Dylan Farrow gives an emotional interview to "CBS This Morning."



Here's the transcript. Here's Woody Allen's response.

It's an old story made new by the "Time's Up" movement in Hollywood and Farrow's going on camera (asking us to see and believe).
KING: Are you angry with the people, with the celebrities that are starring in his movies, that hold him in high regard and continue to compliment him?

FARROW: I'm not angry with them. I hope that, you know, especially since so many of them have been vocal advocates of this Me Too and Time's Up movement that, um, they can acknowledge their complicity and maybe hold themselves accountable to how they have perpetuated this culture of – of silence in their industry.

I wonder if he's made his last film.

So in the middle of a custody battle, Woody took his (adopted) 7 y/o daughter to the attic, touched her blahblah and then left.

Yeah...... Right.

But I'm sure she believes it. Which is why we have investigations and trials and not Guilt by accusation.

And I think Woody Allen is a liberal "prevert"

From Wikipedia on A Rainy Day in New York:

"In October 2017, Griffin Newman announced via Twitter, he had regretted working on the film, and would not work with Allen again in the future. Newman donated his salary to RAINN. In January 2018, Rebecca Hall announced via Instagram, she had regretted working on the film, and would not work with Allen again in the future. She donated her salary to Time's Up. That same month, Timothée Chalamet announced via his Instagram, still under contractual obligations, that he didn't want to profit from the film, donating his salary to Time's Up, RAINN, and the LGBT Center of New York. Selena Gomez later reportedly made a donation exceeding her salary from the film, to Time's Up.

Please, Ann.

Woody's been making the same 4 films for the last 35 years. God, I hope he's made his last film.

Etienne said...

Replace "Me Too and Time's Up movement" with "Communist movement".

rcocean said...

"Please, Ann."

I assume you and Althouse know what this "Secret message" means.

I just hope its not S&M - for Meade's sake.

I don't know about Woody Allen, but as for the rest of them, of course.
They all knew, and were complicit. I don't think any of this that came out in the last few months was not common knowledge.

I think it was Instapundit who said that the actual scandal was that the public was told.

And this goes for Congress too. All those gentlemen (and ladies) declaiming about ethics, weeping and feeling ill.

As for the woman-thing - note that a fair number of the revelations were homosexual.
That's a bit difficult to fit into a women-as-victims story.

Hari said...

Unlike virtually all the other #MeToo claims, this one was actually heard by a judge and not found not to be credible.

Emotional interview is not good click bait for guys.

Bay Area Guy said...

If you're a 50 year old man, and you're dating a 40-year old women with 6 adopted kids, and then you have kids with her (1 natural, 2 adopted), but don't marry her, and then dump said woman, and then marry one of her 6 adopted kids -- well, I'd say there are "boundary" issues in your life.

Doesn't mean he diddled Dylan, but weirdness certainly abounds in the Farrow-Allen household.

Yeah, that's the way I see it.

Tom Petty died due to mixed drug intoxication, including fentanyl, oxycodone, temazepam, alprazolam, citalopram, acetylfentanyl and despropionyl fentanyl.

"Wait a minute... you said fentanyl three times!"

"I like fentanyl!"

"Charming... sign here."

Apologies to Blazing Saddles fans...

Quite right!

Families with pervasive boundary issues become very perverse, in my experience.

Transgender predators, yes. There were also female predators.

#MeToo is politically congruent. Not to mention there is #SheKnew #SheProgressed, and other accessory variants.

Too bad Charlie Rose couldn’t do the interview

The Infamous Monty Python Spam Skit!
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=


Scene: A cafe. One table is occupied by a group of Vikings wearing horned helmets. Whenever the word "spam" is repeated, they begin singing and/or chanting. A man and his wife enter. The man is played by Eric Idle, the wife is played by Graham Chapman (in drag), and the waitress is played by Terry Jones, also in drag.


Man: You sit here, dear.
Wife: All right.
Man: Morning!
Waitress: Morning!
Man: Well, what've you got?
Waitress: Well, there's egg and bacon; egg sausage and bacon; egg and spam; egg bacon and spam; egg bacon sausage and spam; spam bacon sausage and spam; spam egg spam spam bacon and spam; spam sausage spam spam bacon spam tomato and spam;
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...
Waitress: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...
Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!
Waitress: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.
Wife: Have you got anything without spam?
Waitress: Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it.
Wife: I don't want ANY spam!
Man: Why can't she have egg bacon spam and sausage?
Wife: THAT'S got spam in it!
Man: Hasn't got as much spam in it as spam egg sausage and spam, has it?
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam... (Crescendo through next few lines...)
Wife: Could you do the egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam then?
Waitress: Urgghh!
Wife: What do you mean 'Urgghh'? I don't like spam!
Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up!
Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up! (Vikings stop) Bloody Vikings! You can't have egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam.
Wife: I don't like spam!
Man: Sshh, dear, don't cause a fuss. I'll have your spam. I love it. I'm having spam spam spam spam spam spam spam beaked beans spam spam spam and spam!
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Waitress: Shut up!! Baked beans are off.
Man: Well could I have her spam instead of the baked beans then?
Waitress: You mean spam spam spam spam spam spam... (but it is too late and the Vikings drown her words)
Vikings: (Singing elaborately...) Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam! Spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam spa-a-a-a-a-am spam. Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam! Spam spam spam spam!

Bad Lt.

What's going on with you?

William said...

In a courtroom, I might give him a pass. Reasonable doubt and all that, but he's probably guilty.....So he made his last film. He's in his eighties and has had a life full of honors and rewards. It's good that he lived long enough to see his legacy curdle, but he pretty much got away with it. There's not much justice in the world.......His defense was that there are appropriate and inappropriate times to molest your daughter, and that he would never molest his daughter at an inappropriate time. Very shrewd. Kind of plausible if you don't think about it too much.......Woody has said some wise and witty things. It's kind of hard to reconcile his behavior with his wisdom, but there you are. He's a wise and humane scumbag.

Lem said...

"You empower other people to seem to be speaking for you when they go about saying things that are not precisely what you want to say."

Oops.

What Bay Area Guy said.

FullMoon said...

Scorned woman syndrome:

"The woman - astronaut Lisa Nowak - had just driven 14 hours from Houston, later telling police she wore an adult diaper so she didn't heave to stop to use the bathroom, to attack Shipman.

Shipman was dating Nowak's ex, astronaut William 'Bill' Oefelein. And Nowak wanted her out of the picture.

'I know in my heart she wanted me dead,' Shipman told People.

Nowak pepper sprayed Shipman who was able to drive away, but it would later come to light Nowak brought a host of items that seemed indicative or kidnapping and murder.

A BB gun, a four-inch knife and a steel mallet lead to the astronaut being charged with attempted kidnapping and attempted murder, which were later reduced to burglary and misdemeanor battery.

Nowak was married to Richard Nowak, with whom she had three children. Lisa Nowak and Oefelein had an affair for two years, which he ended when he became interested in Shipman in 2006.

There was no overlap between Oefelein's relationship with Nowak and Shipman, which is why the couple said they never perceived her as a threat."

Francisco D said...

Bad Lt.,

You did not offend me at all.

Your post seemed strange, but maybe I am a few drinks behind.

An autopsy report says retired star pitcher Roy Halladay had evidence of amphetamine, morphine and an insomnia drug in his system when he died.

Idiot.

I hope they sue his estate for all the costs associated with cleaning-up his crash, and the money spent on wages.

Bad Lieutenant said...

Come on Etienne lighten up! Surely it's enough that his body be burned for electricity.

Amadeus 48 said...

I always thought Mia was a little unbalanced after seeing her give birth to Satan's spawn in Rosemary's Baby. Frank, Andre, and Woody should have steered clear after that.

That iaMay is one azycray adylay.

dustbunny said...

I believe Moses

Earnest Prole said...

Allegations of child molestation during a bitter divorce require corroborating evidence. There is none, therefore Woody Allen is an innocent man.

Yancey Ward said...

Watching that I have a hard time deciding whether it is better for Farrow that her accusations are true, or whether it is better for her that they are false.

Ryan said...

She seems credible and thruthful to me, a skeptical 43 year old male fan of Woody Allen.

Amexpat said...

"So in the middle of a custody battle, Woody took his (adopted) 7 y/o daughter to the attic, touched her blahblah and then left."

That's a weak defense. Sexual acts of these nature are often a compulsion. Gene Wilder, in "Everything you Wanted to Know about Sex...", didn't choose when and where he first became attracted to sheep. He acted upon the impulse when it came and an opportunity presented itself.

In his defense, WA alludes to the added risk of acting upon his desire when there was more jeopardy in doing so. But that can add to the sexual desire. WA, in one of his early films (can't remember which), had a girlfriend that only could have sex in public places, because the sense of jeopardy added to the sexual excitement.

That's not to say I believe with certainty that he did it. Its' just that I don't believe conclusively that he didn't do it.

I do believe that Dylan Farrow believes he did it. But I'm not sure if that's conclusive proof because the memories of young children are not always accurate.

Amadeus 48 said...

My friend has a visual memory of seeing chickens with snake heads at about the same age.

There aren't any chickens with snake heads.

atchWay the othermay. Dylan certainly believes this happened, but others have looked into it and disagreed.

Kevin said...

Apologies to Blazing Saddles fans...

You have to appreciate that movie as one that could never be made today.

Curious George said...

Sorry Dylan, #IngaKnew does believe your story, and doesn't care if its true.

What? Woody Allen? Oh, I thought you said Bill Clinton raped you. OK, well I guess it depends if she likes Woody Allen movies. We'll have to wait and see. Hang in there meantime.

William Chadwick said...

So "Dylan" is now a female first name?

John Lynch said...

WA married his stepdaughter. Before defending him take this into account.
