Dylan Farrow 'outraged' sex abuse claims were 'ignored for years'

Dylan Farrow 'outraged' sex abuse claims were 'ignored for years'

Allen, who has never been charged with a crime, penned a letter to the New York Times in 2014 accusing Dylan's adoptive mother, actress Mia Farrow, of "exploiting" her daughter.

When asked by CBS presenter Gayle King why should people believe her after all these years, Farrow said that was "on them".

Timothée Chalamet has announced that he will be donating whatever money he makes from appearing in Woody Allen's upcoming film A Rainy Day in NY.

Farrow said it's appropriate to be outraged about years of being "ignored and disbelieved, and tossed aside".

To this Dylan responded, "Why shouldn't I want to bring him down?"

It was a devastating expose of alleged rape, assault and harassment published by Farrow's brother, Ronan, the biological son of Allen and Mia Farrow, in The New Yorker last October that helped end Weinstein's career.

Baldwin's tweets came after actor Timothee Chalamet, the breakout star of Call Me by Your Name, announced on Instagram that he was donating his salary from his role in Allen's most recent film, A Rainy Day in NY, to charities that fight sexual abuse and harassment.

Brosnahan joins a growing chorus of Allen collaborators who have sought to distance themselves from him in the wake of the #MeToo movement, including two who are now contending for Oscars for other film work: Lady Bird writer/director Greta Gerwig said that she wishes she had not worked with Allen, and Call Me By Your Name lead actor Timothee Chalamet said that he would be donating his full salary for his work in Allen's upcoming film A Rainy Day in NY to three charities: Time's Up, the LGBT Center in NY and RAINN, an anti-sexual violence organization.

Farrow, now 32, has reignited her claims in light of the wave of sexual misconduct allegations in Hollywood.

The breakout star of Call Me By Your Name announced yesterday on Instagram that he didn't want to profit from his work on Allen's A Rainy Day in NY, which wrapped shooting in the fall.

Since then, a growing number of actresses, including Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall, Ellen Page and Mira Sorvino, have announced they regret working with Allen.

There are many who stand by him, with actor Alec Baldwin declaring the backlash "unfair and sad".

This marks Farrow's first television interview to discuss the allegations against Allen. The investigators concluded unambiguously that Dylan Farrow was not sexually abused. Justin Timberlake and Kate Winslet starred in his 2017 film Wonder Wheel and Dylan Farrow has criticised the two for speaking in favour of the #metoo movement and Time's Up, but not against Allen.
