Diane Keaton Speaks Out About Her Friend Woody Allen! Doesn’t Believe Dylan Farrow’s Claims!

diane keaton stands by woody allen in dylan farrow sex abuse allegations

She finally says something!

After Woody Allen’s daughter Dylan Farrow wrote a piece for the New York Times about the sexual abuse she suffered at Woody’s hands, people began speaking out.

But Woody's friend Diane Keaton had yet to weigh in.

In the NYT piece, Dylan wrote:

"You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?"

Well, in a new interview with The Guardian, Keaton says that in fact she’d only seen Dylan three times, and said she believes Woody’s side of things! She explains:

"Oh, well, yes. I love him.”

You didn't hesitate to say that publicly?

"No. No. No." She says this sweetly. "He's the strongest person I've met in my life," she adds. "He's made of steel. And talk about a work ethic – he's one of the people that really did teach me that you have to work hard. But he wanted to. He's the most disciplined person I've known, with the exception of my dad. But his discipline is a constant, whereas when my dad retired, I think he lost sight of what he was doing. This guy? He's going to be practising that clarinet and touring with his band and making his one movie a year until they push him – he's never going to stop. Who in the history of movies has done that? He's 78, he makes a movie a year and he has total control. How is that possible?"

She smiles, as well she might. If Keaton is good at anything, it's this kind of circumlocutory verbiage.

Did she resent being dragged into Dylan Farrow's [New York Times] editorial?

"No. What are they going to do? Who else are they going to drag in? They have to drag someone in. I don't resent it, not for a second."

But the criticism Farrow aimed at her didn't sting?

"Not really. That I didn't know her? I saw her maybe three times. I didn't know her. It's not a bad accusation. I was never friends with Mia – I was friendly. Sort of like I'm friendly with you. I like you, I like the way you are. I like the way she is, too. She's very charming. But I never knew her as a friend. A friend – that's a commitment. It's as close as you can get to family, and sometimes it's even closer. Friendship requires a lot of time. I don't have a lot of friends; I have acquaintances and people I think are charming, and I like to see them. I like to see Sarah Jessica Parker, I like to see Meryl Streep. I don't know them – I mean, I made a movie with them, once, and that's nice – but I know nothing about their lives."

There's something frantic and off-topic about this. I say: Dylan Farrow's accusation is that you publicly defended someone who molested her.

Keaton's broad smile fixes. "I have nothing to say about that. Except: I believe my friend."

So, basically she thinks that Dylan is making all of this up.

It seems like the world may never know for sure what happened in that attic.

Thoughts???

    Perez is a sociopathic narcissistic liar and loser. No Spirit. Nothing to offer humanity.

    He' knows it too. Dark.

    Feel sorry for him :-)

    As a working actress, it pays to be on Woody's side…it's the right investment, when you look at it from a business point of view.
    Otherwise, nothing she says really proves/disproves anything to do with the allegations…he's a hard worker…so what? I'm pretty sure you can be a hard worker and a sexual creep at the same time.

    And, if you're smart, you're not exactly going to disclose being a sexual creep to your friends.

    Diane Keaton is being evasive and weird. It doesn't help her creditability that she can't go without wearing white gloves. Woody has gotten away with far too much.

    Re: Cristina – I don't think she ever said she has proof that proves Woody didn't do it. She's saying she knows one side of the story, and that story makes sense to her and she believes it.

    If someone comes out publicly saying someone you know and love did something heinous, would you instantly believe them without any real proof?

    We all know nothing about this situation. All the items released to the public is not entirely factual and most people have read whatever snippets were taken from rag media sources. We know nothing. We are just making assumptions based on our views of a man that we know nothing about. We are biased, people generally are, it's natural. We take a look at this man who we assume married his daughter (he was not her adoptive father). Yes do we get the heebie jeebies when an older man dates a much younger woman? Of course, but it's not a crime. They've been married for a long long time.

    And so, as someone who knows nothing about the case I cannot say one way or the other. And I agree with Keaton, he is her long time friend, she trusts him. And with no real proof, she's going to continue believing him. Which is what most people would do.

    Diane Keaton is about as pertinent as Jennifer Aniston, squeezing a life-time career out of one flash-in-the-pan character from years ago. With Diane, it's the weird quirky wardrobe and with Jennifer it's the hair and 'Rachel' personality. Jennifer is primed to become the new Diane; Hollywood spinster.

    Re: Rodan – I totally agree with you. She is very weird, and very evasive when answering these questions. Woody is also strange.
