Diane Keaton and Woody Allen are great friends and have been for years, and she’s now breaking her silence on the sexual abuse allegations brought against him by his estranged adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow.
The scandal got reignited in February, when Farrow penned an open letter for the New York Times providing more details about the alleged abuse.
Keaton hasn’t commented on it like other celebrities have, but she’s now standing firmly behind Allen.
She told The Guardian, "I have nothing to say about that. Except: I believe my friend.”
Farrow included Keaton’s name in the open letter, writing at the end "You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?"
However, Keaton denies ever being friends with Dylan’s mother, Mia Farrow.
"I saw her maybe three times. I didn't know her. It's not a bad accusation. I was never friends with Mia — I was friendly. Sort of like I'm friendly with you. I like you, I like the way you are. I like the way she is, too. She's very charming. But I never knew her as a friend,” she explained. “A friend — that's a commitment. It's as close as you can get to family, and sometimes it's even closer. Friendship requires a lot of time."
