On Tuesday, CBS announced that an interview with Dylan Farrow by CBS This Morning co-host Gayle King will air on Thursday. Per CBS, the interview will cover “[Farrow’s] allegations that she was sexually abused by her father, Woody Allen, and…Hollywood’s Time’s Up movement.”
Farrow tells King in the course of the interview, which was taped Monday at Farrow’s home in Bridgewater, Connecticut, “I am credible and I am telling the truth and I think it’s important that people realize that one victim, one accuser, matters. And that they are enough to change things.”
For months following the revelations of the Harvey Weinstein sex abuse scandal men continued to suffer material consequences as a steady supply of previously unpublicized sexual misconduct allegations saturated the press (a process which is, of course, ongoing). It was a phenomenon to which Woody Allen, whom his daughter has accused for decades of molesting her when she was a child, appeared startlingly immune as filming began on another one of his romantic farces, A Rainy Day in New York.
But in the last few weeks we’ve seen a sudden backlash against Allen, which has perhaps precipitated the timing of this interview. In the last week two stars of Allen’s forthcoming film—Timothée Chalamet and Rebecca Hall—have promised to donate their earnings from acting in the film to various charities that do support work for victims of sexual abuse.
Additionally, Greta Gerwig, Mira Sorvino, and Rebecca Hall, who have all acted in Allen’s films, have said that they will not work with him again.
