Woody Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has hit out at Hollywood’s double standards after Kate Winslet defended the filmmaker, saying he is “on some level a woman”.
Ms Farrow (32) has repeatedly claimed Allen sexually assaulted her when she was seven. Winslet, who stars in Allen’s latest film ‘Wonder Wheel’, defended the director in a recent interview, saying he writes strong female characters because he is in some ways a woman himself.
“I just think he’s very in touch with that side of himself. He understands the female characters he creates exceptionally well,” she told reporters.
In the wake of the Harvey Weinstein scandal, Ms Farrow has hit out at actresses who continue to work with the film director while publicly lampooning Weinstein.
