Woody Allen claims Timothée Chalamet denounced him to increase Oscar chances

Woody Allen writes in his new memoir about Timothée Chalamet :
“All the three leads in ‘Rainy Day’ were excellent and a pleasure to work with. Timothée afterward publicly stated he regretted working with me and was giving the money to charity, but he swore to my sister he needed to do that as he was up for an Oscar for ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ and he and his agent felt he had a better chance of winning if he denounced me, so he did. Anyhow, I didn’t regret working with him and I’m not giving any of my money back.”

About other actors who denounced him, Allen writes in the book :
“The fact these actors and actresses never looked into the details of the case (they couldn’t have and come to their conclusion with such certainty) did not stop them from speaking out publicly with dogged conviction. Some said it was now their policy to always believe the woman. I would hope most thinking people reject such simple-mindedness.”

About the people who have spoken out in his defense :
“More people should have said, I really don’t know all the facts so I have to withhold my judgment. God forbid anyone should say, ‘This accusation has been thoroughly investigated and found to be untrue,' but thanks to all, because it was very nice of them to speak out, and I assure them it’s not something they will ever be embarrassed having done.”

Guess that's one young person he doesn't like.

Fuck. You. Asshole. Timmy's actual mistake was working with your hack ass in the first place. He's like 12 and he's already a critical darling, I don't think he needs support from your rapist ass.
Oh so, he's trying to make me like Chalamet? That's working.

The facts we know are all that's necessary to have a solid opinion here. Wtf. This is not a grey area at all. Also, time for the urn.
EXACTLY. How anybody is able to overlook that or even attempt to explain it as remotely normal or okay is beyond me.
i hope one day she escapes. the way he talks about their relationship is nearly as creepy as the fact that they have it.
Heyyyyy he didn't GROOM HER.

And the sibling to his kids.
MTE. No more "evidence" needed after that. The fact that he was still extremely popular in Hollywood while knowing this is worrying.

When people say it isn't a big deal I tell them that he is his childrens' brother in law...

That usually shuts them up right quick
he also tried to fuck marielle hemingway whilst she was playing his underage girlfriend in manhattan (whilst being underage herself).
This! Even if he somehow succeeds making the whole world believe that Dylan is a crazy liar, he is right there, married to a woman who is also his adopted daughter. For me that is enough evidence to believe Dylan over him, any day.
Coronavirus. Do us all a favour.
From your lips to god's ears, amen
Lord, strike him down, for fuck's sake.
Hate this weasel.

he's a bad writer. i know this is his attempt to get the last word in but this is unbearably badly written. who edited this??

man, he's a hack.
For real, this was painful to read
all he does is write the same tired story about some old boring 'writer' meeting a teenage ingenue
lmao. honestly, on top of everything else you write like r/Im14andThisIsDeep?
Even if people were to ignore Dylan’s situation (& of course too many still do), the man still married a young woman who was basically his stepchild for years and years. Interesting how he always tries to say he had little to do with Mia’s kids and then photo after photo pops up with them at least presenting as a family unit.
His fans always claim he didn’t know Soon-Yi when she was a kid. Of course he did!

It makes me wonder how much they’d defend a random guy for marrying his long term gf’s daughter.
I mean is meeting and hooking up with your gfs teen or college aged daughter really that much better? No matter how he tries to spin it, it's gross af.

Theres like so much smoke it's literally suffocating, there's intense heat, and what's the bright orange glow? But you know, some people still need more "proof" that there's a fire.

And what gets me is, even if he didn't know her at all, it's still so strange to date your ex's child....like, what ? That's a red flag on its own ....her young age also was even if they didn't have that familial connection. It's wild even on a small scale to me, and knowing all of the other details it's like, how are people not more sickened?
Fuck off, pedo.
This absolute piece of shit. Rona, come get him.
Some said it was now their policy to always believe the woman. I would hope most thinking people reject such simple-mindedness.

Ugh, Jesus. The way people try to spin "believe women" into "always believe all women no matter what without any nuance" is so transparent and stupid. Maybe, just maybe, people believe Dylan because she has no reason to lie and he also MARRIED HIS STEPDAUGHTER and keeps obsessively making movies about much older men and younger women/girls. Tiny little clues like that.
corona, sweetie, do your thing omfg
i don't even understand why actors want to work with him. beyond him being reprehensible his movies are shitty and don't make money. i guess it's just a clout thing. how sad.
All I know is Kristen Stewart said she thought it would be "fruitful" for her career to work with him. Translation: I might get an Oscar nomination, because he's famous for getting Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominations and wins for his actresses.

She agreed to do Cafe Society after Dylan's NY Times letter was published. But like Kate Winslet, she's more ambitious than moral. But we knew that already.
