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)
