    From MrsD: Neither of these two...no, make that three (so Soon Yi is included) are allowed to adopt any more kids. Nanny cams must be put in Woody's homes until these girls are 18. And any visits said three (Woody, Soon Yi or Mia...and by extension, anyone in a romantic relationship with any of these three) have with any grandchildren under 18 must be supervised.

    Wallace Shawn says Woody Allen sex abuse allegations as shocking as if FDR was accussed



    Wallace Shawn has become the latest public figure to defend Woody Allen amid the scandal surrounding his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow's renewed accusations that he molested her.


    Shawn, who's arguably best known for his performance in The Princess Bride, has worked with Allen several times -- including in Manhattan, Radio Days and Melinda and Melinda -- and came to the director's defense in an op-ed published in Sunday's Los Angeles Times.


    Although Shawn says he doesn't consider Allen a friend, he claims he's worked with him enough that he can no longer view him as an abstract figure that one would gossip about.


    "In fact, like so many of those who have worked with him repeatedly over the decades, I've found him to be not merely thoughtful, serious and honest, but extraordinary and even inspiring in his thoughtfulness, seriousness and honesty. Of the people I've known, he's one of those I've respected most," Shawn writes, adding that those attributes make it hard for him to believe that Allen molested Dylan.


    "And for that reason, I personally would have to say that it would take overwhelming evidence to convince me that he had sexually abused a child, just as it would take overwhelming evidence to convince me that Desmond Tutu, Franklin D. Roosevelt or Doris Lessing had sexually abused a child," Shawn writes.


    Shawn writes in the L.A. Times that he's learned that just because people engage in atypical sexual behavior, like an older man falling in love with a very young woman and upending his life and that of his family, as seemed to be the case when Allen began having an affair with Mia's adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, that doesn't mean they're capable of anything, including molesting children.


    He's also surprised that people are so quick to declare Allen guilty of a crime that, if it did occur, happened in a private place, making it difficult to determine the truth from the outside.


    Shawn, however, does hedge his defense of Allen by noting that "we don't have overwhelming evidence about what happened or didn't happen on the day in question." And, Shawn writes, "Obviously if he did not in fact commit the crime, this is an appalling situation."

    Though the statute of limitations may have run out, there are no limits when it comes to the court of public opinion.
    No criminal charges can be brought against Woody Allen in the wake of Dylan Farrow's allegations that he sexually abused her in 1992, but that's not stopping anyone from expressing their thoughts on the incident. Page Six reports that while attending a matinee of the Broadway show “After Midnight,” with his wife Soon-Yi Previn and their two daughters, Allen was "heckled" by an audience member who yelled, "I think he did it!” in reference to the allegations.
    Witnesses told Page Six that Previn shot the heckler a "dirty look," while Allen seemed "unfazed."
    Allen's adopted daughter Dylan wrote an open letter in the New York Times on Feb. 1, revisiting allegations that the director molested her when she was seven years old. Allen denied the accusations in his own piece in the Times the following week, writing that it would be his "final word on this entire matter." Dylan responded to Allen's op-ed with an essay in The Hollywood Reporter, calling his version of the events "outright lies.

    If I was Desmond Tutu I think I'd be a bit peeved to have my name dragged into an article on Woody Allen.

    So because he is nice to you, a similarly aged actor, he can't possibly be a pedophile? Of course not. Pedophiles are guys who live in the gutter and lure kids to their car with candy.

    This story is so troubling I don't like it. Family secrets will be buried with them.

    Most molestation happens in private places. Not sure why this is such a surprise to him.

    "Obviously if he did not in fact commit the crime, this is an appalling situation."
    More appalling if he did.


    I can appreciate friends of Allen stepping forward and saying, hey, I know this guy and I don't believe it. That seems fair. But this guy was more or less a temporary co-worker. He's still entitled to his opinions, of course, but it doesn't hold much water imo.
