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.”

Okay but when is he going to die?
I believe the Timothee bit.

It’d be nice if corona claimed him but does this old man leave his house that often?
he needs to die
Isn’t Woody tired by now?
Lol he's not wrong
Why do evil people take so long to die?
"I assure them it’s not something they will ever be embarrassed having done.”

well he's right about this. if you're willing to defend a pedophile child predator while knowing he literally married his daughter after grooming her through childhood then i don't see what could make you go back on that.
i would almost believe that if timothee was truly under the immense delusion that anyone was going to beat gary oldman that year
Does he mention Selena and Elle?

I will always hate Diane Keaton and that white British man for working with him unapologetically. Obviously scarjo as well
I'm glad Tintin hurt his feelings/bruised his ego.
I mean. Duh. Also I hate Woody Allen.
Someome get him knighted by Prince Charles
If Timmy's hand fans take Woody down, I'll be pleased.

I don't he'll comment on this
Lol at the idea it's not totally obvious he's a creep without ~looking into the details of the case
This book is just his version of a burn book, isn't it?
