Criticized several times for her controversy about the consequences of the Weinstein affair, Catherine Denev stands on her feet. In an interview published this Thursday by Paris Match, the actress urges her to work with Woody Allen and reaffirms her support for Roman Polanski, two directors on business lines.
"I'd like to shoot with (Woody Allen)," says the actress. "He's a man of great talent. I do not see why I would not accept it. Who would have stopped me? "
For more than 20 years, Woody Allen has been the subject of charges by his adoptive father, Dillon Farrow, who claims that the director of Manhattan he touched her when he was a child. He has always defended himself from the acts for which he has been charged, and justice has refused to prosecute.

Catherine Denev also confirms his support for Roman Polanski, whom she has already expressed in the past. The director is found guilty in 1977 of kidnapping a juvenile for illicit sex with Samantha Gamer at age 13. He then escaped from the United States to avoid a possible conviction.

Following the fall of American producer Harvey Weinstein, who was accused in sexual abuse by many women in 2017, hundreds of Internet users spoke on both sides of the Atlantic to condemn the sexual assaults they were themselves the victims of. While these testimonies flooded Twitter under the #MeToo and #BalanceTonPorc hashish, Catherine Denev was surprised by his joint signing of a tidal platform in January 2018, defending the "freedom to irritate" men. "People are angry at me or disappointed, it's not my problem," she says today.
