Greta Gerwig says she won't work with Woody Allen anymore because of sexual misconduct claims

Allen's adopted daughter Dylan Farrow accused him of molesting her as a child.

Gerwig went on to say, "It is something that I take very seriously and have been thinking deeply about, and it has taken me time to gather my thoughts and say what I mean to say. I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film. I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again."

He wrote a letter published by The New York Times, in response to Farrow's account.

"No one wants to discourage abuse victims from speaking out," Allen told The Times, "but one must bear in mind that sometimes there are people who are falsely accused and that is also a terribly destructive thing."

His rep did not respond immediately to ABC News' request for comment on this story.

"Dylan Farrow’s two different pieces made me realize that I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realization," Gerwig said in the Times. "I grew up on his movies, and they have informed me as an artist, and I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward."

Farrow took to Twitter to thank Gerwig for her statement.

"Greta, thank you for your voice. Thank you for your words," she wrote. "Please know they are deeply felt and appreciated."

Farrow has previously expressed criticism of stars who support the "Time's Up" initiative to fight sexual harassment and gender disparity, but continue to work with and praise Allen.
