Woody Allen has not cut a hair on his autobiography. After losing its original publisher, by the pressure of the workers and Ronan Farrow, the memoir, titled ‘Apropos of Nothing’, have already gone on sale through Arcade Publishing. In addition to go back to talk about the accusations of sexual abuse by Dylan Farrow, also dedicates a few lines to those actors, who, at the time of the #MeToo, they decided to give back after working with him. And, more specifically, throws a dart to Timothée Chalamet.
The actor of ‘Call Me By Your Name’ work with Allen on ‘rainy Day in New York’, a film that was already complicated to see the light because Amazon decided to bury her after the revival of the accusations against the director. Chalamet was one of the actors who have condemned the acts of Allen and announced that he would donate his entire salary from the movie to the Time’s Up. Now Allen takes its revenge accusing him of you have given back just to increase your options of winning the Oscar for the film Luca Guadagnino.
“The three protagonists of ‘rainy Day’ were excellent and it was a pleasure to work with them. Timothée later said publicly that he regretted working with me and that I was going to give the money to charity, but he swore to my sister that I needed to do it because he was a candidate for an Oscar for ‘Call Me By Your Name’ and he and his agent thought they would have more options to win if I was critical, so he did. Be that as it may, I do not regret to work with him and I’m not going to donate any of my money”as he says in the autobiography (via Page Six). Chalamet has not been pronounced, but to be true, as the winds blew in their favor because they lost the statuette in front of Gary Oldman and his work as Winston Churchill in ‘The darkest hour’.
Message for those who deny him, and for those who continue to support
In the memories, Woody Allen has a general message to all the actors and actresses who turned their back on him, as Rebecca Hall, Colin Firth, Michael Caine or Greta Gerwig: “The fact that these actors and actresses have never investigated the details of the case (could not have done it and have come to these conclusions with much certainty), they have not been arrested for speaking publicly, with a conviction so obstinate. Some said that now his policy is to always believe the woman. I would expect that most of the people who think reject a thought so simple“. Also take the opportunity to send a message to the players, such as Javier Bardem or Scarlett Johansson, who have followed their side: “More people should have said, in reality I do not know all the facts so I have to hold my judgment. God forbid that someone were to say: ‘This allegation has been investigated thoroughly and was found not to be true’. But thank you all [los que me defendieron]because it was very nice on his part to speak to you, and I assure you that is not something that is going to regret having done so“. What more pearls will be saved ‘Apropos of Nothing’?
