As empowering a moment as this moment is, there's still a long way to go." Fair enough. According to the report, Billie Lourd's dad and CAA partner Bryan Lourd tried to broker a sit down between Farrow and Weinstein.
And to those who've suggested that Farrow's family drama made it so he couldn't be objective in his reporting, he revealed that several journalists (including Tom Brokaw) "laughed at the idea that there was a conflict of interest." In fact, the further he got in to investigating Weinstein's sexual misconduct, the more his celebuspawn status protected him. In addition to being advised to drop the story, Ronan also received threatening phone calls and had mysterious men stalking him.
In a statement to USA TODAY through rep Leslee Dart, Allen again called the allegations false.
“Dylan Farrow’s allegations against Woody Allen, which she first made 25 years ago, have been thoroughly examined by law enforcement officials and child welfare investigators.
And probably, yes, the family background made me someone who understood the abuse of power from an early age." Still, the Farrows have dismissed the narrative of "the son of Hollywood taking down the system." Even Ronan's mother, Mia Farrow, defended that her son went after Harvey Weinstein as it was a MAJOR story.
She added: Of course, Ronan is well aware of the gossip that Frank Sinatra may be his real father.
Hemingway was reportedly upset after the kiss and asked cinematographer Gordon Willis, “I don’t have to do that again, do I?
” Hemingway wrote in a book that Allen attempted to date her after the film, when she was 18 years old, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“All art is partly autobiographical — it comes from inside someone’s mind, inside their soul.
As you likely know, Allen was accused of molesting his daughter Dylan Farrow in 1992.

And while Ronan is humbled by the praise he's received for exposing the predatory Hollywood heavyweight, he wants readers to know that the real heroes are the women who chose to speak out.
At the end of the day, Farrow doesn't even consider himself an advocate on the topic of sexual abuse. I think it's completely possible to be both a skeptical, judicious reporter and also create a space for survivors to be heard.
