In an interview with Sunday Today, a preview of which has been released, Mirren talked about how men would often expose themselves in front of her when she was in her twenties.

Woody Allen, the director and four-time Oscar winner known for his comedies rife with neurotic characters, is in the crosshairs of Americas sexual harassment watershed over decades-old claims that he molested his daughter. The 82-year-old New Yorker -- who averages a movie a year, clocking up more than 50 titles total -- is considered a comic genius by fans and envied by fellow filmmakers for wresting freedom from studios, though he is not always adored by critics. For more than 25 years, unproven allegations that he molested his adopted daughter when she was seven -- as well as a relationship with his ex-lovers adopted daughter from a previous marriage -- have colored a career now more lauded in Europe than at home.
