Timothée Chalamet Says He’ll Donate His Salary From Woody Allen Film To Time’s Up Movement

Timothée Chalamet recently said that he will be donating his salary from Woody Allen's film A Rainy Day In New York to the Time's Up movement.

The actor also explained why he dodged questions about his decision to work with Allen.

Timothée Chalamet's Generous Donation

On his social media account, Chalamet said that his entire salary from the upcoming movie will be distributed among three charities. Other than Time's Up, the actor's income will benefit the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN.

The Call Me By Your Name star also said that he stayed mum about why he decided to work with Allen due to his "contractual obligations." Chalamet was previously criticized for still teaming up with the director even after Allen was accused of sexual assault.

Dylan Farrow Accuses Woody Allen Of Sexual Abuse

Allen's adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, accused the director of sexually abusing her in the 1990s when she was still a child. Farrow first came forward about her allegations against Allen in 1993. In 2014, she penned an essay about the harrowing experience.

Farrow also recently criticized the members of the Time's Up movement for not taking her story seriously back then.

Allen has denied all the allegations, but in 1993, Farrow's mom, Mia Farrow, was granted full custody of her daughter. Judges found the young girl's story to be credible.

Mira Sorvino Weighs In

Mira Sorvino, however, wrote a letter to Farrow and said that she believes her. Sorvino starred in Allen's 1995 comedy Mighty Aphrodite.

"I never personally experienced what has now been described as inappropriate behavior toward young girls. But this does not excuse my turning a blind eye to your story simply because I wanted desperately for it not to be so," said Sorvino.

Hollywood Exempts The Director

In December, Farrow slammed Hollywood for "exempting" her estranged dad from the storm of sexual assault allegations.

"Why is it that Harvey Weinstein and other accused celebrities have been cast out by Hollywood, while Allen recently secured a multimillion-dollar distribution deal with Amazon, greenlit by former Amazon Studios executive Roy Price before he was suspended over sexual misconduct allegations?" wrote Farrow.

Earlier this month, Greta Gerwig, the director of Lady Bird that Chalamet starred in, said that if she only knew of Allen's misconduct, she would not have worked with him.
