An old sexual abuse allegation against Woody Allen resurfaces and Hollywood celebs react! Blue Jasmine is Woody Allen's latest flick which has garnered 3 Academy Award nominations. But it's his estranged daughter Dylan Farrow that everyone is talking about. Allen has one of the most sordid reputations in Hollywood. His 12 year relationship with Mia Farrow ended when she discovered nude pics he'd taken of her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn, who was 19 at the time. THEY'VE been together ever since, But Woody's other adopted daughter- Dylan Farrow accused him of sexual assault around the same time that this scandal happened. Dylan for the first time ever has decided to speak up about the sexual abuse she claims to have suffered at the hands of her father. Her NY Times letter starts like this: What's your favorite Woody Allen movie? Before you answer, you should know: when I was seven years old, Woody Allen took me by the hand and led me into a dim, closet-like attic on the second floor of our house. He told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother's electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me. He talked to me while he did it, whispering that I was a good girl, that this was our secret, promising that we'd go to Paris and I'd be a star in his movies." And she ends the letter by saying: "Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse. So imagine your seven-year-old daughter being led into an attic by Woody Allen. Imagine she spends a lifetime stricken with nausea at the mention of his name. Imagine a world that celebrates her tormenter. Are you imagining that? Now, what's your favorite Woody Allen movie?" Very serious and compelling letter. Woody responded through his attorney who said: "Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon." Until then, Hollywood is responding for him. Lena Dunham called the letter "courageous, powerful, and generous" in a tweet. Ronan Farrow, Woody's biological son tweeted his support for his sister saying "I love my sister...Her words speak for themselves." Ronan made headlines when he tweeted this during the GG: Missed the Woody Allen tribute- did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?" Alec Baldwin was called out in the letter and he has lashed out on twitter regarding it. And Cate Blanchett who was also called out in the letter says she hopes the family finds peace and a resolution. As Hollywood becomes increasingly polarized I urge you to tweet me or write your thoughts below.
