11 Stars Accused of Sexual Misconduct Before Hollywood's Harvey Weinstein Scandal

"My actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed," Hall wrote.

Actress Rebecca Hall said she regrets working with Woody Allen after the #MeToo and Times's Up movements forced her reconsider their professional relationship.

Hall had a small part in the upcoming Allen film, "A Rainy Day in New York," which began filming right when the Harvey Weinstein story broke. She also worked with him previously in "Vicky Christina Barcelona."

For months Hollywood has been flipped upside down with endless accusations of sexual misconduct against directors, actors and producers alike. Woody Allen was accused of sexual abuse by his adoptive daughter, Dylan Farrow, who recently wondered why Allen had been "spared" him from backlash.

Hall is now taking a stand against the director, releasing a statement on Instagram.

"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," Hall wrote Friday. "When asked to do so, some seven months ago, I quickly said yes ... it was one day in my hometown - easy. I have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this."

Though Hall is grateful Allen helped kickstart her career, she went on to say that the decision to work with him again left her "conflicted and saddened."

"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 Time's Up," she continued. "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."

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

"Lady Bird" director Greta Gerwig, who appeared in Allen's 2012 film "To Rome with Love," also recently made a similar statement.

"If I had known then what I know now, I would not have acted in the film. I have not worked for him again, and I will not work for him again," Grewig said. "I increased another woman’s pain, and I was heartbroken by that realization"

Other women who have publicly renounced working with Allen include Mira Sorvino and Ellen Page, who calls "To Rome with Love" her "biggest regret."
