We’re only a few weeks into 2018 and it’s already pretty obvious that this year is going to be like no other. After the Time’s Up campaign — which aims at finally stopping gender-based violence and discrimination in Hollywood and beyond — made waves at this year’s Golden Globe awards, people were saying, “time’s up!” to men and women supporting the cause with buttons and attire while continuing to work with accused perpetrators of sexual violence, and thus contributing to their financial gain.

Although Woody Allen has seemed untouchable for years despite being accused of rape and pedophilia by his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, it’s possible that Hollywood may finally be turning its back on the famed director.

Twenty-two-year-old actor Timothée Chalamet rose to fame last year for his roles in Lady Bird and Call Me By Your Name and he’s the most recent actor to denounce Woody Allen. Chalamet also acted in the upcoming film A Rainy Day in New York, written and directed by Allen himself.

In a statement released on Instagram last night, Chalamet announced that he would be joining fellow costars Rebecca Hall and Griffin Newman in donating his entire salary from A Rainy Day in New York to charity.

Chalamet’s donations will support the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund, which provides subsidized legal support to those who have experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace; the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center in New York, which provides vital programs and services to support the city’s evolving LGBT community; and RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), the nation’s largest anti-sexual violence organization.

Rebecca Hall is similarly donating to Time’s Up and Griffin Newman to RAINN.

Chalamet, Hall, and Newman follow in the footsteps of many other film professionals, including Ellen Page, Greta Gerwig, and Mira Sorvino — all of whom have vowed never to work with Allen again.
