Dylan Farrow, 32, an American actress and daughter of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow. She shared details of her alleged sexual assault by adoptive father Allen in 1992. She spoke with Gayle King of CBS This Morning on Thursday about her allegations.
Farrow told Gayle King that Allen took her to the attic, then allegedly assaulted her while she was playing with her brother’s toy train (upon Allen’s instruction).
Farrow went on to say that Allen was always “following” and “touching” her. He would ask her to get into bed with him when he or she was wearing only underwear. Allen did not act the same way with her sibling Ronan.
The Yale-New Haven Hospital and New York State Child Welfare ruled against sexual assault, while the prosecutor on Allen’s case found probable cause to press charges and ultimately chose not to for Dylan’s mental health.
“I do wish that they had [pressed charges],” Dylan Farrow said. “I was already traumatized…I mean, outside of a court of law, we do know what happened in the attic on that day. I just told you.”
Allen has always denied the allegations since Dylan Farrow came out with the allegations originally and insisted that Dylan was coerced and coached by her mother Mia Farrow during the couple’s divorce.
Allen issued a full statement to CBS saying that Farrow’s accusations were investigated 25 years ago to the fullest, and stuck to his story that “a vulnerable child had been coached to tell the story by her angry mother during a very bad breakup.”
Who Is Dylan Farrow?
Farrow is an advocate for the women’s movement in Hollywood, and over the past several months has spoken up even more about her accusations against Allen and charges not being brought against him. Dylan Farrow is wishing that there was some type of justice served. Allen’s former colleagues have begun to express their regret for working with him and have offered support and sympathy to Dylan.
