As a result, Allen's future as a filmmaker is in question.

The actors who have distanced themselves from Allen include Timothee Chalamet, who.

In a statement, Firth, who appeared in Allen's 2013 film Magic in the Moonlight, said: "I wouldn't work with him again".

"I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer", he wrote.

The 82-year-old repeated his denial of the resurfaced accusations in a statement on Thursday, which accused Dylan and and his former wife, Mia Farrow, of hijacking anti-sexual harassment movement Time's Up.

"It's a bandwagon and things shift like this in the culture", said David Evanier, author of the 2015 book Woody: A Biography. "Please know they are deeply felt and appreciated".

"To me, it's a mixture of idealism and opportunism and hypocrisy".

"As a 32-year-old, he touched my labia and my vulva with his finger", Farrow elaborated.

But given the growing discomfort surrounding Allen, who has remarkably released a movie every year since 1982, financing may be harder to find.

However, the name did take fans by surprise. "Maybe like a middle name or something", said Taylor Tippett, in Chicago . Khloe Kardashian was the first family member to comment on it, writing: "I LOOOOOOOOOOVE her name", in a tweet.


"But today, if he asked me again, which I don't think he would - the experience we had together was very odd". Kim Masters, editor-at-large for The Hollywood Reporter, told CBC News. Considering that Allen is one of the most critically acclaimed writer and director in Hollywood, many fans claim that this signifies a fundamental change in Hollywood where men would often wield their power however they please.

Out actress Page costarred in Allen's 2012 film To Rome With Love, an homage to Giovanni Boccaccio's sex farce The Decameron.

She told CBS: "And what I don't understand is how is this insane story of me being brainwashed and coached more believable than what I'm saying about being sexually assaulted by my father?"

She said: "He instructed me to lay down on my stomach and play with my brother's toy train that was set up. Isn't that part of the problem?"

In October, "The Tick" star Griffin Newman tweeted that he regretted working on "A Rainy Day in New York" and said he was donating his salary. Investigators in CT did, however, believe that Mia had poisoned the family against Allen and coached Dylan - whose story they found "inconsistent" and "rehearsed". In an interview, Mia supported her daughter's claims that Allen abused her in their attic when she was just 7 years old.

Allen continues to deny Farrow's allegations. Allen confessed to an affair with Previn; the two married in 1997. But 2018 might-might-be the year that all that comes to an end. Mighty Aphrodite star Mira Sorvino, who won an Oscar for her performance, was among the first, apologizing to Farrow in an open letter. "She has never coached me", she said. She was originally his adopted daughter.

This week, Allen was the guy defending himself. She claims she wasn't that aware of Allen's life off-camera when she made the film. "The artist in his work has the right to roam wherever he wants", he said.

She added: "Why shouldn't I want to bring him down?"

"He's lying and he's been lying for so long", she said.
