Alec Baldwin criticises 'unfair' Woody Allen backlash

Hall, who also starred in Allen's 2008 film Vicky Cristina Barcelona, said she had been affected by public statements made by Farrow regarding Allen. In a sneak peek of Thursday's CBS This Morning, Farrow talks to host Gayle King about her father.

"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 well-being". "And that they are enough to change things".

Brosnahan joins a growing chorus of Allen collaborators who have sought to distance themselves from him in the wake of the #MeToo movement, including two who are now contending for Oscars for other film work: Lady Bird writer/director Greta Gerwig said that she wishes she had not worked with Allen, and Call Me By Your Name lead actor Timothee Chalamet said that he would be donating his full salary for his work in Allen's upcoming film A Rainy Day in NY to three charities: Time's Up, the LGBT Center in NY and RAINN, an anti-sexual violence organization.

Representatives of Allen did not respond to a request for comment on Tuesday.

Justin Timberlake and Kate Winslet starred in his 2017 film Wonder Wheel and Dylan Farrow has criticised the two for speaking in favour of the #metoo movement and Time's Up, but not against Allen.

Allen, who has long denied the allegations, was investigated but not charged. "I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again".

Actor Alec Baldwin on Tuesday expressed support for film maker Woody Allen as a growing number of entertainment industry stars seek to distance themselves from the "Annie Hall" director as part of the Time's Up campaign against sexual misconduct.

"The renunciation of (Allen) and his work, no doubt, has some objective", he wrote. I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career.

When King asked Farrow why people should believe her now, she replied, "I suppose that's on them, but all I can do is speak my truth and hope... hope that somebody will believe me instead of just hearing". This is a charge that was investigated aggressively and resulted in. nothing.
