“Call Me By Your Name” star Timothée Chalamet has announced that he will be donating his entire salary from his upcoming Woody Allen film “A Rainy Day in New York” to three charities.
The cast of “A Rainy Day in New York” have been called out for their involvement in the film in light of Dylan Farrow’s, Allen and Mia Farrow’s adopted daughter, allegations that Allen sexually abused her as a child.
Chalamet, 22, posted on Instagram that he will be donating his wages from the Allen film to the LGBT Center in New York, Time’s Up, which provides legal support to victims of workplace sexual harassment, and RAINN.
“I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer,” Chalamet wrote in the post. “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 [Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network]. 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.”
Rebecca Hall, who also stars in the film, has also donated her salary to Time’s Up as well as fellow co-star Griffin Newman, who donated his salary to RAINN. The film’s other cast members including Selena Gomez, Jude Law, Liev Schreiber and Elle Fanning, have remained silent on the controversy.
