Actress and humanitarian Mia Farrow Monday added to comments she and her son made Sunday in response to Woody Allen winning an honorary Golden Globe Award.

"A woman has publicly detailed Woody Allen's molestation of her at age 7," tweeted Farrow, 68, referring to her and Allen's adopted daughter Dylan, who now goes by a different name. "Golden Globe tribute showed contempt for her and all abuse survivors."

An hour later she added of Allen, "Is he a pedophile? Read this Vanity Fair article and make up your own mind." Her tweet linked to a lengthy online summary of Maureen Orth's feature about Farrow's family in the November issue. Allen has steadfastly denied the allegations. In 1994, a divided New York State appeals court ruled in Farrow and Allen's custody battle that the sex-abuse findings were inconclusive, but barred visitation between Dylan and Allen pending further investigation.

On Sunday, Farrow -- who was in a relationship with Allen from 1980 to 1992 -- tweeted, "Time to grab some ice cream and switch over to [HBO's] 'Girls' " when the televised Golden Globes ceremony announced Allen's win of the Cecil B. DeMille Award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment."

Allen was not present, and his frequent co-star and former romantic partner Diane Keaton accepted on his behalf.

"Missed the Woody Allen tribute," Ronan Farrow, 26, tweeted Sunday. "Did they put the part where a woman publicly confirmed he molested her at age 7 before or after Annie Hall?"
