The Academy Award-winning actor confirmed his decision in a statement to The Guardian on Thursday (January 19).

If Allen were to ask her again, Cotillard says she would do more research this time.

Dylan Farrow discussed in graphic detail how her adopted father Woody Allen allegedly sexually assaulted her in an attic during the summer of 1992.

The 22-year-old actor vowed in an Instagram post Monday to give his pay from Allen's film "A Rainy Day in New York" to Time's Up, an equality and anti-harassment campaign, RAINN, the Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, and The LGBT Center in NY.

Then Mia Farrow, with whom Allen had a 12-year relationship, appeared in 13 of his movies, including "Hannah and Her Sisters" - one of his greatest commercial successes.

Woody Allen with wife, Soon-Yi Previn, is maintaining his innocence on accusations he molested daughter Dylan Farrow. Later that year, during the subsequent fight over custody of Allen and Farrow's three children (Moses, Ronan and Dylan), the Connecticut State Police investigated allegations that Allen had molested 7-year-old Dylan Farrow.

"I've been struggling, coping on my good days, with the aftershocks of being sexually assaulted as a small child and that's real", she said.

"I don't want to profit from my work on the film", he wrote.

"What I don't understand is how is this insane story of me being brainwashed and coached is more believable than what I'm saying about being sexually assaulted by my father", Dylan Farrow said Thursday.

"They both did so many months and independently concluded that no molestation had ever taken place". Mira Sorvino even showed support for Dylan and told her that she believes her story.

"He's lying and he's been lying for so long", she said while being interviewed by CBS This Morning. In one case, Farrow stated that her private parts were touched by Allen while she was playing with her brother's toys.

Allen had a rebuttal regarding Farrow's allegations, stating that she is taking advantage of the rise of the "Time's Up" and "MeToo" movement in order to make her claims once more since they have already been discredited in the past.

"A Rainy Day in New York" is the fourth project for Allen with Amazon, which bet heavily on the filmmaker to help establish its film production arm as a home to auteur filmmakers. Timothee Chalamet, who also stars in the same film, has also made a decision to donate his salary to Time's Up, RAINN, and the LGBT Center. Hall and Chalamet, who have parts in Allen's next film, A Rainy Day in NY, which was scheduled to be released this year, said they would donate their salaries to charities. The girl then told her mother.

"What I don't understand is how is this insane story about me being brainwashed and coached is more believable than me being sexually assaulted by my father", she said.

"He was always touching me, cuddling me and if I ever said, you know, like I want to go off by myself, he wouldn't let me", she said. As a result, the list of performers who aren't willing to work with Allen has grown-and now includes Colin Firth.
