Diane Keaton memorably starred in some of then-boyfriend Woody Allen’s most famous films, from Manhattan to Annie Hall.
Keaton kept on working with Allen long after the two split.
Now, Keaton is speaking up on the director’s behalf in the wake of allegations he sexually abused his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, when she was 7. She spoke with People magazine about the charges, throwing her support behind her old flame.
I love Woody,” Keaton tells People in the magazine’s Most Beautiful issue (available on newsstands Friday). “I don’t want to say anything about [his daughter Dylan Farrow’s accusations that he molested her, which he denies] except I’m Woody’s friend, and I believe him. That’s the bottom line for me.”
She continues, “I worry for him and everybody else involved, and I hope it works out for the best for everyone.
