Mia Farrow Didn’t Want Dylan Farrow to Talk About Woody Allen Sex Abuse Claims

  Mia Farrow Didn’t Want Dylan Farrow to Talk About Woody Allen Sex Abuse Claims Mia Farrow expanded on the tumultuous year her children have had, revealing that she originally didn’t want her daughter Dylan to go public with her story of alleged abuse at the hands of Farrow’s ex-partner Woody Allen. “I just wanted it all to go away,” Farrow said at the Time 100 gala Tuesday night. “I did not want to resurrect — it was a horrible chapter for all of us, but I also understood and respected that she needed to do that and she wanted to be part of the Me Too movement and have her voice heard.

On Wednesday, Moses Farrow — the adoptive son of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen — posted a personal essay on his blog. In the post, Moses defended Allen against the long-standing sexual-abuse allegations from his sister Dylan Farrow, and also accused his mother of physical and emotional abuse. Dylan later responded to her brother’s claims in a statement shared to Twitter, calling Moses “a troubled person.”

Woody Harrelson Says Willie Nelson Convinced Him to Smoke Pot Again After a 2-Year Break

  Woody Harrelson Says Willie Nelson Convinced Him to Smoke Pot Again After a 2-Year Break Peer pressure is real. Woody Harrelson made an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, where he opened up about what finally made him smoke pot again after quitting for several years. “I quit for almost two years. No smoking, no vaping,” he said. “Every once in a while you’re going to have something edible. Let’s be real, I’m not a nun.” But Harrelson said after running into Willie Nelson, who is known for his love of getting high, the temptation became harder than ever to resit. “He was never comfortable with me quitting, it just bothered him,” he said. “I would always say, ‘Willie you know I’m not smoking,’ ” he continued. “He would always do the same thing like he was hearing it for the first time, ‘Oh really? Sorry!’ This happened like 500 times.” After playing a game of poker with the musician, the actor and longtime marijuana advocate said he finally caved. “I was in a celebratory mood and he hands me that pin and I was just snatched and it was like ‘ah, f— it,’ ” he said. “I take a big draw of it and he says ‘Welcome home, son.’ ” RELATED VIDEO: Woody Harrelson Jokes About His Role in the Upcoming ‘Star Wars’ Spinoff Woody Harrelson Jokes About His Role in the Upcoming 'Star Wars' Spinoff Woody Harrelson recently confirmed he would play Han Solo’s mentor Harrelson has a decades-long history supporting the legalization of marijuana and has even served on the advisory board of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws.

In his post, Moses attempted to contradict Dylan’s allegations of abuse against Allen, citing supposed inconsistencies (that a friend’s nanny allegedly saw Allen’s head in Dylan’s lap in the TV room, not the attic, for example). He also concluded that the allegations were a product of brainwashing from his mother. Moses also asked why his father’s critics are so sure of his guilt, given the numerous accusations against other powerful men in Hollywood.

Later that day, Dylan slammed her brother’s defense of Allen as the latest step in a continued effort to discredit her allegations. “As I said when he last made these claims, this is an attempt to deflect from a credible allegation made by an adult woman, by trying to impugn my mother who has only ever been supportive of me and my siblings,” she wrote in her statement.

Dylan also cited her brother’s long-standing support of her allegations (as he publicly denounced Allen in 1992, before allegedly changing his story). “It’s easily disproven, contradicts years of his own statements, is beyond hurtful to me personally, and is part of a larger effort to discredit and distract from my assault,” she continued. “My brother is a troubled person. I’m so sorry he’s doing this.”
