Woody Allen has hit back at allegations he molested his daughter Dylan Farrow.

The iconic filmmaker - whose adopted child recently spoke out claiming he had abused her at the age of seven - has penned an open letter in which he denies any wrongdoing and insists she has been ''exploited'' by her mother Mia.

He wrote in the New York Times: ''Of course, I did not molest Dylan. I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's well-being.''

The 'Blue Jasmine' director also revealed while Dylan believes the allegations, he thinks she feels that way as a result of his ex-partner convincing her it happened.

He said: ''Not that I doubt Dylan hasn't come to believe she's been molested, but if from the age of 7 a vulnerable child is taught by a strong mother to hate her father because he is a monster who abused her, is it so inconceivable that after many years of this indoctrination the image of me Mia wanted to establish had taken root?''

In his in-depth essay, Woody insisted his ex-wife even ''fabricated'' the location of the abuse, adding it was a too ''cramped'' a space for someone who suffers with claustophobia.

He continued: ''Even the venue where the fabricated molestation was supposed to have taken place was poorly chosen but interesting.

''Mia chose the attic of her country house, a place she should have realized I'd never go to because it is a tiny, cramped, enclosed spot where one can hardly stand up and I'm a major claustrophobe.

''The one or two times she asked me to come in there to look at something, I did, but quickly had to run out.''

Woody initially faced allegations in 1992 during a custody battle with Mia, but they were later dropped without charge.
