Kate Winslet On Woody Allen: 'On Some Level Woody Is A Woman'

It's also worth noting that while the focus often lands on female actors who work with Allen, male actors like Justin Timberlake and Steve Carell are often spared the same amount of scrutiny.

Allen was never convicted of a crime, and has long denied Dylan's allegations. (She also admits she's still hesitant to speak out herself, because Allen's affiliates tend to direct their attacks at her mother whenever the allegations resurface.) Later, she expresses her appreciation for actors like Jessica Chastain, who have gone on the record to say they would never work with him, and Ellen Page, who have expressed regret for having worked with him. Farrow restated facts about the alleged abuse by her father that she said are public knowledge but that have been silenced by Allen's massive PR machine, which she said deploy money and power "to make the simple complicated, to massage the story".

Farrow notes, "Although the culture seems to be shifting rapidly, my allegation is apparently still just too complicated, too hard, too 'dangerous, ' to use Lively's term, to confront". On social media, the hashtag #MeToo exploded with millions women and men sharing stories of their own experiences with sexual harassment and sexual assault across a wide spectrum of fields.

In the op-ed, Farrow draws parallels between Allen and Weinstein in how they reportedly responded to the allegations. His co-star Kate Winslet decided not to thank Weinstein during her 2009 Oscars speech, explaining to the Los Angles Times in a piece published in October, "If people aren't well-behaved, why would I thank him?" And that's certainly the case with Allen, especially for Dylan Farrow.

"Allen's pattern of inappropriate behavior - putting his thumb in my mouth, climbing into bed with me in his underwear, constant grooming and touching - was witnessed by friends and family members". "I told the truth to the authorities then, and I have been telling it, unaltered, for more than 20 years". She said that Dad said he didn't do anything. "He then sexually assaulted me". "Further, we believe that Dylan's statements on videotape and her statements to us during our evaluation do not refer to actual events that occurred to her on August 4th, 1992", the date Farrow alleged Allen molested her. "At the time of the alleged assault, he was in therapy for his conduct towards me", she writes. During Allen's custody trial with Mia Farrow in 1993, a child psychiatrist, Dr. Stephen Herman, called the Yale-New Haven report "seriously flawed", while a psychiatrist testifying on behalf of Allen, Dr. Anne Meltzer, said the study "reached conclusions that were supported well by the data they collected".

In a 2014 New York Times open letter, for instance, Dylan Farrow wrote publicly for the first time of her allegations against her adopted father Woody Allen, who she says sexually assaulted her when she was 7 years old. The investigators concluded unambiguously that Dylan Farrow was not sexually abused.

Hollywood is in the middle of the movement, and while it continues to topple powerful men, at least one has thus far proved immune: Woody Allen.
