Lena Dunham - Lena Dunham praises Dylan Farrow

Lena Dunham has voiced her support for Dylan Farrow.

The 'Girls' creator and star praised Woody Allen's adopted daughter, 28, for being ''courageous'' after she penned an open letter over the weekend alleging the 'Blue Jasmine' director, 78, had abused her at the age of seven.

The 27-year-old actress shared a link to Dylan's letter on Twitter and wrote: ''To share in this way is courageous, powerful and generous. Please read.''

She added: ''Grateful my timeline is full of so much love and respect for Dylan.''

But Lena later hit back at some of her followers for suggesting Dylan had falsely accused her famous father, whose lawyer, Elkan Abramowitz, has since denied the allegations and claimed they were simply ''implanted'' by Dylan's mother and Woody's former partner Mia Farrow.

The Emmy-winning actress tweeted on Monday (03.02.14): ''In wake of Dylan's letter I've noticed a lot of guys obsessed with the idea of being falsely accused.

''As if you would just be walking down the street one day, get accused of assault or sexual misconduct, and suddenly life would derail ...

''Though there have, of course, been plenty of terrible and unjust cases in the past, remember ... Most victims NEVER speak up. Most never feel they can.

''These are not stories we tell for fun, attention or revenge.''

Dylan's claims were previously investigated and dismissed in 1992, and Woody's lawyer suggested they have only resurfaced now out of Mia's ''desire to hurt'' her former partner.
