More importantly, in the time of #MeToo and "Time's Up" movements that seek to offer solidarity with survivors of harassment and abuse and to expose and prosecute predators when applicable, Dylan Farrow, who is now 32, finally has a voice, and she is being believed. When Mia Farrow asked why she didn't repeat what she had said earlier, "I told her that I was embarrassed".
Colin Firth is the latest actor to speak out against filmmaker Woody Allen. This week, Dylan Farrow, his adopted daughter, landed some television interviews on which she renewed allegations that Allen molested her in 1992, when she was seven.
"He's lying and he's been lying for so long", a tearful Farrow insisted.
This undated image released by Frances Silver shows Dylan Farrow, daughter of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow. I am ashamed I did this.
"He was always touching me, cuddling me and if I ever said, you know, like I want to go off by myself, he wouldn't let me", she said. "My first impulse was that I had done something wrong". "I made an bad mistake". Maybe I would dig more.
"I don't want to profit from my work on the film", Chalamet added.
Rachel Brosnahan: Though she worked with Allen on the Amazon series "Crisis in Six Scenes", the actress said that she has "struggled" with her decision to do it.
"With so much silence being broken, by so many fearless people against so many high profile people, I felt it was important to add my story to theirs because it's something that I've struggled with for a long time". But that clause, according to two attorneys who reviewed it at HuffPost's request, does nothing to prevent Chalamet from speaking publicly about accusations against Allen and from Chalamet offering a word of support to Farrow.
"What I don't understand is how is this insane story of me being brainwashed and coached more believable than what I'm saying about being sexually assaulted by my father?" "It seems to have worked - and, sadly, I'm sure Dylan truly believes what she says". "And that they are enough to change things".
His vow follows that of Timothee Chamolet, star of Allen's forthcoming A Rainy Day in NY, to donate his salary from the picture, in part, to the Time's Up campaign.
His A Rainy Day in NY co-star Hall did the same, donating her earnings to Time's Up.
The Allen boycott could stem from his estranged stepdaughter, Dylan Farrow. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry.
"I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's wellbeing". It shouldn't have to be that a small army has to come forward against one person to be credible.
