Allen’s wax double wins the creepy contest
Only one thing is certain: Woody Allen has had a rough few weeks.
As we begin to recover from our shock over the tragic death of Philip Seymour Hoffman, we can expect to hear a lot more about the other story that rocked the entertainment world last week: the newly resurfaced allegations that Allen abused partner Mia Farrow‘s adopted daughter more than 20 years ago—when she was only 7 years old.
Dylan Farrow’s open letter, published by The New York Times‘ Nicholas Kristof, went into graphic detail about the allegations, which first surfaced during Allen’s very public separation from Farrow. As Kristof himself reported, the public’s response was mixed:
Quite a gender gap in reaction to Dylan’s essay. Many men are denouncing me for publishing it; many women thanking me for the same.

One woman is definitely not thanking him: Woody Allen’s publicist Leslee Dart.
