Dylan Farrow Criticizes Hollywood, Media for Ignoring Woody Allen Claims

Dylan Farrow Criticizes Hollywood, Media for Ignoring Woody Allen Claims”

"It is a testament to Allen's public relations team and his lawyers that few know these simple facts", she says. "From allegations against studio heads and journalists to hotel maids recounting abuses on the job, women are exposing the truth and men are losing their jobs", Farrow wrote in the L.A. Times. "But the revolution has been selective".

She added that Woody Allen's latest feature film, Wonder Wheel, was released theatrically on December 1.

Farrow, whose brother Ronan investigated and reported on Weinstein's history of alleged sexual misconduct for The New Yorker, says that when she was 7, Allen led her to an attic where he sexually assaulted her. "Although the culture seems to be shifting rapidly, my allegation is apparently still just too complicated, too hard, too 'dangerous, ' to use Lively's term, to confront", Farrow wrote.

The op-ed seems to have been inspired by the rise of the #MeToo movement, in which a social sea change has allowed victims to come forward about the behavior of some of the most powerful men in show business, but also by comments from some actresses who have worked with Allen and equivocate when asked about his behavior. That's a luxury that sexual assault survivors often don't have. No other allegations of sexual misconduct have been brought against Allen, though the director was criticized for making what some perceived as a sympathetic statement about Weinstein. It's also worth noting that while the focus often lands on female actors who work with Allen, male actors like Justin Timberlake and Steve Carell are often spared the same amount of scrutiny.

"Of course I did not molest Dylan", he wrote in 2014. Farrow questions why prominent industry figures - such as disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, Amazon Studios exec Roy Price, Kevin Spacey and others - have been "cast out by Hollywood" as a result of women and men coming forward with harassment accusations, while Allen still has a multimillion-dollar distribution deal with Amazon. She also included statements from Blake Lively, another actress in Wonder Wheel, and Greta Gerwig, who has called Allen her "idol".

The New York Times asked Winslet about the allegations in September, and whether they had given her pause. "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". I remember them. She was distraught when I told her. She said that Dad said he didn't do anything.

Farrow maintains that Allen sexually assaulted her when she was seven. She also said that comments from her brother Moses that Mia Farrow manipulated her daughter into testifying about Allen's actions are "devastating, but like so numerous attacks on my story, irrelevant: Moses was not there for the alleged assault".

In the op-ed, Farrow draws parallels between Allen and Weinstein in how they reportedly responded to the allegations. "Enough people have been hurt".

In an op-ed for The Los Angeles Times, Woody Allen's adopted daughter Dylan Farrow calls out Hollywood for ignoring allegations of sexual assault she's made against him for years. The investigators concluded unambiguously that Dylan Farrow was not sexually abused.
