Diane Keaton - Diane Keaton supports Woody Allen

Diane Keaton still supports Woody Allen despite allegations he sexually abused his adopted daughter as a child.

The 'Annie Hall' star, who dated the 'Blue Jasmine' director for five years when they first met almost five decades ago and has starred in eight of his movies, insists Dylan Farrow's recent accusations that he molested her when she was seven haven't affected their friendship.

The Oscar-winning actress told the May issue of More magazine: ''I'm Woody's friend and I've been Woody's friend for 45 years. And nothing's going to change that.''

French actress Vanessa Paradis, who has been working with the 78-year-old filmmaker on 'Fading Gigolo,' also recently voiced her support for Woody.

She said: ''Woody is brilliant, there's no other way to say it.''

Dylan's mother Mia Farrow first made the abuse claims during a 1992 custody battle with Woody and the allegations were investigated but later dropped without charge.

Meanwhile, Diane, who has two adopted children, Duke, 13, and Dexter, 18, has dated a number of other Hollywood stars, including Warren Beatty and Al Pacino, in the past, but claims she never got married because she never met the man of her dreams.

She said: ''I told myself I wanted to. But I didn't really want a man that I could have... I wanted the dream.''
