Miley Cyrus defends working with Woody Allen

Miley Cyrus has defended her decision to work with Woody Allen amid his alleged child molestation scandal, insisting she will not judge someone until she knows the whole story.

The Wrecking Ball hitmaker was slammed by Woody's estranged son Ronan Farrow when she signed up to star in the Annie Hall filmmaker's new comedy drama series Crisis in Six Scenes.


He was disgusted his dad still has so much star support after he and his mother, Mia Farrow, accused Woody of sexually assaulting his adopted daughter Dylan.


But Miley insists she only saw one side of Woody, and she never regretted taking on the role.


"I live a similar life to Woody - I live a public life," she tells Variety. "Until I know someone and I know their story, I never really judge anyone. That's kind of how I went into it.


"From the way I saw him with his family, I never saw him be anything but an incredible person and a really great dad. People might slam me for saying that. I'm sure it was a hard time for that family. My family has been through hard things, and I think everyone's suffering is different."


The singer really enjoyed working with Allen, because she has always been a big fan of his movies.


"I loved working with Woody," she adds. "You do, like, two takes. He just wants to go home and have dinner with his wife. One night it was 5.30, and the camera operator wanted to do another take. He goes, 'I can't dedicate my entire life to making movies'."


The moviemaker has never been charged with sexually abusing Dylan, and he has always maintained his innocence, but Ronan is convinced his sister wasn't lying when she opened up about her experiences with their father.
