Jeff Goldblum is dealing with a frenzy of negative comments and online criticism following a confession that he would be willing to work with Woody Allen again, despite sexual misconduct allegations that have been leveled against the latter. 

In an interview with iNews UK, Goldblum revealed he would work with Allen, who helped propel his career with “Annie Hall,” unless he learned definitive information and had more proof that his former collaborator had done something wrong. 

“I think there is a presumption of innocence until proven guilty. I know I enjoyed working with him many years ago and I sat in with his band once too,” Goldblum said.

Allen has faced accusations for decades, most notably that he sexually assaulted his adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow. He’s also been questioned about the relationship he had with his step-daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, whom he married once she was of legal age. 

The resurfacing of these accusations was due in very large part to the “#MeToo” movement, a movement Goldblum upheld as a “cultural shift” that was “very, very positive and long overdue.” After saying he supports the cause “wholeheartedly,” he expressed doubt that the accusations against Allen are true. He even called the accusations “unfair.”

While Goldblum may be willing to still give Allen a chance, not everyone feels the same way. Several actors and producers have essentially cut ties with him in the wake of #MeToo, refusing to work with him, while others have even stated they would donate their salaries made from his films.
