But the sheer vividness with which Farrow recounts the experience, as well as the forum in which she does so, is enough to make even the most ardent fan reevaluate an artist's entire body of work, especially one as personal as Allen's. That's the first time that phenomenon ever occurred in my life. You know she's going to give all those details out, all my little idiosyncrasies and my quirks and mannerisms.
That idea: that sexual exploitation and education are conjoined also runs through the Allen canon. Separating the quality of the art from the life of the artist is necessary for anyone who wants to enjoy anything. “I was taken to a small attic crawl space in my mother’s country house in Connecticut by my father.He instructed me to lay down on my stomach and play with my brother’s toy train,” she told King on the morning show. You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Woody Allen has released a statement following his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow’s interview with Gayle King on Thursday’s “CBS This Morning.” Farrow spoke out in graphic detail about a sexual assault she said she suffered at the hands of Allen when she was 7 years old.She starred in 13 of his films and he was believed to be the father of her son Satchel (shown here as an infant) as well as the acting father of her other children, including adopted daughter Dylan shown here being held by Allen. Mia Farrow and then-teen daughter Malone Farrow arrive at the opening night of "Gypsy" on Broadway at The Shubert Theatre in 2003 in New York.Malone previously went by the name "Dylan" and has accused Woody Allen of assaulting her when she was 7 years old, a claim Allen has denied.“Dylan’s older brother Moses has said that he witnessed their mother …relentlessly coaching Dylan, trying to drum into her that her father was a dangerous sexual predator,” Allen said in a statement provided to The Wrap. Only in Allen's case, Hollywood isn't the bringer of false light, but a willing accomplice to darkness. If you want a happy ending you should go see a Hollywood movie.
