Woody Allen Responds To Dylan Farrow's Open Letter!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooSad SadWoody Allen

woody allen first response to dylan farrow open letter sexual abuse

This is pretty unsatisfactory.

Dylan Farrow, Woody Allen's daughter, penned a very brave, open letter where she says her adopted father sexually abused her.

Obviously this was very moving for some people, but the man it's about is basically left speechless.

His rep released a statement that said:

"Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon."

That's it?! It's been almost a day, so we're wondering why it will be 'very soon.' Why not now?

It's true Woody has never been convicted, or tried for that matter, over this horribleness, but why would someone make up such painful things?!

We hope his actual response has some more guts in it because this is a serious situation!

    "but why would someone make up such painful things"
    I believe her, but she has very clear motivation to lie. It happens all the time.

  2. 2

    Woody Allen "Give me some SLACK; she's not my REAL DAUGHTER!"

    I believe she believes it happened. She was young at the time and people can be brainwashed into believing just about anything. Both Woody and Mia are deranged.

    Her story seems reliable, considering that this guy has done some weird stuff including marrying his way younger stepdaughter, and the fact that he's not immediately denying all of the allegations himself, is worrying. However, people will do anything for money and fame these days. Also, if she really had been abused and she wants him to pay for it, why can't she just report him to the police?

  5. 5

    this creep surely has something to hide - I always thought this and even dislike him more now

  6. 6

    To Irishone- as a clinical psych phd student, you aren't just "brainwashed" into believing something happened to you. Especially not at the age of 7 years old. The conflict between him and his ex wife has died down and now that the young girl is an ADULT she is still telling the same story. The situation is deeply disturbing and for the people that think he is innocent, look at what he has done. He "married", is adopted daughter… and had naked pictures of her, from god knows when. Those actions speak for themselves.

  7. Irishone says – reply to this


    Jessica, she isn't his stepdaughter or daughter. Mia adopted her with another man. Woody had little to do with any of the kids. Not that it makes it any better that he hooked up with his girlfriends daughter. Ick. It was reported to the police 20 some years ago. It was found by a couple different doctors that she was not raped. That doesn't mean he couldn't have touched her. I have my doubts since Mia is not a trustworthy person to begin with. I think they are both nuts.

  8. 8

    How is it unsatisfactory? What would you like him to say?

  9. 9

    I still think she's mistaking Woody for Frank Sinatra's woody. After all, we all know where Ronan came from.

  10. nik says – reply to this


    He's disgusting. #1 because why would someone lie about being abused #2 because by denying it he's trying to keep her captive and a hostage to the abuse. If he's going to fall in love and marry a girl who he was supposed to be a father figure to step father whatever. He crossed the line with soon yi. Kids who have been abused are more likely to cut themselves, be drug or alcohol addicted. If he has caused her any harm he will be judged and suffer terribly for what he has done. Nothing more sick than hurting a young child like that. 20 years she has suffered. Disgusting.

    New York Times, March 26, 1993:

    "Speaking slowly and choosing her words carefully, Mia Farrow testified yesterday that her 7-year-old daughter, Dylan, told her last summer that she had been sexually molested by her adoptive father, Woody Allen. But Ms. Farrow conceded that the girl would not tell a doctor of the abuse, and that a medical examination a few days later showed no sign of it. (…) Investigators at Yale-New Haven Hospital, who were brought into the case by the Connecticut state police, concluded that Dylan had not been molested, sources on both sides of the dispute said."

    Sexual Abuse is an epidemic in this country and it's disgusting that people think a 7 year old would make it up! This pedophile is now married to his adopted daughter! If that doesn't speak volumes to the masses, then we are totally doomed as a society! It won't end because everyone is so apathetic and concerned more about getting the latest IPhone or worrying about the Kardashians. If people read the daughter's open letter and got nothing from it, then there is something terribly wrong, you can feel her anger and she's right, this scumbag raped of her everything and she stayed silent. I'm sure if Mia Farrow tried to prosecute years ago, Woody Scumbag would have put them through intense emotional stress just to deflect from the crime he committed. He doesn't deserve anything except castration.

    Re: MKELLY – The medical exam A FEW DAYS LATER showed no signs…
    This happens often, because they shower or there are no signs DUMBASS, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen.
    Nice to defend a pedophile

  16. ingrid says – reply to this


    Woody Allen is a child skinner..He even molested his son beside the adopted children's. boycott his movies.

  17. 17

    Saying she didn't like it when he put his thumb in her mouth - that made me believe her for sure.

    His two adopted daughters with Soonhi who will be of age soon. Maybe they have some horror experiences of their own. Hopefully not.

  18. 18

    he's a pervert. he is now "married to dylans sister" end of story. morgan freeman, as much as i like his acting is another pervert. he was screwing his wifes grand-daughter.

  19. 19

    It doesn't make any sense, but peoples outrage makes me believe her claims far less. That and Ronan Farrow is a clear jerk off. I'm a liberal, and I fucking hate that that douche is going to try and speak for me…

    Double standard
    Catholic priest who molest children face charges 20, 25 years after the act, they get convicted, and the church pays out millions
    Hollywood Liberal Jews molest children and get awards
    and gold stars on the boulevard

  21. moomyfish says – reply to this


    Re: MKELLY – So your point is? I was molested for 7 years as a child. Had I told someone and been examined there would not have been one bit of evidence from that exam. Molestation doesn't automatically equal rape which would be easily detected in a child. Not being raped can be just as damaging as rape.

  22. 22

    MewLover34- you must have the IQ of a donkey you asshole. JUST BECAUSE YOU DONT LIKE THE GIRLS BROTHER MEANS YOU DONT THINK SHE WAS MOLESTED?!! your a fucking idiot. Hopefully you are never on stand at a trial with someone elses life in your hands. your a danger to society

  23. 23

    I grew up with Dylan and have first hand information that this IS true. It blew up when she was around 7 years old. It was all over the press. Recently, she has come forward, first for Vanity Fair then when he was recognized by Golden Globes, she recounted her story again. Dylan did not make this up. Her story hasn't changed. She was too scared to testify.

    When it blew up and the paps were everywhere, she became a shadow. She didn't talk to anyone. She wouldn't look anyone in the eye. Woody Allen put Dylan Farrow through absolute hell. He is now married to his other daughter, and I pray for the safety of their adopted children. Woody Allen deserves Hell, not Dylan.

  24. 24

    Re: MKELLY – She wasn't raped. She was molested. That means kissing, touching and other acts. It's very hard to tell if a child is molested days afterwards. That's why so many pedos force oral (give or take) or just touching. When a girl isn't a virgin at 7, there's a clear issue. Read the full article from Dylan, not Perez's crap.

    Re: Maggie O – You should rather say that he's atheist and politically liberal.

  26. karla obama says – reply to this


    Atheism is the gateway to several moral deviations since the atheist ceases to have this fear of punishment after his death, he will deny all charges and may even be declared not guilty. All this because nobody can know except the victim and the offender.

    More, that the mere fact of having the financial means to afford the best lawyers, it helps to be innocent!

    Re: nik – The girl is crazy and she is lying. There was an investigation on it at the time and that's what the independent experts mandated by the court said. Don't pretend you know better than them.

  28. Leigh says – reply to this


    Re: moomyfish – That's why there isn't just a physical examination, but a psychiatrical one as well. And that concluded that she was lying under her mother's orders.

  29. Dennis says – reply to this


    Mia is a vindictive biatch who is poisoning that whole family. She needs to get over the fact that Woody chose Soon-yi to marry and not her.
    Hell is a woman scorned.

    Somewhere Previn must be laughing his a s s off for getting away from that crazy witch.

  31. Henning says – reply to this


    If Farrow lied about Ronin being Sinatra's son what else would she lie about?
    False memories can be implanted in children & she was doing her best to influence the kids against Woody. Vile woman.

  32. Oy says – reply to this


    Funny thing is, Sinatra would have had Ronans legs broken for being a little fegele. You think he would have acknowledged that weirdo as his son? Hardly.

  33. Lisa says – reply to this


    Woody and Mia were never married. They lived in different houses. Crazy sitch right from the start. Wonder if Mia has mental problems to keep up such a hate campaign for so many years.

  34. Jade says – reply to this


    Well what did she expect with her unconventional life style?
    She adopted all those kids for her personal gratification and the little Chinese, in the typical tradition of the dragon lady, stole her man and replaced her.
    Old story repeated over and over.

  35. L&L says – reply to this


    Hard to believe a word Mia is saying. Woody and his wife have been married for many years now and it looks like she can't stand it. Woman needs to see a shrink and work through her problems privately.

  36. PussPuss says – reply to this


    Re: Jamie123x – Wrong. Soon Yi hasn't ever been 'his adopted daughter'. She was adopted by Farrow and Andre Previn, and by Farrow's own admission, Soon Yi and Allen never shared a home as a family and had little contact when she was a child. Get your facts straight before judging.

  37. Bette says – reply to this


    Only an unbalanced mind would keep up such a vendetta for so many years. Woody Allen is 78 so all this is water under the bridge.

    So the nerdy little man picked the oriental woman over the blue eyed blonde to marry .That's the real problem isn't it? Mia Farow can't hold on to a man.

    I'm giving my unborn child up for adoption because of some unfortunate circumstances and you're all saying that Mia asked for it having such an "unconventional" lifestyle? What kind of world am I bringing this child into?

  41. Duh says – reply to this


    Re: jill – Don't have kids if you can't take care of them right. It's not rocket science. Mia seems to have been a crazy child hoarder.

  42. Richard P. says – reply to this


    It appears that Mr. Allen had the good sense to marry the woman with the sweeter personality, instead of the shrew. Good for him.

  43. 43

    The scary thing is, he adopted another daughter with Soon.

  44. 44

    You r such a liar Perez. Making it sound you were the first to get Woody Allens statement. I'm disgusted.

    What another sick showbiz asshole. ANYONE who continues to work for,with him outta check out of the human race.

  46. wflowers says – reply to this


    Whether this happened or not (I for one believe Dylan) Woody Allen will be arrested if he steps foot in the State of Israel for what he did to Dylan…..how can anyone dispute that……..by the way, so will Roamn Polanski for the rape of a 13 year old child.

    Re: Jamie123x – You are wrong, there are things called false memories.
    Perhaps take a look at misinformation effect, false memory syndrome and confabulation.

  48. Stacey Rushing says – reply to this


    Give me a break. He married one daughter and molested another. Do people really believe he is not a pedophile. All his children want nothing do do with him and all believe the sister. He is a pedophile.

  49. RR says – reply to this


    Suspicious timing in all this. Mia is po'd that Woody has a three time nomination coming up so she wants to ruin it for him.
    Soony and Allen have had a successful marriage for almost 20 years and it's killing Mia. Psychotic broad.

  50. Shelly says – reply to this


    Now Mia is trying to drag other actors into her sordid spectacle. WTF ? Blanchet and the others should tell her to just eff off. I hope Woody gets the award. Maybe he should also get an award for surviving Mia Farrow. gawd.

  51. 51

    Woody should SUE THE HELL OUT OF MIA AND DYLAN. Anything less, at this point, is an admission of guilt. That crack pot Mia deserves to be bitch-slapped by Woody in court. And Dylan no longer deserves privacy and respect from Woody. He should come out with guns blazing. Enough already.

  52. Sara says – reply to this


    He put his thumb in her mouth? Oh please. That is a famous scene from the movie CAPE FEAR where DeNiro puts his thumb into Juliette Lewis's mouth.
    Mia Farrow is bonkers and hateful.

  53. 53

    Why does he have to respond very soon, why can't he respond now if he were innocent of these accusations? That just makes him look more guilty by waiting. If the guy did this I don't care who he is there will be a special place for him in Hell. He should go to prison if there were anyway possible after all these yrs. After all he did mess around with his adopted daughter when she was under age and ended up marrying her, what does that say for the perverted disgusting p.o.s.? If his piers/ working associates were aware of his transgressions then they are as guilty as him for turning a death ear and blind eye of what he was doing. I have heard Diane Keaton's named and if she was aware of the rumors she should have stepped up to the plate and investigated or said something to the proper authorities to have it looked into. A lot of people do not want to get involved at least that is what Alec Baldwin seems to think he is as guilty as Keaton if they had any indication something was not right, shame on u. Lost respect for these people as actors and will not support their future projects with television, talk shows or movies, etc. Woody Allen's associates think he is a genius when in reality he is a sick person or better known as a perverted sicko.

    Mia is delusional. How can she claim their marriage really never ended when, in fact, Frank Sinatra DIVORCED her. And if Ronan is Frank's son she cheated on Woody with the remarried Sinatra. Ick.

    "Unsatisfactory"? Here's something that's unsatisfactory—a real basis people have that assumes "Mia good, Woody bad." What about Soon-Yi? Huh? Did she marry a man who had been molesting HER? Woody Allen had access to Soon-Yi from an early age. Wouldn't a pedophile have also raped or molested her? She agreed to marry this man and has stayed married to him. Pedophiles tend to rape over and over again. Allen has two daughters by Soon-Yi who are old enough to speak their minds. You don't see THEM writing any open letters. Meanwhile, Mia Farrow was cheating on Allen while in a sexual relationship with him. She was having sex with the husband she divorced—Frank Sinatra. How "normal" is THAT? Does she get a free pass and keep all her credibility after concealing from Allen that Ronan could have been fathered by Sinatra. I see a clear bias here: Mia good, Woody bad. I'm not so sure that's how it really is.

    Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society engages in a witch hunt. Most of us remember the hysteria in the McMartin preschool case and others. ALL of them turned out to be false accusations which existed solely in the minds of the accusers and their easily coached children. Salem, here we go again.

    Re: Bette – would your molestation be water under the bridge? seriously it isn't about him it is about her and what she went through. we don't know what is true but the letter in the paper did describe some things that are so very common in child molestation. the getting into bed with only underwear or naked, laying in the lap, fingers in the mouth…..
    if it happened… to say it is water under the bridge is completely heartless

    "but why would someone make up such painful things", they are called sociopaths Perez… Confused and messed up by the spotlight.

  75. 75

    Both the maids have confessed to being pressured by Mia Farrow to agree with her accusations, but later retracted them stating that Dylan Farrow never left her site for MORE THAN 5 MIN. Which would be too little time for Woody to do anything.

    Woody is a claustrophobic. Why in the world would he choose to sexually abuse his 7 year old daughter in the attic on the day that he was finalizing an agreement with Mia Farrow over the custody of their children?

    The nanny herself can recall Mia video taping her daughters 'confession' who didnt seem at all upset about anything.

    Her own son has been estranged with Mia under terms of calling the household as brainwashing and has actually been in contact with Woody and his wife and are on good terms.

    Stop accusing without knowing all the facts.

  76. Asyoulikeit says – reply to this


    Please do not distort facts to suit your agenda. The fact is that Allen passed a lie detector test decades ago (and yes, they can be faked but it's rare). Allen and Mia were never married. Allen and Mia never lived together. Allen and Mia were never common-law partners. Allen never adopted Soon-Yi. Soon-Yi was of legal age when she began dating Allen and subsequently married him. Every time WA's image or name appears in print or on TV, the movies, etc., Mia Farrow goes wild and Tweets hate. She gets her son Ronan to follow suit, and it looks like she may have done the same with Dylan. Before you distort facts, learn the real ones.

    The creepiest thing about this story is how quick people are to convict a man with no evidence against him. Just a claim. An accusation. Did we learn nothing from Salem? Convicting women of witchcraft crimes without ever so much as seeing evidence of actual magic? Thats the creepiest aspect of society. They become so desperate to believe something that they reject all other possibilities.

    Re: Maggie O – thats the only double standard you can come up with? How about the double standard where when a grown middle age woman school teacher sleeps with a 13 year old boy that boy is said, by society, to have "gotten lucky" and that woman is treated not like a pedophile but a hero of sorts (it seems to be taboo to call a white female a pedophile) while older white men get called pervs for dating 26 year old women. Thats a far more disturbing double standard to me.

    I would tend to believe Dylan Farrow. Because he chose to have sex with his adopted daughter Soon Yi and then married her, it wouldn't surprise me to hear that he molested another adopted daughter, or that he also molested his son Ronan. The rich can get away with anything in this world and that's just very wrong. I hope Dylan has received therapy for the abuse. The whole thing is so sad.
