Hall donates salary from Allen's film to Time's Up fund

Mira Sorvino Writes 'I Believe You' in Open Letter to Dylan Farrow 4 Actors Who've Said They Regret Working With Woody Allen

"Our lives have to become more equitable in every way, but I think we still have to stay focused on harassment and abuse issues rather than jettisoning them in favor of a very general women's movement", Sorvino said during a panel at the Television Critics Association press tour for her new show, "Condor".

Sorvino said that while Allen never overstepped his bounds with her, that was not an excuse to "turn a blind eye". Sorvino won an Oscar for her performance in his 1995 film, Mighty Aphrodite, but has since re-examined her decision to work with Allen due to Farrow's accusations.

"Why is it that Harvey Weinstein and other accused celebrities have been cast out by Hollywood, while Allen recently secured a multimillion-dollar distribution deal with Amazon, greenlit by former Amazon Studios executive Roy Price before he was suspended over sexual misconduct allegations", Farrow wrote.

Hall is slated to appear in Allen's upcoming film, A Rainy Day in NY, and she starred in the director's 2008 romantic comedy, Vicky Cristina Barcelona. At that time, he claims that he "swallowed" media version and believed that accusations against his far were product of a "twisted battle between Mia Farrow and him [Woody Allen] for custody [of his children]".

Allen was never charged with a crime and has always maintained his innocence, but the claims have continued to hit headlines ever since Dylan went public with her side of the story in 2014.

Rebecca explains that her attempts to reconcile her career trajectory with the suffering of other women was hugely painful, and she hopes that by donating her wage from A Rainy Day in NY to the #TimesUp campaign, she can go someway towards rectifying the matter.

Hall said she had a change of heart when reading a Los Angeles Times opinion piece Dylan Farrow, now 35, penned last month stating that the #MeToo 'revolution has been selective, ' and asking why Allen had not suffered the professional reckoning others had. After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow's statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones - I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed. In the essay, Farrow called out prominent actresses including Gerwig, Blake Lively, and Kate Winslet for continuing to work with the filmmaker. "If this means tearing down all the old gods, so be it", she wrote.

Sorvino concluded her letter with an apology to Dylan Farrow and her mother, Mia Farrow.

"I never personally experienced what has now been described as inappropriate behavior toward young girls", she said. Even if you love someone, if you learn they may have committed these despicable acts, they must be exposed and condemned, and this exposure must have consequences. Your courage has been boundless and your activism an example for us all.

Her words inspired awards darling Greta Gerwig and actress Mira Sorvino to both come forward and apologize to Dylan and express their regret over working with Allen.
