Woody Allen wishes to be removed from this narrative.
As you know, the director's estranged son Ronan Farrow released a poignant essay back in May on the alleged sexual abuse the Oscar-winner inflicted upon his sister, Dylan Farrow. Allen responded shortly after by saying he has "so moved on" and he "never thinks about it." Hmm.
In a new interview with The Guardian, the 80-year-old reiterated the point that he doesn't want to be bothered with the allegations that have been following him for years.

Dismissing the abuse claims as "tabloid stupidity," the annoyed Café Society narrator — who was described by the interviewer as "weary, sad, flat" — said:
"I have no interest in all of that. I find that all tabloid stupidity. That situation had been thoroughly, thoroughly investigated up and down the line by New York social services in a 14-month investigation. It had been investigated by Yale and conclusions were clear and I have no interest in that whole situation. I get harassed all the time on it. But it doesn't affect me and I just have no interest in it."
Note: This is the first time Woody has ever used the word "harassed" when talking about the accusations. Inneresting.
But regardless, it's hard to know what to think especially when there's a possible victim of sexual abuse involved.
What do U make of Woody's attitude toward the allegations, Perezcious readers??? SOUND OFF in the comments!
