    Lena Dunham has made her feelings toward Woody Allen very clear.

    The Girls star stopped by Marc Maron's WTF podcast on Monday to further address the ongoing allegations between the famous director and his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow.

    "In the latest Woody Allen debate, I'm decidedly pro-Dylan Farrow and decidedly disgusting with Woody Allen's behavior," she said.

    "But for me, when people go through his work and comb through it for references to child molestation, that's not the f--king point."

    Dunham hasn't been shy about voicing her opinions on the matter via Twitter or in countless interviews.

    The actress first spoke on the topic following Dylan's open letter in the New York Times in February, where she alleged that Woody had sexually abused her.

    Woody responded with his own op-ed saying that he "did not molest Dylan."

    However, Dunham says that she is "not comfortable living in a world where art is part of how we convict people of crimes."

    She added, "I'm not gonna indict the work. I think that you can decide that you don't want to support the work of somebody who has molested a child. That's a completely appropriate choice.

    "But going through it and saying, 'Look, he's told us in 57 ways that he rapes kids.' That's not the thing. The thing is to look at the actual evidence that exists in the world, which I think strongly suggests that Woody Allen is in the wrong."

    Duham then explained how she's "nauseated" with the Blue Jasmine director and that "people who really believe Woody Allen is guilty have not felt comfortable saying that because they're so afraid to lose their connection to his work."
