Reportedly, French comedian Laurent Lafitte, who served as the event's master of ceremonies, shocked the audience by calling out the controversial director before the premiere of Allen's new film Cafe Society.
As Woody Allen is in Cannes promoting his new film Cafe Society, his estranged son Ronan Farrow is promoting his new essay on the alleged abuse the Oscar-winner inflicted upon his sister, Dylan Farrow.
The Hollywood Reporter published the piece penned by the 28-year-old on Wednesday, where he criticizes the media's coverage of Dylan's powerful open letter written to her dad in 2014.
In case you don't remember, the 30-year-old recounted just how Woody sexually assaulted her when she was seven.
Well in his new essay, Ronan admits not wanting her piece to come out, confessing:
"I had worked hard to distance myself from my painfully public family history and wanted my work to stand on its own. So I had avoided commenting on my sister's allegations for years and, when cornered, cultivated distance, limiting my response to the occasional line on Twitter. My sister's decision to step forward came shortly after I began work on a book and a television series. It was the last association I wanted. Initially, I begged my sister not to go public again and to avoid speaking to reporters about it. I'm ashamed of that, too."
But he continued:
"I told her she walked like a relief pitcher coming in from the bullpen. I was expecting this beautiful creature to emerge and walk on. She suddenly looks like a guy coming out of a bullpen to walk out to the mound."

Does Woody Allen not have publicist?
Over the years, Woody has publicly spoken out on his controversial relationship with his former step-daughter and current wife of twenty years Soon-Yi Previn. The two originally met while Woody was married to Soon-Yi's adoptive mom, Mia Farrow.
Not only has Allen described himself as a "paternal" figure to Previn in the past (he is 35 years older), but he has also expressed no remorse over causing Mia and Soon-Yi's siblings considerable pain at the time of the scandal. The bizarre interviews about their relationship comes on the heels of renewed allegations that the director molested his daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was just a young child.
Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter over just how little he cared about the emotional fallout, W.A. expressed:
"I was immune, yes I was. You can see I worked right through that, undiminished. Made films all through those years and at the same rate I was making them. I'm good that way. I am very disciplined and very monomaniacal and compartmentalized."
Well, we're glad you could get over the life-altering scandal so easily, Woody!
As for how Allen views his marriage to Soon-Yi, he offered up a very inneresting perspective:
Another year, another star-studded Woody Allen movie!
The legendary filmmaker has released plenty of romantic period pieces over the years, but for every brilliant film like Midnight In Paris there's a Magic In The Moonlight that just didn't have the magic audiences were hoping for.
But in his newest film Café Society, the Annie Hall writer is back to a lighter comedy taking on the golden age of Hollywood — and he brought an all star cast along for the ride!
Set in the late 1930s, a young man from the Bronx (Jesse Eisenberg) travels to Hollywood to stay with his big wig uncle (Steve Carell), and falls in love with a young woman (Kristen Stewart) in hopes of wooing her with his charming neuroticism, love of jazz, and New York swag.
But KStew ain't the only pretty lady in town — Eisenberg soon meets bombshells played by Blake Lively and Anna Camp. And you better believe they ALL want a piece!
Ch-ch-check out the trailer for Café Society (above) and catch the film in theaters August 16!
Ten years ago, Miley Cyrus burst onto the scene playing the titular character in the colossal hit show Hannah Montana!
We all know Miley went through quite the metamorphosis since the show went off the air in 2011 — and has admitted that playing the teen pop star gave her body image issues.
But that doesn't mean the real life pop star still can't appreciate the Disney Channel show that made her a household name!
In honor of the show's tenth anniversary, the Wrecking Ball singer shared a photo of herself on Instagram donning a blonde wig VERY similar to HM's!
Even though her new wig is actually for her role in Woody Allen's upcoming Amazon series, Miley thought it was the perfect opportunity to send some love to the cast and crew of her old show! She wrote in the caption:
Heyyyy, did you get a new haircut??
Miley Cyrus has been rocking the short blond hair for years, only recently growing it out a touch — though keeping it in tight, often covered pigtails.
Obviously the long hair is much more fitting for the 1960s setting of the show.
As for the hippie attire, obviously that's not a stretch for the Wrecking Ball singer — who ate a vegan wrap for real when filming broke for lunch — though the poncho is rather a lot of clothes…
Still almost no details on the still untitled six-episode series, but we're told Miley did spend much of the day sitting by a homemade sundial.
