Michael Caine says that he won’t work with Woody Allen again due to the sexual abuse allegations against the filmmaker. Caine, who won Best Supporting Actor in 1986 for his role in Allen’s Hannah and Her Sisters, spoke with The Guardian and said that Dylan Farrow’s allegations that her adopted father molested her as a child “stunned” him.

“I am a patron of the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) and have very strong views about pedophilia,” Caine said. “I can’t come to terms with it, because I loved Woody and had a wonderful time with him. I even introduced him to Mia. I don’t regret working with him, which I did in complete innocence; but I wouldn’t work with him again, no.”

Allen has maintained his innocence regarding the allegations for years, and has come back into the spotlight due to the rise of the #MeToo era. Caine joins several previous stars of Allen films including Timothée Chalamet, Mira Sorvino, Colin Firth, Rebecca Hall and Greta Gerwig who have said that they won’t work with Allen again.
