A atriz Rebecca Hall, um dos destaques no próximo filme do cineasta Woody Allen, A “Rainy Day in New York”, afirmou que irá doar tudo o que ganhar com o trabalho para o fundo Time’s Up, criado pelas atrizes de Hollywood para combater o assédio sexual.

Hall escreveu em sua conta no Instagram que foi contratada para o filme, mas é “profundamente pesaroso” e que se arrepende de trabalhar com o cineasta por causa das denúncias relativas ao comportamento sexual de Allen no passado. A filha adotiva do cineasta, Dylan Farrow, acusa o pai de abuso sexual quando ela tinha sete anos. Ele, por sua vez, nega a acusação.

Na última sexta (12/1), a atriz, que já havia trabalhado com o diretor em “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”, disse que reconsiderou o cargo depois de revisar as acusações de abuso. “Depois de reler as declarações de Dylan de alguns dias atrás e voltar para ler as mais antigas, eu vejo o quão complicada é essa questão… Me arrependo dessa decisão (de participar do filme) e não faria o mesmo hoje.”

The day after the Weinstein accusation broke in full force I was shooting a day of work on Woody Allen’s latest movie in New York. I couldn’t have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day. When asked to do so, some seven months ago, I quickly said yes. He gave me one of my first significant roles in film for which I have always been grateful, it was one day in my hometown – easy. I have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this. In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened. 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. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry. I regret this decision and wouldn’t make the same one today. It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to @timesup. I’ve also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere. #timesup
