Woody Allen Speaks Out
New York Times, by Woody Allen

Original Article

Posted By:Harleynyc, 2/7/2014 9:59:47 PM

TWENTY-ONE years ago, when I first heard Mia Farrow had accused me of child molestation, I found the idea so ludicrous I didn’t give it a second thought. We were involved in a terribly acrimonious breakup, with great enmity between us and a custody battle slowly gathering energy. The self-serving transparency of her malevolence seemed so obvious I didn’t even hire a lawyer to defend myself. It was my show business attorney who told me she was bringing the accusation to the police and I would need a criminal lawyer. I naïvely thought the accusation would be dismissed out of hand because of course, I hadn’t molested Dylan

Comments:
Well written, easy to understand. If you still believe Mia, you dead wrong.

I think the perversion is widespread and there is more than enough to go around. A pox on all of them. They live in a world I don´t want to know anything about. Go away.

I guess I´m not sure who I believe in this whole family drama/crime, but one thing that I am sure about is the liberal double standard has been outed. I thought the liberal mantra on sex abuse was one of believing the victim not matter what. Guess it depends on what Oscar winning Hollywood bigwig´s ox is being gored, doesn´t it?
That´s what bugs me the most, the double standard they are allowed to have on everything.

There is also a link at the end to the judge´s decision (all 33 pages in pdf) at the end of this article.

It is OP who needs to rethink their position. Unless they are closely connected to Woody?

Give it up for Rand Paul demanding that Democrats give back money raised for them by pervs like Bill clinton and Woody.

Why anyone today would pay to watch one of his movies´ is a mystery to me.

As I said in an earlier post, both Allen and Farrow are freaks who should never have been around children, period. At this point I don´t think there´s enough evidence to say Allen did anything to Dylan Farrow. And given Mia Farrow´s psychotic behavior, the classic "poisoning of children against the ex" ploy is at least as strong a possibility as the alleged assault.

This is what Hollywood royalty is made of, and they have far too much power in the world.

Maureen Orth´s undeniable facts helped me make up my mind. Mia might have been a scorned lover, but bizarre/inappropriate behavior towards Dylan on Allen´s part was documented and seen by others.

It is SO New York Times to print this rumpled, crumpled, moldy story. And for what? You´d think Woody Allen was the first man to be accused of something nefarious.

While most of Woody Allen´s work, in my opinion, borders on genius, his preoccupation with death and sex always gave me a twinge of discomfort -- about him.

In short, get over it, Woody. You, too, Mia. Nobody cares except your Dullywood groupies.

This is all about a woman scorned. And if Dylan has moved on and is now happy, why was it necessary for Mia to drag them through this again? I´m not an Allen fan but I don´t think he did this.

If you believe Mia? I thought Dylan was the accuser. And if Mia is just a "woman scorned," why didn´t she reacted similarly when her second husband, Andre Previn, cheated on her? Or when Frank Sinatra served her with divorce papers on the set of Rosemary´s Baby?

As someone who has been through a divorce, I always like to point out that there are two sides to every story of a breakup. While I am no fan of Allen´s, I was glad to finally hear his side of their very public story, because Farrow´s always did smell like a pile of dog feces.

Mia did not go to law enforcement. She had to take Dylan to the doctor and the doctor determined there had been abuse. The doctor was required by law to report abuse to law enforcement.

He can´t get through the first paragraph without a big lie.

Do read the article linked at #6 and the judge´s scathing decision in Woody´s suit for custody (skim if you must). It is damning. The judge minced no words.

Except that Woody Allen is a liar and a pervert. Read the judge´s evaluation of him (link at #6). It is pretty well-written and easy to understand.

All of the discerning posters who freely opine that there is nothing to this story should take the time to read Orth´s article, at the link given by an earlier poster. Then follow the link at the bottom to the actual ruling of the judge who heard all the evidence given and made an OFFICIAL ruling on the case. Personally, I given his understanding of both accusations and denials more credence than any of the opinions I´m reading elsewhere.

As for the "Who Cares?" contingency? Let me tell you why you need to pay attention, why you should care...about the topic, if not the specific individuals involved in this incident. I have 6 grandchildren--3 biological, 3 adopted. The 3 adopted kids were molested in their bio-mom´s home. It started with the little girl, about the time she was 2-3. She then started molesting her baby brother, still in diapers and unable to talk. She eventually graduated to my 2 biological grandsons. They are all now in their teens, and the nuclear fallout from that childhood tragedy still continues to affect the whole family.

We were very careful to protect our kids from adult predators. What we didn´t know is that we also needed to protect them from other children whose parents DIDN´T protect them from adult predators...who are much more common than most people think, and found in some very unlikely places. You´d jolly well BETTER care, and pay close attention to everyone who wants to interact with your kids. In this case, an ounce of prevention is worth a TON of cure!

Posters who believe Mia brought this up are information-challenged.

Dylan is now a grown woman. Her open letter was her response to Woody Allen´s award and accolades at a recent awards ceremony, and the gushing of Cate Blanchett and Diane Keaton, to name just a few. It was too much for Dylan.

It´s amazing that we are constantly being told and it is considered an established fact that child molestors/pedophiles are that way for life. They can never be cured, hence castrate them, lock them up and throw away the key. Here we have a man who has no history of molestation or pedophilia in his life, yet because of who he is, there is a rush to judgment. I don´t care for Woody Allen´s politics, but that´s it.

For the "who care´s" crowd, I think that this is important. Not because of who they are, but because of the substance of the issue. It takes so very little for a certain segment to get out their long knives.

Bottom line: there is no evidence. If there was, Woody Allen would have at least been brought up on charges. He also would have done it again and again and again - right?

I agree with number 9 - if you aren´t interested in an article, then don´t comment. There are plenty of us that are concerned about child abuse. Yes, this is rehashing an old story but this story is back in the news.

I don´t care for Woody Allen and haven´t seen any of his movies since these allegations were reported in the news.

If there was no evidence, why did the judge hearing the custody case deny Woody not only custody but visitation? With no evidence, Woody surely would have won an appeal. There was evidence, just not enough to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.

"Well written easy to understand?" Wait a minute isn´t this the guy who married the adopted daughter of his wife? Hmmmm, I guess he would not make a very good character witness for someone being tried for child molesting now would he... The man is a pervert. His movies traffic in sexual immorality.

1) Interview with Woody Allen in People Magazine in the 70s when he was 41. From the interview:

[[ 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."]]

Can any of you imagine your father, or husband, or boyfriend/partner, at the age of 41, saying these things?

A few more thoughts:

2) Soon-Yi was a very young child when Woody Allen began his relationship with Mia Farrow. He took nude photographs of Soon-Yi while she was a teenager (the ones we know about). His intimate relationship with his long-time partner´s young daughter began when he was still with Farrow. This creepy saga alone should set off GIANT alarm bells.

3) Mia Farrow has never accused her other partners of abuse, even when they left her for other women. Frank Sinatra felt protective of her his whole life.

4) I think ANY mother would understandably be angry and repulsed that her partner of many years would take nude photographs and have a sexual relationship, then MARRY, her daughter whom Woody Allen knew from when she was very young. That is sick, I don´t care who you are.

5) Dylan was adopted by Farrow and Allen. Read the court documents and see if you still believe Allen is innocent in any way. There were witnesses to his strange behaviour.

6) Woody Allen was ordered by the court to not be allowed to around Dylan again. He lost all rights.

A babysitter walked in on Allen with his head on Dylan´s lap in a strange pose (sexual). She reported it, this is what got everything started. It´s all in the court documents. The prosecutor´s statements, then and now, support Mia and Dylan´s side. He said he had probable cause, read his statements.

Molesters usually get away with it because they know how to manipulate and frighten young children over whom they have authority, they know to molest in secret and they know to intimidate their victims into silence. And the family and friends and actresses who have been paid a lot of money to work for the molester do not want to admit they have supported a monster because that would reflect on their own characters. That is basically it in a nutshell...

I hope those who are bitter from getting divorced from women who manipulated them, do not side with a monster without looking into the evidence.

If #31 and any others who are outraged at what they characterize as "the long knives" will use their fingers and keyboard to find the judge´s decision (33 pages in pdf and scathing) in 1997 as to why Woody Allen was not to have custody of his adopted children and why any visitation was limited, or not at all, but in any case never unsupervised.

The case was not pursued by the prosecutor because of his beiief that Dylan was too young (7 years old) and "fragile" (his word) to go through a lengthy court trial, testifying to what he had done.

Don´t know whether your daughter (if you have one) could have testified at 7 to being taken to an attic, told to lie on the floor on her stomach and play with a toy train, and sodomized by her "father".

Before throwing stones go an locate the basis for our defense of and belief in Dylan´s account. The truth.

Mia Farrow did not go to the police. But she had to take Dylan to the doctor (think about it) and the doctor was required by law to report abuse to law enforcement.

Oh wow. I just read #31. Stunning ignorance.

No evidence?

#31 hasn´t read the court documents, am I right? I don´t think 300 words are enough to detail all the evidence....court documents, the judge and prosecutor´s scathing reports, the witnesses who observed Allen´s "grossly inappropriate" behavior towards Dylan, the babysitter catching Allen with his head in Dylan´s lap in a sexual pose (horrific details on this incident). Much more in the court documents....Allen taking nude photographs of his long-time partner´s daughter as a teen whom he knew since she was a very young child (Soon Yi) WHILE still with Mia, THEN marrying her. Yuck. The quotes he´s given in interviews about how he admitted no one would be surprised if they heard he was having orgies with 12-year-olds (this says it all).

No evidence? Whoah.....the question should be, How much evidence do you need?

No evidence sure seems to be really hard to accept by "true believers", so go for the ad hominem. And yeah, I read the judge´s opinions. Did you also get upset when the McMartins, Amiraults, Michaels, etc... were released/found not guilty? This is a case of no evidence. It doesn´t even come close to the standard that a civilized society uses to find guilt. Emotion over facts - sheesh. What a way to live.

No one addresses the fact that there remains no other instances for the alleged pedophilia.

Also, judge Wilk is quite an interesting guy - kept a picture of Che Guevara in his office and had quite a thing for anyone he viewed as elite.

#43, multiple witnesses giving testimony does not count as evidence? The babysitter who sounded the alarm to the rest of the staff? She saw it. Dylan´s testimony is also evidence. She was 7. Mia didn´t want to believe her at first. She hoped it wasn´t true. Court records. Far from "coaching" her. Ridiculous. Allen´s own words that he would participate in orgies with 12-year-olds? Allen admitting that he secretly took nude photographs of the young daughter of his still current long-time partner, and then conveniently "falling in love" and marrying the daughter, whom he first met when she was ten? Allen hiring his own lie-dectector guy but refusing to take the police test? The court documents report that the Yale team that "exonerated" Allen were "colored by loyalty to Allen", were not experts in child sexual abuse cases and conveniently "destroyed all notes and paperwork". Custody of all minor children were given to Farrow. Allen´s rights were taken away because of "grossly inappropriate behaviour". The statements of the prosecutor "I had probable cause" to charge Allen. He didn´t want to put Dylan through a trial, and Farrow agreed. The courts made sure Allen could never come near her or the other children again.

I submit to you that you have not read the court documents. If you have, then you have very serious problems to so smugly 100% dismiss the allegations and call the victim a liar.

Regarding the liberal judge, everybody in this case are flaming liberals. That does not mean Dylan was not molested by Woody Allen. Her testimony is credible. Everything about how this has played out over the years leans in her favor, the pattern. Molesters only target vulnerable, powerless persons they can intimidate. This is why molesters are so rarely caught. There are other witnesses; there are Allen´s own perverted words and behaviour.

Wake up. Did you support Sandusky too? Sandusky targeted only the fatherless, vulnerable boys in his "charity" and his adopted son. He never tried to molest the strong, protected (involved parents) players on the teams he coached. He knew better. An assistant finally caught him; Sandusky was a powerful man and the assistant knew that. So he went to the very top, to the King of Penn State, to Joe "Pa" because he of all people could stop this monster. Guess what? The king did nothing. No one went to rescue the boy that the assistant saw getting raped.

This is an evil world because of people who allow the monsters a wide, comfortable berth. Cowards.

When I watched "When Harry Met Sally", I thought I was observing a couple of neurotics. Fortunately there were no children.

The story line of "When Woody Met Mia" concerns the tale of two psychotics.
UNfortunately there are a slew of children.

As sequestration bore down in February 2013, the threat of furloughs for thousands of government workers was a common refrain from those warning of the dire effects of the across the board budget cuts. Janet Napolitano, then-head of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), told Rep. Bennie Thompson in a letter that sequestration could force her department to idle law enforcement personnel for up to 14 days. As it turned out, DHS did not furlough any personnel, but rather relied on cuts to other areas and shifting funds from other budgets to cover salaries. For instance, Customs and Border Protection

WASHINGTON — There will be no trademark for “Redskins Hog Rinds,” a bad omen for the Washington Redskins in the legal battle over their name. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has rejected a request from a company to sell pork rinds using the word “Redskins” because it deemed the term to be “derogatory slang.” In a letter dated Dec. 29, the agency wrote: “Registration is refused because the applied-for mark REDSKINS HOG RINDS consists of or includes matter which may disparage or bring into contempt or disrepute persons, institutions, beliefs, or national symbols.”

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power did not attend an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting Wednesday, Fox News reported. The meeting was scheduled to discuss an alleged chemical weapons attack on Wednesday. Power’s decision not to attend drew criticism due to her past statements on Syria. Power criticized the U.N. Security Council’s lack of action in Syria during her confirmation hearing. She also discussed the country in a Twitter town hall she hosted last week. A U.S. mission official told Fox News that Power was on a “pre-arranged trip” and

Hundreds of people from across North America are expected to flood Saylorsburg on Saturday to protest a controversial Turkish figure, Fethullah Gülen, who has lived in the area for more than a decade. A Turkish couple in Florida said they began circulating a flier on social media two weeks ago, encouraging people to come to the Poconos to protest a man they say is a danger to the U.S. and their home country. The protest is set for 1 p.m. by Gülen´s home and retreat center on Mount Eaton Road.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer. Robinson is famously known as the first openly gay Episcopal bishop. Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
