Lena Dunham has a lot to say about why women are unfairly likened to their characters, while men such as “perv” Woody Allen get a pass.
“Woody Allen is proof that people don’t think everything he says in his films is stuff that he does because all he was doing was making out with 17-year-olds for years and we didn’t say anything about it,” Dunham shared at Sundance Film Festival’s Power of Story: Serious Ladies panel on Saturday, reports Deadline.com.
“And then he did it,” she added about the “Manhattan” director. “A bunch.”
The 28-year-old’s comments, which were met with slight murmurs from the audience, reference allegations that Allen sexually abused his adopted daughter, Dylan.
“No one went that Woody Allen is making out with a 17-year-old in Manhattan and I guess he’s a real perv,” she added. “And then lo and behold,” Dunham said before fellow panelist Kristen Wiig jumped in, “He fell in love.”
“I say one thing on the show and am accused of having erred,” she added voicing her concerns.
