Dylan Farrow denied Woody Allen’s claims Friday that she was coached by her mother to say she was sexually assaulted, responding to Allen shortly after he published an uncompromising denial of allegations he molested his adopted daughter.
Farrow said that Allen’s letter, published Friday in the New York Times, consists of “the latest rehash of the same legalese, distortions, and outright lies he has leveled at me for the past 20 years,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
In his letter, Allen said Mia Farrow vindictively coached her daughter during her breakup with the star director and actor, arguing that Mia manipulated her daughter to seek revenge against Allen.
Dylan Farrow responded: “Once again, Woody Allen is attacking me and my family in an effort to discredit and silence me – but nothing he says or writes can change the truth. For 20 years, I have never wavered in describing what he did to me. I will carry the memories of surviving these experiences for the rest of my life.”
Allen said in his Friday letter he will no longer be commenting on the case. “Enough people have been hurt,” he wrote.
