Scarlett Johansson is being ripped by Woody Allen’s adopted daughter, for her recent defense of the director.
Dylan Farrow, who has accused Woody of molesting her as a child, took to Twitter to respond to Johansson’s recent interview saying she believes Allen’s denials.
Farrow responded to a Tweet from the Los Angeles Times about Scarlett’s comments.
She wrote “Because if we’ve learned anything from the past two years it’s that you definitely should believe male predators who “maintain their innocence” without question. Scarlett has a long way to go in understanding the issue she claims to champion.”

Farrow is responding to Johansson’s sit down with The Hollywood Reporter to talk about a variety of topics including Allen.
She was then asked about her thoughts on Allen, following the #MeToo movement and his daughter Dylan Farrow accusing him of abuse.
Johansson has starred in three of Allen’s films; Match Point (2005), Scoop (2006) and Vicky Cristina Barcelona (2008). She has received critical acclaim for the roles and has shared a close relationship with the director.
She said, “I love Woody. I believe him, and I would work with him anytime.”
She continued, “I see Woody whenever I can, and I have had a lot of conversations with him about it. I have been very direct with him, and he’s very direct with me. He maintains his innocence, and I believe him.”
Allen has been accused by his daughter Dylan of sexual abuse. Allen and his ex Mia Farrow adopted Dylan. She gave her first interview about the alleged abuse last year.
In the interview, she said Allen lied for years about the alleged abuse. Farrow claimed Allen sexually assaulted her when she was 7.
Dylan said during the sit-down, “As a seven year old, I would say he touched my private parts, which I did say. As a 32 year old, he touched my labia and my vulva with his finger.”
Allen has denied the allegations of sexual abuse. He would later marry Mia’s other adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn, who he is still with till this day.
