Dylan Farrow Slams Cate Blanchett, Blake Lively For Silence On Woody Allen

Dylan Farrow Slams Cate Blanchett, Blake Lively For Silence On Woody Allen

Allen famously married his adopted daughter, Soon Yi, and was accused of sexual abuse by another adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. "Not just because he was a great thinker, because I have been known to have some reasonably profound insights myself, although mine invariably revolve around two eighteen-year-old cocktail waitresses and some rope handcuffs", reads the notes in a draft of short story "My Apology", according to Morgan.

The 32-year-old said that she stood in solidarity with the women attending the Golden Globes and making a stand against gender parity by dressing in all black, but added that the people of Hollywood need to remember that they have a real opportunity to make this moment count.

She finished her strong statement in the Twitter thread saying she has "optimism" and "hope" about the recent movement at the Golden Globes "with the firm belief that there is a brighter future ahead".

'Woody Allen is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse.

Farrow has long alleged that Allen molested her as a child, and yet that has never stopped Allen from attracting the best actors in Hollywood from working with him.

Globes watchers lambasted the singer for his "performative" wearing of the Time's Up pin, and called him out for wearing it while still promoting his work with Allen.

What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Emma Stone hasn't spoken about her work with Allen, but declares "time's up" for, I suppose, other men. Or you, Scarlett Johansson?' The letter said. It's very unsafe to factor in things you don't know anything about. Have you forgotten me?

'So imagine your seven-year-old daughter being led into an attic by Woody Allen. "I struggle to understand how a woman who believes Woody Allen is "empowering to women" can claim the role as an advocate for women suffering from sexual harassment", she told Buzzfeed about Lively. Am I a woman who matters too?' Dylan replied. Lively has been speaking out against sexual harassment for months, but when The Hollywood Reporter asked her about Farrow's allegation against Allen, she had this to say: "It's unbelievable what Woody has written for women".
