Han Solo: "I made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs." Ron Howard voiceover: "He didn't."
Allen responded to Ronan Farrow's explosive essay in The Hollywood Reporter yesterday, which re-explored the long-standing abuse allegations against the director.
Following blistering allegations made by his estranged son Ronan Farrow about how the media doesn’t talk about sexual abuse accusations made against his father, Woody Allen has responded to what was said in the essay.
Journalist Farrow had written an op-ed in The Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday (May 11th), moments before Allen’s press conference ahead of the opening of his new movie Café Society at Cannes Film Festival.
In that piece, Ronan questioned why the media wasn’t asking hard-hitting questions about the accusations his sister, Dylan Farrow, made against their estranged father dating back to the early ‘90s. Dylan repeated those allegations in an open letter in the New York Times blog in February 2014, but accused the media industry of silencing her by not effectively following it up.

He writes an essay defending his sister and shaming reporters for their handling of the allegations.
Well, this has been quite the awkward start to the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. With Woody Allen's new film 'Cafe Society' opening the event and critics praising the movie, his adoptive son Ronan Farrow has used his father's spotlight to slam the media for not taking sexual abuse allegations made by daughter Dylan Farrow seriously.
Ronan Farrow speaks out about woody Allen and the press
Indeed, the scandal has barely been mentioned over the past couple of weeks leading up to Cannes. Mostly because Allen is a very powerful man and no charges were ever brought against him. However, last week, The Hollywood Reporter interviewed Allen in a piece that does mention the allegations, but only as a brief contextual sidenote. Ronan Farrow was not happy with the way the subject was treated, and the inaccurate way it was protrayed (THR said that accusations were 'dropped by police' before changing it to 'not pursued') and so he used the publication to later release an account of his own thoughts on how Allen is being treated in the media.

Ronan Farrow - =TIME celebrates its TIME 100 issue of the 100 most influential people in the world gala at Frederick P. Rose Hall in New York City - New York City, New York, United States - Tuesday 29th April 2014
Jiro Horikoshi is an aeronautical engineer whose childhood was filled with dreams about becoming a pilot. His poor vision meant that he would never realise his ambition, but he is encouraged to keep up his passion by Italian plane designer Caproni. Resolving to design aircrafts instead of fly them, Jiro studies the art at university, during which time he meets an attractive young woman named Naoko. Their relationship was born out of the dangerous circumstances of the Great Kanto Earthquake, throughout which they helped one another off a fast moving train. As their life together progresses, Naoko falls ill and Jiro struggles to bring in a regular income. He must succeed in the challenge of building the most exquisitely beautiful aeroplane in the world in order to get back on his feet, as his career could be the only thing he has left.
'The Wind Rises' is romantic, heart-wrenching animated adventure directed and written by the Oscar winning Hayao Miyazaki ('Spirited Away', 'Princess Mononoke', 'Howl's Moving Castle'). This Japanese drama, loosely based on Tatsuo Hori's 1936 short story 'The Wind Has Risen', features the voices of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt and Stanley Tucci in the English version. It is due for release in the UK on May 9th 2014.
When Jiro Horikoshi was a young boy, all he ever dreamed about was flying planes - at least he did until one night he came across Italian plane designer Caproni in one of his dreams, who subsequently told him that his poor vision means he'll never be a pilot. Jiro instead resolves to take up aeronautical engineering and design aircrafts himself . While at university, he meets a young woman named Naoko who he helps off a train during the Great Kanto Earthquake and the pair become close. His life begins to spiral, however, with his work projects becoming few and far between and Naoko's health deteriorating. But will Jiro finally realise his dream and build an aircraft of pure beauty? Or will his dream come crashing to the ground?

Activist Ronan Farrow appears to be texting on his iPhone as he attends a press conference for the female punk band Pussy Riot. One photographer asks if he can ask Ronan about the situation with his sisters, but he politely declines. 'Sorry, we're just here for Pussy Riot. Thanks!' He replies as he is ushered away by an assistant.
Moses Farrow has spoken out against his sister Dylan Farrow's open letter detailing Woody Allen's alleged molestation.
Woody Allen has denied allegations he sexually assaulted his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow.
Dylan O'Sullivan Farrow alleged, in an open letter published in The New York Times, that Allen had sexually abused her at the age of 7. A separation, fierce custody battle and 22 years have not pacified or resolved the large family or their particularly unique brand of issues.
Ronan Farrow has a bright future.
Ronan Farrow may well be Woody Allen's biological son, then again, he could be Frank Sinatra's. In a Vanity Fair interview that probably didn't do Ronan any favors this week, his mother Mia Farrow made the case for old blue eyes being the daddy.
Ronan hasn't seen Woody for years and his likeness to Sinatra is striking, however, it's not wise to use the 25-year-old as the subject of gossip, speculation and celebrity tittle-tattle. This guy is arguably the smartest guy in the family - whether that includes Woody, or Frank - and he's got a big future.
Ronan has been a determined human rights activist since graduating from Bard College at the ripe old age of 15. "I grew up with altruism on display in a pretty intense way," he told Forbes, referring to his 10 adopted siblings, some of whom suffer from severe disability.

A DNA test to determine Ronan's paternity has never been undertaken, had Sinatra truly been the father of Ronan, he would have been 73 at the time of his birth. Allen responded "The article is so fictitious and extravagantly absurd that he is not going to comment."

Could Ronan Farrow be the son of Frank Sinatra?
