WITH “CBS THIS MORNING” CO-HOST GAYLE KING ABOUT HER ALLEGATIONS OF CHILDHOOD SEXUAL ABUSE BY HER FATHER, WOODY ALLEN
Dylan Tells King: “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”
Exclusive Interview to Air on “CBS This Morning” Jan. 18
In her first television interview, Dylan Farrow opens up to CBS THIS MORNING co-host Gayle King about her allegations that she was sexually abused by her father, Woody Allen, and discusses Hollywood’s #TimesUp movement. Previews will air tomorrow on CBS THIS MORNING and the CBS EVENING NEWS WITH JEFF GLOR, with the interview broadcast on CBS THIS MORNING Thursday, Jan. 18(7:00-9:00 AM).
“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,” Farrow tells King during a wide-ranging interview conducted Monday at her home in Bridgewater, Conn.
In 1992, Farrow, the adopted daughter of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow, accused Allen of sexually assaulting her when she was 7 years old. Allen has repeatedly denied those allegations. However, Farrow’s allegations have now resurfaced in the light of the movement in Hollywood to expose sexual abuse in the workplace.
