Actress Susan Sarandon suggested during a Cannes Film Festival appearance Tuesday that she may one day direct pornographic films. Her comments came just days after she slammed Woody Allen for alleged child sex abuse.

"Most pornography is brutal and doesn’t look pleasurable from a female point of view. So I’ve been saying that when I no longer want to act, I want to do that," Sarandon said, according to The Times of London.

Saying that she hasn't "watched enough to know what the problems are," Sarandon said she wants to make porn roles look more acceptable to women.

The comment came after the Oscar-winning actress made headlines by speaking out against Allen on Sunday.

"I think he sexually assaulted a child and I don’t think that’s right," Sarandon said, according to Variety. "I have nothing good to say about him. I don’t want to go there."

Sarandon made the comments during Variety and Kering's Women in Motion Talk, which also featured "Thelma and Louise" co-star Geena Davis, at the Cannes Film Festival.

Allen brought his latest film, "Cafe Society," to the film festival.

On the same day, his son, Ronan Farrow, published an essay criticizing the "lenient" Allen has received after being accused of sexually abusing his sister when she was a child, CNN reported.

Allen has denied the allegation and hasn't faced criminal charges.

Twitter users for the most part applauded Sarandon's stand.
