Dylan Farrow blasts Hollywood A-listers for working with Woody Allen

Dylan Farrow is disgusted by Hollywood stars working with her father Woody Allen after she accused him of molesting her.

The 30-year-old actress penned an open letter about her award-winning father in 2014, claiming he molested her in a "dim, closet-like attic" at their family home when she was just seven years old.

Dylan - whose mother is 'Hannah and Her Sisters' actress Mia Farrow - said: "It makes my blood boil quite honestly.

"Every time I see a new celebrity agreeing to work with him, I feel like my message didn't get across and I failed and it's very hard to not succumb to that."

Despite Dylan's letter receiving widespread publicity, it has not damaged Woody's career, as he has subsequently worked with the likes of Joaquin Phoenix and Emma Stone.

Dylan told the New York Daily News newspaper: "In retrospect I feel like a different person wrote that essay, I had no idea the stir it would cause obviously.

"I spent so long as a victim of sexual abuse and hiding from that and avoiding any sort of contact with that whole arena of people out there ... that essay plunged me headfirst into a very, very deep rabbit hole of rape culture and a lot of online trolling that I could not have been prepared for."

Meanwhile, Woody has previously denied the accusations made against him, suggesting Dylan had been "used as a pawn for revenge" against him by his estranged former partner, Mia.

The 'Blue Jasmine' director - who has been married to Mia's adopted daughter Soon-Yi Previn since 1997 - said: "Of course, I did not molest Dylan.

"I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's well-being."
