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", Chalamet said in his statement. "I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the courageous artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve", he concluded.

The actress added that she has donated her wages from "A Rainy Day in NY", which also stars Timothee Chalamet, Jude Law, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez, to Time's Up and that she will continue to donate to the movement.

The move comes just days after Rebecca Hall, one of Timothée's 'A Rainy Day...' co-stars, announced that she wouldn't be working with Allen again, also donating her wages to Time's Up.

The 22-year-old actor was recently asked about his involvement on Allen's latest film, given Dylan Farrow's allegation that Allen - her adopted father - sexually abused her when she was seven years old.

Distancing After Timothée Chalamet and Rebecca Hall vowed to donate their A Rainy Day in New York salaries to the Time's Up initiative the 59-year-old Oscar nominee came to Woody Allen's defense

Recent weeks have seen numerous stars speak out about their regret of having worked with Allen - including Oscar victor Mira Sorvino and Greta Gerwig, who recently directed Chalamet in Lady Bird.

In the wake of the #TimesUp movement, a number of actors have been questioned about their decision to work with Allen. "I swallowed the media's portrayal of your abuse allegations against your father as an outgrowth of a twisted custody battle between Mia Farrow and him, and did not look further into the situation, for which I am terribly sorry". I couldn't have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day. 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. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry. I have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this.

In a statement on his Instagram page, Chalamet said he would donate the money to the Time's Up movement against sexual harassment, The LGBT Center in NY and sexual violence charity RAINN. In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened.
