Consider the Woody Allen case. "Dylan's older brother Moses has said that he witnessed their mother doing exactly that - relentlessly coaching Dylan, trying to drum into her that her father was a unsafe sexual predator". The 25-year-old actress's donation is reported to be significantly more than her salary was for the movie.

"I wouldn't work with him again", Firth told the British newspaper. "I respected him. He was my hero", she told Gayle King in the interview that aired Thursday.

Ms Farrow, 32, repeated in graphic detail allegations that she first made as a seven-year-old girl.

That Dylan Farrow still meets with a credulous reception from those who would prefer to value Allen's artistry over his alleged history of molestation is one of the persistent hurdles that women face as MeToo continues its march.

"He's lying and he's been lying for so long", she said. 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. I can not begin to imagine how you have felt, all these years as you watched someone you called out as having hurt you as a child, a vulnerable little girl in his care, be lauded again and again, including by me and countless others in Hollywood who praised him and ignored you.

Firth, who starred in Allen's 2014 film "Magic in the Moonlight", told the Guardian that he won't collaborate on any more projects with the controversial director-actor.

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

Allen - the director of more than 50 movies, a four-times Oscar victor and showered with awards in Europe - has always denied the allegations, which have never been proven.

Farrow said that in 1992, when she was 7 and her mother Mia Farrow was out shopping, Allen instructed her to play with her brother's train and then molested her.

USA 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. 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. It's a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I've donated my wage to @timesup.

Farrow's story is another important narrative that is being added to the overall discussion of industry abuse, and forcing Hollywood to take a hard look at itself and change.

In January, Timothée Chalamet, who stars in Rainy Day, announced that he too would be donating his salary from the film to three separate charities: Time's Up, RAINN, and the L.G.B.T. Center.

Farrow first spoke out publicly about the allegations in a 2014 New York Times essay. When Mia Farrow asked why she didn't repeat what she had said earlier, "I told her that I was embarrassed".
