Dylan Farrow To Address Woody Allen Allegations In First TV Interview

Dylan Farrow: Why shouldn't I want to bring Woody Allen down ? Farrow 'Outrage' at 'being ignored' over Allen allegation

Following the publication of Farrow's op-ed, a spokesperson for Allen said in a statement, "Dylan Farrow's allegations against Woody Allen, which she first made 25 years ago, have been thoroughly examined by law enforcement officials and child welfare investigators".

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.

The director's adopted daughter appeared on CBS This Morning on Wednesday and said she was "hurt and angry" after "years of being ignored, disbelieved and tossed aside". "I have come forward with evidence and I am credible and I am telling the truth and I think it's important that people realize that one victim, one accuser, matters, and that they are enough to change things".

Rebecca Hall has donated her salary from A Rainy Day in NY to the Time's Up initiative, and her co-star, actor Timothee Chalamet donated his salary to three different charities, saying he does not wish to profit from the film.

The film-maker, 82, faces renewed questions over his alleged behaviour as he prepares for the release of his latest film in a Hollywood that is coming to grips with its history of sexual harassment and abuse.

The CBS interview with Dylan Farrow was filmed at her home in Bridgewater, Connecticut.

Recently, Woody Allen's respected status in the entertainment industry has been questioned as more and more stars distance themselves from his work.

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.

Alec Baldwin, a three-time Allen collaborator, defended the director on Twitter on Tuesday.

"I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the courageous artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve".

In 2014, she had spoken out publicly for the first time about the 1993 allegations in an open letter published in The New York Times. The investigators concluded unambiguously that Dylan Farrow was not sexually abused. The claims were investigated by law enforcement officials at the time, but no charges were pressed.

Ahead of last week's Golden Globes award ceremony, Dylan reiterated her claims in a series of tweets where she labelled Allen a "predator".
