Woman says she had affair with Woody Allen when she was a teen

Model Babi Christina Engelhardt said she had a secret eight-year affair with film director Woody Allen in the 1970s when she was 16 and he was 41. She told the Hollywood Reporter that she gave him her number after seeing him at the famous Elaine's restaurant in New York City. According to the article, she told Allen she was still in high school, and that their relationship became physical before before she turned the legal age of 17. Engelhardt said she chose now to talk about the relationship because she thought she could "provide a perspective," she said. "I'm not attacking Woody ... This is not 'bring down this man.' I'm talking about my love story. This made me who I am. I have no regrets." Allen declined to comment for the story.
