Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of Woody Allen, gives harrowing details of the August day in 1992 when he allegedly sexually abused her, in her first TV interview.
Woody Allen‘s adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, 32, continues to speak out against the Oscar-winning director with claims that he sexually abused her as a child; And this time, she’s detailing her alleged sexual abuse out loud, in her first television interview. Farrow broke down in tears explaining Allen’s alleged sexual abuse that she claims occured in an attic on August 4, 1992. “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 that was set up,” Farrow recalled to Gayle King on CBS This Morning. “And he sat behind me in the doorway, and as I played with the toy train, I was sexually assaulted… As a 7-year-old I would say, I would have said he touched my private parts… As a 32-year-old, he touched my labia and my vulva with his finger.” Farrow, who has stood by her story for two decades, has told the same story in op-eds and open letters in the past.
Farrow described how Allen was “always touching me, cuddling me and if I ever said, you know, like I want to go off by myself, he wouldn’t let me…He often asked me to get into bed with him when he had only his underwear on and sometimes when only I had my underwear on.” She added: “I loved my father. I respected him. He was my hero. And that doesn’t obviously take away from what he did. But it does make the betrayal and the hurt that much more intense.”
