Woody Allen Tribute: Farrows Take To TwitterBy: Amanda Crum - January 13, 2014
Woody Allen was given the Cecil B. DeMille lifetime achievement award at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, but because he’s not a fan of awards shows, he had longtime friend and collaborator Diane Keaton accept on his behalf. After a somewhat strange speech, Keaton ended with a rendition of “Make New Friends” that had many wondering if she was inebriated during the festivities.
But the speech wasn’t what had Allen’s estranged son Ronan Farrow so upset; both he and Allen’s ex, Mia Farrow, took to Twitter to let the world know they were unhappy with the award.
“Missed the Woody Allen tribute – did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?” Ronan wrote.
Mia was a little more subtle, tweeting right when the tribute began, “Time to grab some icecream & switch over to #GIRLS”.
According to a Vanity Fair article on Farrow and her children, daughter Dylan opened up about the sexual abuse perpetrated by Allen and says she has memories of feeling like a bad child because she tried to tell him no.
“According to Dylan, “There’s a lot I don’t remember, but what happened in the attic I remember. I remember what I was wearing and what I wasn’t wearing.” She tells Orth, “The things making me uncomfortable were making me think I was a bad kid, because I didn’t want to do what my elder told me to do.” The attic, she says, pushed her over the edge. “I was cracking. I had to say something. I was seven. I was doing it because I was scared. I wanted it to stop.” For all she knew, she tells Orth, “this was how fathers treated their daughters. This was normal interaction, and I was not normal for feeling uncomfortable about it.” Woody Allen’s lawyer Elkan Abramowitz says that Allen still denies the allegations of sexual abuse.”
Mia Farrow later tweeted more about the accusations against Allen:
