CANNES, France - Woody Allen says he doesn't read anything written about him, even if it's by his own son.

Allen said Thursday that he will not read his son Ronan Farrow's essay that resurrects Dylan Farrow's allegations that Allen molested her. The Hollywood Reporter published Ronan Farrow's piece just as Allen was premiering his new movie, "Cafe Society," at the Cannes Film Festival in France.

The 80-year-old filmmaker told Vanity Fair that he has long refused to read press about himself or his films and included his son's essay among such content. Allen also declined to address Farrow's charges, saying he has "said everything I have to say about it."
