Colin Firth Will Never Work With Woody Allen Again

Colin Firth Will Never Work With Woody Allen Again

The list of actors that have vowed not to work with Woody Allen again continues to grow.

The Academy Award-winning actor confirmed his decision in a statement to The Guardian on Thursday (January 19).

In her first TV interview, Farrow told CBS This Morning: "Why shouldn't I want to bring him down?"

The pair worked together in Woody's film Magic in the Moonlight (13), a year before the director's adopted daughter Dylan Farrow published an open letter alleging him of molesting her in an attic. Actor Timothee Chalamet announced on Instagram that he was donating his salary from his role in Allen's most recent film, A Rainy Day in NY, to charities that fight sexual abuse and harassment.

A growing number of actors are distancing themselves from Woody Allen and his next film, heightening questions about the future of the prolific 82-year-old filmmaker in a Hollywood newly sensitive to allegations of sexual misconduct.

Farrow says it is now time for the world to finally listen to the claims she has stood by for more than two decades.

Speaking to Gayle King on CBS, Dylan, 32, insisted that her allegations are entirely honest. Farrow first went public with her account in 2014, but only now, in the midst of the #MeToo movement, have Allen's film industry colleagues begun to abandon him.

He said: 'Though the Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn't make it any more true today than it was in the past'. Dylan penned an op-ed in The Los Angeles Times that called out actors who have worked with Allen and not denounced him over her claims.

He said Mia, Dylan's adoptive mother, was "relentlessly coaching" her - a claim Farrow rejected.

"I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the courageous artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve", he said. Why shouldn't I be hurt? Sadly, I'm sure Dylan truly believes what she says'. The star of Professor Marston and the Wonder Women wrote in an Instagram post that she was on the set of the Allen film in October the day the story about Harvey Weinstein's serial predation broke, which led her to consider her decision to work with Allen.

"I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's wellbeing". It shouldn't have to be that a small army has to come forward against one person to be credible. Hall and Chalamet, who have parts in Allen's next film, A Rainy Day in NY, which was scheduled to be released this year, said they would donate their salaries to charities.
