Timothee Chalamet Donates ‘Rainy Day in New York’ Salary to #TIMESUP, LGBT Charities

  Timothee Chalamet Donates ‘Rainy Day in New York’ Salary to #TIMESUP, LGBT Charities "I don't want to profit from my work on the [Woody Allen] film," actor says"I am learning that a good role isn't the only criteria for accepting a job," Chalamet said. "That has become much clearer to me in the last few months, having witnessed the birth movement intent on ending injustice, inequality and above all, silence.

Actress Rebecca Hall , who appears in Woody Allen ‘s next film A Rainy Day in New York, announced she would donate her salary from that movie to the Time ’ s Up legal defense fund . The actress, who also appeared in the director’s 2008 film Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Rebecca Hall Donates Salary From New Woody Allen Film to Time ' s Up . Actress Rebecca Hall , who appears in Woody Allen 's next film A Rainy Day in New York, announced she would donate her salary from that movie to the Time ' s Up legal defense fund .

Less than a week after Timothee Chalamet came under fire on social media for wearing a Time's Up pin after working on an upcoming Woody Allen movie, his co-star in the movie, Rebecca Hall, has said she will donate her wages on the film to the anti-harassment initiative.

"It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to @timesup," Hall wrote in an Instagram post on Friday. "I’ve also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere."

Hall has a small role in Allen's upcoming film A Rainy Day in New York, also starring Chalamet, Jude Law and Elle Fanning. Allen's daughter with Mia Farrow, Dylan Farrow, has accused him of sexually abusing her as a child.

The Emoji Movie is the first film publicly screened by Saudi Arabia in 35 years

  The Emoji Movie is the first film publicly screened by Saudi Arabia in 35 years To celebrate the lifting of a 35-year-old ban on cinemas, Saudi Arabia selected one of the most critically despised films of 2017 for its first public screening. The Emoji Movie screened in a makeshift theater in the Islamic Kingdom on Sunday evening, according to Reuters, while plans get underway to install permanent movie theaters as early as spring. The government is for now approving popular animated children’s fare, but hopes to “open 300 cinemas with 2,000 screens by 2030” as a robust economic driver. (Films will remain censored in accordance with the country’s “moral values.”) Under pressure from conservative Islamists, Saudi Arabia formally banned movie theaters in the early 1980s, forcing residents to travel elsewhere for cinematic experiences. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has led various reforms, including lifting the ban, to ease some of the economic and cultural restrictions placed upon the country. Despite its star-studded cast, The Emoji Movie scored a paltry 9 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, and the critical aggregation site Metacritic named it the “official worst movie of 2017.” In his EW review, Darren Franich gave the movie and ‘F’ grade and likened the viewing experience to “staring into an existential abyss.” Nonetheless, per Reuters, residents of Saudi Arabia are excited to see The Emoji Movie and whatever comes next. “I want to see everything because it is something new for Saudi,” 30-year-old Ibtisam Abu Talib told Reuters. “I hope everything is available: action, romance, children’s films, comedy. Everything, God willing.

She said she agreed to appear in the film seven months before allegations of sexual misconduct involving Harvey Weinstein first broke, which opened the floodgate to more assault and abuse stories being shared in the media. Hall said that she has always felt "grateful" to Allen for giving her "one of my first significant roles in film" in Vicky Christina Barcelona.

In the weeks after the Weinstein allegations, Hall said she re-read Farrow's allegations and regretted appearing in the film. "I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed," she wrote. "I regret this decision and wouldn’t make the same one today."

Hall's decision is only the latest in a series of actors who have donated their salaries on films involving accused abusers to charities supporting abuse victims and women. In October A Rainy Day in New York actor Griffin Newman donated his salary on the film to RAINN, the Rape, Abuse, and Incenst National Network. That same month director Kevin Smith donated his residuals on movies backed by Harvey Weinstein to the nonprofit Women in Film, which advocates for women in entertainment.

Alec Baldwin Defends Woody Allen Amid Ongoing Controversy: 'It’s Unfair and Sad to Me'

  Alec Baldwin Defends Woody Allen Amid Ongoing Controversy: 'It’s Unfair and Sad to Me' Alec Baldwin is defending Woody Allen amid the ongoing controversy surrounding the famed director. Baldwin, 59, called criticism of Allen over longstanding sexual abuse allegations “unfair and sad.” “Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose,” he tweeted on Tuesday. “But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career.” Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed.

I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career.— ABFoundation (@ABFalecbaldwin) January 16, 2018 In 2014, Dylan Farrow – who is one of the star’s three children with ex Mia Farrow — publicly claimed that Allen molested her as a child. Allen has long denied the allegations, which first surfaced during his explosive 1992 split from Mia. The director was not charged, though a Connecticut prosecutor said there was probable cause for a criminal case. His son Ronan Farrow also penned an explosive column for the Hollywood Reporter, which addressed the sexual abuse claims and condemned the media for not asking Allen about the allegations and stars for working with him. In response, Allen told The Guardian, “I have no interest in all of that. I find that all tabloid stupidity.

Rebecca Hall is the latest actress to renounce working with Woody Allen . She’s donating her salary from his next movie to Time ’ s Up .

Read Hall's full statement below.

The day after the Weinstein accusation broke in full force I was shooting a day of work on Woody Allen’s latest movie in New York. I couldn’t have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day. When asked to do so, some seven months ago, I quickly said yes. He gave me one of my first significant roles in film for which I have always been grateful, it was one day in my hometown - easy. I have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this. In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened. After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow’s statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones - I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry. I regret this decision and wouldn’t make the same one today. It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to @timesup. I’ve also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere. #timesup
