get me started on that. I hate it. Hate it.”

Variety has reached out to Allen for comment.
