Lena Dunham: 'Disgusted' By Woody Allen, Won't Indict His Work

Lena Dunham chats on her cell phone while walking her dog Lamby on Monday morning (March 17) in Brooklyn, N.Y.

The 27-year-old Girls actress was interviewed by WTF Podcast that day and shared that she is “decidedly pro-Dylan Farrow and decidedly disgusted with Woody Allen’s behavior” in the recent scandal involving the famous family.

“For me, when people go through his work and comb through it for references to child molestation, that’s not the f–king point,” Lena added. “I’m not gonna indict the work. I think that you can decide that you don’t want to support the work of somebody who has molested a child. That’s a completely appropriate choice. But going through it and saying, ‘Look, he’s told us in 57 ways that he rapes kids’ — that’s not the thing.”

“The thing is to look at the actual evidence that exists in the world, which I think strongly suggests that Woody Allen is in the wrong,” Lena continued. “But for me the point is not to go through his one-act plays looking for references to child molestation. Because I’m not comfortable living in a world where art is part of how we convict people of crimes.”
