7-Year-Old Adoptive Daughter of Woody Allen Describes the Sexual Abuse She Endured From the Hollywood Predator
Horrifying audio has been released to the public of Dylan Farrow at the age of seven describing sexual abuse she endured from her former adoptive father, acclaimed Hollywood director Woody Allen.
Allen has been celebrated by Hollywood despite these allegations being known for years. He is also infamous for marrying his former stepdaughter, Soon-Yi Previn. Hollywood has showered Allen with praise anyway, and the film industry was happy to look the other way, as they did with convicted child predator Roman Polanski. Producer Harvey Weinstein’s exploits were not exactly a secret, too.
Allen’s ex-wife, Mia Farrow, recorded the audio detailing Allen’s illicit exploits after a babysitter observed the neurotic filmmaker with his face allegedly buried in Dylan’s lap.
Dylan addressed the controversy publicly with a lengthy social media statement after she decided to allow the audio to be heard by the public.
“I’m writing this, because to be totally honest I have been losing sleep and overcome with anxiety. Tonight’s episode of the Allen v. Farrow docuseries features a video of me as a seven-year-old child disclosing my abuse to my mother,” she started. “My mother gave me this video when I became an adult to do whatever I wanted with it. It shows me as I was then, a young, vulnerable child. ‘Little Dylan,’ whom I’ve tried ever since to protect.”
“Deciding to allow this tape to be viewed now publicly in this way has not been easy. I myself had resisted ever watching it until now. It had been long stored away in a closet. Scared. Buried,” Farrow continued. “I almost didn’t offer it to the filmmakers, because being this vulnerable in public is absolutely terrifying for me. My fear in letting this tape come to light is that I am putting Little Dylan in the court of public opinion.”
Dylan added, “While I have been able to take the stones thrown at me as an adult, to think of that happening to this little girl is stomach-churning. But I decided to let them share it in hopes that Little Dylan’s voice might now help others suffering in silence feel heard, understood, and less alone. And that my testimony might also help parents, relatives, friends, loved ones and the world in general understand first-hand how an abused child might speak and interpret these horrific events.”

Dylan is also blowing the whistle about how Allen escaped any culpability for the alleged pedophilia he committed.
“I would meet with some adults who would show me an anatomically correct doll and ask me where Daddy had touched me,” Dylan says in the third episode of the HBO docuseries Allen v. Farrow. “And I would repeat the story over and over and over again. It was grueling and it was intense and I hated it.”
Dylan says that the trauma continued as the child was treated as if she was a liar for coming forward with her truth about the Hollywood predator.
“The more I was asked the same question over and over the more I started to wonder, ‘What do they want from me?’ And feeling like the more I said the same thing that it was the wrong answer,” Dylan says in the docuseries.
“If I change a word here, they say I’m being inconsistent, if I’m using the same exact words I used every other time, I was coached,” she adds. “Every little idiosyncrasy that I could have had as a 7-year-old girl was used against me.”
Former federal prosecutor and The View co-host Sunny Hostin believes that the interrogation tactics used on young Dylan were highly inappropriate.
“You don’t interview a child about the same allegation over and over and over again. You interview the child the least amount of times as possible so as not to re-traumatize the child,” he said.
Eventually, investigators concluded that Dylan was “unreliable, untrustworthy and/or that Mia Farrow was a fabricator of this incident.” Yet again, the left-wing institutional power protected a Hollywood predator from receiving any kind of justice.
