Alec Baldwin Describes Renunciation Of Woody Allen As 'Unfair And Sad'

Allen has never been charged with a crime in relation to his adopted daughter's claims, which have been supported by her mother, Woody's ex Mia Farrow, and her brother, newsman Ronan Farrow. Over the weekend, Chalamet's "Rainy Day" co-star Rebecca Hall wrote on Instagram that she was "profoundly sorry" and "regrets" her decision to work with the filmmaker. Allen has repeatedly denied those allegations.

"Call Me by Your Name" star Timothee Chalamet, who has a leading role in Allen's upcoming film "A Rainy Day in New York", has announced he would be donating his full salary from the film to Time's Up, LGBT Center in NY and anti-sexual assault organization RAINN.


Now, with the Me Too and Time Up movements taking over Hollywood, it's become much, much more hard to get away with acting in a Woody Allen film.

"The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt has some objective".


The interview, which airs on CBS on Thursday and is Farrow's first on television according to the United States broadcaster, comes after she used a newspaper article to question why Allen has been spared by the "revolution" that ended Harvey Weinstein.

Baldwin, who appeared in three of Allen's films, said on Twitter that the renunciation of the director and his work was "unfair and sad to me". "And that they are enough to change things", Farrow tells King during a wide-ranging interview conducted Monday at her home in Bridgewater, Conn. Baldwin then praised the director and said that it was one of the privileges of his career to have worked with Allen. "Is it possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent?" In 2014, Farrow penned a letter to the New York Times, detailing her director father's alleged abuse. This was always true as a brother who trusted her, and - even at five years old - was troubled by our father's odd behaviour around her: "climbing into her bed in the middle of the night, forcing her to suck his thumb - behaviour that had prompted him to enter into therapy focused on his inappropriate conduct with children prior to the allegations".


Chalamet's and Hall's statements come one month after Farrow questioned in an opinion piece in the Los Angeles Times why Allen had been spared similar scrutiny of his past actions. "I think so", Baldwin later tweeted. "On behalf of the victims, as well", he added.
