Colin Firth announces he won't work with Woody Allen again

On the same day, Firth released a public statement via the Guardian and announced he won't work with Woody Allen again.

The day after Dylan Farrow's first television interview aired recounting her alleged abuse at the hands of her father Woody Allen, Midnight in Paris star Marion Cotillard has said that her experience working with Allen was "odd" and she would question working with him again.

Allen had in 2014 written in The New York Times to deny longstanding claims that he molested Dylan when she was a young girl in 1992.

Woody, the 82 year old director has issued a statement, denying all the allegations. But that clause, according to two attorneys who reviewed it at HuffPost's request, does nothing to prevent Chalamet from speaking publicly about accusations against Allen and from Chalamet offering a word of support to Farrow. They both did so for many months and independently concluded that no molestation had ever taken place. She argues: "What I don't understand is how is this insane story of me being brainwashed and coached more believable than what I'm saying about being sexually assaulted by my father".

Cotillard also mentioned that she knew little about Allen's personal life including the fact that he married one of his adopted daughters.

Ellen Page: In a Facebook post from November, the actress said that working with Allen on the 2012 movie "To Rome With Love" was "the biggest regret of my career". "As a mother and a woman, this breaks my heart for you", she wrote. "Here's the thing: Outside of a court of law, we do know what happened in the attic on that day". "This kind of abuse can not be allowed to continue".

"It seems to have worked - and, sadly, I'm sure Dylan truly believes what she says,"his statement read". I'm a real person, and I've been struggling, coping on my good days, with the aftershocks of being sexually assaulted as a small child.

In her interview with CBS News on Thursday, Farrow called on actors to "acknowledge their complicity" in perpetuating Hollywood's "culture of silence". The Tick star Newman, who also appeared in A Rainy Day in NY, announced via Twitter that he donated his salary from the film to RAINN.

Her co-star, Timothee Chalamet, did the same.

Farrow has previously questioned why the "Me Too" movement hasn't ensnarled Allen. He said he would donate his salary to three charities, including Time's Up.

Aside from Krumholtz and Griffin, men have remained largely silent on Allen-much like they remained silent at the Globes.

A two-time alumna of Allen films, Hall caught one of her first big breaks in Allen's 2008 continental romp Vicky Cristina Barcelona and recently starred in A Rainy Day in NY.
