Allen increasingly isolated as molestation claims resurface

LOS ANGELES | Woody Allen's adopted daughter gave a tearful television interview on Thursday, giving details of an alleged molestation by the filmmaker more than 25 years ago. Dylan's older brother Moses has said he witnessed their mother relentlessly coaching her, trying to drum into her that her father was a unsafe sexual predator.

But Dylan Farrow's story is many years old. In recent weeks, Rebecca Hall ("A Rainy Day in New York", "Vicky Cristina Barcelona"), Mira Sorvino ("Mighty Aphrodite"), Ellen Page ("To Rome With Love"), David Krumholtz ("Wonder Wheel") and Griffith Newman ("A Rainy Day in New York") have all in some way distanced themselves from Allen or vowed that they wouldn't work with him again. "Every step of the way, my mother has told me to tell the truth".

The disgraced director issued a statement after Farrow revived the detailed claims that he had sexually assaulted her as a seven-year-old girl, at her mother's CT home in 1992, in her first full television interview. Dylan Farrow became visibly emotional.

Farrow says her father took her to a small attic crawl space, instructed her to lay down on her stomach and play with her brother's toy train, while he sat behind in the doorway and touched her private parts.

Griffin Newman: Newman tweeted in October that although he only has one scene in Allen's film, "A Rainy Day in NY", he "deeply" regrets having worked with the director and donated his salary from the project to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network, or RAINN. I can not begin to imagine how you have felt, all these years as you watched someone you called out as having hurt you as a child, a vulnerable little girl in his care, be lauded again and again, including by me and countless others in Hollywood who praised him and ignored you.

However, despite their excellent run they still stand in the shadow of what could be a historic campaign for Guardiola's side. One of their biggest obstacles to doing so comes on Sunday, as they travel to Anfield to take on Liverpool .

This week, Timothée Chalamet joined a growing list of actors who said they wouldn't work with Allen in the future.

But Farrow's most damning assertion-one that everyone should hear and think very hard about-comes when King asks about Allen's "defense" against her accusations. As a "mother and a woman", she wrote that the story of Farrow broke "her heart".

The letter was a big deal back in 2014, when letting survivors push back and go public about incidents of alleged abuse was not commonplace. He released a statement via Instagram sharing that although he can't speak about the film due to contractual obligations, he was inspired by the #MeToo movement to take a stand. She said she was donating her salary from the film to Time's Up, the recently formed initiative to combat gender inequality in the entertainment industry.

Timothee Chalamet, her co-star, said the same.
