Hollywood's History of Sexual Misconduct

As more and more stars speak out against Woody Allen in light of the Time's Up movement, Baldwin takes the other side.

Two big stars took two very different and very public stances on working with Woody Allen this week.

"Call Me By Your Name" actor Timothee Chalamet followed in the footsteps of Rebecca Hall on Monday night, donating his salary from his work on one of Allen's film to charity. Allen has been accused of molesting adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was a child, something he adamantly denies.

"This year has changed the way I see and feel about so many things; it has been a thrilling, and, at times, enlightening education," he wrote on his Instagram page last night. "I am learning that a good role isn't the only criteria for accepting a job -- that has become much clearer to me in the past few months, having witnessed the birth of a powerful movement intent on ending injustice, inequality and above all, silence."

"I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer," he continued. "I'm not able to answer the question directly because of contractual obligations. 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."

In addition to Chalamet and Hall, Greta Gerwig, Ellen Page, Mira Sorvino and David Krumholtz have all expressed recent regret over working with Allen.

But there's one actor who Allen's still got in his corner: Alec Baldwin.

Baldwin -- who appeared in Allen's films "Blue Jasmine," "To Rome with Love" and "Alice" -- defended the director Tuesday morning on Twitter.

"Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed," he tweeted. "The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose. But it's unfair and sad to me. I worked [with] WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career."

"Is it possible to support survivors of pedophilia and sexual assault/abuse and also believe that WA is innocent?" he asked. "I think so. The intention is not to dismiss or ignore such complaints. But accusing ppl of such crimes should be treated carefully. On behalf of the victims, as well."

Baldwin went on to re-tweet abuse accusations Moses Farrow made against Mia Farrow.
