Woody Allen

Talked About Sex with 12-Year-Olds

... 38 Years Ago

2/5/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There was smoke nearly 40 years ago -- Woody Allen didn't explicitly say he was a pedophile ...but he sure came close ... openly describing a hypothetical orgy involving him and fifteen 12-year-old girls.

TMZ dug up the 1976 interview published in People.  Then 41-year-old Woody said, "I'm open-minded about sex. I'm not above reproach; if anything, I'm below reproach. I mean, if I was caught in a love nest with fifteen 12-year-old girls tomorrow, people would think, yeah, I always knew that about him."

He added, "Nothing I could come up with would surprise anyone ... I admit to it all."

And here's another gem: "It's no accomplishment to have or raise kids. Any fool can do it."

Funny ... because 4 years later -- in 1980 -- Woody began dating actress Mia Farrow, with whom he'd have one child and adopt two, including daughter Dylan ... who later accused him of sexually assaulting her at age 7.  He then married her sister.

Truth    

The FUNNY thing is how dupes on the internet convict people every day whenever they hear whatever they want to hear. You had Bieber sloppy drunk in a Lambo going 100 mph through the middle of Miami just the other day.

WOODY IS DOING WHAT HE SAID THEN AND WAS PROBABLY THEN. HES LIKE PEOPLE WE SEE IN MOVIES WE DIDNT EXPECT TO BE MURDERS OR CHILD MOLESTERS! MAN, MONEY CAN MAKE A LIER A SAINT! HE IS TEFLON BECAUSE BY NOW, NO CHARGES AT ALL. ANYONE WHO SAYS THAT SOMETHING IS IN THEM DEEP(SEXUAL EVIL)! IM AMAZED HOW AMERICANS STILL CANT SEE THERES A DOUBLE STANDARD FOR WHITE RUCH MEN, I JUST IS. WANT TO GET AWAY WITH ANYTHING, BECOME RICH AND WHITE AND A MAN!

Suggests he moved on from Mia ...to her children?

Quickly.

Early-on we become "props" to these types.

Led-on in a cruel way.

Paid lip service.

Patronized-to-the-max.

By people that have no soul or conscience.

To them we're a piece on a chess/checker board.

WOODY PROBABLY HAS NEW VICTIMS, DONT BE SHOCKED IF YEARS FROM NOW OR SOONER OTHERS COME OUT FROM THE SHAME OR FEAR OF NOT BEING BELIEVED AND SAY HE DID THINGS TO THEM. ANY MAN WHO MARRIES HIS ADOPTED ASIAN CHILD HAS ISSUES, STEVIE WONDER IS SAYING, "YA'LL CANT SEE THAT, EVEN I CAN" HAHAHA! THIS IS SO SAD AND EGREGIOUS THAT THE LEGAL SYSTME AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE POWER TO PROSECUTE HAVE DONE NOTHING. DO AMERICANS STILL BELIEVE THE SYSTEM IS FAIR? IF THIS WAS A POOR OR WORKING CLASS BLACK MAN ACCUSED OF THIS OR A POOR OR WORKING CLASS WHITE MAN HE WOULD BE THROWN UNDER THE JAIL. RICH PEOPLE VERSUS POOR, THE CLASSISM, THE NEW SEPARATION, NO, THE ONE TRUE SEPARATION!!!!

Woody Allen is a gross old pervert. His movies suck to say the least. Who goes to see his movies but artsy type people. I totally believe his daughter regarding the molestation accusations. Case in point...Soon-Yi.

Many powerful people in Hollywood and the media are circling the wagons to protect Allen. Their primary tactic is to paint Farrow as a bitter "scorned woman" (I defy anyone to look at Allen and tell me that any woman is pining for this "George Clooney Clone"). But what is NOT being reported are the pertinent facts in the prior criminal and family court cases. UPCHUWALLY, a commenter at the NY Daily News website, has provided the following facts related to the prior investigation. PLEASE READ:

1. The Yale team used psychologists on Allen’s payroll to make mental health conclusions. BLATANT CONFLICT

2. Custody recommendations were made even though the team never saw Allen and any of the children together.

3. The team refused to interview witnesses who could have corroborated the molestation claims. Witnesses stood by their claim.

4. The team destroyed its notes. They shouldn’t have anything to hide, unless there’s disagreement. DESTROYED EVIDENCE!

5.·Dr Leventhal, the only medical doctor on the team, did not interview Dylan.

6 The night before Leventhal gave a statement to Farrow’s attorney, he discussed the scenario with Abramowitz, the head of Allen’s legal team, for about 30 minutes.

7.· The team interviewed Dylan nine times. For three consecutive weeks, she said Allen violated her se**ually. In several of the other sessions, she mentioned a similar type of abuse. When Dylan did not repeat the precise allegation in some of the sessions, the team reported this as an inconsistency.

8.Leventhal himself later admitted, in sworn testimony in the custody case, that he made several mistakes during the course of the investigation. One of those was his false characterization of Dylan’s active imagination as a thought disorder. He decided there was no abuse.

9. "Then on Jan. 6, 1993, Allen appeared at the state police barracksin Litchfield for a three-and-a-half-hou­r interview. He denied assaulting Dylan. He denied ever having been in the crawl space.

But Allen did say he might have reached into the crawl space on occasion, either to grab one of the children or to give them a soda. State police reminded Allen that to reach into the crawl space, he would have had to enter a small closet first. Allen vehemently denied entry to the crawl space.
But when state police told Allen they had taken fingerprints from the crawl space, he said it was possible that his prints would be found there. State police characterized Allen's statements as inconsistent. HE LIED to police!

10. Allen's private detectives were compartmentalized, hired by different lawyers and subcontractors working for him, police say. The private detectives included former FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration agents, even former state cops who were friends with Mucherino. "They were just trying to disrupt the case. We all know today, in light of O.J., that if you have nothing to go on, you go after law enforcement."

D'Amico says the Allen team played a number of dirty tricks. Other law enforcement officials suspect that they had something to do with the false rumor that a top police investigator on the Allen case was trying to sell a videotape of Dylan to the tabloid media.
The state police immediately began an internal affairs investigation of this trooper, who was cleared. Former Chief State's Attorney Austin McGuigan said the allegations had to affect "the investigator's ability to do his job."

"The investigation closed down for about 10 days," Maco recalls. "About this time, I was told there was a campaign to disrupt the investigation and discredit the investigators, being orchestrated out of New York."

11.Judge Wilk sided against Woody, he questioned the findings given the cir***stances.He called Woody Allen a "self-absorbed, untrustworthy and insensitive" father given the evidence.

12 . Woody's past history of dating a 17 year-old high school girl (Stacey Nelkin) identifies him having issues of pedophilla. I think most are now are agreeing.
