Oscar-winning director Woody Allen has reiterated that he never molested his daughter Dylan Farrow.

"I wouldn't work with him again", he said.

Dylan's interview comes after Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Hall, who both star in the director's upcoming film A Rainy Day in NY, publicly announced their intention to donate their salaries from the movie to the Time's Up movement, which helps victims of abuse and harassment seek justice, while Timothee has also split his between two other charities as well.

"I'm very ignorant of what he did or he didn't do, I just see people suffering and it's bad", she said to the Hollywood Reporter.

Woody, the 82 year old director has issued a statement, denying all the allegations.

"I Never Molested My daughter". However, CBS released a preview of the interview on Wednesday, in which Dylan stressed the validity of her allegations.

Hours after Farrow's interview aired on CBS, Allen responded and blamed his ex-wife, Mia Farrow, for brainwashing his former stepdaughter and using their private lives to help move the Time's Up Movement forward. Allen, who has long denied the allegations, was investigated for the incident but not charged.

"I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the fearless artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve", he said. Dylan's older brother Moses has said he witnessed their mother relentlessly coaching her, trying to drum into her that her father was a risky sexual predator. "It seems to have worked - and, sadly, I'm sure Dylan truly believes what she says". Why shouldn't I be hurt?

Allen's side of the story has been corroborated by Dylan's brother Moses Farrow, who told People magazine in 2014 that he believes there was an "atmosphere of fear and hate" created by Mia Farrow towards Allen. "Every step of the way, my mother has told me to tell the truth".

Hall and Chalamet, who star in Allen's upcoming A Rainy Day in NY, said they do not want to profit off Allen's work and will instead donate their salaries from the film to charity.

David Krumholtz: Last year, Krumholtz appeared in Allen's film "Wonder Wheel" - a decision he later called "one of my most heartbreaking mistakes".

"I loved her and hope one day she will grasp how she has been cheated out of having a loving father and exploited by a mother more interested in her own festering anger than her daughter's wellbeing". "It's a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I've donated my wage to Time's Up". Here's a running list of celebrities who worked with Allen who have now publicly rebuked him.
