Rising variety of actors surrender Woody Allen

Dylan Farrows talks molestation allegations as more celebrities distance themselves from Woody Allen

Why are Hollywood's famous men refusing to condemn Woody Allen?

Woody Allen is firing back after daughter Dylan Farrow doubled down on allegations the famed director sexually abused her.

Rebecca Hall: The actress, who first worked with Allen on 2008's "Vicky Christina Barcelona" and stars in his latest film, "A Rainy Day in NY", announced earlier this month that she plans to donate her salary from the upcoming movie to the Time's Up campaign, which was launched earlier this year to promote gender equality. However, a source close to the singer stated that she has in fact also donated to the Time's Up movement - and has given significantly more than she was paid for A Rainy Day in NY.

She said he had been her "hero", adding: "I loved my father". She called on other actors to support her.

Woody Allen's adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow, said her father sexually abused her when she was a child.

Dylan's interview comes after Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Hall, who both star in the director's upcoming film A Rainy Day in NY, publicly announced their intention to donate their salaries from the movie to the Time's Up movement, which helps victims of abuse and harassment seek justice, while Timothee has also split his between two other charities as well.

But Farrow's most damning assertion-one that everyone should hear and think very hard about-comes when King asks about Allen's "defense" against her accusations.

In her first television interview about the Oscar-winning film-maker, a tearful Dylan shared her regret that charges had never been filed against Allen over the alleged incident which is said to have taken place in 1992 when she was seven. "I am credible and I am telling the truth", she insisted. Dylan Farrow became visibly emotional.

Farrow says Allen took her to a small attic crawl space, instructed her to lay down on her stomach and play with her brother's toy train, while he sat behind in the doorway and touched her private parts.

Farrow alleged that she was molested when Allen visited her mother's CT home in August 1992, in the middle of a custody fight. "As a mother and a woman, this breaks my heart for you", she wrote.

United States 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. She also wanted celebrities who work with and praise Allen to "acknowledge their complicity and maybe hold themselves accountable to how they have perpetuated this culture of silence in their industry". 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. Selena Gomez, who stars in the same movie, has already reportedly donated a fee larger than her salary to charity.

Farrow first spoke out publicly about the allegations in a 2014 New York Times essay.

Timothee Chalamet, her co-star, said the same.
