Rebecca Hall Is The Latest Actor To Vow Never To Work With Woody Allen Again

January 13, 2018 / Posted by:

Woody Allen had seemed fairly invulnerable when it came to the “Outing Celebrity Pervs Initiative 2017 – 2018.” Famous creepers are dropping like flies and yet Woody was still being celebrated by celebs. (Kate Winslet sounds like she got Prada to design her a special set of kneepads to assist with worshipping Woody.) Almost every actor worth their salt in Hollywood has worked with his skeevy ass despite Dylan Farrow, his adopted daughter with ex Mia Farrow, publicly accusing him of sexually molesting her in 1992 when she was seven. (Maybe they didn’t hear her because their applause for Roman Polanski was too loud?) And then sexual harassment pioneer Harvey Weinstein was exposed. Suddenly, celebrities are acknowledging Dylan’s story and are realizing their careers might be in jeopardy if they continue supporting him care! Rebecca Hall’s big break was in Woody’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona and she has a small role in his movie A Rainy Day In New York.  She’s now over him.

Indiewire points out that Rebecca put up a lengthy post on Instagram, declaring that working with Woody Allen again was a big mistake. She explained that she was filming A Rainy Day In New York when Hideous Harvey happened.

The day after the Weinstein accusation broke in full force I was shooting a day of work on Woody Allen’s latest movie in New York. I couldn’t have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day.

Er, not to shade Ms. Hall too heavily but Dylan Farrow went public in 2014. Don’t give me that look! I liked her in The Gift and The Town, too but it’s not like she was living with The Ancient One in Nepal and didn’t have access to media devices.

She explained that she will always be grateful to Woody for “one of my first significant roles in film” and for which she has “always been grateful.” However, having thought about it…

I have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this. In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened.

In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened. After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow’s statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones – I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed.

She apologized and explained that while she knows it’s in no way compensation, she’s donating her entire salary from A Rainy Day In New York to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund. And as for working with ole’ Woody again? Not even if he was directin’ a Marvel movie!

I regret this decision and wouldn’t make the same one today.

Rebecca joins Mira Sorvino, Greta Gerwig, David Krumholtz, Griffin Newman and Ellen Page in fleeing the burning building that is Woody Allen and his career. Hey, at least his bestie Diane Keaton is probably still hanging in there. Diane is womb to tomb for Woody. Dude could napalm a nunnery and Diane would probably pull whatever ridiculous hat she was wearing that day over her eyes and keep believing her friend.

Here’s Rebecca’s full statement:

The day after the Weinstein accusation broke in full force I was shooting a day of work on Woody Allen’s latest movie in New York. I couldn’t have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day. When asked to do so, some seven months ago, I quickly said yes. 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. I have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this. In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened. After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow’s statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones – I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry. I regret this decision and wouldn’t make the same one today. It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to @timesup. I’ve also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere. #timesup
