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."

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:
