Mugato: Moses? Really?Woody's a creepy bastard and all but like three of his movies suck but I give someone the benefit of the doubt when they're accused of what he's accused of.The only unforgivable thing he's guilty in my mind is Annie Hall beating Star Wars for best picture.
IamKaiserSoze!!!: Mia's never been the same since she got debil raped in the 60s.Family never had a chance after that.
brandied: Good grief, why would anyone want to get naked with Woody Allen? Am I the only person in the world who thinks he looks like an ugly evil jewish dwarf?And he is just not funny.
Kyosuke: DrBenway: I get that Dylan is his big sister and it's good of him to support her. He grew up around her and with Mia as his mother, but beyond that, why does his opinion count for much regarding all of this?He has a new TV show to promote.
DamnYankees: James!: But he is a convicted child molester. If someone's claiming to have been molested you might look to the guy who actually was convicted of it rather than the guy mom's already mad at.Yeah, to be honest when I read this it struck me a incredibly bizarre. What are the odds that this woman's brother is a child molester, and she just so happens to have had a long term relationship with another man she's accusing of child molestation? Isn't that unlikely?
Cletus C.: The Woody defender brigade needs to sit down with Dylan and tell her she was not molested. She clearly thinks she was but if provided a link to that old white-knighting article and having access to your gut feelings, she may decide he didn't actually do what she says he did.Also, he's not going to diddle you, no matter how much you defend him. You're way too old.
Dont Call Me Shirley: He was pretty good in "Ants" so he's got that.
lawboy87: OK, so to get this straight: About six or so months after Woody and Soon Yi hook up and he and Mia are splitsville, she invites him and Soon Yi to come to her Connecticut country estate to spend the weekend to supposedly do a little "family bonding/repair." Mia never wanted for money and she is/was independently wealthy long before she met Woody.During this weekend family retreat (from what I can gather from reading the differing accounts), there were 5 adults present and 3 children. Adults: Mia, Woody, Soon Yi, Monica Thompson (nanny to Farrow/Allen for 7 years, but who wasn't present on the day Mia made the initial allegation), and Kristie Groteke (nanny who said that Dylan was never out of her sight for more than 5 minutes.) The three children were Moses (14), Dylan (7) and Ronan/Satchel (4).Of all the people present that day, it appears that only Mia Farrow, Dylan and Ronan believe the allegations or continue to make them.Monica Thompson gave sworn testimony that she believed the entire thing was a "set up" orchestrated by Farrow who had been coaxing her for weeks beforehand to not allow Allen to be alone with Dylan and had conveniently gone "shopping" for a few hours on the day that things went down, all as part of making it look spontaneous. Groteke has been quoted as feeling used and felt like Farrow was pressuring her to lie on her behalf and against Allen.So basically, there's not a single adult present during that weekend who believes the accusation to be true and now we find out that the 14 yr old doesn't either. That only leaves Mia and the two kids and I'm fairly certain that to a large degree we can dismiss Ronan's opinion as most 4 yr olds simply don't possess the judgment or knowledge to determine fact from fiction at that age and could be easily manipulated by either parent.This whole "case" against him is looker weaker and weaker every time I look at it.
Darth_Lukecash: JasonOfOrillia: Yes, this fight should be prosecuted in the court of public opinion because all of us are capable of teasing out the truth of the matter.So am I supposed to like Woody Allen or hate him?Here's a really good articleHe's plenty innocent.
