In a bold and much-appreciated move, actor Timothée Chalamet will donate his paycheck from the upcoming Woody Allen movie A Rainy Day in New York
Woody Allen is in the news yet again. This time, it’s not his fading illustrious career that is the topic of interest. It’s something he did almost over two and a half decades ago that has come back to haunt him.
In 1992, Woody Allen was accused of molesting his then adopted daughter Dylan Farrow. Following a shocking acquittal, but losing custody of his children in the process, the scandal got shelved and almost forgotten with the passage of time, only occasionally popping up in TV and news shows.
In the post-Weinstein exposé era, a lot of old skeletons are being dug up. Hollywood legends and idols are being held accountable for their past wrongdoings, which many believe to be long overdue. Timothée Chalamet is the latest to stand in solidarity and join the Time’s Up movement. The BAFTA-nominated star of the movie Call Me By Your Name, recently posted on his Instagram stating he intends not to profit from an association with Allen. He wrote, “I am learning that a good role isn’t the only criteria for accepting a job.” Further adding, that it “has become much clearer to me in the past few months, having witnessed the birth of a powerful movement intent on ending injustice, inequality, and above all, silence.”
Chalamet is donating his paycheck from A Rainy Day in New York to Time’s Up; the LGBT Center in New York; and the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN). He also wrote “I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.”
