Timothée Chalamet worked his way into our hearts with recent smash hit films Call Me By Your Name and Lady Bird, but has displayed brilliance offscreen, as well—most recently, by pledging via a statement on Instagram to donate his salary from the upcoming Woody Allen film A Rainy Day in New York to The LGBT Center in New York, The Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, and RAINN.
Chalamet, at age 22, is doing something that men who have been Hollywood staples much longer are refusing to do: he is holding himself accountable for his choices. Chalamet seems to understand that the issue is not that working with Woody Allen was bad for his own career, but rather that the continued acceptance of Woody Allen's actions and those of abusers like him are the root of the problem. Allen can still make movies so long as people are willing to work with him, and although Chalamet might have learned that particular lesson a little too late, it's clear he wants to do whatever he can to now be a part of the solution. Many actors should look to the young man as an example of both what to do when you have worked with an abuser, and exactly how to do it.
