Mia Farrow On Daughter's Sex Abuse Claims Against Woody Allen: 'It's Not About Me, It's About Her Truth'

Posted: Updated:

Mia Farrow is speaking out after her ex partner Woody Allen's lawyer claimed that allegations of childhood sexual abuse made by their adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, was simply an idea that was "implanted in her by her mother."

On Tuesday (Feb. 4), Mia took to Twitter to deny allegations of brainwashing or that she had used Dylan as a "pawn" in a fight between herself and Allen:

Mia also tweeted a link to Maureen Orth's 1992 Vanity Fair article that detailed the allegations of abuse when they were first made, as well as a link to Orth's follow-up article written this past year. "Just read this for the first time since 1992. #longread," she tweeted.

Mia's son Ronan Farrow also expressed support for Dylan after she penned her open letter in the New York Times, tweeting: "I love and support my sister and I think her words speak for themselves."

Allen was never charged with a crime and continues to deny any wrongdoing, but with the issue back in the headlines, many of Allen's past interviews and comments are resurfacing, and they aren't doing him any favors.

In particular, a 1976 profile of Allen in People magazine has resurfaced, in which the director admits:

"I try to have sex only with women I like a lot," Woody explains solemnly. "Otherwise I find it fairly mechanical." (He has little interest in family life: "It's no accomplishment to have or raise kids. Any fool can do it.")
He goes on: "I'm open-minded about sex. I'm not above reproach; if anything, I'm below reproach. I mean, if I was caught in a love nest with 15 12-year-old girls tomorrow, people would think, yeah, I always knew that about him." Allen pauses. "Nothing I could come up with would surprise anyone," he ventures helplessly. "I admit to it all."
