    Before you all yell at me for making this post, here’s his official statement:

    “This year has changed the way I see and feel about so many things; it has been a thrilling and, at times, enlightening education. 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, and 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.”

    Good on Chalamet, and all the other actors who have done the right thing. Hopefully, the next step is people just not working with Allen to begin with.

    An incredibly mature response. Kudos to him for donating to 3 charities and speaking up.

    Is Woody Allen finally a pariah?

    Noah, you’re new here, but please understand: not every news or every daily Twitter outrage needs its own thread. Something like this could’ve been posted in the CMBYN thread.

    Or in his first thread about how Timothée Chalamet’s collaboration with Woody Allen was coming under fire.

    haha when i saw this thread i was like pls dont let it be NOAH pls dont let it be NOAH. i was just about to bite ur head off…. LOL but thanks for sharing this hopefully everyone can see this now and stop dissing him for working with allen.

    His response is gold. I mean all those people were blind that he was under contract and could not say anything. But now he has cleared all this up. Hopefully they STILL dont drag him on twitter.

    I thought that had been deleted. Anyway, that shouldn’t have been created either

    LOL Yeah I realized in the last thread I unintentionally made it seem like I was trying to surround all this controversy solely on Chalamet. So I kinda hoped this one made up for it.

    Also I agree about the contract. That’s what I figured when he said he couldn’t really talk about it. One of the things I like about his statement is how he admitted what his mindset was when he first signed on for the film. Which was basically getting his name out there type of thing. He didn’t make any excuses and owned up to his mistake. By the looks of it, it seems his statement is going over really well. 🙂

    Great job Timothee! I can now root for him to win SAG again without any weird sense of guilt in doing so! A great actor that also conveniently turns out to be a pretty great human being. I love this specific line of his, “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.” This #MeToo revolution has been eye-opening for me as well, teaching me so much more about what is and isn’t okay when it comes to talking to women, treating women, and the complex layers of systemic misogyny. I’m grateful that this cultural moment is finally happening, and that Timothee has chosen to go down on the decent side of it when he could easily have stayed silent and pocketed his money. Well done. 🙂

    Note to myself: Don’t ever feed the trolls. Don’t get involved in others drama. Don’t let myself be swayed by others predictions, trust my gut more often!

    Note to all others: If you don’t happen to like me, ignore me. It is that simple.

    This isn’t that off topic from the thread, because while it has nothing to do with Timothee’s response it still has to do with Woody Allen.

    I had decided to refrain from posting about the Woody Allen / Dylan Farrow allegations, but these articles here made my blood boil with rage. Don’t let yourself be fooled by misleading assholes like Robert Weide! http://www.slate.com/articles/life/culturebox/2014/02/woody_allen_and_dylan_farrow_digging_deeper_into_misleading_coverage.html

    This too. If a 35-year age difference doesn’t seem pretty big to you then you don’t know how to count.

    https://pagesix.com/2015/07/30/woody-allen-soon-yi-responded-to-me-because-i-was-paternal/

    “Woody Allen says his 23-year relationship with Soon-Yi Previn worked because of their previous parent-child relationship.”

    “I’m 35 years older, and somehow, through no fault of mine or hers, the dynamic worked,” the 79-year-old director told NPR in an interview published Wednesday. “I was paternal. She responded to someone who was paternal.”

    I think I now know why Moses said that Woody didn’t molest Dylan but “thinks she was.” LOL to that! It is because Moses had a horrible relationship with Mia Farrow as a kid and believes that by denying Dylan’s truth he can get back at Mia, who supports Dylan. That is some twisted family politics right there, but sadly that seems to be the case. I do believe Moses when he tells his stories about Mia being crazy and abusive to him as a young boy. Still, that gives him a personal bias for wanting to hurt her by hurting Dylan with his own false claims.

    I just… I know I shouldn’t post when I get angry and emotional, but sometimes seeing the ignorance and delusion of human beings I want to like or at least respect, that just gets the better of me sometimes.

    #IBelieveDylan 🙁
