Colin Firth says he'll never work with Woody Allen again


Actor Colin Firth joined a growing list of A-list celebrities on Thursday when he told The Guardian he would no longer be willing to work with scandal-plagued director Woody Allen.

Firth also starred in the 2014 Allen film, Magic in the Moonlight.

Griffin Newman: Newman tweeted in October that although he only has one scene in Allen's film, "A Rainy Day in NY", he "deeply" regrets having worked with the director and donated his salary from the project to the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network, or RAINN.

"He was always touching me, cuddling me and, if I ever said, you know, like I want to go off by myself, he wouldn't let me".

Firth's comments follow a new TV interview by Dylan Farrow in which she spoke about her allegations against Allen.

Woody Allen's adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow, said her father sexually abused her when she was a child. In an open letter published in the New York Times in 2014, she described in detail how Allen allegedly assaulted her, and in late 2017 she penned an article for the Los Angeles Times calling out Hollywood for passing over Allen while taking down other men accused of sexual misconduct.

"But even though the Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity afforded by the Time's Up movement to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn't make it any more true today than it was in the past". As a "mother and a woman", she wrote that the story of Farrow broke "her heart". Dylan Farrow first pointed to her shoulder.

The report about Selena's generosity comes just a day after her mum Mandy Teefey told a user on Instagram that she advised her not to participate in the film. A CT state prosecutor at the time found probable cause to charge Allen, but thought Dylan Farrow too fragile to face a celebrity trial.

Now, suddenly, when it is the popular thing to do, they are outraged and determined to demand justice.

Farrow has previously questioned why the "Me Too" movement hasn't ensnarled Allen.

Farrow's story is another important narrative that is being added to the overall discussion of industry abuse, and forcing Hollywood to take a hard look at itself and change.

Timothée Chalamet: The "Call Me by Your Name" star also worked on "A Rainy Day in New York" and like Hall, he pledged his salary from the movie to charities that combat sexual abuse and harassment.

Rachel Brosnahan: Though she worked with Allen on the Amazon series "Crisis in Six Scenes", the actress said that she has "struggled" with her decision to do it.

In an email to HuffPost, Chalamet's representatives claimed that a clause in the standard SAG agreement (which is shown below) that was attached to Chalamet's contract prevents him from speaking publicly. 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.
