Diane Keaton has Woody Allen’s back. The legendary actress took to Twitter on Monday to say that she doesn’t believe his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow’s claim that Allen abused her when she was a child.
Back in 1992, Diane and the filmmaker in a joint interview discussed the allegations against him and said Mia Farrow was not honest about what had happened.
Keaton said “Woody Allen is my friend,” and she “continues to believe him,” despite Dylan’s molestation claims. On Twitter, Keaton said that those who are curious should look at her 60 Minutes interview from 1992 to “see what you think.”
Ever since the charges first came out, Allen has vehemently denied them, especially now in the wake of the Time’s Up and the #MeToo movements in Hollywood.
Despite his defense, other stars including Kate Winslet, Colin Firth, and Greta Gerwig have expressed regret for working with him.
Back in 2014, Dylan published a letter in The New York Times where she singled out Allen. Additionally, she singled out women such as Keaton who continue to work with him.
Dylan said, “what if it had been you?” to the various women who have collaborated with Allen including Diane Keaton, Scarlett Johansson, and Emma Stone.
In an interview with The Guardian, Keaton said being centered out like that didn’t really bother her because she was never friends with Mia and has only met Dylan “maybe three times.”
She said, “I don’t resent it, not for a second.” Keaton said she “had nothing to say about that,” and continues to believe her friend. The 32-year-old, Farrow, has not spoken on Keaton’s rebuttal yet, but we’re sure she will.
