Lena Dunham is squarely on Team Dylan Farrow.

Having come out in defense of sexual assault victims soon after Farrow penned an open letter in The New York Times that accused Woody Allen of molestation, the Girls Season 3 star appeared this week on WTF with Marc Maron.

And she offered up a strong opinion on Allen in the process.

"I’m decidedly pro-Dylan Farrow and decidedly disgusted with Woody Allen’s behavior," Dunham said on the podcast, adding:

"But for me, when people go through his work and comb through it for references to child molestation, that’s not the f-cking point. I’m not comfortable living in a world where art is part of how we convict people of crimes.”

Scarlett Johansson is speaking out against Dylan Farrow.

The actress was one of the celebrities called out specifically by Farrow in her open letter to The New York Times last month, in which Farrow stated Woody Allen molested her and asked stars such as Johansson and Alec Baldwin how they can continue to work with the director.

In an interview with The Guardian, Johansson took issue with Farrow's approach to the sensitive situation.

“I think it’s irresponsible to take a bunch of actors that will have a Google alert on and to suddenly throw their name into a situation that none of us could possibly knowingly comment on," Johansson said. "That just feels irresponsible to me.”

For a scandal in which there are no legal consequences, now or ever, the Dylan Farrow-Woody Allen saga is dominating headlines this month.

Farrow, 28, was jointly adopted by Allen, 78, and former partner Mia Farrow, 69. She says Allen molested her in the early '90s, when she was 7.

  • W. Allen

Allen denied the allegations then, but they resurfaced this winter after Farrow penned open letter to the N.Y. Times recounting her father's molestation of her.

The famed director has reiterated his denials, blaming Mia for coaching Dylan, making up untrue stories and fostering a lingering resentment of him.

Dylan immediately countered that Woody Allen is a child molester and he can say whatever he wants, but the truth is on her side and she won't be silenced.

Which seems to be her endgame. Allen wasn't prosecuted in 1992, though Farrow claims there was probable cause, and he will not be in 2014.

The widespread acclaim of Blue Jasmine and his iconic career in general seems to be the impetus for Dylan, who feels her story mustn't be forgotten.

Who to believe? We'll likely never know for sure, as both sides are adamant and unyielding in their positions in this decades-long blame game.

Just hours after Woody Allen broke his silence regarding child molestation accusations made by daughter Dylan Farrow, she's back with a rebuttal of her own.

The acclaimed film director penned an open letter to the New York Times insisting that he did not sexually assault the then-seven-year-old, as she says.

He also claimed that her mother, Mia Farrow, "coached her" to say Dylan Farrow was molested by him. But in response, Dylan stands by her story.

"Once again, Woody Allen is attacking me and my family in an effort to discredit and silence me, but nothing he says or writes can change the truth," Dylan says.

"For 20 years, I have never wavered in describing what he did to me. I will carry the memories of surviving these experiences for the rest of my life."

Allen's op-ed, she says "is the latest rehash of the same legalese, distortions, and lies he has leveled at me for the past 20 years," Farrow went on.

For the first time since being publicly accused of molestation, Woody Allen has spoken out regarding his Dylan Farrow's recent allegations.

And the famous director has made it as clear as he can in a New York Times op-ed.

"Of course, I did not molest Dylan," he writes in an piece that will appear in tomorrow's paper. "I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's well-being."

Last weekend, Dylan Farrow said that Allen sexually abused her as a seven-year old, detailed horrible acts he committed in the attic of her childhood home.

Rosie O'Donnell returned to The View today, seven years after leaving her spot as a host on the daytime talk show.

And the panel wasted no time getting straight to some controversial topics, bringing up Dylan Farrow's accusations against Woody Allen and asking for Rosie's take on them.

“I totally believe her," O'Donnell said simply, citing the 1992 investigation that did NOT result in charges against the director and telling folks to read the documents because:

"There was cause to prosecute, but they thought would be too traumatic for the 7-year-old child.”

Earlier this week, Barbara Walters defended Allen in a very awkward exchange between View colleagues, one that made the long-time reporter sound like she's in complete denial.

Take note of Walters' face here as Rosie states her stance:

Dylan Farrow is not backing down.

A few days ago, the stepdaughter of Woody Allen accused the famous director of sexually abusing her a child - and she's been at the center of a heated debate ever since.

Barbara Walters defended Allen on The View. Moses Farrow, Dylan's stepbrother, took the side of Allen and said Dylan is either lying or has been brainwashed by her mother.

Celebrities from Alec Baldwin to Lena Dunham have voiced their opinions on the subject.

"It took all of my strength and all of my emotional fortitude to do what I did this week in the hope that it would put the truth out there," Dylan tells People in a new interview.

Moses Farrow is making his voice loudly heard in the ongoing Dylan Farrow-Woody Allen controversy.

On February 1, Dylan penned a letter in The New York Times that detailed multiple occasions of sexual abuse at the hands of the famous director, dating back to when she was seven years old.

Allen's attorney has since come out and shot down these allegations, alleging Mia Farrow brainwashed Dylan into believing the story as a way of getting back at Allen for sleeping with her stepdaughter, Soon-Yi Previn, who is now Allen's wife.

And Moses Farrow is essentially saying the same thing.

A few days ago, Dylan Farrow accused Woody Allen of sexually assaulting her as a seven-year old, calling out Hollywood stars for standing by the director in the process.

Since then, reaction has been swift and scattered.

Barbara Walters is defending Allen... Alec Baldwin is saying this is no one's business... Lena Dunham is standing up for all sexual abuse victims.

Stephen King, meanwhile, is backtracking from a confusing, seemingly insulting Tweet.

Asked for his thoughts on the situation, King wrote on Twitter last night night:

Woody Allen is yet to personally address Dylan Farrow's scathing accusations that he sexually abused her as a child.

A rep for the actor came out this week and referred to the claims as disgraceful and untrue, however, and now Allen's attorney has given a passionate defense of his client during an appearance on Today.

"His reaction is one of overwhelming sadness because of what has happened to Dylan," Elkan Abramowitz said of the director, explaining that Allen believes Dylan to be a "pawn" in a long-time feud between him and her mother, Mia Farrow.

"The idea that she was molested was implanted in her by her mother," Abramowitz said. "That memory is never going to go away. So the fact that she says this now, that it happened 20 years ago, is totally understandable."
