Woody Allen thinks he should be the ''poster boy for the #MeToo movement''.

The 82-year-old filmmaker has been accused of molesting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was just seven years old - which he has denied - but has insisted that the recent movements to end sexual harassment in Hollywood are ''a good thing'', and believes he should be the face of the movement because no actress has ever accused him of being inappropriate on set.

Woody said: ''I'm a big advocate of the #MeToo movement. I feel when they find people who harass innocent women and men, it's a good thing that they're exposing them. But you know I - I should be the poster boy for the #MeToo movement, because I have worked in movies for 50 years. I've worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one - big ones, famous ones, ones starting out - has ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all. I've always had a wonderful record with them.''

The 'Midnight In Paris' director was first accused of molesting Dylan - who is the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow - in 1992, after she told her mother what had happened, who then reported it to the authorities.

Law enforcement investigated the alleged incident at the time, but a prosecutor declined pressing charges, and in the wake of the creation of the #MeToo movement, Dylan, now 32, has repeated her accusations numerous times.

Speaking to Argentinian news program 'Periodismo Para Todos' on Monday (04.06.18), Woody said of the allegations: ''This is something that has been thoroughly looked at 25 years ago by all the authorities and everybody came to the conclusion that it was untrue. And that was the end and I've gone on with my life. For it to come back now, it's a terrible thing to accuse a person of. I'm a man with a family and my own children. So of course it's upsetting.

''I think in any situation where anyone is accused of someone unjustly, this is a sad thing. I think everybody would agree with that. Everyone wants justice to be done. If there is something like the #MeToo movement now, you root for them, you want them to bring to justice these terrible harassers, these people who do all these terrible things. And I think that's a good thing. What bothers me is that I get linked with them. People who have been accused by 20 women, 50 women, 100 women of abuse and abuse and abuse - and I, who was only accused by one woman in a child custody case which was looked at and proven to be untrue, I get lumped in with these people.''
