Speaking with Hamptons magazine this week, the 28-year-old gushed (again) about working with the "empowering" movie maker, who has been plagued with sexual assault allegations, while filming the upcoming 1930s drama Café Society.
Miz Lively shared:
"[Woody] creates a very pleasant set where everybody's just happy to be there and happy to be making a movie, and happy to be a part of film history. For him to have that confidence in you almost gives you the confidence in yourself to just go with the flow. And those are the moments that he really likes, the found moments, the moments that aren't written but just happen."
Cannes was certainly not drama free this year as a rape joke at the opening ceremony and a letter penned by Ronan Farrow thrust the allegations of sexual assault against Roman Polanski and Woody Allen back into the headlines.
As a result, several actors who've worked with Allen have since been asked about the separate controversies. On Monday, Adrien Brody addressed the topic on Jenny McCarthy's radio show Dirty, Sexy, Funny, and suggested that an artist's personal life should be separated from their body of work. Oh no.
In case you forgot, Brody won an Oscar for his role in Polanski's film The Pianist and previously made Midnight In Paris with Allen. The A-lister explained:
On Sunday, The Meddler actress told the world how she really feels about the controversial director during Variety and Kering's Women in Motion sit down with her Thelma & Louise costar Geena Davis at the Cannes Film Festival. Whoa.
The 69-year-old shared:
The Cannes Film Festival sure has managed to stir up a lot of controversy!
While helping to promote the film she directed, Money Monster, Foster sat down during Variety and Kering's Women in Motion talk to slam male filmmakers for relying too heavily on rape as motivational backstory for female characters.
The 53-year-old also dished on the shifting business of the entertainment world and claimed that "studio executives are scared" of women.

Even though the 80-year-old is out promoting his new flick Cafe Society at the film festival, he already commented on Ronan's essay claiming he's "said everything [he has] to say about" the situation. However, he apparently hasn't done all he has to do!
That's because it's now being reported that Allen's publicist, Leslee Dart, banned
When it comes to jokes about rape, Blake Lively isn't laughing.
Over a Thursday lunch for the filmmaker's new movie Café Society, the 28-year-old said it was "disappointing" when MC Laurent Lafitte made a dig at Allen's sexual abuse accusations.
She told Variety:
The Hollywood Reporter column just so happened to be released the same day as Allen's latest film Café Society premiered at Cannes.
When asked directly about the 28-year-old's piece by reporters in France, the 80-year-old responded:
"I've said everything I have to say about the whole situation in The New York Times. I have so moved on. I never think about it. I work and do my movies."
He NEVER thinks about it?!
In case you didn't know, the Times article he is referencing is from back in 2014 where he wrote:
