Vanessa Hudgens wants to work with controversial filmmaker Woody Allen.
The 30-year-old actress mentioned Woody - who has been accused by his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow of sexually assaulting her when she was seven - in a list of directors she would be keen to work with, which included Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Yorgos Lanthimos, and Gaspar Noé.
She said of the 'Midnight in Paris' director: "I love Woody Allen films. 'Vicky Christina Barcelona' is one of my favourite movies."
And when asked about her choice to mention Woody "given the allegations of sexual abuse against him", Vanessa added to the Los Angeles Times: "I don't know him. I've never met him. I only know what I've heard. And the fact is, I love his films and I love the romantic worlds that are created within [them]."
Woody has denied all allegations against him, and previously claimed he's "done everything the MeToo movement would love to achieve".
He said: "I've worked with hundreds of actresses, not one of them has ever complained about me; not a single complaint. I've employed women in the top capacity for years and we've always paid them the equal of men.
"I've done everything the MeToo movement would love to achieve."
In 2018, Allen admitted to being frustrated that he's still being asked about the Dylan Farrow case.
The award-winning director also insisted he was supportive of the MeToo movement, which evolved following the Hollywood sex scandal.
Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson also previously defended the 83-year-old director, and recently addressed her comments when she said she thinks it would be "dangerous" for her to "temper" her thoughts.
She said: "Even though there's moments where I feel maybe more vulnerable because I've spoken my own opinion about something, my own truth and experience about it - and I know that it might be picked apart in some way, people might have a visceral reaction to it - I think it's dangerous to temper how you represent yourself, because you're afraid of that kind of response.
"That, to me, doesn't seem very progressive at all. That seems scary."
