Cate Blanchett cancels morning show appearances after Philip Seymour Hoffman's death

Cate Blanchett, one of the stars of George Clooney’s Monuments Men, which opens this weekend, canceled her promotional morning show appearances. The Oscar-winner had been scheduled to appear on both Good Morning America and Live! With Kelly and Michael on Wednesday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Blanchett’s rep said the interviews were canceled “to allow Cate the time and privacy to grieve for the loss of her friend Philip Seymour Hoffman.”

Blanchett starred with Hoffman in 1999′s The Talented Mr. Ripley. She and her husband Andrew Upton remained close to Hoffman throughout the years.

Woody Allen responds to Dylan Farrow's abuse claims

After Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, wrote a first-person essay for The New York Times on Saturday detailing the alleged sexual abuse she endured as a 7-year-old, Allen has responded, calling her claims “untrue and disgraceful.”

“Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful,” a rep for the Oscar-winning director said in a statement. “He will be responding very soon.”

We will update when Allen’s full statement is released.

Allen’s attorney, Elkan Abramowitz, also sent a statement to Mother Jones. “It is tragic that after 20 years a story engineered by a vengeful lover resurfaces after it was fully vetted and rejected by independent authorities. The one to blame for Dylan’s distress is neither Dylan nor Woody Allen.”

Dylan Farrow also called out some of the actors in Allen’s movies in her essay, including Blue Jasmine stars Alec Baldwin and Cate Blanchett, asking, “What if it had been your daughter?” Blanchett and Baldwin responded over the weekend.
