Chloe Sevigny recently said that she "probably" won't work with director Woody Allen again. The American Horror Story star appeared in Allen's 2004 film, Melinda and Melinda.

Sevigny did not mention any negative experience she had with Allen, but she admitted that she is no longer interested to work with the disgraced director.

Several other actors have also expressed their disappointment towards Allen and some have even vowed to donate their salary from starring in his films.

"I have my own turmoil that I'm grappling with over that decision. Would I work with him again? Probably not," said Sevigny.

Actors' Donations

Timothée Chalamet recently said that he will be donating his entire salary from Allen's A Rainy Day In New York movie to three charities: Time's Up, the LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN. Chalamet's co-star, Rebecca Hall, will also be donating her salary to her chosen charity.

Allen was accused of sexual abuse by his daughter, Dylan Farrow. The 32-year-old revealed that Allen molested her in their attic when she was just 7 years old. Dylan told her mom, Mia Farrow, about what her dad did to her, and Mia believed her.

On Thursday, Dylan criticized Hollywood for not taking her story seriously. She also accused Allen's supporters, as well as the media, of turning a blind eye on the issue. Dylan could not believe that some actors and actresses continue to work with Allen despite his sexual misconduct.

Woody Allen Denies Dylan Farrow's Allegations

Allen has since denied all of Dylan's accusations. He also said that his ex-wife, Mia, was the one who convinced Dylan to lie about the situation.

"When this claim was first made more than 25 years ago, it was thoroughly investigated by both the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital and New York State Child Welfare. They both did so for many months and independently concluded that no molestation had ever taken place. Instead, they found it likely a vulnerable child had been coached to tell the story by her angry mother during a contentious breakup," said Allen.

Sevigny was at the Sundance Film Festival on Friday to promote her film, Lizzie, which is about Lizzie Borden. The woman was accused of murdering her father and stepmother in 1892. Sevigny previously said that she is fascinated with Borden's life, which is why she decided to star in the film. She also serves as executive producer of Lizzie.
