Paramount+ has released an unearthed interview today, March 28, from July 2020 of Woody Allen on CBS Sunday Morning speaking about his career and controversy. The show’s host takes a very inconclusive approach when introducing the segment, which began with an interview with the famed/defamed movie producer conducted by Lee Cowan followed by Gayle King’s 2018 CBS This Morning interview with Dylan Farrow, where allegations of abuse surfaced.
The special also includes “a report from Erin Moriarty attempting to assess the disconnect between a respected artist’s body of work and that same artist’s controversial personal life,” according to the streaming platform.
Allen has released a new film almost every year since the late 60s, Cowan explains. “If I could do it over, knowing what I know now, I would make better films,” said Allen. “I’d make deeper films. More important films. More substantial, more human, meaningful films. And you know, I do regret that.”
The 4-time Oscar winner says he doesn’t keep his awards on display. “I don’t display anything. There’s no photos of my movies. I don’t save any Playbills of my plays. I don’t even have videotapes of my movies.”
The movie mogul was the recent subject of HBO’s docuseries Allen v. Farrow, which detailed the alleged sexual abuse that Allen was accused of by Dylan. Cowan was interviewing Allen about his new memoir, Apropros of Nothing, which also dives into the scandal that has been following him for almost 30 years.
