When Woody Allen was promoting Cafe Society at Cannes back in May, The Hollywood Reporter published an op-ed piece by his son Ronan Farrow in which he shat on Hollywood for celebrating and throwing money at the alleged pedo prune. Ronan brought up the allegations that were made by his sister Dylan Farrow and called out a few of the stars of Cafe Society, like Blake Lively and Kristen Stewart, for working with Woody. After it was published, Woody told Variety that he didn’t read it and sort of shrugged it off like it was a bad review. Fast forward to three months later, and Woody is talking about it again.
While promoting Cafe Society during an interview with The Guardian, Woody reminded us that he doesn’t really care. According to Pedobear’s alleged long-lost cousin Toucher Turtle, Ronan’s piece should have been published in The Sun UK’s showbiz section, because it was just a pile of made-up gossip.
“I have no interest in all of that. I find that all tabloid stupidity. That situation had been thoroughly, thoroughly investigated up and down the line by New York social services in a 14-month investigation. It had been investigated by Yale and conclusions were clear and I have no interest in that whole situation. I get harassed all the time on it. But it doesn’t affect me and I just have no interest in it.”
I don’t know what kind of tabloids Woody’s been reading if he thinks long-ass pieces about ignoring the alleged sexual assault between a famous director and his adopted daughter are” tabloid stupidity.” When I think of tabloid stupidity, I think of EXCLUSIVE! stories about celebrities pissing in mailboxes and reality stars announcing that someone knocked them up or Bat Boy getting arrested for DUI. If Woody could give me the name of the tabloids he’s been reading, that would be great. I’d like to avoid them the next time I’m in my doctor’s waiting room or checking out at the grocery store.
