Woody Allen's adoptive daughter writes letter about sexual abuse

See also

Woody Allen's adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow has decided to speak out about the sexual abuse that she says went on when she was growing up. On Feb. 1, New York Times shared the open letter that she wrote. She starts out asking about what everyone thinks of when they think of their favorite Woody Allen movie. She doesn't have good memories.

Dylan describes just being 7-years-old when she was told to play with her brother's toy train on the floor and was then sexually assaulted by Woody Allen. He told her it was their secret, promised her movie roles, and ended up scarring this little girl for life.

She even hid under the bed and locked herself in the bathroom to stay away from him. Dylan describes that Woody did several things to her she felt were inappropriate and she hated every single minute of it. Of course Allen never admitted to it and said she was lying, but Dylan Farrow now describes herself as someone who was sexually abused as a child. This letter is heartbreaking and he was never convicted of these crimes.
