Woody Allen Responds to Dylan Farrow's Sexual Abuse Claims

Woody Allen Responds to Dylan Farrow's Sexual Abuse Claims

Woody Allen has responded to the allegations from his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow that he sexually abused her when she was just 7-years-old.

Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon,” the filmmaker’s rep told Mother Jones in a statement. “At the time, a thorough investigation was conducted by court appointed independent experts. The experts concluded there was no credible evidence of molestation; that Dylan Farrow had an inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality; and that Dylan Farrow had likely been coached by her mother Mia Farrow. No charges were ever filed.”

The new statement comes just after his Blue Jasmine stars Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin, who were both called out in Dylan‘s open letter, responded to the allegations as well.

    Woody Allen is the disgusting person. He has hired flunkies and sycophants to post disgusting and ugly attacks against Dylan and Mia Farrow on the New York Times page.

    Meanwhile, if Connecticut had a better statute of limitations law, they could still nail Allen:

    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — The Connecticut prosecutor who investigated Woody Allen on child molestation claims more than 20 years ago but didn’t file charges says it’s too late for the film director to be prosecuted.
    Former Litchfield County state attorney Frank Maco said in a phone interview Sunday with The Associated Press that the statute of limitations on adopted daughter Dylan Farrow’s accusations ran out at least 15 years ago.
    Maco had said in 1993 that he lacked evidence to prosecute Allen but suspected the abuse did occur. He retired in 2003.Dr

    He also slept with Mariel Hemingway when she was 17 and he was in his 40s.

    Well... Says:

    @nope: What downfall?He can’t be fired since he’s not an actor,and lots of artists will still want to work with him,gives them publicity.I can’t say if he’s lying,or if she’s lying,nor if those “memories” are false or real.But the fact is that Dylan can write what she wants,but can’t prove the alleged abuse happened,nor has evidences.Sorry to say,but his reputation won’t get worse than it already seems to be.A lot of people hate or like him,while you’re offending him,he’s rich and getting richer everyday.Nothing will change…i heard about the accusations years ago,never watched his movies(i prefer other types of movies) and i’m not even his fan.If this story is true or not,we’ll never know.He was never charged,sent to jail or considered guilty.Officially,this story is over,real or not,and each story has two sides…you read her side,now it’s his turn to tell his,you l like or not.
    And Sun wasn’t his step-daughter,Mia and Woody never got married…nor lived together.

    Dylan sounds irrational….an apology from Cate and Emma Stone…Puhlease. Being adopted into a family of 15 children….with one very busy mother to look after them all…..can’t possibly have been easy. Her adoptive dad fell (inappropriately yes) in love with her sister, and so he led a happy and and successfully life ever since….could that be Dylans real torment.

    Ya, I will choose not to read his response. Don’t even want to hear his lies.

    @I: She was not his daughter. Do your research. He never adopted her or even lived with her.

    nope Says:

    @Well…: He can’t be fired but producers can sure as hell stop funding his films. And no, we don’t know what happened but can you prove didn’t assault her? what evidence do you have that he didn’t?

    No.7; Mega Dittos. Plus, Manzie Tio’s sexy smallish mouth looks so nice and tight too, can’t wait to meet her in person.

    No.9; You took the words right out of my mouth.
    There is something very kinky about the word ‘creepy’, from a 1980s point of view.

    Anon Says:

    this story seems to create more and more questions, for example, if the molestation/rape occurred when Allen and Farrow were on the outs because of his relationship with Farrow’s adopted daughter Soon-Yi, then why did Allen wait until then to molest/rape Dylan? Prior to that Dylan alleged that Allen touched her inappropriately before, but Allen waits until he hooks up with Soon-Yi to molest his adopted daughter Dylan? Did no one see him go with Dylan into the attic? At this point wouldn’t his visits with the children (including Dylan) have been suspect and monitored, if nothing else, because of his relationship with Soon-Yi?
    these questions aren’t to deny or accuse, just to understand how it could happen at that time of the Allen-Farrow relationship.

    @Domino: Um. I have seen your comments on other threads, pal. She was the SISTER of his BIOLOGICAL SON WITH FARROW. What part of that don’t get you get, pal? Are you a member of NAMBLA?

    PS Woody; You let me cast your virgin daughter in my next off-shore 0014 STEELE indie film onboard Adriana Lima’s yacht tied up in Miami, I take care of your problems with the media.

    @romantica: Oh, there you go. This was written by a sycophantic “friend ” of Allen’s who is very worried that these new developments will deter people from seeing his documentary on Allen. We also know that he hired people to post a link to this stupid and fallacious story on the New York Times comments section. No one is buying this story.

    You are also ignoring the fact that the PROSECUTOR on the case, Frank Maco told the ASSOCIATED PRESS TODAY that he believed the allegations against Allen. He is in law enforcement; the person who wrote the false and self serving piece for the Daily Beast is not. Everyone is on to your shilling this dumb piece by this point. I would advise that you stop posting the same link as you have really, really alienated everyone, pal.

    groundcontrol Says:

    And Dylan’s letter was placed by a family friend on his internet blog. So what’s your point? Obviously friends of each side will weigh in on this. Maco doesn’t know what happened. If he truly believed he had a case against Allen he would have brought it. He didn’t. Enough said about his “belief.”

  24. 24
    groundcontrol Says:

    . . . no, we don’t know what happened but can you prove didn’t assault her? what evidence do you have that he didn’t?
    WTF? What kind of crazy, upside down talk is that? We don’t work that way in this country. You have to prove he did it. And these cases are fairly easy to make in front of a jury. Juries tend to have a knee jerk response to this kind of allegation – just like posters do. They want to believe the accuser and they usually do. It’s very scary at how easy it is to convince a jury of sexual abuse charges.

    You must be on Mia Farrow’s payroll or somehow personally involved … no normal person would comment so often and with so much anger
