Timothée Chalamet Donates Woody Allen Film Salary To Charities Including Time's Up

The announcements follow actor Griffin Newman's decision to donate his salary from the film to charity.

Actors who worked with director Woody Allen have apologised and donated their earnings to sexual harassment and assault charities.

Timothée Chalamet, the 22-year-old star of Call Me by Your Name, worked on Allen's upcoming film A Rainy Day, but in a statement posted on Instagram, says he is trying to do right in light of what he's learned.

"This year has changed the way I see and feel about so many things; it has been a thrilling and, at times, enlightening education", Chalamet wrote.

Having come under pressure to explain his decision to work with Allen, Chalamet said he was still unable to respond to these questions due to "contractual obligations".

The 22-year-old Call My Be Your Name breakout star announced Tuesday that he would donate his full salary from his work on Allen's latest, romantic drama A Rainy Day in NY, to the Time's Up legal fund, the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN), and the LGBT Center of NY, according to the Daily Mail.

The actor said he wanted "to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the courageous artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve".

Hall, who apologized and said, "I regret this decision (to work with Allen) and wouldn't make the same one today", joins Greta Gerwig, Mira Sorvino, and Ellen Page in speaking out against the director.

Financial support for Allen has not previously waned in part because of the eagerness many stars have for working with a cinematic legend.

The Film's cast include Jude Law, Elle Fanning, Cherry Jones, Selena Gomez, Suki Waterhouse, Diego Luna, Liev Schreiber and Kelly Rohrbach. She said she was donating her salary from the film to Time's Up, the recently formed initiative to combat gender inequality in the entertainment industry.

"I am credible, and I am telling the truth, and I think it's important that people realize that one victim, one accuser, matters", said Farrow in the interview which covers a wide range of topics include the #MeToo and Time's Up movement. Farrow's L.A. Times essay called out actors like Kate Winslet, Blake Lively, and Gerwig for refusing to denounce the filmmaker over her claims. Allen has repeatedly denied Farrow's claim that he sexually assaulted her. "I never personally experienced what has now been described as inappropriate behavior toward young girls", she said.
