In a new interview with Vanity Fair, Kate Winslet said she regrets working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski, two filmmakers whose names have constantly popped up in #MeToo-related discussions.

In the interview, Winslet expressed her regret by saying, "What the f--k was I doing working with Woody Allen and Roman Polanski?" when asked if the #MeToo movement made her look at some of her earlier roles in a new light. She also finds it unbelievable now how the two filmmakers were "held in such high regard" for the longest time.

"It’s f--king disgraceful," she said, adding that she has to take responsibility for the fact that she worked with them both. "I can’t turn back the clock. I’m grappling with those regrets but what do we have if we aren’t able to just be f--king truthful about all of it?"

The Titanic actor, who worked with Allen in Wonder Wheel and Polanski in Carnage, mentioned the same regret in an interview with Variety two years ago, but without mentioning any names. This is the first time that she has explicitly dropped the filmmakers' names.

Polanski, who had pleaded guilty to the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl, fled the United States in 1978. Allen, on the other hand, was accused of molesting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. The latter has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Winslet is in the middle of promotions for her latest drama Ammonite, which is based on the life of British palaeontologist Mary Anning and her romantic liaison with Charlotte Murchison, played by Saoirse Ronan.
