In a statement, Firth, who appeared in Allen's 2013 film Magic in the Moonlight, said: "I wouldn't work with him again". On the same day, Firth released a public statement via the Guardian and announced he won't work with Woody Allen again.
In her first television interview about the Oscar-winning film-maker, a tearful Dylan shared her regret that charges had never been filed against Allen over the alleged incident which is said to have taken place in 1992 when she was seven. Firth is the latest in a strong of actors to rebuke Allen following his daughter's claims.
Three days ago, Timothée Chalamet, who stars in the critically-acclaimed film "Call Me by Your Name", posted on his official Instagram account that he was giving his salary from starring in the yet-to-be-released Woody Allen film, "A Rainy Day in NY", to three nonprofit organizations.
Rainy Day co-star Rebecca Hall also donated her salary from the film to Time's Up, after Newman but before Chalamet. "Instead, they found it likely a vulnerable child had been coached to tell the story by her angry mother during a contentious breakup".
Farrow alleged that she was molested when Allen visited her mother's CT home in August 1992, in the middle of a custody fight. "It seems to have worked - and, sadly, I'm sure Dylan truly believes what she says".
"He's lying and he's been lying for so long", Farrow told CBS This Morning in the interview that aired Thursday, breaking down into tears when watching a clip of Allen denying the alleged assault. When Mia Farrow asked why she didn't repeat what she had said earlier, "I told her that I was embarrassed".
The allegation first surfaced in the wake of her parents' bitter split, when he left actress and activist Mia Farrow for her adoptive daughter from a previous marriage, Soon-Yi Previn, who was 21 then.
"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. "Honestly, it's the decision that I have made in my life that is the most inconsistent with everything I stand for and believe in, both publicly and privately", she told The Hollywood Reporter. In our time of MeToo and Time's Up, I'd like to think that's changing; the fact that Dylan Farrow is now afforded a platform far larger than an open letter on a New York Times blog is encouraging. 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. Allen called the accusation "untrue and disgraceful" at the time.
Allen denied the allegations, as he always has.
