Woody Allen Denies Allegations in New Interview & Says Actors Who Won't Work With Him Again Are 'Foolish'

Woody Allen is speaking out against actors who have announced they will not work with him again.

The 85-year-old director spoke out in an interview for CBS Sunday Morning, Variety reported.

In the interview, he spoke of actors who either spoke out against the director or renounced their work with him following renewed interest in the sexual abuse allegations against him from ex Mia Farrow and daughter Dylan Farrow in HBO docu-series Allen v. Farrow.

“I think they’re well-meaning but they’re foolish. All they’re doing is they’re persecuting a perfectly innocent person and they’re enabling this lie,” Woody said in the interview, recorded last year after the release of his memoir.

He again repeated his denial that he had sexually molested his then-7-year-old daughter in 1992, calling the allegations “preposterous.”

“It’s so preposterous and yet the smear has remained. And they still prefer to cling to, if not the notion that I molested Dylan, than the possibility that I molested her. Nothing that I ever did with Dylan in my life could be misconstrued as that.”

Here are some of the biggest revelations from the docu-series. Here’s what Woody Allen said about the docu-series.

Woody Allen & Soon-Yi Previn Slam HBO's Docu-Series 'Allen v Farrow'

Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn are reacting to HBO’s Allen v Farrow docu-series.

A spokesperson for the 85-year-old filmmaker and his 50-year-old wife released a statement slamming the new docu-series after the premiere aired on Sunday (February 21), in which his ex Mia Farrow spoke out about their relationship and her daughter Dylan Farrow shared allegations of sexual abuse against Woody.

“These documentarians had no interest in the truth,” Woody and Soon-Yi‘s spokesperson shared in a statement to Deadline. “Instead, they spent years surreptitiously collaborating with the Farrows and their enablers to put together a hatchet job riddled with falsehoods. Woody and Soon-Yi were approached less than two months ago and given only a matter of days ‘to respond.’ Of course, they declined to do so.”

“As has been known for decades, these allegations are categorically false,” the statement continued. “Multiple agencies investigated them at the time and found that, whatever Dylan Farrow may have been led to believe, absolutely no abuse had ever taken place. It is sadly unsurprising that the network to air this is HBO – which has a standing production deal and business relationship with Ronan Farrow. While this shoddy hit piece may gain attention, it does not change the facts.”

Woody has adamantly denied allegations that he sexually abused Dylan, which were first revealed in 1992 after he split from Mia. He was never charged, but a Connecticut prosecutor did say there was probable cause for a criminal case.

And I have to take responsibility for the fact that I worked with them both. I can’t turn back the clock. I’m grappling with those regrets but what do we have if we aren’t able to just be f–king truthful about all of it?”

Kate says she’s speaking out now because “life is fucking short and I’d like to do my best when it comes to setting a decent example to younger women.”
