Dylan Farrow appeared on the four-part HBO docuseries Allen v. Farrow Sunday night, where she spoke of her relationship with Woody Allen, her adoptive father whom Farrow alleges sexually abused her as a child. The charges were first levied against Allen in 1992, but after a custody battle denied Allen visitation rights, Dylan’s mother, actress Mia Farrow, declined to pursue criminal charges. While Allen has repeatedly denied the allegations in the nearly 30 years since they were first made, in Allen v. Farrow, Farrow describes a disturbing relationship with her father.
“I mean, I worshipped him. He was so funny and he made me feel so special. That’s where things get really, really complicated, because threaded throughout all of those good times, there was a lot more going on. Every time he showed up at the apartment, like a magnet, he would just come straight to me. Intense affection all the time,” Farrow said, adding, “I was always in his clutches. He was always hunting me.”
Farrow first opened up publicly about the alleged abuse in a 2014 letter in which she wrote, “I didn’t like when he would stick his thumb in my mouth. I didn’t like it when I had to get in bed with him under the sheets when he was in his underwear.” While the documentary has yet to air Farrow speaking specifically about the sexual abuse she allegedly suffered, in two of the more disturbing moments from the show, Farrow spoke about both of these situations.
“I have memories of getting into bed with him. He was in his underwear, and I’m in my underwear, cuddling,” Farrow said. “I remember his breath on me. He would just wrap his body around me, very intimately.”
And Farrow described Allen doing much more than simply sticking his thumb in her mouth.
“I remember sitting on the steps with him in the country house. There was nobody else around, and he was directing me on how to suck his thumb,” Farrow said, “telling me what to do with my tongue. And I think that lasted a while. It felt like a long time.”
