Woody Allen said he “should be the poster boy for the #MeToo movement” and explained that he has never been accused of sexual misconduct by the actresses he’s worked with during his career.
“I’m a big advocate of the #MeToo movement,” the 82-year-old actor/director shared in an interview with the Argentinian news show Periodismo Para Todos Monday, according to The Wrap.
“I feel when they find people who harass innocent women and men, it’s a good thing that they’re exposing them,” he added. “But you know, I should be the poster boy for the #MeToo movement, because I have worked in movies for 50 years.
