Timothée Chalamet, who starred in the hit LGBT film Call Me By Your Name, understands that he owes to the LGBT community for the film success and he promises all the fees from his next film, A Rainy Day in New York, directed by Woody Allen, to be given to New York’s LGBT Community Centre, Time’s Up and sexual abuse charity RAINN. Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow has accused the Annie Hall director of sexually assaulting her when she was seven and the actor claims he does not want to receive any financial benefits from working with such a person. On Instagram, he wrote that he was asked about why he agreed to be involved in the film, but the contract conditions did not allow him to answer.“But what I can say is this: I don’t want to profit from my work on the film, and to that end, I am going to donate my entire salary to three charities: TIME’S UP, The LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN. I want to be worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the brave artists who are fighting for all people to be treated with the respect and dignity they deserve,” he explained.
