Timothee Chalamet should pay close attention to this statement.
After all, he stumbled quite a bit when responding to a question about acting in a Woody Allen movie. But his costar Rebecca Hall just made a perfect statement — by putting her money where her mouth is!
In an Instagram post on Friday, she explained she initially easily said yes to acting in the upcoming A Rainy Day In New York because Woody had given her one of her first “significant roles” starring opposite Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson in 2008’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
But after “reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow’s statements” she regretted her decision — and decided to give her entire salary to the Time’s Up initiative!
Read her thoughtful, apologetic statement (below)!
The day after the Weinstein accusation broke in full force I was shooting a day of work on Woody Allen’s latest movie in New York. I couldn’t have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day. When asked to do so, some seven months ago, I quickly said yes. 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 have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this. In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened. After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow’s statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones – I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry. I regret this decision and wouldn’t make the same one today. It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to @timesup. I’ve also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere. #timesupA post shared by Rebecca Hall (@rebeccahall) on Jan 12, 2018 at 2:08pm PST
