Woody Allen's daughter to address abuse claims

Woody Allen’s adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow has given her first TV interview over claims she was sexually abused by her father.

The long-form interview will be aired on CBS’ This Morning on Thursday, as several stars begin distancing themselves from the acclaimed director.

Dylan Farrow accused Allen of sexually assaulting her when she was seven years old, a claim the director has rejected.

Dylan is Mia Farrow’s adoptive daughter, who Allen cared for during the course of this 13-year relationship with the actress.

“I am credible, and I am telling the truth, and I think it’s important that people realise that one victim, one accuser, matters,” Dylan is heard saying in a short clip published by CBS.

“And that they are enough to change things.”

Timothee Chalamet, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, Rebecca Hall and Mira Sorvino are some of the stars who have apologised for having worked with Allen.

Chalamet and Hall have donated all earnings made in Allen’s productions to charities for victims of sexual abuse.

On Tuesday, actor Alec Baldwin positioned himself on the other side of the debate, criticising those who are now disavowing the director.

“Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states and no charges were filed,” Baldwin wrote on Twitter.

“Is it possible to support survivors of paedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent? I think so.”

Standing with Dylan Farrow are her mother Mia and brother Ronan, the reporter whose expose on Harvey Weinstein sparked the mogul’s downfall.

Dylan’s other brother Moses has backed Allen, saying Dylan’s allegations are likely to be intended to “please her mother”.

“Of course Woody did not molest my sister,” he told People magazine in 2014.

“She never hid from him until our mother succeeded in creating the atmosphere of fear and hate towards him.”

Allen claims Mia Farrow never forgave him for marrying her adoptive daughter Soon-Yi when she was 27 years old.
