Dylan Farrow Describes Alleged Molestation ... Cries at Woody Allen's Denial

"I was taken to a small attic crawl space in my mother's country house in CT by my father", Farrow told Gayle King on "CBS This Morning" on Thursday. During the new interview, she said: "As a 32-year-old: he touched my labia and my vulva with his finger".

When King played a clip of a 60 Minutes interview in which Allen refuted the allegations, Farrow began to cry, apologizing to King.

For the record, Allen was investigated twice, criminally, but never charged.

He said Mia, Dylan's adoptive mother, was "relentlessly coaching" her - a claim Farrow rejected. Add to that that this was Farrow's first TV interview, which brought tears as well as more explicit descriptions of what's she said has happened, and the gravity of Farrow's story is finally ringing true-and just maybe bringing an end to Allen's prolific film career in the process.

"I never molested my daughter - as all investigations concluded a quarter of a century ago", he said. Why shouldn't I be hurt?

Farrow also denied Allen's suggestion that her mother had "coached" her into to believing her father had molested her.

"I believe Dylan", Oscar-winner Natalie Portman told Oprah Winfrey in a recent group interview with others who included Reese Witherspoon.

Actor Alec Baldwin on Tuesday expressed support for film maker Woody Allen as a growing number of entertainment industry stars seek to distance themselves from the "Annie Hall" director as part of the Time's Up campaign against sexual misconduct.

Dylan Farrow, the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and Allen, had made the allegations before: First, they were investigated in 1992, and detailed in an article in Vanity Fair.

She added that she would not be working with the filmmaker in the future, and referencing Farrow, the actress and director concluded: 'Dylan Farrow's two different pieces made me realise that I increased another woman's pain, and I was heartbroken by that realisation'.

"With so much silence being broken by so many fearless people against so many high profile people, I felt it was important to add my story to theirs because it's something I've struggled with for a long time", she told CBS.

"Why shouldn't I feel some sort of outrage. after all these years of being ignored, disbelieved and tossed aside?"

Previously, Mira Sorvino also spoke up to HuffPost apologizing to Dylan Farrow for not believing her.

However, a source close to the singer stated that she has in fact also donated to the Time's Up movement - and has given significantly more than she was paid for A Rainy Day in NY. Though King noted that some might call that normal behavior for a loving father, Farrow replied, "Except he wasn't this way with Ronan [Farrow]", her brother.

"I want to show my face and tell my story", she said.

Allen suggested at the time that Farrow had changed her story because she was coached by her mother, who months earlier had discovered that Allen had been having an affair with her adopted daughter Soon-yi Previn. "Now that I no longer live in fear of her rejection, I am free to share how [Mia] cultivated and brainwashed me", he said. "With so much silence being broken by so many fearless people against so many high-profile people, I felt it was important to add my story to theirs", she said, adding, "I am a real person and I've been struggling, coping on my good days, with the aftershocks of being sexually assaulted as a small child and that's real".
