Colin Firth: I won't work with Woody Allen again

Woody Allen faced widening isolation Friday over allegations that he molested his daughter more than 25 years ago, after Colin Firth joined the list of actors saying he would not work with the director again. "I am ashamed I did this". But fielding a starry cast may prove increasingly hard for Allen in a movie industry in the midst of a "Me Too" reckoning.

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.

This undated image released by Frances Silver shows Dylan Farrow, daughter of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow.

Firth starred in Allen's 2014 film 'Magic in the Moonlight, ' shot before Farrow detailed the alleged abuse for the first time in her own words in an open letter published on a New York Times blog in 2014. Given that Chalamet posted his donation announcement on Tuesday, that gave him enough time to gain the attention of his fellow actors before they vote for the awards.

Allen - the director of more than 50 movies, a four-times Oscar victor and showered with awards in Europe - has always denied the allegations, which have never been proven.

The report about Selena's generosity comes just a day after her mum Mandy Teefey told a user on Instagram that she advised her not to participate in the film. "That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry".

Trump in 'humiliating backpedal' over spying law
Trump's tweets on surveillance marked the second time this week that he appeared to veer from the administration's position. Critics of the program argue that it allows the warrantless collection of United States citizens' private information.

U.S. director Woody Allen poses on May 11, 2016, during a photocall for the film "Cafe Society" ahead of the opening of the 69th Cannes Film Festival, southern France. I couldn't have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day.

That Dylan Farrow still meets with a credulous reception from those who would prefer to value Allen's artistry over his alleged history of molestation is one of the persistent hurdles that women face as MeToo continues its march.

Farrow's story is another important narrative that is being added to the overall discussion of industry abuse, and forcing Hollywood to take a hard look at itself and change. The film received fairly average reviews, with a general consensus that it was a lesser version of more inspired Allen works of the past.

According to him, he couldn't say anything due to "contractual obligations". "Honestly, it's the decision that I have made in my life that is the most inconsistent with everything I stand for and believe in, both publicly and privately", she told The Hollywood Reporter.

Timothee Chalamet, her co-star, said the same. But 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 to three charities: "TIME'S UP, The LGBT Center in NY, and RAINN".
