Dylan Farrow slammed Woody Allen following his comment that he should be the “poster boy for the MeToo movement.”
“All Woody Allen’s recent antics demonstrate his desperation to salvage a now faltering career,” the 32-year-old actress tweeted Tuesday. “His true feelings on [Harvey] Weinstein and the #MeToo movement were made evident in his initial reaction and defense of Weinstein.”
“Everything he says now is nothing more than a PR strategy in an attempt to undermine the credibility of the allegations against him.,” she added. “We are all wiser to that now and know the lengths powerful men will go to in order to demean and silence their victims.”

“I feel when they find people who harass innocent women and men, it’s a good thing that they’re exposing them,” Allen said. “But you know, I should be the poster boy for the #MeToo movement, because I have worked in movies for 50 years. I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one–big ones, famous ones, ones starting out–have ever, ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all. I’ve always had a wonderful record with them.”
The “Midnight in Paris” director also, once again, denied any wrongdoing in response to Farrow’s allegations she suffered abuse at the hands of the director when she was seven years old.
“Of course not. I mean, this is just so crazy,” Allen said. “This is something that has been thoroughly looked at 25 years ago by all the authorities and everybody came to the conclusion that it was untrue. And that was the end and I’ve gone on with my life. For it to come back now– it’s a terrible thing to accuse a person of. I’m a man with a family and my own children. So, of course, it’s upsetting.”
