While Kate Winslet was quite vocal about the sexual allegations made on studio mogul Harvey Weinstein, the actor has taken a difference stance with another accused mogul, Woody Allen.

While talking to a leading U.S. publication, the Mountains Between Us star, stayed away from the controversy and declined to answer a question regarding allegations of misconduct made against the director.

According to People Magazine, she said, “It’s just a difficult discussion. I’d rather respectfully not enter it today.”

In 2014, Dylan Farrow, who is one of the star’s three children with ex Mia Farrow, publicly claimed that Allen molested her as a child. Allen denied Dylan’s claims at the time.

Woody Allen feels "sad" for Harvey Weinstein over abuse allegations against the disgraced movie mogul, telling the BBC on October 15, 2017 the situation was "tragic" for the women involved. "The whole Harvey Weinstein thing is very sad for everybody involved," he said of the scandal which has shaken Hollywood in recent days. (AFP)

Allen’s son, Ronan Farrow, who recently wrote about the sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, supported his sister claims.

The controversy surrounding the director is making headlines again after the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment accusations rocked Hollywood.

In a recent interview to a leading U.S. daily, Winslet praised Woody Allen and noted that Allen is an “incredible director”.

Asked about the criticism she faced on social media for her comments, Winslet said, “I don’t read how people respond to things. We’re always as actors going to say the wrong thing. I think it’s better to respectfully step away from the discussion.”
