Sorvino famously acted and won an Oscar in Allen's film Mighty Aphrodite in 1995, but she has vowed to never work with the director again in an open letter to his adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow. "For this I also owe an apology to Mia". In a piece for the Huffington Post, Sorvino explained that she believes Dylan and stands by her "gratitude and solidarity".

Greta Gerwig, director of the 2018 Golden Globes Best Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy victor, Lady Bird, regrets working with Woody Allen.

But on Tuesday night, in an online discussion with Aaron Sorkin hosted by the New York Times which covered the #MeToo wave in Hollywood, cultural appropriation and the impact of streaming services on the industry, Gerwig clarified her position on Allen. (Weinstein has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex.) Sorvino wrote she recently spoke with Ronan again about the aftermath of coming forward and told him she wanted to learn more about his sister's case. The "Lady Bird" director says that if she knew then what she knows now about the allegations against Allen, she would not have worked with him.

"I'm sorry, Dylan! I can't even imagine how you felt all se years while seeing how everyone - including myself and countless Hollywood personalities - praised again and again who you had accused of hurting you as a child, "Sorvino continues in missive".

"It is hard to sever ties and denounce your heroes, your benefactors, whom you fondly admired and felt a debt of gratitude toward for your entire career's existence", Mira Sorvino wrote.

Sorvino penned the open letter after Dylan has claimed that her 82-year-old father sexually molested her when she was only 7-year-old.

"I am very excited that this movement of "Me Too" and "Time's Up" is taking place not only for myself, but honestly for my daughters, because I can not stand that they would have to suffer what I or just about any other women I ever met has suffered at some point in their life, if not multiple times", she said Thursday.

Numerous women who have been asked about their participation in Alen's movies have skirted the issue, giving some variation of "Well, I only know him as an artist" or "I can't speak personally to the accusations because I wasn't there".

"I send you love and inclusion and admiration for your courage all this time", Sorvino also wrote, telling Dylan, "I believe you!" She added, "As a mother and a woman, this breaks my heart for you. This letter is lovely and I will carry your words with me", Farrow wrote. "From the bottom of my heart, thank you", Farrow tweeted. "I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again", Gerwig said.
