Scarlett Johansson Opens Up About Being Named in Dylan Farrow's Abuse Letter

Steve Granitz/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- When Dylan Farrow penned an open letter published in The New York Times bringing back up past accusations of abuse against Woody Allen, she called out the actors and actresses who have worked with the film director over the years.

One such actress, Scarlett Johansson, who has starred in three of the legendary director's films -- Match Point, Scoop and Vicky Cristina Barcelona -- has a response of her own in an interview with The Guardian over the weekend.

"I think it's irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on," she fired back. "That just feels irresponsible to me."

Last month, Farrow wrote her side of the story, saying she was abused by Allen in the attic of her adopted mother Mia Farrow's home in 1992.

"Woody Allen was never convicted of any crime. That he got away with what he did to me haunted me as I grew up," she wrote. "What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson?"

Allen has since responded and continued to deny the claims.

As for Johansson's opinion about the Allen/Farrow situation, she remains unbiased.

"I think he'll continue to know what he knows about the situation, and I'm sure the other people involved have their own experience with it," she added. "It's not like this is somebody that's been prosecuted and found guilty of something, and you can then go, 'I don't support this lifestyle or whatever.' I mean, it's all guesswork."

Johansson said that without knowing anything about the situation, she hasn't let the recent reports affect her relationship with the director.

"It would be ridiculous for me to make any kind of assumption one way or the other," she said.
