Diane Keaton has finally broken her silence regarding the accusations that Woody Allen sexually abused his adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow.
"I have nothing to say about that. Except: I believe my friend," the actress told The Guardian.
Keaton got unintentionally dragged into the scandal when Farrow called out the actress, along with other Allen film stars Scarlett Johansson and Cate Blanchett, for indirectly defending the director through their silence. "You knew me when I was a little girl, Diane Keaton. Have you forgotten me?" Farrow wrote in a New York Times editorial.

While Keaton says she doesn't "resent" Farrow publicly calling her out, she did imply Farrow exaggerated the extent of their relationship. "I saw her maybe three times," she said. "I didn't know her. It's not a bad accusation. I was never friends with Mia — I was friendly. Sort of like I'm friendly with you. I like you, I like the way you are. I like the way she is, too. She's very charming. But I never knew her as a friend. A friend — that's a commitment. It's as close as you can get to family, and sometimes it's even closer. Friendship requires a lot of time."
