Timothée Chalamet will donate his ‘entire salary’ from his role in an upcoming Woody Allen film.

The 22-year-old actor stars in Allen’s new film A Rainy Day In New York. He stars alongside Jude Law, Selena Gomez, Elle Fanning and Rebecca Hall.

But last week, Hall announced she was donating her salary to Time’s Up – a movement against sexual harassment in Hollywood.

This is in response to longstanding claims Woody Allen allegedly sexually assaulted his daughter Dylan Farrow when she was seven years old. Judges never prosecuted the director and Allen consistently denies all claims.

Timothée Chalamet: ‘I don’t want to profit from my work on the film’

Following public backlash, Timothée Chalamet took to Instagram to release an official statement.

He said: ‘I have, to this point, chosen projects from the perspective of a young actor trying to walk in the footsteps of more seasoned actors I admire.

‘But I am learning that a good role isn’t the only criteria for accepting a job —that has become much clearer to me in the past 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.

‘But what I can say is this: I don’t want to profit from my work on the film. 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.

‘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,’ he said.

Chalamet joins fellow actor Griffin Newman in the upcoming film, who also donated his salary to RAINN.

Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig also recently admitted she regrets working with Allen in To Rome With Love.
