After the HBO documentary “Allen v. Farrow” premiered, many rallied behind Woody Allen’s back to show support and share their own narratives about how professional and kind he was behind-the-scenes.

Most recently, Sharon Stone appeared on SiriusXM’s “The Michelle Collins Show” to talk about “The Beauty of Living Twice” and touched on her own experience working with the famous film director.

According to the actress, Allen showed nothing but professionalism as colleagues and had nothing but beautiful words to describe the creative man. She told the host:

“I can say that while the documentary may very well be a hundred percent true, it is not my experience [...] He was extraordinarily encouraging to me.”

Stone was only 19 years old when she began working with the director. Another Hollywood star, Scarlett Johanson, also defended Allen following the docuseries’ release, calling him a great and respectful man.

Months later, then-seven-year-old Dylan Farrow accused his adopted father of sexual assault.

“The Avengers” star believes Allen’s narrative and said that she would love to work with him again. According to the actress, Allen is a good friend she had worked closely with in the past.

Because of her experiences, she finds no reason to doubt Allen and can’t simply believe any narrative that comes out. However, she also noted that her stance does not mean or imply the lack of support for women.

The documentary includes interviews with Allen’s ex-wife and adopted daughter, Mia and Dylan, and Dylan’s brother and New Yorker journalist Ronan Farrow, alongside legal and psychological experts.

Allen and Mia shared several kids, one biological, Ronan, and two adopted, Moses and Dylan. Mia also had three biological kids from her previous relationship, Matthew, Sascha, Fletcher, three adopted children, Lark Song, Summer Song, and Soon-Yi.

In the ‘90s, Allen began a relationship with his stepdaughter, Soon-Yi, who was about 20 at that time. The following year, Mia discovered nude photos of Soon-Yi taken by Allen, which simply broke her heart.

Months later, then-seven-year-old Dylan Farrow accused his adopted father of sexual assault. However, the star director denied all allegations and continued living his life with Soon-Yi, whom he eventually married.
