Timothee Chalamet to Donate Salary from Woody Allen Movie

Timothee Chalamet to Donate Salary from Woody Allen Movie

Timothee Chalamet worked with Woody Allen on the upcoming movie A Rainy Day in New York and he just released a statement about working with the director.

Many actors have been called out for working with the filmmaker as he has been accused of sexual assault by his daughter Dylan Farrow.

“This year has changed the way I see and feel about so many things; it has been a thrilling and, at times, enlightening education. I have, to this point, chosen projects from the perspective of a young actor trying to walk in the footsteps of more seasoned actors I admire. But I am learning that a good role isn’t the only criteria for accepting a job —that has become much clearer to me in the past few months, having witnessed the birth of a powerful movement intent on ending injustice, inequality and above all, silence,” Timothee wrote in his statement on Instagram.

“I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer,” he added. “I’m not able to answer the question directly because of contractual obligations. But what I can say is this: I don’t want to profit from my work on the film, and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary to three charities: TIME’S UP, The LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN. I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve.”

Timothee is currently getting Oscar buzz for his work in Call Me By Your Name. He stars alongside Selena Gomez and Elle Fanning in the upcoming Woody Allen film.
