Dylan Farrow Describes being Sexually Molested as a Child by Woody Allen
 
The rumors about Woody Allen have always been out there. If this is true, I hope he burns in hell.

This is very difficult to read.

Dylan Farrow Describes being Sexually Molested as a Child by Woody Allen
 
Hmm he married his adopted step daughter... I don't think it's much of a stretch that he molested his other adopted daughter.

He married his girlfriend's step daughter. Not his own.


I'm not sure if the molestation really happened, but this would definitely be tough to make up. Awful.

Why would you doubt her?

Well there's obviously been a lot of talk about this over the years. Dr's didn't find evidence of molestation, the allegations came during a time when they were in a huge custody battle (odd timing), etc.

I'm not trying to blame the witness or anything though. Like I said, this letter is pretty damning.

I've listened to YEARS of testimony on matters of this nature. I've read court transcripts of this for years as well. There doesn't have to be penetration for molestation to happen. Stuff like this happens for years and many times is never reported because someone is afraid they will rock a boat or a child is told to keep it a secret, etc.

When a child goes through something like this, it messes them up for years or life. The recovery can be next to impossible depending on the age of the child at the time it happened.

Regarding Allen and his stellar record over the years, I wouldn't doubt her off the bat

There's no reason or benefit to her for lying about this now.

While this video is obviously a media outlet "review" and rather old, the idea of the suggestibility of children is not a new one, and could lead to a lifetime of misconstrued stories, as I'm sure you know. I'm not saying that Farrow is making it up at all, because children get molested, it's not a fairy-tale or a case of misunderstanding the majority of the time. However, they should always be questioned and investigated to the proper extent. Could Allen have done all these claims? Absolutely, but just accepting it at face value is unwise.


Not really speaking against you, just adding an aspect to the conversation.

Innocent until proven guilty, I mean I know she might be right, but you can't damn a guy because one person says something. If he did do it, I hope it gets brought to light, but he and God know the truth, we don't we can only choose sides at this point

Don't forget she wasn't the last child he went after

I was thinking that she was his wife's adopted daughter. Either way, I'm not seeing much of a difference lol

I understand what you are saying, but that type of "You believe in Santa Claus, don't you?" stuff is not allowed by the judge in the most courtrooms. Very few times are the victims put on the stand for reasons of this nature.

Has he been arrested or charged with a crime? Until then, there is no innocent until proven guilty stuff.

I have a good teacher friend who had a female student accuse him of something proposterous. It was really bad. I never doubted him because of his character. The matter was cleared up quickly and favorably to him, which was the truth. Woody Allen has no such stellar character. That is why they allow character witnesses in the courtroom.

I asked about why doubt her...sounds more like you are doubting him.

Did anybody else think of Match Point? SPOILER ALERT (white text)- Ironically, the protaganist in that movie gets away with murder and has to live with the guilt. And yes, it is my favorite Woody Allen movie.

Her brother has responded. He is a therapist. He says it never happened. That his sister loved spending time with Woody Allen until his mother concocted the story. He also says Mia Farrow was the abusive parent.
