A California woman claims she had an eight-year affair with actor-director Woody Allen that began when she was 16 and he was 41, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Christina Engelhardt told the magazine in an interview published Monday that the affair began in October 1976 after the two met at Elaine’s, a New York City restaurant.
Engelhardt said Allen did not make the first move. She wrote her telephone number on a napkin, noting that “Since you’ve signed enough autographs, here’s mine.”
Engelhardt, 59, told the Reporter that while Allen never asked her age, she told the actor she was still in high school in New Jersey and was pursuing a modeling career in Manhattan.
Within weeks, she said, the pair had become physically intimate at his Manhattan apartment. The legal age for sexual consent in New York is 17, and Engelhardt did not turn 17 until Dec, 4, 1976.
""What made me speak is I thought I could provide a perspective. I'm not attacking Woody," Engelhardt told the Reporter. "This is not 'bring down this man.' I'm talking about my love story. This made me who I am. I have no regrets."
Four years into their affair, Engelhardt said, Allen introduced her to his girlfriend, Mia Farrow. Engelhardt said she was taken aback, believing she was Allen’s girlfriend.
"I felt sick. I didn't want to be there at all, and yet I couldn't find the courage to get up and leave,” Engelhardt wrote in an unpublished manuscript she shared with the magazine. “To leave would mean an end to all of this.”
Representatives for Allen, 83, and Farrow, 73, have not commented on Engelhardt’s claims, E!News reported.
Allen has been accused of sexual assault and abuse by his daughter, Dylan Farrow, E!News reported. Allen has denied all allegations and has never been charged.
Allen’s current wife, Soon-Yi Previn, is the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow.

Rupert Grint, who played the nervous redhead in the “Harry Potter” movie series, admitted in an interview he did not know how much money he has in the bank, the Daily Mail reported.
However, Grint, 30, is worth more than $35 million and said he is content knowing he can live a “comfortable” life without checking his financial statements, the newspaper reported.
Grint made his comments during an interview with the Radio Times, saying that “I actually don't know how much I have. I couldn't even really guess.”
Grint, one of the three main characters in the “Harry Potter” wizard movies adapted from J.K. Rowling’s books, vaulted to fame with Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson when the 2001 movie, “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” was released.
Having that much money “doesn’t motivate me too much,” Grint told the Radio Times. “'I'm glad it's there but I'm not really that focused on it.”
Radcliffe has an estimated net worth of more than $109 million and Watson has a net worth of more than $71 million, the Daily Mail reported.

"Aquaman" star Jason Momoa isn't afraid to boogie down.
The self-described Saturday Night Live "super-nerd" delighted fans on the comedy show this week, kicking off his hosting gig with a hilarious musical moment.
After a pink-clad Momoa introduced himself ("I am so muscular to be hosting 'Saturday Night Huge'") and wowed a lovestruck Aidy Bryant by opening a pickle jar, cast members Leslie Jones, Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd tried to convince him that Parliament's 1978 hit "Aqua Boogie" would make a great "Aquaman" theme song.
Although Momoa seemed unconvinced, that didn't stop him from singing the tune and showing off some dance moves.
A song from Disney's "The Little Mermaid" is causing big controversy for a Princeton University a cappella group.
According to The New York Times, the Princeton Tigertones said they will temporarily stop performing "Kiss the Girl" after critics questioned the group's practice of bringing a man and woman from the audience onstage and encouraging them to kiss when the song ends.
"Lyrics such as, 'It’s possible she wants you too/There’s one way to ask her/It don’t take a word, not a single word/Go on and kiss the girl, kiss the girl,' and 'she won’t say a word/Until you kiss that girl,' unambiguously encourage men to make physical advances on women without obtaining their clear consent," Princeton sophomore Noa Wollstein wrote in an op-ed for The Daily Princetonian last month.
Wollstein continued: "The fervor with which the all-male Tones press the man to kiss the female subject eerily amplifies the song’s assertions of toxic masculinity. The absence of opportunity for the chosen woman to protest at a Tigertones show mimics the song’s acceptance of the woman’s lack of consent to being kissed."
Tigertones President Wesley Brown responded with a letter to the editor in Friday's Princetonian.
"Because of these concerns, we are removing 'Kiss the Girl' from our active repertoire until we can arrive at a way to perform it that is comfortable and enjoyable for every member of our audience," Brown wrote.
The complaints quickly sparked backlash on social media. Here's what some people were saying:

A classic holiday special has some viewers seeing red this year.
According to the Washington Post, critics of the 1964 movie "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" are taking to social media to blast the film, claiming it promotes bullying and bigotry.
The controversy appeared to take flight Wednesday after HuffPost tweeted a video titled "Rudolph the Marginalized Reindeer." The post highlighted what some believe are "problematic" scenes from the movie.
"Former fans are pointing out Rudolph's father verbally abuses him," the video says, later adding that "Clarice's dad is a bigot."

Some Twitter users made similar observations.
"It's that time of year to really consider the meaning of Rudolph and how in the culture it's okay to bully someone until the thing that makes them strange is useful to everyone else. Always a horrible story," @gadlaw6 wrote.
"Santa let them bully Rudolph and joined in the shaming until his freak disability became useful," @goggleboi tweeted.
But fans fired back, arguing that Rudolph's triumph over adversity sends a positive message.
"The true message of Rudolph isn't that weirdness is bad until it can be exploited," podcaster Joshua D. Scroggin tweeted. "It's that everyone has value, and you shouldn't be mean to someone just because they're different. It's a lesson for the bullies, not the bullied."
Even public figures from opposite sides of the political spectrum – Donald Trump Jr. and Whoopi Goldberg – seemed to support Rudolph.
"Rudolph's the hero!" Goldberg said Thursday. "What's the problem?!"
