Hollywood is starting to take sides in the growing Woody Allen sex scandal.
The story exploded after Mia Farrow’s daughter Dylan Farrow wrote an open letter to The New York Times renewing allegations that the famous director (her former adoptive father) had sexually abused her as a child.
And Farrow, 28, called out stars like Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin for defending the Blue Jasmine director.
But the pair seem to be on Team Woody as this point.
Cate told one Hollywood blogger: “I hope that they (the Farrow family) can find some sort of resolution and peace.”
While Baldwin told his followers on Twitter that Dylan’s allegations where “this family’s personal struggle” while he would not be baited into speaking-out on the issue.
But younger stars like Lena Dunham are backing her publicly.
The Girls star tweeted: “To share in this way is courageous, powerful and generous.”
While The Last Ship actor Adam Baldwin went even further by saying: “Woody Allen being #ShortEyes sexual predator shouldn’t surprise anyone.”
Looks like Hollywood is divided into two camps over this sad story — Allen was never prosecuted of any offense when the allegations first surfaced over 20 years ago.
