Director-actor Woody Allen says he leads a very isolated life as the past experiences have made him weak and he does not have much friends. The 80-year-old comedian opened up about the traumas he has faced, including repeated accusations of sexual abuse by daughter Dylan Farrow, reported People magazine.

“That situation had been thoroughly, thoroughly investigated up and down the line by New York social services in a 14-month investigation. I get harassed all the time on it. But it doesn’t affect me and I just have no interest in it.

“There are traumas in life that weaken us for the future. And that’s what’s happened to me. The various slings and arrows of life have not strengthened me. I think I’m weaker,” Allen said.

In 2014, Dylan, one of his three children with ex Mia Farrow, publicly claimed that Allen molested her as a child. The Cafe Society filmmaker also revealed that he sometimes feels alone.

“I don’t have that many friends. I lead a very isolated life. I come home and I’m with my family. I go to dinner with a few friends and, every once in a while, they’ll ask for advice, but it’s never existential,” he added.

Allen’s biological son Ronan Farrow and his adopted daughter with Farrow have often slammed Hollywood for working with the director. The director is now reconciled with his other adopted son Moses but he remains estranged from Dylan and Ronan.

Farrow, meanwhile, has hinted Ronan is actually Frank Sinatra’s son. When asked whether the whole thing altered his view of the world?, Allen said, “No, no. It confirmed all my misanthropic feelings.”
