Woody Allen to Respond to Dylan Farrow

Posted by Robin Paulson Categories: Movies, Rumors,

Woody AllenDespite his reclusive tendencies, filmmaker Woody Allen will be emerging from his proverbial shell to respond to the renewed child molestation accusations against him.

Allen is seeking to have a piece published in response to his estranged daughter Dylan Farrow's open letter wherein she claims that he molested her as a child - confirming her mother Mia Farrow's claims that Allen did so when Dylan was 7 years old.

The Blue Jasmine director's letter is rumored to appear in The New York Times - the same publication that put out Dylan's letter last Saturday. "[Allen] asked and we said, 'Yes, send it in,'" said Andrew Rosenthal, The New York Times' editorial page editor. Just because it has been submitted, however, Rosenthal points out that it won't necessarily go unedited or published at all: "It comes down to the editing process [as a full Op-Ed piece]... Normally, we don't publish a direct response. In this case, it was so personal, we thought that we should."

Allen has up until this point seems to be speaking through his lawyer Alkan Abramowitz, who released a statement following the release of Dylan's letter stating, "It is tragic that after 20 years a story engineered by a vengeful lover resurfaces. The one to blame for Dylan's distress is neither Dylan nor Woody Allen."
