Actress Rachel Brosnahan says she deeply regrets working with writer-director Woody Allen on the 2016 limited series "Crisis".
Brosnahan said this amid allegations of molestation hurled against Allen by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, reports hollywoodreporter.com.
"The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel" star said: "Look, I had a great experience working on that project. But I do have to take this opportunity to say that, for me, I have really struggled with the decision to do that project for a long time.
"Honestly, it's the decision that I have made in my life that is the most inconsistent with everything I stand for and believe in, both publicly and privately. And while I can't take it back, it's important to me, moving forward, to make decisions that better reflect the things that I value and my world view.
"I do think that we need to make sure that we don't keep letting shitty men dominate the conversation about extraordinary women."
Brosnahan, 27, joins a number of stars who have sought to distance themselves from Allen in the wake of the #MeToo movement, including two who are currently contending for Oscars for other film work -- "Lady Bird" writer-director Greta Gerwig and "Call Me by Your Name" lead actor Timothee Chalamet.
Chalamet said he would be donating his full salary for his work in Allen's upcoming film "A Rainy Day" in New York to three charities: Time's Up, the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN, an anti-sexual violence organisation.
