Diane Keaton hasn’t been shy about her love of Woody Allen lately; she accepted an award on his behalf at The Golden Globes with a long speech full of babbling praise. When Allen’s daughter, Dylan Farrow, came out with a detailed open letter stating the sexual abuse he did to her, she named Diane Keaton in the letter, asking “how could you forget me?” Now Diane Keaton has come forward with her thoughts regarding the whole controversy.
The Guardian interviewed Keaton and asked if she had a problem with publicly stating her love for Woody Allen. She replied,
No. No. No. He’s the strongest person I’ve met in my life.
They then asked if she “resented” Dylan Farrow for “dragging” her into it:
No. What are they going to do? Who else are they going to drag in? They have to drag someone in. I don’t resent it, not for a second.
And finally, the reported says, “Dylan Farrow’s accusation is that you publicly defended someone who molested her” to which Keaton responded,
I have nothing to say about that. Except: I believe my friend.
So, there you go. Diane Keaton stands behind Woody Allen. I really wish they had gone deeper into her feelings about this.
Allen has denied all allegations.
What do you guys think?

I respect her position. I certainly wouldn’t believe anyone who accused one of my friends of that.
But there’s so much evidence, statements from the police, etc. Like, sadly sometimes we befriend people who do some really awful stuff. The Steubenville rapists were popular boys in their schools, you know what I mean?
I’ve always loved Diane Keaton, that said, I don’t care for or believe Woody Allen. Show business will always back him up because he has the power.
