Woody Allen

Talked About Sex with 12-Year-Olds

... 38 Years Ago

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

0205-woody-allen-1976-getty
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.

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.

I vividly remember when the controversial news when Mia went public for her reason in breaking up with Woody. I was utterly shocked to learn that he was molesting their daughter as well as Mia's adopter SoonYi and those naked photos of the very young Soon Yi ALL TAKEN by Woody himself. Mia found those photos in Woody's NY apartment and NO ONE among his Hollywood pals denounced him instead they shunned Mia like a plague. Woody would later on marry Soon Yi to "legitimize" his pedophilic relationship with her which I'm sure broke Mia's heart no end. IMagine your bf who molested your young adopted daughter and took naked photos of her would later marry her. Again her Hollywood pals continued to support and even praise this monster. SICKOS.

Thank you, Enlightened. The Allen camp is engineering a campaign of lies and misdirect. They are aggressively trying to rewrite history. The public is not going to allow him to victimize Dylan again. He made a big mistake by blatantly calling her a liar. Now they're back-pedaling by stating that she probably believes she was assaulted and might be delusional and in need of help.

If nothing happened, why go through so much to try and manipulate the results of the investigation?

SOMETHING HAPPENED and Allen doesn't come off looking innocent.

Maybe it's time we start hitting his Hollywood cohorts where it hurts -- AT THE BOX OFFICE!

Hollywood sold a 7 yr old girl as a victim and turned their head and wiped it from their thoughts- all for an Oscar. We ALL KNOW the accusations are true and he IS a pedophile. He's a bad guy in action and a sociopath in nature. It's sad that he's built a rep for his movies being a shoo in for its star actresses to win an Oscar because now Hollywood is AFRAID of standing up against him.

TMZ doing everything in their power to make Woody Guilty for something the courts and police couldn't even get him charged for because no evidence backed the claim. In fact all the evidence that come out claims that Mia created the story to discredit and win custody battle. Maybe some TMZ readers don't do research cause apparently you guys don't and only go by a snip of an interview with selective editing to prove your point. But if you really do the research you would come to the conclusion that Both Woody and Mia are screwed up individuals but Mia is not so clean in this matter. In fact a true investigation back to this will leave you thinking "Yeah Mia might be a Jealous Ex who is pissed her best years in film are now stuck in the films of the guy who left her for her adopted daughter" Cause you know in the middle of a custody battle in Mia's House surrounded by people who hate his guts Woody is gonna decide that's the best time to abuse one of the kids. Do the true research and stop trying to make someone guilty when they couldn't even bring him up on any chargers and he has adopted two more children since then. So Social Services who do full on investigations into people's backgrounds specially someone like Woody Allen decided he is fit to still adopt.

It's funny, if you asked me to draw a picture of what I thought a pedophile looked like, it would probably end up looking like a cross between Woody Allen and Harry Reid. They both just look a bit creepy.

Now that it's all out there Hollywood is in a position to take a stand for or against pedophilia, and YES- Alec Baldwin there in lies a responsibility to the victim...and all victims observing this situation unfold. Everyone who helped HIDE Woody's sexual addiction to children and disrespectful violations and those who refuse to hold him accountable as they fawn all over him publicly and privately hoping for an Oscar and grateful to him for their Oscar are now PERPETRATORS as much as he is against all helpless little girls and victims brave enough to step forward and tell the truth.

DIANE KEATON, you are participating in support for ALL sexual offenders and pedophiles as this Allen situation takes the public stage. You are ignoring it. The monsters abusing children in private can see how things can be turned around on the child victim to make them look like liars and also on the MOTHERS of the victims BRAVE enough to step forward and say THIS IS WONG and I WON'T LET YOU KEEP IT A SECRET AND GET AWAY WITH THE DAMAGE YOU'VE CAUSED. No doubt there are many mothers who chose to keep it a secret so to protect their child and to avoid scrutiny on themselves and their child...Farrow did the right thing letting the world know. She and Dylan were brave. You are doing the wrong thing, Keaton, showing the perpetrators that they CAN get away with abuse of women and children. You're helping to write their playbook.

He's guilty as sin! He is a straight up pedophile and proud of it. Pedphiles DO NOT rehabilitate. I say lock them all up. They are the scourge of society.

en Todo Momento!!    

people are stupid when they start to talk about 'being open minded about sex'. because when they say this, what they really mean is: i would have sex with anyone and with anything, and this is the 'only normal way to have sex'. they do not include in their 'oh so opnemindedness' that someone who has 'very selective sexual activities' is an ACCEPTABLE FORM OF SEXUAL RELATIONSHIP. all they want to promote, as in vile sexual propaganda is that everything that is not 'common standard sexual behavior' is tolerable, and everything that is 'standard common sexual behavior' is abnormal and undesirable. that, in reality, is not being 'open minded about sex', it is being very narrow minded about sex, and it is being a sex control nazi and a sex control freak who thinks they can tell other people how to live their lives. what he is talking about is not 'being open minded', what he is talking about is being a sexual deviant, a sexual pervert, and regarding this as normal.
