Woody's Hollywood Career In Question. After Greta Gerwig, Rebecca Hall, Ellen Page, and David Krumholtz, Timothee Chalamet Donates Salary From Upcoming Woody Allen Movie To "Time's Up."

Just last week Greta Gerwig released a statement regarding her past work with Woody Allen in the film “To Rome With Love,” saying she deeply regretted working with the 82-year-old director. Why? Well, Allen has been scuffled in years of controversy involving Dylan Farrow, his longtime partner Mia’s daughter, who has, countless times, alleged that Allen molested her for years. Now that the #MeToo movement is in full-surge, it seems like Allen’s past has resurfaced as a hot-button issue. It’s not just Gerwig.  Other actors that have worked with the iconic director, including Ellen Page, Griffin Newman, and David Krumholtz, have expressed regret in working with him.
Rebecca Hall then lent her voice to the Mia Farrow-backed witch hunt that list. The actress, in a statement released on Instagram, all but shunned her former director, saying she “deeply regrets” signing on for a role in his next movie “A Rainy Day in New York.” What sparked the outrage? Reading Farrow’s latest statement this past week. Though to be fair, they’re the same claims Farrow has been making for the last decade. But people are finally listening. Hall said she was ready to donate her salary from the film to the Time’s Up legal defense fund.

Now Timothee Chalamet, who stars is Woody Allen's next movie, has decided to donate his salary to Time's Up. “I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer,” Timothy Chalamet said on Instagram Monday evening. “What I can say is this: I don’t want to profit from my work on the film, and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary to three charities: TIME’S UP, the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN.”
What does this ever-growing list of actors and actresses condemning Allen mean for his future in moviemaking? We’re not sure yet, but one suspects that if more stars come out to condemn him then he might be hounded out of moviemaking for good, at least in Hollywood. American actors are surely going to think twice about working with him now and it will be really interesting to see what happens with the announcement of Allen’s next film if it happens because the writer/director typically announces and shoots a new film about every 12-16 months.
There would surely be European financiers ready to back his next projects, but a total ousting from Tinstletown would be a significant event. Following the allegations of child abuse, Allen’s much-publicized split with Mia Farrow back in the 1990’s ended in hostility, most of which has been unresolved almost two decades later. Ronan’s brother Moses has vehemently defended his dad over the years saying “My mother [Mia Farrow] drummed it into me to hate my father for tearing apart the family and sexually molesting my sister, and I hated him for her for years. I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi.” However, Ronan Farrow, a reputable journalist, who helped uncover the Harvey Weinstein scandal for The New Yorker a few months ago (and signed a three-year deal this week with HBO to head up investigative documentaries), stands by his assertions that sexual abuse did happen. It’s a polarizing and infuriating scandal and the noise around it is not about to quell anytime soon.

"Disgusting, bullshit...McCarthyism...people crumbling and turning out of fear...mass public shaming....this is a disgraceful moment. Will Woody get hounded out of moviemaking? I don't know. I hope not. That would honestly crush my heart. I mean, I feel there are European financiers that would fund him. People know that Mia is a brainwasher who abused her kids. But they CAN'T SAY THAT Because that would be BLAMING THE VICTIM. I think we are fucked. The more times Trump does something like "shithole"...all white males pay. You can protest Trump 24 hours a day...you will still pay."
