Kate Winslet has been re-evaluating the choices she has made in her acting career, and one of her deepest regrets is working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski.
In a new interview with Variety, the Oscar-winning actress said she did not know what she was thinking when she agreed to star in Polanski's 2011 film "Carnage" and Allen's 2017 film "Wonder Wheel."
"It's like, what the f--- was I doing working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski?" she said. "It's unbelievable to me now how those men were held in such high regard, so widely in the film industry and for as long as they were. It's f---ing disgraceful."
Polanski has been a fugitive since 1978, when he fled to France before sentencing in a sexual assault case in which he was accused of drugging and raping a 13-year-old girl. Since then, several other women have come forward to accuse him of raping them when they were children or teenagers.
Allen, meanwhile, has been accused of molesting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was 7 years old in the early 1990s. He has long denied the allegation and was never charged criminally.
Winslet admitted she held herself accountable for the decisions she made to work with both.
"I have to take responsibility for the fact that I worked with them both," she said. "I can't turn back the clock. I'm grappling with those regrets, but what do we have if we aren't able to just be f---ing truthful about all of it?"
This is not the first time that the "Titanic" star has expressed regret over the "poor decisions" she has made in the past.
"As women around the world and from all walks of life marched last weekend, I realized that I wouldn’t be able to stand here this evening and keep to myself some bitter regrets that I have about poor decisions to work with individuals with whom I wish I had not," Winslet said during her speech at the London Film Critics' Circle Awards in 2018, reports Entertainment Weekly.
"It has become clear to me that by not saying anything, I might be adding to the anguish of many courageous women and men," she continued. "There are directors, producers, and men of power who have for decades been awarded and applauded for their highly regarded work by both this industry and moviegoers alike."
