Dylan Farrow has told of her "outrage", "hurt" and anger after "years of being ignored (and) disbelieved" about claims that she was sexually assaulted by the film director.
Woody Allen has always denied allegations that he abused his adopted daughter when she was seven-years-old.
Allen was investigated back in 1992 after his ex wife Mia Farrow, probably best known as the star of the classic horror 'Rosemary's Baby', reported him. But no charges were ever brought against him.
Tomorrow you will see the me my family and friends know. The raw and honest reality. No airs, just the truth. I wanted to face you, I wanted you to see me; not as a Farrow, not as a figure, but as a woman telling the truth to honor the little girl that got left behind. /3 end.

The now 32-year-old Dylan, whose adoptive Grandmother was the Irish actress Maureen O'Sullivan, has conducted her first in-depth interview about the abuse she suffered.
Speaking to CBS This Morning, she said: "Why shouldn't I feel some sort of outrage... after all these years of being ignored, disbelieved and tossed aside?"
She added: "Why shouldn’t I want to bring him down? Why shouldn’t I be angry? Why shouldn’t I be hurt?
"All I can do is speak my truth and hope - hope that somebody will believe me rather than just hearing."
Asked why people should believe her claim, she responded: I suppose that’s on them, but all I can do is speak my truth and hope, hope that somebody will believe me instead of just hearing.”
