Susan Sarandon slammed Woody Allen at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday.

"I think he sexually assaulted a child and I don't think that's right," Sarandon said during Variety's Women in Motion talk with Geena Davis.

"I have nothing good to say about him," she added. "I don't want to go there."

Allen is back in the headlines this week. At the Cannes premiere of new film, "Cafe Society," comedian Laurent Lafitte made a rape joke involving director Roman Polanski that seemed to reference allegations that Allen sexually abused his step-daughter, Dylan Farrow.

That wasn't the only reason Allen has been dominating the talk at Cannes. The director's son, Ronan Farrow, penned a blistering opinion piece prior to "Cafe Society's" debut, criticizing the media for not doing more digging into the allegations of abuse.
