During Monday’s episode of WTF with Marc Maron, Lena Dunham spoke about her public support of Dylan Farrow, and because you can’t talk about one without the other, the conversation turned to Oldie Pedo Director Turtles. After reading Dylan’s open letter accusing Woody Allen of being a child-toucher, the internet did what the internet does best and rounded up every single instance of Woody sounding like/acting like/being a complete creep from each of his movies (I think there was something close to 8 million). But Lena is saying that even though he’s “nauseating”, we shouldn’t focus on Annie Hall or Manhattan or whatever the fuck he made after those two, because it doesn’t matter:
“In the latest Woody Allen debate I’m decidedly pro-Dylan Farrow and decidedly disgusted with Woody Allen’s behavior. But for me, when people go through his work and comb through it for references to child molestation, that’s not the fucking point. I’m not comfortable living in a world where art is part of how we convict people of crimes.”
I’m not saying what I do here at Dlisted is ART (“It’s not” – all of you), but I’d hate it if someone read what I wrote and was convinced I was a food-hungry sloth-human, or that Michael K was nothing more than a drunk slut (“Speak for yourself” – MK). What I’m trying to saying is, I agree that Woody Allen’s movies aren’t proof that he’s a creep-looking creep; they’re just evidence that he makes boring movies for rich white people. Now, Woody Allen’s face, on the other hand…definitive proof that he’s a creep-looking creep.
Meanwhile back at Molester’s Cove (his home away from home) Woody Allen is clutching the #1 Molester trophy that was snatched away from him last week by Terry Richardson, because we’re talking about him again, and he has Lena Dunham to thank for it. “Why does this muffin basket stink of not-right molester turtles?” – Lena Dunham.
And because I don’t want your last mental image to be a basket of rotten pervert muffins, here’s Lena Dunham last week at an event wearing a makeup remover wipe she found in Christina Aguilera’s trash can.
