Woody Allen Responds One Last Time to Dylan Farrow's Sexual Molestation Accusations

Woody Allen has written an op-ed for the New York Times where he tells his entire version of what his story against the allegations that he sexually abused his daughter Dylan Farrow.

Mia [Farrow] insisted that I had abused Dylan and took her immediately to a doctor to be examined. Dylan told the doctor she had not been molested,” the 78-year-old director wrote. “Mia then took Dylan out for ice cream, and when she came back with her the child had changed her story.”

“Not that I doubt Dylan hasn’t come to believe she’s been molested, but if from the age of 7 a vulnerable child is taught by a strong mother to hate her father because he is a monster who abused her, is it so inconceivable that after many years of this indoctrination the image of me Mia wanted to establish had taken root?” Woody added.

“Of course, I did not molest Dylan. I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter’s well-being,” Woody continued.

In the letter, Woody says this will be his final word on the subject. He also discusses the very controversial topic involving Ronan Farrow‘s real biological father – him or Frank Sinatra.

TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer.

I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan and any rational person would see the ploy for what it was. Common sense would prevail. After all, I was a 56-year-old man who had never before (or after) been accused of child molestation. I had been going out with Mia for 12 years and never in that time did she ever suggest to me anything resembling misconduct. Now, suddenly, when I had driven up to her house in Connecticut one afternoon to visit the kids for a few hours, when I would be on my raging adversary’s home turf, with half a dozen people present, when I was in the blissful early stages of a happy new relationship with the woman I’d go on to marry — that I would pick this moment in time to embark on a career as a child molester should seem to the most skeptical mind highly unlikely. The sheer illogic of such a crazy scenario seemed to me dispositive.

Notwithstanding, Mia insisted that I had abused Dylan and took her immediately to a doctor to be examined. Dylan told the doctor she had not been molested. Mia then took Dylan out for ice cream, and when she came back with her the child had changed her story. The police began their investigation; a possible indictment hung in the balance. I very willingly took a lie-detector test and of course passed because I had nothing to hide. I asked Mia to take one and she wouldn’t. Last week a woman named Stacey Nelkin, whom I had dated many years ago, came forward to the press to tell them that when Mia and I first had our custody battle 21 years ago, Mia had wanted her to testify that she had been underage when I was dating her, despite the fact this was untrue. Stacey refused. I include this anecdote so we all know what kind of character we are dealing with here. One can imagine in learning this why she wouldn’t take a lie-detector test.

Meanwhile the Connecticut police turned for help to a special investigative unit they relied on in such cases, the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital. This group of impartial, experienced men and women whom the district attorney looked to for guidance as to whether to prosecute, spent months doing a meticulous investigation, interviewing everyone concerned, and checking every piece of evidence. Finally they wrote their conclusion which I quote here: “It is our expert opinion that Dylan was not sexually abused by Mr. Allen. Further, we believe that Dylan’s statements on videotape and her statements to us during our evaluation do not refer to actual events that occurred to her on August 4th, 1992… In developing our opinion we considered three hypotheses to explain Dylan’s statements. First, that Dylan’s statements were true and that Mr. Allen had sexually abused her; second, that Dylan’s statements were not true but were made up by an emotionally vulnerable child who was caught up in a disturbed family and who was responding to the stresses in the family; and third, that Dylan was coached or influenced by her mother, Ms. Farrow. While we can conclude that Dylan was not sexually abused, we can not be definite about whether the second formulation by itself or the third formulation by itself is true. We believe that it is more likely that a combination of these two formulations best explains Dylan’s allegations of sexual abuse.”

Could it be any clearer? Mr. Allen did not abuse Dylan; most likely a vulnerable, stressed-out 7-year-old was coached by Mia Farrow. This conclusion disappointed a number of people. The district attorney was champing at the bit to prosecute a celebrity case, and Justice Elliott Wilk, the custody judge, wrote a very irresponsible opinion saying when it came to the molestation, “we will probably never know what occurred.”

But we did know because it had been determined and there was no equivocation about the fact that no abuse had taken place. Justice Wilk was quite rough on me and never approved of my relationship with Soon-Yi, Mia’s adopted daughter, who was then in her early 20s. He thought of me as an older man exploiting a much younger woman, which outraged Mia as improper despite the fact she had dated a much older Frank Sinatra when she was 19. In fairness to Justice Wilk, the public felt the same dismay over Soon-Yi and myself, but despite what it looked like our feelings were authentic and we’ve been happily married for 16 years with two great kids, both adopted. (Incidentally, coming on the heels of the media circus and false accusations, Soon-Yi and I were extra carefully scrutinized by both the adoption agency and adoption courts, and everyone blessed our adoptions.)

Mia took custody of the children and we went our separate ways.

I was heartbroken. Moses was angry with me. Ronan I didn’t know well because Mia would never let me get close to him from the moment he was born and Dylan, whom I adored and was very close to and about whom Mia called my sister in a rage and said, “He took my daughter, now I’ll take his.” I never saw her again nor was I able to speak with her no matter how hard I tried. I still loved her deeply, and felt guilty that by falling in love with Soon-Yi I had put her in the position of being used as a pawn for revenge. Soon-Yi and I made countless attempts to see Dylan but Mia blocked them all, spitefully knowing how much we both loved her but totally indifferent to the pain and damage she was causing the little girl merely to appease her own vindictiveness.

Here I quote Moses Farrow, 14 at the time: “My mother drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister.” Moses is now 36 years old and a family therapist by profession. “Of course Woody did not molest my sister,” he said. “She loved him and looked forward to seeing him when he would visit. She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him.” Dylan was 7, Ronan 4, and this was, according to Moses, the steady narrative year after year.

I pause here for a quick word on the Ronan situation. Is he my son or, as Mia suggests, Frank Sinatra’s? Granted, he looks a lot like Frank with the blue eyes and facial features, but if so what does this say? That all during the custody hearing Mia lied under oath and falsely represented Ronan as our son? Even if he is not Frank’s, the possibility she raises that he could be, indicates she was secretly intimate with him during our years. Not to mention all the money I paid for child support. Was I supporting Frank’s son? Again, I want to call attention to the integrity and honesty of a person who conducts her life like that.

NOW it’s 21 years later and Dylan has come forward with the accusations that the Yale experts investigated and found false. Plus a few little added creative flourishes that seem to have magically appeared during our 21-year estrangement.

Not that I doubt Dylan hasn’t come to believe she’s been molested, but if from the age of 7 a vulnerable child is taught by a strong mother to hate her father because he is a monster who abused her, is it so inconceivable that after many years of this indoctrination the image of me Mia wanted to establish had taken root? Is it any wonder the experts at Yale had picked up the maternal coaching aspect 21 years ago? Even the venue where the fabricated molestation was supposed to have taken place was poorly chosen but interesting. Mia chose the attic of her country house, a place she should have realized I’d never go to because it is a tiny, cramped, enclosed spot where one can hardly stand up and I’m a major claustrophobe. The one or two times she asked me to come in there to look at something, I did, but quickly had to run out. Undoubtedly the attic idea came to her from the Dory Previn song, “With My Daddy in the Attic.” It was on the same record as the song Dory Previn had written about Mia’s betraying their friendship by insidiously stealing her husband, André, “Beware of Young Girls.” One must ask, did Dylan even write the letter or was it at least guided by her mother? Does the letter really benefit Dylan or does it simply advance her mother’s shabby agenda? That is to hurt me with a smear. There is even a lame attempt to do professional damage by trying to involve movie stars, which smells a lot more like Mia than Dylan.

After all, if speaking out was really a necessity for Dylan, she had already spoken out months earlier in Vanity Fair. Here I quote Moses Farrow again: “Knowing that my mother often used us as pawns, I cannot trust anything that is said or written from anyone in the family.” Finally, does Mia herself really even believe I molested her daughter? Common sense must ask: Would a mother who thought her 7-year-old daughter was sexually abused by a molester (a pretty horrific crime), give consent for a film clip of her to be used to honor the molester at the Golden Globes?

Of course, I did not molest Dylan. I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter’s well-being. Being taught to hate your father and made to believe he molested you has already taken a psychological toll on this lovely young woman, and Soon-Yi and I are both hoping that one day she will understand who has really made her a victim and reconnect with us, as Moses has, in a loving, productive way. No one wants to discourage abuse victims from speaking out, but one must bear in mind that sometimes there are people who are falsely accused and that is also a terribly destructive thing. (This piece will be my final word on this entire matter and no one will be responding on my behalf to any further comments on it by any party. Enough people have been hurt.)

    We all know you are a dirty, old man, Woody. There have been rumours about you going after young girls for decades.

    samantha Says:

    I believe Woody, too. But here’s one thing I don’t agree with. He compares his relationship with Soon Yi to Mia’s with Frank Sinatra. As far as I know, Frank Sinatra didn’t have a father figure type relationship with Mia, before they started dating. But, on the other hand, Soon Yi was not Woody’s daughter. Andre Previn was her adoptive father. Woody was the guy her mother was dating.

    As far as I know, even though they spent a lot of time together, Mia & Woody never lived together. So maybe Woody was just an “uncle” figure to Soon Yi. The Soon Yi-Mia-Woody triangle is nothing new. There are lots of ordinary single women out here who have daughters who go after their boyfriends. Soon Yi was not a child.

    She was an adult who obviously had issues with Mia. I think Mia is a very unstable person. She has many fine qualities, but she’s emotionally unstable and she has to resent the fact that Woody has enjoyed so much success and he is being applauded for his work.
    I’m sick and tired of reading about it. Dylan needs help.

    His letter sounds like it was ghostwritten by his lawyers.. it took about a week for him to respond and just regurgitates what his lawyers already said. Dylan has already responded to his letter denouncing his ‘facts’. I remember when Woody’s marriage to Soonyi made it on the covers of People, and I was around the same age as Soonyi.. creeped me out then, still creeps me out now. Dylan’s accusations of what Woody did to her, I don’t know how anyone could coach a 7 yr old to be so specific.

    oe Says:

    This whole thing is a mess. I still believe Dylan though, I think the abuse happened. She was 7 years old at the time, I’m close to her age and I have plenty of memories from that age. No way I would forget a traumatic memory like that. And she is an adult now, living her own life away from Mia so there’s no reason she would be easily manipulated at this age about something like this unless it had some truth to it. Unless she is extremely emotionally unstable there is no way she would make this up or have false memories of what happened. That said, perhaps some of the things about Mia are also true. Perhaps she is controlling and vengeful. I don’t know. Still doesn’t mean the abuse didn’t happen.

    kim Says:

    @someone: She wasn’t his own daughter. Mia adopted her together with her ex-husband Andre Previn.
    Mia has admitted that her son might indeed be from a romance with Frank Sinatra. If this is the case then she met with Frank whilst in a relationship with Woody so that means she would lack some serious morals as well.

    Other than that, I hope for everyone involved that the truth will come out.
    No matter what the truth is, Dylan remains the victim :(

    Truth Says:

    Not only is Woody a perv and pedophile, Soon-Yi is just as sick. Most normal children by the age 13 can clearly distinguish the right from wrong. What type of person does it take to betray your mother and your siblings, basically destroy your family in exchange for an old, unattractive man who is your mother’s boyfriend, and your siblings father? Even if its true that Woody was never around her and she didnt see him as her father, he was still the father to her brother and sister.
    If Woody is innocent, why would he choose to romance this child who is still living with her mother, has no money, no independence, in the sea of rich beautiful women in Hollywood?
    It’s clear that he’s a pervert who wanted a needy child who he can manipulate and not think for herself.
    I dont doubt Dylan’s story one bit based on his eye for underage kids.
    The only reason he’s not in jail is because he’s paid people off to ruin the inestigation and destroy evidence. He wont last long though, hes old and shriveled and the world will be a better place once this sick perv is 6 feet under.

  22. 22
    Domino Says:

    Also, no idea how people can just believe what they want to believe. Think what you want about Woody but if Dylan was actually checked by doctors, and there are records, and it was confirmed that she wasn’t abused, how the ‘fcuk’ do you keep saying he did it? Again, too much ignorance here. Siding with a woman just because she’s a woman is pathetic

    remember da truth Says:

    Mia has proven over and over that she is still bitter about her adopted daughter running off with her lover who NEVER was a father to Soon-Yi, when their relationship was winding down.

    Anyone who believes the stories that Dylan and Mia are throwing out there is refusing to look at facts, for the reason of wanting to hate Allen for their own reasons. For a long time, I believed he was a creep for hurting Mia, but there has NEVER been evidence he was a pedophile. For Mia to throw that out there is SICK, and to try to make her own daughter believe it and live through it, shows who the truly SICK “parent” is.

    Time for Mia to move on. Even his ex-wife, who hated him, has admitted that Mia tried to get her to lie about him going after young girls, and she couldn’t do it. The “rumors” referred to are all started by Mia — he never had a reputation for going after children before Mia started this. Most men do like young girls — Mia married Frank Sinatra at age 19, and had been seeing him for a while before that. Doesn’t make him a pedophile.

  24. 24
    remember da truth Says:

    Soon-Yi has been Allen’s wife for many years. She has been met by many intelligent, worldly people, who all say she is not a brainwashed dupe, but rather a woman who did not bond with her mother, did not like her mother’s pushy ways, and saw her mother no longer in love with her boyfriend, but rather using him as her way to make movies and money. Mia’s lack of work shows she couldn’t stand on her own, and Soon-Yi didn’t like her mother’s hypocritical, using ways. By the time she was a teen, among a dozen or more other adopted kids, she was independent and making her own decisions. She hasn’t been a captive, isn’t a fool, and is perfectly capable of leaving anytime she would have wanted. She has raised her own family quietly, scandal-free. Give the woman more credit.
    Just because you want something to be true, doesn’t mean it is.

    Justina Says:

    @Domino: Doctors are often wrong and sometimes doctors can be bought. People are not believing Dylan because she’s a “woman” as you claim, they believe her because of Woody’s track record. He started a sexual relationship with Mia’s daughter while said daughter was a teenager and he was in his 50′s He obviously likes them young.

  26. 26
    allison Says:

    @Domino: Read Dylan’s response. The judge disregarded what the doctors said because first they were friendly to Allen’s side and second these experts did not keep records or threw away there records. What kid of professionals throw away their notes. Except if there is something different than their conclusion they did not want the judge to know.

  27. 27
    remember da truth Says:

    The most obvious “fact” that proves that Dylan was NOT abused, besides authority after authority more accustomed to dealing with abused children than those who like to attack people on the internet are, is that there was NEVER a mention of any abuse until AFTER Mia’s pride was hurt by her adopted daughter running off with her boyfriend/meal ticket. Granted, that’s an emotional blow, and I have been shocked at meeting women in subsequent years going through a divorce or custody battle who have tried or threatened to try to accuse their estranged partner of sexual abuse to get the upper hand. It’s sick that you would put your own child through that and accuse someone of it just because you are bitter.

    Why on earth would someone in a public breakup, already a scandal, and faced with a custody battle, choose that moment to molest their child? Especially when it had never happened before, nothing like it ever before or since? Pedophiles are famous for covering their tracks. Anyone with any sense can see this is a false accusation. And anyone who has been around kids, especially vulnerable, fragile ones as by all accounts Dylan was, with an overbearing parent, can attest to their saying and doing whatever that parent wants them to.

    Teachers have been accused of physical abuse by children that never happened, and the myth that “children don’t lie” has been disproved over and over. Use a little common sense, and anyone can see this is a horrible manipulation by a woman who 20 years later, still can’t get over her own issues with an ex.

    Dylan's response to WA Says:

    Once again, Woody Allen is attacking me and my family in an effort to discredit and silence me – but nothing he says or writes can change the truth. For 20 years, I have never wavered in describing what he did to me. I will carry the memories of surviving these experiences for the rest of my life.
    EARLIER: Woody Allen Slams Mia Farrow’s ‘Shabby Agenda’: ‘To Hurt Me With A Smear … Smells A Lot More Like Mia Than Dylan’
    His op-ed is the latest rehash of the same legalese, distortions, and outright lies he has leveled at me for the past 20 years. He insists my mother brought criminal charges – in fact, it was a pediatrician who reported the incident to the police based on my firsthand account. He suggests that no one complained of his misconduct prior to his assault on me – court documents show that he was in treatment for what his own therapist described as “inappropriate” behavior with me from as early as 1991. He offers a carefully worded claim that he passed a lie detector test – in fact, he refused to take the test administered by the state police (he hired someone to administer his own test, which authorities refused to accept as evidence). These and other misrepresentations have been rebutted in more detail by independent, highly respected journalists, including this most recent article here:
    With all the attempts to misrepresent the facts, it is important to be reminded of the truth contained in court documents from the only final ruling in this case, by the New York Supreme Court in 1992. In denying my father all access to me, that court:
    Debunked the “experts” my father claims exonerated him, calling them “colored by their loyalty to Mr. Allen”, criticizing the author of their report (who never met me) for destroying all supporting documentation, and calling their conclusions “sanitized and therefore less credible”.
    Included testimony from babysitters who witnessed inappropriate sexual behavior by my father toward me.
    Found that “there is no credible evidence to support Mr. Allen’s contention that Ms. Farrow coached Dylan or that Ms. Farrow acted upon a desire for revenge against him for seducing Soon-Yi. Mr. Allen’s resort to the stereotypical ‘woman scorned’ defense is an injudicious attempt to divert attention from his failure to act as a responsible parent and adult.”
    Concluded that the evidence “…proves that Mr. Allen’s behavior toward Dylan was grossly inappropriate and that measures must be taken to protect her.”
    Finally, the Connecticut State prosecutor found “probable cause” to prosecute, but made the decision not to in an effort to protect “the child victim”, given my fragile state.
    From the bottom of my heart, I will be forever grateful for the outpouring of support I have received from survivors and countless others. If speaking out about my experience can help others stand up to their tormentors, it will be worth the pain and suffering my father continues to inflict on me. Woody Allen has an arsenal of lawyers and publicists but the one thing he does not have on his side is the truth. I hope this is the end of his vicious attacks and of the media campaign by his lawyers and publicists, as he’s promised. I won’t let the truth be buried and I won’t be silenced.

    Everyone with a brain can see that this is madwoman’s spin. And to all those who say Woody’s work is a testament to his crime, can’t possibly have seen his movies (probably because a lack of IQ) And spare me for the Manhattan example….that movie relationship was devoid of creepiness and full of genuine love.

    The fact that Dylan and Mia are using the media to get through to Woody, says everything to me. Tell him to his face if you got something to say Dylan, that’s what real and true victims do to heal their pain, and you’ve had every chance for the last 22 years….if it wasn’t for that Crawford type of mother of yours.

    What is driving Mia crazy is that she wasn’t able to destroy Woody Allen’s career. It’s not rocket science to see that all this is suddenly rising to the surface again, 20 years later, because Woody got a lifetime achievement award and he has had more than one award nomination for recent movies.

    kelli Says:

    I think he had to respond because of the pressure recently from these accusations and to protect his movie and stars who are up for awards at the academy awards. it might cost cate blanchett her award because it’s so fresh in the minds of people. I think it’s interesting that he calls Mia’s integrity into question when he crossed the line with his then-daughter; he’s not as squeaky clean as he says. she might have been 20 when they married, but she was significantly younger when he was having sex with her (likely in the home) and was allegedly in her teens when he took naked pics of her in the home. mia is definitely filled with hate and rage, but perhaps because she knows the truth and is upset we area all blind to it?? Woody is an exceptionally talented man, but the fact that he also stays away from all awards ceremonies and his peers kinda of says something about him too.

    remember da truth Says:

    Justina you say doctors are often wrong. My guess is that if the doctors (plural, by the way, from different institutions) had found Dylan to be abused, you would be arguing that they are experts and should be believed.
    Bottom line, you WANT abuse to have taken place, and are somehow emotionally invested in what this family has been through. Ask yourself why you want this to have happened? It flies in the face of every fact, every circumstance surrounding this case. There is nothing akin to a pedophile in Allen’s actions before or since. Anyone mentioning Sandusky can point to MULTIPLE cases. No one has come out of the woodwork to even try to make a buck off of claiming to have been abused by Allen. Michael Jackson had multiple cases thrown at him. Allen has had only a bitter ex making up stories no authority could find credence in.
    Time to get over it, Justina, and solve your OWN issues.

    remember da truth Says:

    Men liking young women in their late teens is not the same as being a pedophile and abusing a 7-year-old child. Mia herself married at 19. So did Lady Diana. Soon-Yi was an independent young woman who had lived a life unlike most people that made her grow up quickly. She wasn’t even adopted until 8 years old. If being with Allen were a phase, she would have left him by now. She wouldn’t be able to adopt children of her own if she were a damaged, brainwashed little fool.
    Pictures found by Mia — who by the way, was already on the rocks with Allen which is why she was searching his apartment while not there to find the pictures — were recent, and not of Soon-Yi as a young girl. Mia was about to lose her meal ticket, and was jealous when Allen told her he didn’t want to see her anymore. Not only a younger woman, but her own adopted daughter is, granted, a huge blow, but Dylan and the rest of the family didn’t deserve to be ripped apart by Mia’s emotional instability.

    Kelli, staying away from awards ceremonies does not make a pedophile! LOL! He doesn’t believe that artists should be in competition, or that one did a better job than another. He does NOT stay away from his peers. He makes a movie a year, with top stars, all over the world. He has been seen in restaurants and at Knicks games with friends and peers.

And oh yeah Mia sounds really bitter.. so far her responses to this do not bash Woody, but rather show her support for Dylan. Meanwhile, Woody continues to try and paint Mia as a crazy person, if he really thinks that why doesn’t he sue for defamation.

    - We all have a different moral compass

    –Mine says dating your partners child who you have known for 10 years since age 9-10 is disturbing

    -Woody needs to address the 28 year old who made the allegations not Mia

    -Why did Woody adopt 2 daughters who are clones of Soon Yi and Dylan and which adoption agency handed over those two children to him

    -How can you even justify the fact that you dated a woman for over decade and you played father figure to only SOME of her children and not the rest. If so why wasnt Soon Yi upset and hateful of him

    -The relationship with Soon Yi seems to have been ongoing way before the official age they both claim

    -I empathize with the Farrow Previns..in a family with adoptive parents the boundaries on FAMILY relationship should be clearcut and strong. If Woody can walk away 20 years from those children he could have walked away from Soon Yi to bring some peace to the family he devastated

    -Soon Yi and Woody are simply two sick individuals who have lied to themselves that they are in a RELATIONSHIP …(supplemented by mommys lookalike and previous victims lookalike)

    - When an issue is at hands most people tend to engage in character assassination rather than examine the case. So Mia is crazy huh../.have an affair with my daughter and take naked pictures and you will find out MIa is relatively SANE compared to me

    -If MIA is so crazy how do you explain the amazing work she has done with her kids…two graduating under age 18 from college or law school , all dedicated to helping out mankind…if she is cray then give me some of that rather than prozac

    -Do not vilify the victim irrespective of what side you take.

    -If this is Karma then we all have a lot to learn because Mia payback is just too much for any mother to bear..and why the children

    -Why does Soon Yi still call herself Previn, the mad disowned her for her actions and none of the kids from that half are in contact with her…

    I think Mia made the whole thing up to get back at smear Woody’s reputation after she was out of a job, a boyfriend and a daughter. The timing of the Farrow family is really telling, whatever happened or did not happen Dylan should take this matter to court or in private and move on. How long her 15 minutes is gonna last? She said her piece, got enough attention… now is time for therapy.

    I am glad that Soon Yi’s actions did not put Mia off adopting more children. They say the actions of our parents can resound throughout our lives but Soon Yi deftly turned the tables.

    My thoughts are that Soon Yi most likely duped her way into Mia’s life and lied about her age while she plotted quietly away in the corner and Mia was too busy taking on other children. They need to trace Soon Yi back to where they got her, because something about that girl is offff!!

    Woody might know and she knows whats up with Woody so they stay in that marriage to protect each other

    I have changed my mind about Woody Allen over the last week. I’m not his fan, but I have enjoyed some of his movies. I’m going to say that I BELIEVE HIM now. He has spoken out about it again and I don’t believe he is lying. You have to think about human behavior for a sec. Woody Allen was not a child when this all happened. He had already been in long relationships with attractive adult women. He was well known. I think he was old enough to know what molesting a little girl would do to his life. I don’t believe he would take that risk. Would you? Only a complete idiot would take that risk OR a true “out-of-control” pedophile. They will not just do it once, but continue that behavior. No one else has come forward and claimed that Woody Allen molested her. Also, he has now been in a long marriage to Soon Yi. ……… If he was a complete sicko, we would have heard it by now. As for Dylan, I also believe she WAS molested……. BUT by someone else. Maybe she is confused because it was traumatic for her and she was just a little girl. I think it is definitely possible.

    Yea it’s not really “telling” at all without more info.
    .
    Polygraph experts do not belong to any “team.” They are independent experts. Yes, they get hired by one side or the other but the same ones are often used by both sides – govt and defense. The best ones are often retired FBI polygraph examiners and I have used those in my cases. There are good ones and there are those not so proficient. The ones you should be suspect of ARE the ones who are actually employees of the government because they can be considered biased as opposed to independent contractors. Defense attorneys do not have polygraph examiners on staff.
    .
    These independent experts are not going to lie for any client – if a defense attorney gets results that won’t help the client then he just doesn’t say anything. No one would even know the test was administered.
    .
    It’s also a mistake to suggest that the government does not use polygraphs as an investigative tool. They do and they can be very useful. So just because the results are not admissible in court does not mean they are not used. Defense attorneys do have independent examiners conduct exams and the prosecution does dismiss cases based on those results.
    .
    Unless we know who the examiner was the state offered to administer a second polygraph to Allen and why they wanted another one then you aren’t in a position to “tell” anything from it. Further, I can see Allen refusing to take a second test before Mia took her first polygraph. That’s a entirely reasonable position to take.
    .
    People who seem hell bent on finding Allen to be a child molester are grasping at straws, and making unfounded assumptions and meaningless correlations to get to the verdict they want. A verdict that so far is innocent.

    Where do you get this from? Mia found them when she used her key to access Woody’s apartment. She and Woody were ending their relationship – I think they hadn’t had sex since Satchel/Harmon/Seamus/Ronan was born and Woody had told her he wanted to end it.
    .
    Mia was snooping in his apartment hoping to find something maybe about another woman and found the pictures. I thought she found them in a pretty open place – IIRC – but that part I don’t remember as well – I do remember thinking if it was true that Mia found them where I read she found them then maybe Soon Yi put them there deliberately.
    .
    There are so many falsehoods floating around about this case and naturally there are always those who want to grab at those falsehoods and leap into their own perverse fantasy world of sexual abuse and perversion. No wonder psychology and therapy is such a lucrative business.

    just asking.... Says:

    After all the huge scandal btw Mia, Woody, and Soon Yi, did Mia Farrow ever move on with another man or marry? I could look it up, but I’m too lazy this afternoon. It is very telling if she did not. No matter what, for Mia’s own well- being, she needed to come to terms with the relationship between Woody and Soon Yi. And it would have helped her greatly if she had moved on and found love with a better man for her. It hurts less to deal with affairs and what not if you eventually find love and someone who really steals your heart again. Happiness is healing and the best revenge. Personally, I don’t see how Soon Yi can feel totally content now, as Woody Allen is really old. He looks like an old man now. His years are numbered. Unfortunately there is a good chance that Soon Yi will be a younger widow or have to care for him through illness. That is just no fun at all. Seriously. I personally would never marry a much older man. Ten years is about the limit, preferably five. I don’t care who he is or how much money he has.

    Woody is 78 and will die soon enough and if you know much about his thought process he doesn’t care that much what the masses think of him now- let alone when he is dead.
    His main concern I am sure is for his two kids that live with him now. No one seems to care how this thoughtless mud slinging 20 years later with no new evidence will hurt those teenagers. I hope they are ok. And no- there is nothing to suggest that he is hurting them now. They are old enough they could talk or run or anything but people who say that are just assuming again.

    she was coached Says:

    Doctor Cites Inconsistencies In Dylan Farrow’s Statements :
    The doctor who headed the Connecticut investigation into whether Woody Allen molested his 7-year-old daughter, Dylan, theorized that the child either invented the story under the stress of living in a volatile and unhealthy home or that it was planted in her mind by her mother, Mia Farrow, a sworn statement released yesterday says.
    Dr. John M. Leventhal, who interviewed Dylan nine times, said that one reason he doubted her story was that she changed important points from one interview to another, like whether Mr. Allen touched her ******. Another reason, he said, was that the child’s accounts had “a rehearsed quality.” At one point, he said she told him, “I like to cheat on my stories.”
    Dr. Leventhal said: “We had two hypotheses: one, that these were statements that were made by an emotionally disturbed child and then became fixed in her mind. And the other hypothesis was that she was coached or influenced by her mother. We did not come to a firm conclusion. We think that it was probably a combination.”
    The doctor acknowledged that “We don’t have firm evidence that Miss Farrow coached or directed Dylan to say this.”
    Dr. Leventhal’s remarks were part of a sworn statement made on April 20 and entered into evidence in Mr. Allen’s lawsuit to gain custody of Dylan and the couple’s two other children. A transcript of the statement was made public yesterday, after editing by both sides to remove some of the most sensitive material.
    The custody trial will conclude this week, with closing arguments beginning today.
    Dr. Leventhal headed the hospital team that was asked by the Connecticut State Police to investigate the claim that Mr. Allen molested Dylan last August at Miss Farrow’s summer home in Connecticut. The team told Mr. Allen and Miss Farrow on March 18 that it had concluded that Dylan was not molested, but the transcript gives the first look at the thinking behind that finding.
    Dylan’s statements in interviews at the hospital contradicted each other and the story she told on a videotape made by Miss Farrow, Dr. Leventhal said. “Those were not minor inconsistencies,” he said. “She told us initially that she hadn’t been touched in the vaginal area, and she then told us that she had, then she told us that she hadn’t.” ‘Intense Relationship’
    The doctor suggested a connection between Miss Farrow’s outrage over Mr. Allen’s affair with her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Farrow Previn, and the accusation made by Dylan, who he said was unusually protective of her mother. “It’s quite possible — as a matter of fact, we think it’s medically probable — that she stuck to that story over time because of the intense relationship she had with her mother,” he said.
    Even before the claim of abuse was made last August, he said, “The view of Mr. Allen as an evil and awful and terrible man permeated the household. The view that he had molested Soon-Yi and was a potential molester of Dylan permeated the household.”
    Dr. Leventhal said it was “very striking” that each time Dylan spoke of the abuse, she coupled it with “one, her father’s relationship with Soon-Yi, and two, the fact that it was her poor mother, her poor mother,” who had lost a career in Mr. Allen’s films.
    He also said it was possible that Miss Farrow encouraged her child to fabricate simply by videotaping her telling the story, because Dylan liked to perform.

    Didn’t Mia’s brother, the police chief, recently got arrested for downloading child pornography and molesting kids? John Villers Farrow: arrested, tried and convicted in MD for sexual abuse of young boys. Was HE ever suspected of abusing Dylan? She was SEVEN years old. It is NOT unreasonable to question what a 28 year old says she remembers about an incident that happened when she was 7. A lot of falsely accused people are on death row.

    Ok, I love woody allen movies. I think mia farrow seems like a really bitter person.
    I read this letter and saw a lot of truth in it. I think he probably said what he had to say. I myself have been abused as a child and I know what domination and manipulation can do to a young person. And with mia farrow and her daughter, I see that mia is acting like an abuser (mental) and probably putting false memories in her brain. She seems dominating, both in her eyes and in her words. I saw her twitter account during the golden globes. It was really fishy to me. Exposing her hate for Woody allen through her daughter in her tweets on a hollywood night is really gross. Something as tragic as a child abuse must not be a headline or a vengeful tweet. If you want to talk about it, you do it personnally and you protect your daughter instead of using her as a tool for revenge when the person you are accusing is getting an award. That’s my point of view. I wasn’t there but I see a lot of lies and Mia saying those things on twitter is a very unprofessional way to do it. people around you have to support you if something happen, and when you speak, it has to come from you, not another person throwing it around on the internet. that’s why I thought it was suspicious on mia’s part. That’s how I see it. I don’t know mia in person but she did throw it out there for the world to see so….

    lies, lies, lies Says:

    Mia Farrow has made it her life’s work to destroy Woody Allen and I would not be a bit surprised if she did in fact coach Dylan and plant false memories in her brain from an early age.
    Collecting child support of a man you claim had molested your daughter(s) and who by the way wasn’t even Ronan’s real father is a big no no. As is approving a montage of his movies at The Golden Globes before going on a rant on Twitter, days before your daughter conveniently release a dramatic open letter.
    - Let me remind you that Mia Farrow took 3 days to film her daughter’s account rather than promptly calling police and pediatrician is troubling on its face and feels emotionally abusive. And she had edited the footage before releasing it to the authorities.
    - The statements by 2 nannies that they were pressured to support Mia’s version when their experience contradicted hers, to the point that one nanny resigned in protest.
    - Moses’s statement about Mia’s brainwashing ways and the fact that he’s re-established connections with Woody Allen are suggestive of the emotional trauma suffered by that family.
    - Dylan changed her story so many times the first time and looked like what she was telling them had been rehearsed with her mother.

    @lies, lies, lies: i agree with this, and I agree with Woody’s letter as well. It seams pretty clear to me that this was crafted by Mia Farrow to get back at him for leaving him. But the sad part is that Dylan who was a young girl (now a woman) was used in the process as a toy and a weapon against her father. All these allegations from Dylan and Mia are too scattered for me. It’s too much of a mise en scène.

    Joan Says:

    Ronan/Satchel and Dylan/Malone’s problems started at least with their mother, Mia Farrow, changing their names. That act is so bizarre, so sick. Despite her advocacy for children, Farrow has her demons. I have never for a moment believed Mia Farrow’s claims. The tape she produced to investigators after Allen left her were proven to be doctored. She’s a professional actress who was bitterly scorned. Investigators have time and again said there was no evidence to produce criminal charges. They said there were too many inconsistencies in her story and that Dylan was obviously coached. Mia has had almost 2 decades to continue planting false memories. First it was that he touched her shoulder, then it was that he touch her elsewhere, then it was that he “went all the way”. He took a lie detector test and passed. She refuses to take one because she has clearly things to hide. I think we live in a culture where a woman can just accuse a man of such crimes and the public will crucify him so she plotted this as her revenge.
    If you are so traumatized Dylan, please seek professional help. If you believe you have been victimized, please explore your legal options. That is how adults handle issues, not on social media to get attention from strangers.

    Brooke Says:

    Woody’s statement is filled with half-truths to make himself look better. Woody only married Soon-Yi to make himself look better. He can never divorce Soon-Yi because if he does, she might tell the truth about how old she actually was when he started having sex with her. I believe Dylan because Woody clearly had/has a thing for young girls. Even in his movies, he put inapproriate scenes with young teenage girls in some of them. And now he has only adopted little girls…

    Elle Says:

    Firstly, Soon-Yi was never his daughter. She was adopted by Mia and Andre Previn. Andre is her adopted father, Woody never was. Soon-Yi also was NOT a teenager at the time they started dating. She was in her early 20s. Older than when Mia started a relationship with Frank Sinatra (who was still technically in her teens). Granted it is unusual, to say the least, that they started a relationship under those circumstances.
    Secondly, everyone saying there’s enough truth out there to support Dylan’s accusations, where are you getting those “facts” from? Mia. And Dylan who appears to be continuously coerced by Mia. There are documented sources about where Woody was and what he was doing all through that time period. Not to mention the investigation. And Dylan’s going back and forth with her story. Children are not stupid and know the difference between truth and lies though are very easily influenced by mothers. Children who are abused show signs. It seems Dylan never did before that day.
    I am more inclined to believe Woody’s story not just because of his statement but because there are many correlating his. Mia refused to take a lie detector test when she should have been most willing and the person with the least to hide. She claims to be a staunch supporter of child abuse victims yet we never hear her say a word about her brother who is currently in prison for child molestation. Nor about her continued support of director and close friend Roman Polanski who WAS convicted and deported for the rape of a 13-year-old girl. Not to mention she did have to give her permission for the clip of her to be used in Woody’s honorary award reel. Which why would a mother allow her face to be used to honor the man she is claiming molested her daughter?? So she can get more publicity and her face is out there in the media once again.
    Mia strikes me as vindictive and spiteful and not trustworthy because of all the actual facts that are easily found but people seem perfectly fine being ignorant about.
    Child abuse should never be taken lightly nor should it be used to destroy someone’s life who could very easily be innocent.

    He’s a ****** old man. If Mia cheated on him with Frank, well, at least Frank wasn’t Woody’s son. Mia was wrong to cheat yes but…she wasn’t cheating with Woody’s child.

    Woody committed the grave sin of sleeping with Mia’s daughter and then leaving Mia for her. You don’t do that to people you supposedly love. Of course Mia would be bitter.

    Woody is plain stupid. You don’t EVER date a girl who is the best friend of your ex or the child of your current gf/live in. When others who in the same circle of close friends and family are around, you don’t date them. Stay away until you break up with the other one and THEN make your move.

    I think Dylan is telling the truth. Look at the cost of her truth vs his right now. She’s putting her entire reputation on the line. One of them is lying and I think it’s him based on his undying skankitude.

    I had suspected Woody Allen all these years, though I knew for decades Mia is off balance. (Anyone old enough to remember her famous hair chop manuever to get Frank Sinatra’s attention?) In spite of her move on Andre Previn, in spite of her other actions, I believed her child, and wanted to think ill of Woody. Mia convinced me of Allen’s innocence when out of the blue, playfully mentioned Woody’s and her son might be Frank’s afterall. That act showed an eggregious disconnect from reality on her part. And to make sense of her poor judgement, I figured she was drunk tweeting. Evenso, not right Mia! Your children are not dolls in your playhouse! Not right!

    Re. Woody Allen & Dylan
    .
    There are various take on the controversy. I read an interesting comment posted I found from another site… Let me share this to anyone who is interested:
    .

    .
    (source: CB)
    .
    “Kiddo says:
    February 9, 2014 at 9:02 am
    ..
    While I never intended to comment on this again because it is gut-wrenchingly sickening, and I am powerless to create resolve, I do feel motivated to say this: The man takes no responsibility for any harm he caused the family and it appears that he is devoid of true empathy and self retrospection.
    .
    Even if Mia was cheating with Frank at the time, Frank was outside of the family unit. Woody didn’t know about it. Woody proceeded to embark on a sexual relationship with a member of the family that, although he has stated he didn’t raise, he was surely aware of since she was a small child, and he was aware that she shared siblings with the other children that he either fathered or adopted.
    .
    “I was in the blissful early stages of a happy new relationship with the woman I’d go on to marry”. His framing of this relationship, with one of the siblings of his children, and the daughter of the woman for which he had a committed enough relationship that he made legal their shared parentage of children, as a completely innocent endeavor, is astonishingly tone deaf and demonstrably narcissistic. He acknowledges no impact outside of what it meant for his own desires. Even with all of the time that has passed, even if he remains with his wife, and even if Mia is the craziest woman to ever exist on the planet, he still can’t accept any wrong-doing, harm, or grossly inappropriate crossing of boundaries. He sees his relationship with Soon Yi in a vacuum, for his own purposes and pleasure, with no regard for other people it affected. Not even his own children. Not even after contemplation does he have a revelation that his actions set in motion the entire set of circumstances, even if I am to accept that he isn’t a molester.
    .
    He needn’t have apologized for his present day marriage, but he sure as hell could have analyzed his own decisions made with arrogant selfishness, years ago, that obliterated this family unit. There was not one apology for the harm that he caused, not to Mia, not to the other children, not to Soon Yi, who also lost siblings in the aftermath. He pens himself as a guiltless victim of other people’s malignant personalities and motives, much like how he might write himself as a character in a script.
    .
    If for nothing else, even if I leave for suspension of disbelief as to him not being a child molester, I find him revolting for being callous and self-serving, with a life truly unexamined. His ignorance, responding in the manner that he did, perpetuating and even fueling a feud with Mia, should also be noted, in contrast to whatever brilliance he is routinely credited with. He threw kerosene on a flame and offered no contrition, even in the smallest degree. He mentions that there is pain, but accepts no burden of it. He is intellectually dishonest in his assessment of personal culpability, which then calls into question everything that he defends or advances. I’m done. “

    ... Says:

    Just so everyone knows, it is extremely typical for the abuser in this sort of situation to blame the mother in this way and deny everything. His response is absolutely textbook. Also abusers like this rarely if ever stop, or have gender preference, they just abuse children when they have the opportunity ( or when they create the opportunity)… I wonder if something happened to Mose as well and it’s too hard for him to face? People do just black it out because it is too painful.
    It is also typical for the survivor to take a long time to heal and have the courage to stand up, which fits Dylan coming out with this 20 years later. It’s a shame that she has to go through not only the betrayl of family that occurs in these abuse cases but also the general public that sides with her abuser and celebrates him, that would be very difficult!
    Also interesting coincidence that he has known Soon Yi since she was 8 years old … And he had a secret relationship with her while with Mia…

    i don’t think he needed to say he was sorry . His op-ed was only for the purpose of defending himself in this current situation which he has a right to do.
    I am sure in private with moses and those willing to listen he might say those things.
    he doesnt owe the public that. Does Mia need to say sorry to Barbara for cheating with Frank in public? Be consistent.

    If you all try to just imagine all this graphic pictures of a 52 year old man taking nude pictures of a 16-17 years old (not even 18-19, and who knows when it started) adopted girl to whom he had access. Luring her in his sexual fantasies and offering and imposing on her his decayed, ugly and old body, you will all be disgusted. But you do not want to do that, it is too ugly. The same way these innocent young people block it from their memories for a long time. Wait until that same young girl, now his wife, unblocks her own memories one day. It is way too ugly, and you, who defend him, are all very nice people and you do not like ugliness. It is easy for you to find ways to just OK it. This makes you so special and so open minded that you can OK it, as long as it does not happen to you. Or, may be, you are so open minded, that you will like it, done to you by such a famous director.
    This girl is absolutely right to ask all these stars and to ask all of you adults posting here “ What if it was your kid?”
    You bring all kind of stories about adults who did not do what he has done, just to OK it. You bring the fact that Mia Farrow’s brother is in jail. Well, he is paying properly for what he has done. Will WA pay for it too?
    The victims need your support, not your “Oh, it was OK”.
    But, why I am surprised by your reactions? Who were in the pedophile rings busted last year? Did I forget that they were teachers, youth workers, social workers, police, movie industry people. People that we all are supposed to trust.

    Sorry but you cannot “block” and “unblock” “memories” as you suggest. The mind, the brain, memory does not function like that. What people are retrieving at a later time is colored by everything their mind and senses have been exposed to including the poisonous rantings of a mother hell-bent on extracting revenge on her ex and destroying his life.
    .
    Before these allegations were ever made, the Farrow household was full of Mia’s rage against Woody and Soon Yi. The children, including Dylan, were exposed to Mia’s rages against Woody including calling him a child molester for having the affair with Soon Yi, physically beating the crap out of Soon Yi with a telephone, creating messages to Woody like the Valentine’s card and other signs and collages complete with pictures of the family calling Woody a child molester. And NONE of this had anything to do with accusations of Woody molesting Dylan.
    .
    Woody’s alleged “inappropriate” behavior toward Dylan was never about it being sexual.
    .
    The child abuse allegations came AFTER Dylan and the entire farrow household had been subjected to Mia’s rage against Woody from January 1992 until the allegations were made in August 1992. I cannot even imagine what fears and anger were instilled in the minds of the children in that household. Couple that with the children witnessing what Mia did to Soon Yi and anyone who disagreed with her and you have a perfect petri dish for the creation of false accusations as well as Mia-instilled hatred and fear of Woody. The guy didn’t stand a chance with his children given that environment.
    .
    Anyone who brings up what a babysitter says needs to also bring up the fact that the other babysitter said back then and still says that Mia tried to get her to lie about the events of the day of the alleged abuse and to lie about other factors to make Mia look good and Woody bad. This other babysitter quit rather than be subjected to Mia’s attempts to get her to lie under oath. As far as evidence goes if there is evidence of such actions on Mia’s part toward one babysitter then a jury can consider that Mia did the same with the other babysitter who made claims that supported Mia and hurt Woody. So the babysitter that Mia defenders like to cite has serious credibility issues.
    .
    I have to laugh at those who think that the Vanity Fair list of supposed 10 undeniable facts in the case actually accept this as fact. Vanity Fair and Maureen Orth took a side a long time ago and have stuck to their side. They got their info from Mia and her team. The article was told from Mia and Dylan’s POV. It has nothing g to do with objectivity.
    .
    I would also note that every single one of those supposed “undeniable facts” is subject to interpretation and further explanation. It is a list cherry picked to put Mia’s and Dylan’s versions in the best light and Woody’s in the worst.
    .
    There is nothing new to this story. After a 14 month investigation there was not enough to take to a judge to get an arrest warrant nor was there enough to take to a Grand Jury to seek an indictment (formal charges). Asa criminal lawyer I cannot tell you how easy it is to get charges formally made or to get an arrest warrant. Nor is it the role of the prosecutor to declare if there is probable cause – probable cause is determined by a judicial officer or a grand jury. The prosecutor may have an opinion about it but that is all it is. That opinion must be endorsed by a judge or a grand jury for it to have any legal meaning.
    .
    I am also perplexed by those who want to suggest that Woody is lying about Mia’s refusal to take a lie detector test just because she was not asked by the prosecutor. I am sure Woody’s team asked her to take one and there are other entities that may have wanted her to take one. That Mia would not take one is very curious to me. You’d think she’d do whatever she could to help the case.
    .
    Further why didn’t the prosecutor ask Mia to take a polygraph? Is it because he had made his mind up and didn’t want anything like indicators that Mia was lying about implanting memories or what Dylan actually said initially to ruin his case?
    .
    This case was thoroughly investigated 20 years ago. There is no new evidence. This should have been properly left alone.

    I’m not. There’s even more to say but I am tired of all the posters who think they understand how these cases work when they don’t. They are handicapped by a lack of knowledge and understanding that doesn’t deter them from proclaiming their opinion as fact when it is mostly nothing more than their own emotional take on it.
    .
    Reading a legal opinion and reciting it, often incorrectly, when you are not trained to do so doesn’t add to their arguments either.
    .
    People can believe what they want. They do this about lots of celebrities and public figures. They pick and choose which celebrities they want to believe unproven gossip about depending on who they like or dislike. When it comes to such heinous allegations against someone I cannot play this gossip game. It is distasteful, wrong and immoral. It’s wrong, just wrong.

    I don’t believe him for a second. I believe Dylan. Also, why would you marry the girl who was adopted by your ex wife at 8 years old and who is sister to your own children and now their step-mother? That is screwed up. He is an entitled jerk who has been told for way too long how much of a genius he is. People like that think they are invincible. he is a jerk. He did it. it is very clear.

    Anon Survivor Says:

    I think it is awful that people think examining a child physically or even mentally will lead to an abuse discovery. Are you kidding? I was molested as a child and there were no physical scars nor would I have ever admitted to it if any had asked me at 9 years old. I was so ashamed of it. I believe Dylan and I pray that one day Karma will get Woody Allen so he can pay for what he has done. In a way, he is already paying for it. All the money in the world cannot save him from his disgusting behavior including his marriage to his wife’s adopted daughter. Dead giveaway people.

    The records prove she was a legal adult when the affair with Soon Yi started. Most grown older men I know would love to screw a twenty year old, but not a seven year old. You are sick and obviously your dad put his putz in your mouth. Now you see the devil in every face that is accused, see?

    You are lying. Soon Yi was of adult age when Mia suggested Woody start taking her places, because the real stepfather wasn’t good. You need to seriously shove a piece of burning fire iron in your mouth for not getting your facts straight, jerk. Every grown man would screw a 20 year old girl. Not a seven year old.

Children tend to suppress memories from child hood because they cannot comprehend what transpired. This suppression of memories become evident as an adult. One can reminisce about a situation and now make sense of it!

    If a child cannot be believed, then perverts will get away with molestation!

    @samantha: Wouldn’t you be in a blind rage if your boyfriend of 12 years runs off with your daughter? I don’t blame Mia for her anger. He just keeps brining her into to deflect his guilt. I am really does anyone expect him to or another pedophile “yeah I did it” There is a serious problem in Hollywood. The stars are afraid to say anything because they want to be in his movies. It’s really sick. I think he should be charged with it.. There should be no time limits on child abuse cases. He has even said himself inmthe past nobody would be shocked if he was with 15 twelve year olds. He said it himself. No one will touchhim because they get paid off. I wish more people had balls to fight against there hollywood big wigs with their deviant acts.

This was only brought to light because her tormentor is being honored. I would have brought it again too. It’s like being abused again. Woody is a pervert and is a molester. I am very scared for his current children, Somebody should take those children to a child psycologist. I bet then he would get locked up.

    Everyone who supports and believes Allan Stewart Konigsberg’s memoir of a fictional fantasy is going to be held accountable among those when his “reputation” is that of a convicted child rapist. Konigsberg is a perverted man who has made a career out of exploiting woman, crafting roles that pin them as sexualized one-trick whores, who were under his fatherly eyes every minute the camera rolled. When he is finally rotting in his grave, everyone in Hollywood will shun this man for the beast he truly is.

    time to chop wood Says:

    someone said mia ‘couldn’t stand on her’, as in, get work in hollywood.
    -
    well, it is highly likely that the jews who run hollywood blacklisted her because they don’t want to be exposed for their criminal adherence to a child molester who happens to be jewish.
    -
    how many jews have they covered up for besides woody?
    another example is the jewish director polanski who molested a young underage girl in a hot tub.
    i was disappointed when natalie, the jew, from the movie ‘black swan’ supported polanski. she should have known better but because of her jewishness she didn’t care. all she cared about was that he is a jew. she didn’t care as a woman or a human being. she should be ashamed of herself.
    -
    i think you will note that it was all a preponderance of jews who came out in support of polanski, merely because he is jewish.
    the jews are racist and discriminatory and they are breaking the laws of the land. they are breaking hiring and employment practices laws. for example with mia. they are supporting child molesters, only because they happen to be jewish, so somehow its ok in their sick twisted racist inhumane demented neurotic minds because they are jewish.

    to me it looks like a cover up by the jews.

    Soon-Yi's truth Says:

    “Please don’t try and dramatize my relationship with Woody Allen. He was never any kind of father figure to me. I never had any dealings with him. He rarely came to our apartment before his own children were born. Even then, he never spoke and the truth is I never cared that much for him. He was always preoccupied with work and never talked to me. [...] My own father is Andre Previn, who came to visit pretty often and took us all out frequently. When I first got friendly with Woody, he and Mia were finished with their romance and were just friends. I think Mia would have been just as angry if he had taken up with another actress or his secretary. Mia was always very hot-tempered and given to rages which terrified all the kids. They can’t speak freely because they’re still dependent on her. But they could really tell stories and I’m sure one day will. [...] The business of him molesting Dylan is so ridiculous that I won’t dignify it with a comment. Why Dylan repeats her story is another matter, and a sinister one. I was not surprised that Mia made a videotape of Dylan saying these terrible things as I think the motive is obvious, but I was stunned that the tape would somehow find its way to the TV news. [...] I don’t think you can raise 11 (and soon she will have 13) children with sufficient love and care. Take it from one who’s lived through it-it can’t be done. Some of us got neglected, some got smothered. Anyhow, there’s problems. I could say many devastating things about Mia, but I will only do it if I must in a court. From the beginning of their conflict, which I know Woody broke his neck to avoid for the kids’ sake, I have refrained from commenting, but when Mia brought up child molestation and then had her sisters and mother and kids and friends parade out in public and do her dirty work for her, climaxing with that tape of Dylan being given out, I felt I had to speak at this point. I’m not a retarded little underage flower who was raped, molested and spoiled by some evil stepfather-not by a long shot. I’m a psychology major at college who fell for a man who happens to be the ex-boyfriend of Mia. ” – Soon-Yi Previn, 1992.

  193. 193
    remember da truth Says:

    If Dylan were so concerned with “justice”, she could have filed criminal charges. She never did because she knew it wouldn’t stand up in court, or her under oath.
    No one else has EVER accused Allen, an easy target after all this, with molestation. Molesters don’t just do it once, ONE INCIDENT even, and then never again.
    Notice what people say who believe Dylan — they don’t like his looks, can’t understand what Soon-Yi saw in him, felt he cheated on Mia. NONE of those things have any bearing on the truth.

    @Looselipz:

    So, he’s a “claustrophobe.” Couldn’t have been in the attic. At least that’s what he said until he was told his hair had been found up there. Then he said, yeah, well, maybe a few times. How many lies does a man have to be caught in before you start to question his credibility? It’s true. False accusations have been levelled against others. But the one and only judge to hear all the evidence in this case found it compelling and found Woody to be completely without credibility.

  198. 198
    Ken Says:

    @remember da truth:

    On the contrary, there is *absolutely* evidence he was a pedophile. Look up the one court decision related to this matter from the NY Supreme Court in 1993 ruling on WA’s custody motion the week after he was accused of molesting Dylan. The trial judge found and details substantial evidence of WA’s inappropriate attraction to and behavior toward’s Dylan long predating the specific alleged assault in the attic.

  199. 199
    @198 Says:

    no, that behavior toward dylan was not sexual. Look up the details.
    If anyone- and mia especially- thought it was sexual at that time she would have charged/accused him then.
    that is one of the things VF and others are throwing out there and they don’t have the whole picture and already have their mind made up.
