(Newser) – Susan Sarandon has slammed Woody Allen at the Cannes Film Festival where allegations of sexual assault have been renewed against the director. Speaking at a "Woman in Motion" talk on Sunday, Sarandon said of Allen: "I think he sexually assaulted a child and I don't think that's right." Sarandon, who was speaking alongside Geena Davis, declined to comment further on the subject, the AP reports. Allen's daughter, Dylan, has said he molested her when she was 7. Allen has denied it. Allen's Cafe Society opened the festival on Wednesday; he was slammed by his son the same day and also had to endure a rape joke from the emcee at his premiere. (Read more Woody Allen stories.)
