Her latest film Lady Bird nabbed two Golden Globe trophies during Sunday night’s awards show.
And Greta Gerwig simply sparkled alongside Soairse Ronan, 23, on the red carpet of the National Board of Review Awards Gala at Cipriani in New York on Tuesday night.
The 34-year-old star donned a glittering golden dress after finally admitting she ‘will not work’ for controversial director Woody Allen again during an interview with the New York Times.

‘Will Kevin Spacey work again? Should he?,’ columnist Frank Bruni asked Greta and Aaron Sorkin during an online conversation. ‘This question came up with Roman Polanski, it comes up with Woody Allen. Should we care about, reward or punish what artists do beyond the parameters of their art? Should it affect their opportunities? Their reception?’
Greta admitted she’s taken her time to gather her thoughts regarding the problematic director.
‘I would like to speak specifically to the Woody Allen question, which I have been asked about a couple of times recently, as I worked for him on a film that came out in 2012,’ she said.

‘It is something that I take very seriously and have been thinking deeply about, and it has taken me time to gather my thoughts and say what I mean to say,’ she shared in the conversation. ‘I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film.
‘I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again.’

Greta has been on the receiving end of backlash from critics for not answering questions regarding the director leading up to the New York Times interview.
‘Dylan Farrow’s two different pieces made me realize that I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realization,’ she said. ‘I grew up on his movies, and they have informed me as an artist, and I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward.’
Greta’s Golden Globes success was overshadowed by her apparent side-step of an sensitive Hollywood topic – working with controversial director Woody Allen.
Woody’s career in the film industry has been a touchy subject for some time after step-daughter Dylan Farrow accused Allen of sexual assault when she was just seven years old in the midst of her mother Mia Farrow’s split from the filmmaker – Woody has always denied her claims.
The #Metoo and #Timesup campaigns had played a big part in the Golden Globes evening, with all but few screen actors wearing black for the award show in protest of recent sexual harassment claims within the industry.
