Cate Blanchett on Dylan Farrow-Woody Allen Sexual Abuse Claim: I Hope They Find Peace

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Cate Blanchett, the star of Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, has responded to the open letter penned by the famed director’s adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow.

In it, she claims Allen sexually assaulted her when she was a girl.

In one of Farrow's letter’s more powerful moments, she name-checks actors who’ve worked with and supported Allen in Blue Jasmine and in the past.

“What if it had been your child, Cate Blanchett? Louis CK? Alec Baldwin?" Dylan Farrow writes, calling out Hollywood's implicit support of Woody Allen.

"What if it had been you, Emma Stone? Or you, Scarlett Johansson? You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?”

Now, two of those actors have acknowledged the letter.

Blanchett, an Oscar nominee for the film, said, “It’s obviously been a long and painful situation for the family and I hope they find some sort of resolution and peace.”

Alec Baldwin's response was harsher, not surprisingly.

“What the f&@% is wrong w u that u think we all need to b commenting on this family’s personal struggle?” he tweeted Sunday. “So you know who’s guilty?"

"Who’s lying? You, personally, know that? You are mistaken if you think there is a place for me, or any outsider, in this family’s issue,” Baldwin added.

He later deleted his responses, also not surprisingly.

Allen denies her claims of sexual abuse, responding, via his publicist earlier, by saying that he is not and was not responsible for “Dylan’s distress.”

Clearly, his now-adult adopted daughter disagrees.
