Ronan Farrow Calls Out Kristen Stewart & Many Others for Collaborating with His Dad Woody Allen

Ronan Farrow Calls Out Kristen Stewart & Many Others for Collaborating with His Dad Woody Allen

Ronan Farrow, the son of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, has written a column for THR with regards to victims of sexual abuse and the media’s blind eye — and in it, calls out various celebrities for working with his dad, despite the allegations against him.

Back in 2014, Ronan‘s sister Dylan came forward and revealed Woody had allegedly abused her sexually when she was a child. Ronan addresses the abuse in the piece, and calls out those who collaborate with Woody while turning a blind-eye.

“But the old-school media’s slow evolution has helped to create a culture of impunity and silence. Amazon paid millions to work with Woody Allen, bankrolling a new series and film. Actors, including some I admire greatly, continue to line up to star in his movies. ‘It’s not personal,; one once told me. But it hurts my sister every time one of her heroes like Louis C.K., or a star her age, like Miley Cyrus, works with Woody Allen. Personal is exactly what it is — for my sister, and for women everywhere with allegations of sexual assault that have never been vindicated by a conviction,” Ronan wrote. “Tonight, the Cannes Film Festival kicks off with a new Woody Allen film. There will be press conferences and a red-carpet walk by my father and his wife (my sister). He’ll have his stars at his side — Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Jesse Eisenberg. They can trust that the press won’t ask them the tough questions. It’s not the time, it’s not the place, it’s just not done.

“We are witnessing a sea change in how we talk about sexual assault and abuse. But there is more work to do to build a culture where women like my sister are no longer treated as if they are invisible. It’s time to ask some hard questions,” he continued. Read Ronan‘s entire piece over at THR.

    His sister is a wife or other sister?

  • Lo Mo

    that’s patriarchy.
    three olimpic gold winner swimmers gang-raped an 18-yr-old in Hungary (Europe) , and there are still male journalists calling the act a “youthful mistake” and “consider what they achieved for the country with their medals”

  • Arrow 12

    That man should be in jail. He is also raciest and no one ever calls him out on that too.

  • Doctor Fate

    I think youre asking what the family tree looks like, so here we go.

    *deep breath*

    Ronan Farrow’s mother (Mia Farrow) adopted a girl in the late 70s with her former husband before meeting Woody Allen. Mia and her husband split, then she met Woody Allen and had biological children they never got married. After they split, the adopted daughter moved in with Woody Allen and they got married afterwards.

  • VanityInsecurity

    Team Ronan all the way. Actors continue to justify working with Allen, because it needs to be justified. People still work with Polanski and he was convicted. And I’m sure given the opportunity people would still work for/with Bill Cosby. Some of these actors imo shouldn’t get support from the public. We as the audience hold the very keys to someone’s success. If people stop going to see his films he would stop making them. We are as much to blame.

  • Will

    Absolute respect for him, he doesn’t care about being liked he stands up for what is right. There is no excuse to work with Woody.

  • Cruizin1960

    Ronin trying to make himself relevant by AGAIN whining about Daddy. The word is alleged. Has he ever been convicted of this? Has he admitted to this? We do not try people in the court of public opinion. This entire crusade against him began when Woody and Mia divorced and has just escalated over the years…team Woody and team Mia. I will be the first to condemn him…but unless and until it is proven in a court of law…not going to do it. There have been too many instances of false charges made against people for things like this. It is amazing to me that everyone wants to give Roman Polanski a pass…but not Allen.

  • Magyar Zoltán

    They called the girl a hoo who goes with everyone in the bed and she was not the firs or last victim of them still they where not arrested for the other crimes

  • FerCat

    Allen already got the pass. Polanski will get arrested if he steps foot on US soil.

  • BurbankLady

    You call sexual assault allegations mere “whining?” You refer to charges of Allen molesting his daughter as a “crusade” against him? You are a despicable person.

  • BurbankLady

    Truthfully, I don’t think too many people would still work with Bill Cosby. He’s finished in show biz. As he should be.

  • LaCroix

    really? I think some black artist might give him another chance after everything dies down..

    He is right. I agree with him. Woody gets away with it because he is a Hollywood jew and because he is a talented director. That is no excuse for sexual abuse.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    I agree with what you and Ronan said. Woody Allen is a disguting old pervert. He should be in jail with his buddy Polanski and many other creepy Hollywood perverts. Woody gets away with it because he is a Hollywood liberal Democrat Jew. Just like how Lena Dunham, Terry Richardson all get away with being perverts too.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    There were pornographic pictures found in Woody’s house of Soon Yi or whatever he name was at when she was underage. He did do some pretty perverted stuff with his daughter.

  • BurbankLady

    “Everything” will never die down. There are now over 60 charges of him drugging and raping. That ugliness won’t go away. We live in a different world now, where he’s being held accountable. Maybe not in the court system (yet), but his crimes won’t be forgotten.

  • BurbankLady

    Woody Allen being Jewish has nothing to do with it. I despise Allen and I also despise your ugliness and hatred towards Jewish people.

  • BurbankLady

    Yes, he took nude photos of Soon Yi when she was under age 17 and left them in Mia Farrow’s living room, so she could see them.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    I do not have a hatred of Jews, but it is true he gets away with being a molester because he is Hollywood liberal Jew. What is wrong in saying that? Mel Gibson being a Christian Conservative doesn’t have a career anymore, and what he did pales in comparison to what some of the Jews like Polanski, Allen, Dunham, Richardson have done.

  • BurbankLady

    This is the second time you’ve mentioned that Allen is a “Jew,” claiming that is why he got away with his crime. No excuse for sexual abuse—also, no excuse for YOUR obvious hatred for Jewish people.

  • BurbankLady

    You are no being truthful. Allen is a pervert, but his being Jewish is NOT why he has gotten away with his crime. The legal system failed Dylan Farrow.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    I do not hate Jews for the second time, and there is nothing wrong to point out the hypocrisy of Jewish Hollywood for protecting their own kind of doing terrible acts.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Well, tell that to Jewish Hollywood.They blacklist Christian actors all the time for being drunks, racists and even when they molest children but they do not banish Jewish entertainers and directors for being molesters?
    As Marlon Brando says, Hollywood is run and owned by Jews. How is that racist?

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Are you being sarcastic? That was true.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    Wow, why did my comments about Woody Allen being a Hollywood liberal Jew getting away being a molester were deleted?

    Bravo Ronan!
    The same powerful publicity machines that Ronan Farrow justly calls out, that have made the media complacent towards Woody Allen, were hard at work for Bill Cosby for years.

    I recently came across an earlier product of the publicity mills
    concerning Bill Cosby. In a vintage magazine from 1966, I did a double take on a provocative article with the headline explaining how “I Spy” leading man Bill Cosby lamented “Why Won’t They Let Me Kiss on TV?”
    Perhaps frustrated at not getting enough romantic action as a secret agent on the small screen, the now disgraced comedian took
    matters into his own hands in his private life. Exactly 50 years later that statement laden with irony feels downright creepy as Cosby faces sexual assault accusations from 50 women. The article which also emphasizes his loyalty to Camille, is worth a read. http://envisioningtheamericandream.com/2016/02/03/cosby-kiss-and-tell/

  • Cathy

    I think it’s easy for celebrities to make view they don’t know about Allen’s abuses becouse they are rarely reminded. If this kind of statemants popped up more often than once in 2 years, celebrities would think twise before ruining their image.

  • plez

    There is more evidence that Woody Allen was abusive than Dr Luke. But look how all these celebs rose up to attack Dr Luke and to stand by Kesha.
    Celeb are superficial. They do what is best for them not what might be morally right.

  • Anna

    For a moment there, I thought you were talking about Woody and how you have respect for him until it hit me that you were talking about Farrow. Yes! I completely agree and respect Farrow for coming forward as well. He’s completely right to stick up for his sister that was molested. Shame on Woody and his wife (his other sister), and every actor/actress and Hollywood who jumps at his feet.

  • Anna

    Both. His sister got molest by Woody Allen and his other sister is married to Woody.

  • Penny

    TEAM Ronan. Celebs justify staring in his movies to further their careers by saying Woody Allen never went to jail or was convicted for what he did. Doesn’t make him any less guilty of child abuse. It’s sickening how the justice system failed Mia Farrow. And this is why I never have or will watch a Woody Allen film.

    On a side note Ronan Farrow is the spitting image of Frank Sinatra. Ronan is goooood looking!

    Thank you! I was lost in brother interview.

  • VanityInsecurity

    there are many black artists who think he is innocent.. if there is a blatant disregard for the truth somewhere someone could give him the opportunity. I hope it never happens but honestly Allen married his adopted daughter that he’s raised from a child & ppl still work with him.. if that isn’t really creepy I dunno what is.

  • LaCroix

    are you psychic? only time will tell stop speaking like you know things definitely

  • SW

    But do we really know? Is there any evidence? Molestation is a crime, but so is false accusation.

  • Jessie

    He married his adoptive daughter. I believe if he can start a relationship with someone who is supposed to be his child, and possibly before she was legal, he is capable of molesting another. This allegation isn’t coming out of thin air. It’s consistent with his actions.
