Selena Gomez's Mom Speaks Out About Her Daughter's Decision to Work with Woody Allen

Selena Gomez‘s mom Mandy Teefey is weighing in on her daughter working with Woody Allen.

This week, Selena‘s co-star in her Woody Allen movie, Timothee Chalamet, said he’s donating his salary from A Rainy Day in New York to Time’s Up, The LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN due to allegations against him that date back years.

A fan commented on one of Mandy‘s Instagram posts, asking Mandy to “make” Selena write an apology for working on an Allen film.

“Sorry, no one can make Selena do anything she doesn’t want to. I had a long talk with her about not working with him and it didn’t click. Her team are amazing people. There is no fall person here. No one controls her. She makes all her own decisions. No matter how hard you try to advise. It falls on deaf ears,” Mandy commented. You can see a screenshot below.

In addition, Mandy recently spoke out with her opinion of Selena and Justin Bieber‘s reunion.

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.

Rebecca Hall Donates Salary From Woody Allen Film

Rebecca Hall is taking a stand and making a major donation to the Time’s Up movement.

The 35-year-old actress recently completed work on a Woody Allen film but after reading Dylan Farrow‘s statements about the director, she is donating her salary from the movie.

Rebecca took to her Instagram to speak out about her decision.

“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,” Rebecca wrote.

She added, “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.”

Greta Gerwig on Woody Allen: 'I Will Not Work for Him Again'

Greta Gerwig is speaking out about working with Woody Allen on a movie that came out over five years ago.

The 34-year-old actress and Lady Bird director has been a supporter of the #TimesUp movement, so people have questioned why she worked with Allen, someone who has been accused of sexual assault.

Greta has been asked about working with Woody several times recently and she just gave an answer to the New York Times.

“I would like to speak specifically to the Woody Allen question, which I have been asked about a couple of times recently, as I worked for him on a film that came out in 2012,” Greta said. “It is something that I take very seriously and have been thinking deeply about, and it has taken me time to gather my thoughts and say what I mean to say.”

“I can only speak for myself and what I’ve come to is this: If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film. I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again,” she added. “Dylan Farrow‘s two different pieces made me realize that I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realization. I grew up on his movies, and they have informed me as an artist, and I cannot change that fact now, but I can make different decisions moving forward.”

Marina & The Diamonds Calls Out Kate Winslet & Other Actors for Still Working With Woody Allen

Marina Diamandis, otherwise known as Marina & The Diamonds, isn’t sure why actors like Kate Winslet are still working with Woody Allen, despite the molestation allegations made against him years ago by his adoptive daughter, Dylan Fallow.

“How come Woody Allen goes free? I don’t understand how any sane or moral person can still work with him + feel OK about that,” the 32-year-old singer-songwriter wrote, quote-tweeting Rose McGowan on Friday (December 8).

“I believe Dylan Farrow. Always have, always will,” she then wrote.

“Can you imagine accepting a job where your boss has child sexual abuse allegations against him AND he married his adopted daughter, but you, as a grown, financially secure human just go: ‘I don’t know anything, really, and whether any of it is true or false’,” she added.

The last part of Marina‘s tweet is a direct quote from Kate, who was asked about working with Woody on Wonder Wheel.
