Timothee Chalamet Donates Salary From Woody Allen Film to #TIMESUP, LGBT Charities
Timothee Chalamet is donating his salary from Woody Allen film “A Rainy Day in New York” to a trio charities: #TIMESUP, the LGBT Center in New York and RAINN, an anti-sexual violence organization, the actor said on Instagram on Monday.
“I am learning that a good role isn’t the only criteria for accepting a job,” Chalamet said. “That has become much clearer to me in the last few months, having witnessed the birth of a powerful movement intent on ending injustice, inequality and above all, silence.
“I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer. I’m not able to answer the question directly because of contractual obligations,” he continued. “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.” He then listed them.
Chalamet’s move comes after co-star Rebecca Hall donated her profit from “Rainy Day” to #TIMESUP. “It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to @timesup,” Hall wrote in an Instagram post on Friday.
Co-star Griffin Newman has also announced that he would donate his salary to RAINN.
Allen has been accused of sexual assault by his adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow, and her mother, Mia Farrow. He was investigated but never charged in 1992, when Mia Farrow first made the accusation. Dylan Farrow revived it in an open letter in the New York Times in 2014. Allen has always said the accusation was an invention by Mia Farrow.
