Dylan Farrow is giving her first TV interview about her father, Woody Allen.
Mia Farrow's daughter accused Allen of molesting her in 1992 when she was 7 years old. The director, who split from Farrow that year, was investigated by Connecticut State Police but not charged. He has repeatedly denied the allegations.
In an upcoming appearance on CBS This Morning, however, Dylan Farrow insists she's telling the truth. "I am credible, and I am telling the truth, and I think it’s important that people realize that one victim, one accuser, matters, and that they are enough to change things,” she says in a preview for the interview, which will air on Thursday, Jan. 18, at 7 a.m. ET/PT.
Farrow's statements about her father have caused several prominent actors, including Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall and Timothee Chalamet to publicly express their regret over working with him. Hall and Chalamet recently announced they would be donating their salaries from working with him to organizations like Time's Up.
In a series of tweets on Tuesday, however, Alec Baldwin spoke up in defense of Allen, insisting that Hollywood actors turning their back on him is "unfair and sad."
"Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose. But it’s unfair and sad to me," Baldwin wrote. "I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career."
"Is it possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent? I think so," Baldwin continued. "The intention is not to dismiss or ignore such complaints. But accusing ppl of such crimes should be treated carefully. On behalf of the victims, as well."
Selena Gomez, who stars alongside Hall and Chalamet in Allen's latest movie, has yet to speak out against the director. However, her mother, Mandy Teefey, revealed she disapproves of her daughter's involvement in the film. Watch below.
