During the interview, Johansson was asked how he felt about Alan and said, "I love Woody. I trust him and would work with him at any time. "
" I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had many conversations with him about it. I was very direct with him and he is very direct with me. He maintains his innocence and I believe him. "
Johansson's remarks were with anger on social media
"Scarlett Johansson fiercely defends Woody Allen, further solidifying himself as one of the most bad people working in hollywood ", tweeted Michael Cubi, editor-in-chief of Them." You really hate to see him. "
Johansson was asked during an interview about her stance on Alan in light of" a cultural environment where there is a new and a strong emphasis on believing women's claims. "
" It's difficult because this is a time when people are very laid off and understandable, "she said. "Things have to be mixed and so people have a lot of passion and very strong feelings and are angry and right. This is an intense time. "
CNN turned to Johansson for further comment.
