“I have to take responsibility for the fact that I worked with them both. I can’t turn back the clock,” the actor says.
Kate Winslet was expressing regret over working with the admitted child rapist Roman Polanski and sexual abuser Woody Allen in a candid interview with Vanity Fair, which was about turning a point of her career.
The one time Oscar winner said about the extraordinary experience with both the fil directors starring in Polanski’s screen adaptation of the play God of Carnage in 2011 and Allen’s 2017 film Wonder Wheel and Carnage.
In a Piece published on Thursday she said Valinty Fair:
“It’s like, what the fuck was I doing working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski?”
She also added:
“It’s unbelievable to me now how those men were held in such high regard, so widely in the film industry and for as long as they were.”
“It’s fucking disgraceful. And I have to take responsibility for the fact that I worked with them both. I can’t turn back the clock. I’m grappling with those regrets but what do we have if we aren’t able to just be fucking truthful about all of it?”
Winslet, because she was moved to speak out after she said, “life is fucking short, and I’d like to do my best when it comes to setting a decent example to younger women.”
