Colin Firth Joins List of Stars Who Won't Work With Woody Allen Again
The Oscar winner, who starred in Allen's 2013 film "Magic in the Moonlight" with Emma Stone, told The Guardian that in light of sexual abuse allegations from Allen's daughter Dylan Farrow, "I wouldn't work with him again."
Farrow has alleged that Allen, her adoptive father, sexually abused her when she was 7 years old. Allen has repeatedly denied the charges.
Several actresses, including Rebecca Hall, Mira Sorvino (who won an Oscar for her role in Allen's "Mighty Aphrodite"), Rachel Brosnahan, Ellen Page, and Greta Gerwig, have recently issued statements saying they now regret working with Allen and that they believe Dylan Farrow.
There have been fewer actors who have shared the same sentiment, although among the first to express his regrets last year was Griffin Newman, who is in Allen's upcoming film "A Rainy day in New York."
Earlier this month, "Numbers" star David Krumholtz issued a statement saying, "I deeply regret working with Woody Allen on 'Wonder Wheel.' It's one of my most heartbreaking mistakes. We can no longer let these men represent us in entertainment, politics, or any other realm. They are beneath real men."
A few days ago, "Call Me By Your Name" star Timothée Chalamet announced via Instagram that he will be donating his salary from "A Rainy Day in New York" to three charities: TIME'S UP, The LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN (The Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network).
