Diane Keaton defends Woody Allen then is attacked by Judd Apatow who calls out his child predation

Diane Keaton is standing by her Annie Hall director and longtime friend, Woody Allen, in the midst of renewed scrutiny into sexual abuse allegations made against him by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was a child.

“Woody Allen is my friend and I continue to believe him,” the famous actress tweeted Monday. “It might be of interest to take a look at the 60 Minute interview from 1992 and see what you think.”

In the decades-old interview, which Keaton shared in her tweet, Allen denies Farrow’s claims, which have resurfaced in light of the #MeToo movement.

Keaton’s comments come after Alec Baldwin took to his own Twitter account on Sunday to compare Farrow to a character who lied about her rape in the classic novel To Kill a Mockingbird.

Judd Apatow has renewed his attacks on Allen and Keaton.

“I see a man who wanted what he wanted and didn’t care that he was having an affair with a 19 year old when he was 54 who was also his daughter’s sister. He also took nude photos of this child who he had known since she was nine and left them out for his family to see. Narcissism,” Apatow wrote on Twitter.

Dylan has long maintained that Allen molested her on Aug. 4, 1992, in the attic of their Connecticut home. In a New York Times piece, she wrote: “[My father] told me to lay on my stomach and play with my brother’s electric train set. Then he sexually assaulted me… I remember staring at that toy train, focusing on it as it traveled in its circle around the attic. To this day, I find it difficult to look at toy trains.”

Colin Firth, Greta Gerwig and Mira Sorvino, have said they apologize for or regret working with Allen.

“I wouldn’t work with him again,” Firth, who starred in Allen’s 2013 film Magic in the Moonlighttold The Guardian. Gerwig, who worked with Allen on 2012’s To Rome With Lovetold The New York Times, “I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film.”
