OTRC: Woody Allen reacts to Dylan Farrow's claims of child molestation

Woody Allen appears at the premiere of 'To Rome With Love' at the Los Angeles Film Festival on June 14, 2012.

A representative for Woody Allen says the director calls Dylan Farrow's allegations of child molestation "untrue and disgraceful."

Publicist Leslee Dart said in an email Sunday that Allen has read Farrow's open-letter, published online by The New York Times, claiming she was sexually assaulted by her then-adoptive father as a 7-year-old. Dart also said Allen will be responding soon.

Farrow claimed that in 1992 at the family's Connecticut home, Allen led her to a "dim, closet-like attic" and "then he sexually assaulted me." Farrow didn't specify Allen's actions, but described other abusive behavior.

Connecticut prosecutors investigated the allegations in 1993 but found insufficient evidence to charge Allen. The 78-year-old director has long maintained his innocence.
