Woody Allen’s adopted daughter, Dylan, is finally speaking out about claims that the legendary director molested her. This marks the first time she has publicly spoken out about the incident. Dylan still stands by her claims and her mom, Mia Farrow, believes her. Check out the link for a full transcript.
It was the scandal that had everyone in Hollywood talking. In 1992, Mia Farrow left Woody, her partner of 12 years, and accused the director of molesting their adopted daughter.

While Allen was never convicted of the crime, he did lose custody of his children. The judge claimed that there was insufficient evidence to prosecute Allen.
Woody, by this time, had already moved on. He was in a relationship with Soon-Yi, Mia Farrow’s adopted child, who he helped raise. At the time, she was 19 and Woody was 56. This would later become his biggest scandal.
Of course, that was before Dylan began speaking out about the relationship. In next month’s Vanity Fair, you can read her entire sit-down interview, where she revealed:
“There’s a lot I don’t remember, but what happened in the attic I remember. I remember what I was wearing and what I wasn’t wearing...The things making me uncomfortable were making me think I was a bad kid, because I didn’t want to do what my elder told me to do… I was cracking. I had to say something. I was 7. I was doing it because I was scared. I wanted it to stop. I thought that was how fathers treated their daughters. This was normal interaction, and I was not normal for feeling uncomfortable about it.”
You can check out the full transcript over at Vanity Fair.
