ACTRESS Rebecca Hall regrets working with Woody Allen, and is donating proceeds from her work with the filmmaker to prove it.

According to the New York Post Hall, who starred in Allen’s Vicky Cristina Barcelona in 2008 and his upcoming A Rainy Day in New York, revealed her decision was due to the sexual abuse allegations that have been made against Allen for decades.

Hall posted a photo of the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund logo to Instagram overnight.

In the caption, Hall wrote that the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal made her reevaluate and apologise for her decision to work with Allen, who has been accused of sexually assaulting his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was seven years old.

Hall said that while she remains grateful to Allen for giving her one of her first film roles, rereading Farrow’s account of the alleged assault made her realise 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.”

The actress added that she has donated her wages from A Rainy Day in New York, which also stars Timothee Chalamet, Jude Law, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez, to Time’s Up and that she will continue to donate to the movement.

Hall’s statement of regret comes on the heels an open letter by Mira Sorvino, who appeared in Allen’s Mighty Aphrodite, where she expressed her regret and apologised for working with Allen.

Actress and director Greta Gerwig, who worked with Allen on To Rome With Love, also expressed that she would not work with the director again.

In response, Farrow posted a tweet which read, “Greta, thank you for your voice. Thank you for your words. Please know they are deeply felt and appreciated.”
