Woody Allen accused of sexual abuse by daughter: Denies claim

Hall and the actor Timothee Chalamet, who appear in Allen's upcoming movie 'A Rainy Day in NY, ' have announced that they will donate their salaries from the film to charities including the Time's Up movement.

In her interview with King, Farrow speaks further about Allen's alleged behavior towards her when she was a child.

Actor Colin Firth joined a growing list of A-list celebrities on Thursday when he told The Guardian he would no longer be willing to work with scandal-plagued director Woody Allen.

He said: 'Though the Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn't make it any more true today than it was in the past'.

A CT state prosecutor at the time had found probable cause to charge Allen but thought Farrow too fragile to face a celebrity trial. "They both did so many months and independently concluded that no molestation had ever taken place".

He added: "Instead, they found it likely a vulnerable child had been coached to tell the story by her angry mother during a contentious breakup". Dylan's older brother Moses has said he witnessed their mother relentlessly coaching her, trying to drum into her that her father was a risky sexual predator. "It seems to have worked - and, sadly, I'm sure Dylan truly believes what she says".

Rebecca Hall, who appeared in Allen's new film A Rainy Day in NY, said that she regretted her decision of working with the American filmmaker, and that "she wouldn't make the same one today". "I learned conclusively that I can not put my career over my morals again", he added.

"I admire some of his work, but we had no connection on set", said Cotillard. "I made an terrible mistake".

Now a 32-year-old married mother of a young girl, Farrow said in retrospect she wished the case had gone to trial. "I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again".

Dylan Farrow has given her first television interview about her claims she was molested by her adoptive father Woody Allen, insisting she is "telling the truth". "I am so sorry, Dylan! As a mother and a woman, this breaks my heart for you", she wrote.

"I loved my father". It's not the most verbose denunciation in the world, but it's an important one nonetheless: Each prominent actor or filmmaker who cuts ties with Allen is one less cinematic collaborator he can turn to, one more industry door slammed shut and perhaps most importantly, one more well-known male actor using his ample platform to amplify a message now resonating throughout Hollywood and beyond: Time's up.
