Acclaimed film director Woody Allen, who has seen some in Hollywood distance themselves from him after his daughter Dylan Farrow alleged that he molested her when she was 7, talked about the #MeToo movement during an interview with Argentine journalist Jorge Lanata that was aired Sunday night.
Allen “says he should be the face of the #MeToo movement in terms of what to do right,” the AP reports.
“Allen says he’s a ‘big advocate’ of #MeToo and that he should be the poster face for the movement because he has worked with hundreds of actresses over 50 years, and they’ve never ‘suggested any impropriety,'” the story reports.
The report notes that Dylan Farrow renewed her allegation against him in 2014.
“Allen has long denied the allegations,” the AP notes, adding: “He was investigated but not charged.”
