“Why shouldn’t I want to bring him down?” Farrow asks
King. “Why shouldn’t I be angry? Why shouldn’t I be hurt? Why shouldn’t
I feel some sort of outrage that after all these years, being ignored
and disbelieved and tossed aside?”
Farrow has alleged for years that she suffered abuse
from Allen as a child and tells King that now it’s “on them” whether or
not people want to believe her. She says all she can do is “speak my
truth and hope” when it comes to whether or not people will side with
her or Allen.
“I hope that somebody will believe me instead of just hearing it,” Farrow said.
Farrow has been making headlines recently for calling
out celebrities in the midst of the #MeToo and Time’s Up
anti-harassment movements. She specifically criticized Justin Timberlake
and Blake Lively for being advocates against sexual harassment and abuse, despite the fact they have both worked with Allen and continue to support him.
In recent weeks, many actors who have worked with
Allen in the past have come forward to express their regrets over the
decision in light of Farrow’s allegation. Farrow has thanked each one
for their statements, including Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, Griffin
Newman, and David Krumholtz. Rebecca Hall and Timothée Chalamet are
the stars of Allen’s new film, set to premiere later this year, and
they both have vowed to donate their salary to the Time’s Up legal
Farrow’s full interview on “CBS This Morning” will air tomorrow. Watch the first-look preview below.
