Woody Allen is speaking out – and denying that he sexually abused his adopted daughter.
A rep for the usually press-shy director, 78, issued a brief response to the open letter from estranged daughter Dylan Farrow, who detailed what she alleged was sexual abuse she suffered when she was 7 years old.
“Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful,” the rep tells PEOPLE. “He will be responding very soon.”
