Diane Keaton Supports Woody Allen. Enough Said.

You can't blame her for talking about it. As Diane Keaton embarks on the promotional tour for her new memoir Let's Just Say It Wasn't Pretty, she was bound to be asked where she stands on Woody Allen and the sex-abuse allegations leveled against him by his stepdaughter Dylan Farrow in February. After all, she was his Annie Hall. Even after their working relationship ended, Keaton and Allen have remained friends.

When the scandal came up during a recent interview with The Guardian, Keaton didn't waver, and she was clearly prepared for the question. "I have nothing to say about that," she told Emma Brockes. "Except: I believe my friend."
When Brockes asked how Keaton felt about being name-checked in Farrow's damning New York Times editorial, Keaton said she wasn't hurt. "They have to drag someone in. I don't resent it, not for a second." Nor was she close to Dylan's mother, Mia Farrow: "She's very charming. But, I never knew her as a friend."
It's easy enough to believe the whole thing is a PR stunt, engineered to name-drop a headline winner as Keaton promotes her book, stirring up a controversy that's lately fallen silent after think piece upon think piece failed to either condemn or exonerate Allen in the public imagination. But, as with the scandal itself, speculation isn't helpful here. Keaton isn't telling us to believe Allen — just that she does. (The Guardian)
