    I can relate. I’ve never lost a part because of it, but I am very much a “hugger”, and a fairly enthusiastic one at that. For the most part in the theatre community where I live, that’s an accepted form of greeting or expression of congratulations, etc. Even many of the straight men seem to have no problem with it. I have run into a few, however, who tend to tense up at the prospect of being hugged (by ANYONE, not just other men), and I have to keep a constant inventory in my head of who I have to offer a handshake or “fistbump” rather than a warm embrace.

    Oh was woody charge as a child rapist???
    I must have missed that part of the story.
    That had nothing to do with the story. Your an ass!

    Woody is weird. Alan might be lucky that he didn’t get a part in one of his creepy movies.

  4. JMC says

    It seems you missed basically every part of the story other than Woody’s denial, JC. Child rapist is Woody Allen’s master status, as it well should be.

    @Troy Mia would probably run off to go to court to defend her good friend, convicted child rapist Roman Polanski, like she did after all the accusations against Allen. And if you don’t find it exceedingly weird– to say the least– that a mother at the center of accusations against a man (Allen) who was neither tried nor convicted of molestation would turn around and then very publicly defend someone for whom there’s no doubt, legally, that he (Polanski) did rape a minor, then I have some swampland to sell you. What kind of parent who firmly believed their child had been abused would then turn around and defend perhaps the world’s most famous convicted purveyor of such abuse, as Farrow did for Polanski? Seriously, think about that for a minute.

    Alan Cummimg is excellent on “The Good Wife”. Such a funny character and he nails an American accent. He was awesome in “X2″ as well as Nightcrawler and it’s a shame he never reprised the role.

    Oh for god’s sake! are people here stupid enough to actually believe the ludicrous accusations that lunatic Mia Farrow made against her ex-BF?

    Absolutely NO evidence was ever found of his having molested his daughter. And a year-long investigation was done by the police. What they DID find was that Mia Farrow’s daughter’s descriptions were inconsistent and contradictory, and that she sounded as though she had been coached to say what she did *cough*Mia*.

    Meanwhile, Mia Farrow has defended not only Roman Polanski, a CONVICTED paedophile, but HER OWN BROTHER who is in jail after being found guilty of child molestation.

    Other than Mia’s completely baseless accusations, there has never been any evidence to demonstrate that Woody Allen has any sexual proclivity whatsoever for children.

    Woody Allen is a disgusting pervert.

    Whether or not he molested his daughter Dylan is irrelevant to his status as a disgusting pervert.

    He had an affair with his children’s sister Soon Yi (his girllfriend’s teenage daughter) with whom he was in a position of authority over.

    He is a disgusting man.

  9. D.R.H. says

    THANK YOU, MARYM!!! Mia, Woody, Roman – all crazy. Why anyone would waste valuable time trying to convince themselves otherwise is a rather sad mystery.

  10. BlahBlahBlah says

    Its interesting how quickly these comments go completely off topic. As for Alan Cumming, its very weird to hear his Scottish accent after watching him weekly on The Good Wife (the best show with the worst name on television)

  11. MaryM says

    Whether or not Mia is unhinged has no bearing on Woody Allen being a disgusting pervert.

    Marrying his children’s sister (his girlfriend’s daughter) is sick beyond belief.

    And of course his own daughter has accused him of molesting her.

  12. Dback says

    Of all the people in the world I’d NOT effusively want to hug, Woody Allen is high on the list. He’s a brilliant talent, but not exactly cuddly. (He’s also written several good lesbian or bisexual women parts, but only one decent gay male role, in “Radio Days.” In 40-some pictures, that ain’t much.)

  13. Mikey says

    @MARYM: He married the 21 year old adoptive daughter of his ex-girlfriend. A young woman with whom he was NEVER in a position of authority (she was already much older than Mia’s other children), a young woman who NEVER lived in the same house as him, and a young woman that EVERYONE who knew them says was distant from Allen for most of her life.

    Soon-Yi started spending time with Woody when she was 19 or so (her exact age is difficult to assess, as her birth records were destroyed in her country of origin), and this was AT MIA’S URGING. Mia Farrow is the one who wanted Woody to spend time with the now-adult Soon-Yi.

    As for “his own daughter” accusing him, she was carefully coached by Mia. This was the finding of all of the social workers, psychologists, and police investigators who worked for over a year on the case associated with Mia Farrow’s false accusations.

    Woody Allens’ own son defended his father, saying that Mia Farrow had coached his younger sister (he was 16 at the time of the alleged molestation).

    The SINGLE day where this supposed molestation occurred was days before a custody hearing. An odd choice for a molestation, isn’t it? In an attic in which Woody had always refused to go (he’s terribly claustrophobic, a well-known fact that is amply documented). In a house FULL of guests and family members?

    If Woody was SO hard up for a bit of kiddy diddling, he’d have done it before, and again after. One would HAVE to believe that if he was risking everything at such a public venue to molest his daughter, that he would actually do it again when LESS risk was involved.

    And yet… no. There were never ANY other accusations against him. His daughter never said he molested her at any other moment. No one has ever come forth with any further accusations.

    As for your being creeped out that he and Soon-Yi married, well, they’ve been married for how long now? 17 years? And have children of their own.

    Meanwhile, let’s not forget that Mia Farrow has suggested that she had an affair with Frank Sinatra and that her son with Woody Allen is in fact Frank Sinatra’s son.

    But I guess you won’t let facts get in the way of your feminazi opinion. If he’s a man, he’s got to be guilty. No ifs, ands, or buts. People like you are the reason men get their lives destroyed by false accusations.

    Strange that a bunch of gay men have such judgment about matters that they know little about. Or not so strange I suppose given what this community seems mostly interested in.
