Colin Firth responds to Woody Allen backlash

While Allen has consistently denied her claims, Dylan has never given up in her bid to prove the director's alleged guilt, and recently started to take aim at actors who have worked with her estranged father. Hall and Chalamet, who have parts in in Allen's next film, A Rainy Day in NY, which was scheduled to be released this year, said they would donate their salaries to charities. "I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again".

Allen pointed out that Dylan's older brother Moses has said he witnessed Mia Farrow "relentlessly coaching" the girl to believe "her father was a unsafe sexual predator'".

This image released by CBS shows Dylan Farrow, left, adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, during an interview airing Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018, on "CBS This Morning". In an open letter published on the New York Times blog, Farrow maintained that she had been scarred by her assault and blamed Hollywood for "turning a blind eye".

Although Allen claimed that everything said against him was false, many artists have backed Farrow.

When Dylan Farrow first made allegations of sexual abuse against her stepfather, Woody Allen, she was largely ignored.

She added: "Every step of the way, my mother has only encouraged me to tell the truth ..." By donating the money he is appeasing members who believe that Allen abused Farrow, but by not criticizing him explicitly he is avoiding the ire of members who don't believe the accusations against Allen, including actor Alec Baldwin, who who have denounced Allen as "unfair and sad".

"When this claim was first made more than 25 years ago, it was thoroughly investigated by both the Child Sexual Abuse Clinic of the Yale-New Haven Hospital and New York State Child Welfare". As a "mother and a woman", she wrote that the story of Farrow broke "her heart".

Six years after the film's premiered, Cotillard shared her uncanny experience with the director and screenwriter on the movie set and how she would do a double take if her agent presented her with a potential project from him.

The director is also facing a backlash from industry folk in Hollywood. 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. "I'm not able to answer the question directly because of contractual obligations".

Further contradicting the assessment of Chalamet's representatives is the fact that one of Chalamet's co-stars in Allen's latest film did speak out in support of Dylan Farrow. In 2013, Vanity Fair interviewed her about everything she went through. When Mia Farrow asked why she didn't repeat what she had said earlier, "I told her that I was embarrassed".

His A Rainy Day in NY co-star Hall did the same, donating her earnings to Time's Up.
