dylan-farrow-01-600Dylan Farrow says it took all her courage to write the open letter that was published in the New York Times.

“It took all of my strength and all of my emotional fortitude to do what I did this week in the hope that it would put the truth out there,” says Dylan, 28, now a happily married writer. “That is my only ammunition. I don’t have money or publicists or limos or fancy apartments in Manhattan. All I have is the truth and that is all I put out there.”…

Dylan says she thought long and hard about coming forward with her story in her own words. In her Feb. 1 letter, she expounded on the allegations she made in Vanity Fair, saying, “For as long as I could remember, my father had been doing things to me that I didn’t like.”

Allen, 78, has vehemently denied any abuse, with his rep telling PEOPLE, “Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful.”
