Woody Allen's 'Blue Jasmine' stars Alec Baldwin and Cate Blanchett comment on sexual abuse allegations from Dylan Farrow

By Gina DiFalco,

Woody Allen’s adopted daughter, Dyan Farrow, penned a letter published in the New York Times, detailing the alleged sexual abuse she endured at the hands of her estranged father. In the letter, she mentions actors like Alec Badlwin and Cate Blanchett, who have been featured in Allen’s films.

She wrote at the end of her letter, “What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin? What if it had been you Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?”

According to People, Blue Jasmine star Blanchett responded to Farrow at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Saturday night.

"It's obviously been a long and painful situation for the family and I hope they find some sort of resolution and peace," she told journalist Jeffrey Wells. Meanwhile, Baldwin responded on Twitter.

"What the f&@% is wrong w u that u think we all need to b commenting on this family's personal struggle?" he wrote, adding to another Twitter user, "So you know who's guilty? Who's lying? You, personally, know that? You are mistaken if you think there is a place for me, or any outsider, in this family's issue."

Baldwin also wrote, “USA is supposed to be THE place where you get a fair trial. Can a fair trial be conducted w everyone's tired opinions on the internet?”
