  • Lena Dunham has already been vocal about supporting Dylan Farrow, who accused Woody Allen of molestation, but the Girls creator now says it's wrong to look at the director's films to use as evidence against him.
    "In the latest Woody Allen debate I'm decidedly pro-Dylan Farrow and decidedly disgusted with Woody Allen's behavior," she said on Marc Maron's WTF Podcast Monday. "But for me, when people go through his work and comb through it for references to child molestation, that's not the f---ing point."

    "I'm not going to indict the work," Dunham continued. "I think that you can decide that you don't want to support the work of somebody who has molested a child. That's a completely appropriate choice. But going through it and saying, 'Look, he's told us in 57 ways that he rapes kids,' that's not the thing. The thing is to look at the actual evidence that exists in the world, which I think strongly suggests that Woody Allen is in the wrong. But for me the point is not to go through his one-act plays looking for references to child molestation. Because I'm not comfortable living in a world where art is part of how we convict people of crimes."
    After Dylan Farrow publicly accused her adoptive father of sexually molesting her when she was 7 years old, Allen denied the claims and blamed her mother and his former partner, Mia Farrow for brainwashing their daughter.
