And there were the stars whose continued work alongside alleged abusers made their black outfits or their Time's Up pins laughably hypocritical.

"Can one be a "vocal campaigner against sexual harassment" and a vocal supporter of Woody Allen?".

Just last month, she tweeted a link to a Hollywood Reporter article titled "Why I will never watch a Woody Allen film again", writing: "Also never really understood the thirst of women who work with him and consider it an achievement it's so confusing". That is an admirable and worthwhile objective, I hope these women change the world.

"That said", she continued, "the people who join this movement without taking any kind of personal accountability for the ways in which their own words and decisions have helped to perpetuate the culture they are fighting against, that's hard for me to reconcile".

Yesterday, the New York Times published a piece on Blanchett, who will headline the jury at this year's Cannes Film Festival, calling her a "vocal campaigner against harassment" and her appointment on the panel "an about-face for a festival with a poor record on gender equality".

Blake Lively, who worked with Allen on his film Cafe Society, has not yet responded.

Both Pompeo and Allen have weighed in on the #MeToo movement that sprung up after Harvey Weinstein was first accused of sexual misconduct and assault, of course on different sides.

The Time's Up initiative made a strong impression at the 2018 Golden Globes to advocate against sexual harassment and abuse. "It's NOT normal." However, while promoting his role in "Wonder Wheel" during an appearance on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert", Timberlake said that working with Woody Allen was a "dream come true".

'I'm honoured to be part of this movement, ' Lively said, accompanied by an image that read: 'To women in every industry who are subjected to indignities and offensive behavior that they are expected to tolerate to make a living: We stand with you.

"I deeply regret working with Woody Allen on Wonder Wheel". I seem to remain secondary to their ambition, which undermines the powerful and embracing message they are trying to send.
