Dylan Farrow Criticizes Hollywood, Media for Ignoring Woody Allen Claims

Dylan Farrow Asks: Why Has Woody Allen Been Spared By #MeToo?

She added that Woody Allen's latest feature film, Wonder Wheel, was released theatrically on December 1.

But her defense of the controversial director has earned her critics - including Allen's own daughter Dylan Farrow, who alleged in 2014 that he sexually assaulted her starting when she was 7 years old.

"It is a testament to Allen's public relations team and his lawyers that few know these simple facts", she says. In response to questions regarding her working with Allen despite the allegations, Winslet said in an interview with The New York Times, "I didn't know Woody and I don't know anything about that family". And that's certainly the case with Allen, especially for Dylan Farrow. And then, she points to the heart of the problem that remains within this swift sea change, even as Weinstein and others fall down around Allen: "It is also our collective choice to see simple situations as complicated and obvious conclusions as a matter of "who can say"?"

Farrow calls out actresses who have collaborated with her father in the past - including Kate Winslet, Blake Lively and Greta Gerwig - and applauded women for speaking out against sexual misconduct, while declining to comment on allegations facing Allen. However, she ended the op-ed with a call to break the code of silence around her allegations-a code that, she wrote, is maintained because of Allen's Hollywood clout. "I had an extraordinary working experience with both of those men, and that's the truth".

Winslet is receiving criticism for starring in Allen's new film "Wonder Wheel". Blake Lively made similar statements previous year after working with the director on Café Society. On working with Allen, Lively said, "It's very unsafe to factor in things you don't know anything about". "I knew I needed a tremendous actress to play [Ginny]". In a November interview with Terry Gross on NPR's Fresh Air, Gerwig said in response to a question about Allen: "I think I'm living in that space of fear of being anxious about how I talk about it and what I say. And I was in that film with Ellen Page, who wrote something very lovely recently and very strong and thoughtful recently".

"Of course I did not molest Dylan", he wrote in 2014. In November, Ellen Page wrote an essay stating that working with Allen on "To Rome With Love" was the "biggest regret" of her career. She also says that Allen put his thumb in her mouth, climbed into her bed in his underwear, and constantly touched her. In one of the most heartbreaking conversations I have ever had, she sat me down and asked me if I was telling the truth.

Allen was never convicted of a crime, and has long denied Dylan's allegations. Several people provided testimonies in court that matched Farrow's claims of a specific incident, Vanity Fair reports, including a babysitter who, according to Farrow, allegedly "saw Allen with his head buried" in her lap when she was not wearing underwear. She claimed that after her brother Ronan wrote about how the firm "jumps into action whenever allegations resurface" in the Hollywood Reporter, the publication was barred from covering Allen's feature at the Cannes Film Festival.

The column ends with a call to reevaluate the larger "system" that worked for figures like Weinstein for years.
