Dylan Farrow Accuses Woody Allen of Abuse in TV Interview

Dylan Farrow broke down in tears as, for the first time on camera, she described Woody Allen’s alleged molestation of her when she was 7.

For the first time on television, Dylan Farrow accused her father, Woody Allen, of molesting her as a child, telling “CBS This Morning”: “I want to show my face and tell my story.”

Dylan sat down with CBS’s Gayle King and claimed her adoptive father, Allen, took her to the attic of their home in 1992 and “touched my private parts.” She says that’s how she described it as a child, but today, as a 32-year-old woman, she says “he touched my labia and my vulva.”

“Why shouldn’t I want to bring him down?” Ms. Farrow, 32, told Gayle King during a conversation that aired on Wednesday and Thursday. “Why shouldn’t I be angry? Why shouldn’t I be hurt? Why shouldn’t I feel some sort of outrage that after all these years, being ignored and disbelieved and tossed aside?”

Dylan started crying when Gayle played a clip of Allen on “60 Minutes” denying the molestation.

For the record, Allen was investigated twice, criminally, but never charged.
