Lena Dunham Speaks Out In Defense Of Woody Allen's WORK! See Her Reasoning Behind The Support HERE!

Lena Dunham was one of the first celebs to publicly speak out in defense of Dylan Farrow after her powerful open letter full of abuse allegations against Woody Allen

And while the Girls star is still in full support of Miz Farrow's brave moment, she IS also defending the director/writer's work!

Wait…WHAT??

In a new interview, Lena is revealing her frustrations with people that are trying to find references of child molestation in Woody's old movie scripts, narratives, etc—convinced it will lead them to clues of his troubled past and present!

Infuriated, she confesses:

“For me, when people go through his work and comb through it for references to child molestation, that’s not the f–king point. I’m not gonna indict the work. I think that you can decide that you don’t want to support the work of somebody who has molested a child. That’s a completely appropriate choice. But going through it and saying, ‘Look, he’s told us in 57 ways that he rapes kids’ — that’s not the thing.”

She went on to say that someone's art shouldn't be used to pin crimes on them in real life:

“The thing is to look at the actual evidence that exists in the world, which I think strongly suggests that Woody Allen is in the wrong. But for me the point is not to go through his one-act plays looking for references to child molestation. Because I’m not comfortable living in a world where art is part of how we convict people of crimes.”

Up to speed? No? How about this:

If Hannah Horvath tried to explain what Lena was currently feeling, it would probably sound like, "I know he's like the great and powerful Oz with a dark past in terms of writers and all, but like, if anyone read my stuff and decided to Nancy Drew the sh*t out of my life, then they would think I'm a total weirdo too. It's like, not worth analyzing because it's a fictional narrative, you know? So judge me for me, and judge him for him—but don't go page by page like some twisted Hardy Boys mystery novel!"

Understand her frustration??

Cool.

Miz Dunham still thinks Woody is wrong– she's just separating the art from the man.

    I see what she is saying, but it is very difficult to keep the art and the man separate. It is the same with MJ - everyone knows he was very talented, but I can't listen to his music anymore - the sound of his voice sickens me.

    i see what she is saying and might support it, but what the HELL is this terribly written post? was that your artistic capabilities, speaking in Hannah Horvath's voice? because it made me uncomfortable and embarrassed for you.

    HILTER was an amazing artist. He could paint a German Shepard like nobody's business. Much respect to Adolf the artist… not Adolf the dude responsible for the deaths of 6million people.

    really though, i am glad for someone in the spotlight that will finally say what everyone else in the country is thinking. instead of kissing the asses of the rich and famous in order to look good or get ahead, she says what she thinks and so far it's been the truth. good for lena. woody is a pedo and hilter would have loved woody's work

    When your only talent is to be similar to the majority of those ugly and overweight women, you should keep your mouth shut and look up for a reality check!
