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.”

This fat cow could never work with someone as woody, go back to the hole where you belong

# 3

She’s such a troll.

# 4

What evidence?

# 5

Why is she even commenting on this?

Her show is nothing but self-obsessed idiots.

And I’m tired of her talking about body image and the pressures of being female in Hollywood when she perpetually and purposefully dresses to make herself look like crap.

# 6

I would never judge someone like Woody Allen or anyone else. I’m not perfect either. It says in the New Testament: “let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”

# 7

@Alyssa: Then you should get a time machine and move back to biblical times when the priests made all the decisions for you. Judging important public issues is essential in modern society.

# 8

agree with her opinion, but still think she’s really self-absorbed. her whole show, her whole schtick, is writing directing and starring as herself. where is the art in that? she’s the taylor swift of television.

@Alyssa
Well she should be fine then as it only refers to men.

@Fix: Judging without facts is stupid.

@Blank: taylor is at least sometimes enjoyable.

and right thinking people are disgusted by you, sloppy no-talent silver spoon yenta
who cares what you think.
don’t you have you have young female minds to warp?

This came from someone who have a ‘talent’. Nepotism product.

So a bewildered Woody articulately and intelligently defending himself in a letter without name calling is disgusting behavior. Okay.

Blah blah blah, she’s just another talentless white privileged kid
Another actor of another would never get the time nor exposure
Don’t see the big del with her, but guess she’s white ppl problem

haven’t seen one episode of Girls, but starting to really like her. At least when she has an opinion, she’s direct about it and not indignant like Scarlett.

You can’t take anything this person says for face value. She is an ignorant and privileged pseudo-feminist who unfortunately has a mouthpiece through her dumbfounding fame. I’m in no way supporting Woody Allen but keep in mind that comment came from someone who chose to work with Terry Richardson. You can’t pick and choose which molester you find disgusting (or who is or is not racist for that matter… Lesley Arfin). And I’m not buying anyone’s separation of art from the person argument (which not to mention is completely disrespectful to the victim). Our society chooses to reward men who should be held accountable for their actions, not have the freedom to make art, however good you might think it is. There is no bigger punch to the gut than seeing your molester celebrated, especially by people you look up to. They are not remorseful, they know they got away with it and that makes them feel invincible.

Ridiculous for her to comment on the Allen/Farrow conflict. Shows her immaturity. The situation is so complex and distorted – at this point, no one on the outside could objectively comment or understand. Only Woody and Mia know, and they have both commented. He was not charged. The authorities allowed him to adopt and raise 2 daughters with his wife, Soon Yi, which would never have happened if there was any validity to the charges. Enough dragging him through the mud.

We have the right to pick what we consume. And if you think Woody Allen doesn’t deserve to be supported, then that’s your right. Which is what she’s saying. What’s everyone else’s problem?

It’s called political consumerism. Google it.

I love how she pretends to know absolutely everything about the case. Stupid fame wh*re.

@Anita:

Anita, well said. I agree with everything in that paragraph.

who he is out in the world is not who is in question…it’s who he is when no one is looking.
That wraps up my opinion about anybody accusing or accused of these things and beyond that really. We are who we present to be and then we are who we are and if the two are worlds apart then the karmic consequences are immense on this person..I don’t necessarily mean in their life as such (because lets face it a **** ton of bad doers get away with it and never see a consequence in their life), I mean in them, in there core, where they truly sit what festers there must be truly awful

has anyone noticed that mindy kaling and lena dunham have the wardrobe of baby girl clowns? the patterns, the skirts, the colors. I’m not trying to be mean, but how would I take anybody seriously like that? and lena dunham’s voice is insufferable. a shrill girl that one. same with kaling’s.

Her dog is so precious.
