Actor Jeff Goldblum has come under fire for supporting director Woody Allen with whom he worked on the 1977 film "Annie Hall". Jeff defended the director despite a string of disturbing allegations against him amid the #MeToo movement.

In an interview with a publication, Goldblum was asked if he would work with Woody Allen again, despite accusations of sexual abuse made against him by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. He responded saying "I think there is a presumption of innocence until proven guilty."

"I know I enjoyed working with him many years ago and I sat in with his band once too."

"Even though I feel like this cultural shift is very, very positive and long overdue and I support it wholeheartedly and take it very seriously, I also admire his body of work. So I would consider  working with him again, until I learned something more," he added further.

A number of other Hollywood actors, including Ellen Page, Greta Gerwig and Natalie Portman, have refused to work with the director following the allegations. Allen however has denied any wrongdoing as the allegations have never been proven.
