Woody Allen has responded to the sexual assault allegations reopened by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow in open letter published in the New York Times last Sunday.
Allen, 78, rejected the molestation claims, saying it was his ex-partner Mia Farrow, who vengefully orchestrated the whole thing, coaching a then 7-year-old Dylan to make the allegations. He also said he's not sure if his son Ronan is his or was fathered by Frank Sinatra.

Bill Nye was once again the "Science Guy" at a debate earlier this week against the founder of the Creation Museum.
Nye debated against Ken Ham at the Creation Museum in Kentucky on the topic of "How did we get here?" from the perspectives of faith and science, according to the Associated Press. Ham argued that the earth is only 6,000 years old, while Nye tried to convince the audience that the scientific community's claim that the earth is "billions and billions" of years is old was a better argument.

Ryan Thomas Anderson was announced on Monday as the winner of the Doritos "Crash the Super Bowl" commercial contest.
While it's unclear how Anderson will spend his windfall, $1 million sure would buy a lot of Doritos.

J. K. Rowling has finally vocalized what fans of the Harry Potter series have been wondering all along -- could Ron Weasley really have made Hermione Granger happy? Even the author is in knots about her choice, saying the heroine probably would have been better off with Harry.
In an interview with Emma Watson, who plays the fuzzy-haired witch in the movie adaptations, Rowling said pairing Ron and Hermione was "a form of wish fulfillment" and admitted the couple probably "would have ended up needing relationship counseling."
Never mind needing counselling after being chased by soul-sucking Dementors and death eaters for several years.
