Woody Allen claims Timothee Chalamet publicly denounced him to better chances of winning an Oscar

Published

Woody Allen claims that actor Timothee Chalamet denounced him to better his chances of winning an Oscar.

Allen, 84, directed Chalamet, 24, in the film A Rainy Day In New York which was filmed in the latter part of 2017 and before Chalamet’s Academy Award nomination in January 2018 for the movie Call Me By Your Name.

‘Timothée afterward publicly stated he regretted working with me and was giving the money to charity,’ the director wrote in his just published autobiography Apropos Of Nothing. 

‘But he swore to my sister he needed to do that as he was up for an Oscar for Call Me by Your Name, and he and his agent felt he had a better chance of winning if he denounced me, so he did.’

Woody Allen claims in his new memoir that Timothee Chalamet publicly denounced him after making A Rainy Day In New York in late 2017 to better his chances of winning an Oscar for Call Me By Your Name (the pair are pictured on the location set in NYC in October 2017)

Chalamet has not publicly commented on Allen’s claims.

The actor was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award for the Luca Guadagnino independent drama in which he starred opposite Armie Hammer.

He lost out to British actor Gary Oldman who won for his portrayal of Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour.

Chalamet announced in early January 2018 he was donating his salary from the Allen film to charity including Time's Up which had been established by celebrities at the start of that year in response to the allegations against Harvey Weinstein

Chalamet announced in early January 2018 he was donating his salary from the Allen film to charity including Time’s Up which had been established by celebrities at the start of that year in response to the allegations against Harvey Weinstein. 

His Rainy Day co-star Rebecca Hall donated her earnings from the film to Time’s Up as well while co-star Selena Gomez also made a sizable donation.

For his part, Allen stated in his book that he did not regret working with Chaalemt but, he quipped, ‘I’m not giving any of my money back.’ 

A Rainy Day In New York was released theatrically in Europe but not in the United States after Amazon Studios severed all ties with Allen in February 2019.  

Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan continues to allege that he molested her in 1992, a claim Allen has consistently denied. 

His memoir was released on Monday after a delay because the original publisher backed out of releasing the book following protests led by Dylan’s sibling Ronan Farrow.

Elsewhere in his book, Allen commented further on the stars who refuse to work for him or who donate their pay checks to a cause afterwards. 

‘This is not as heroic a gesture as it seems, as we can only afford to pay the union minimum, and my guess is if we paid more usual movie money, which often runs quite high, the actors might have righteously declared they´d never work with me but would possibly leave out the part about donating their salary,’ he wrote.

Lori Loughlin’s youngest daughter Olivia Jade Giannulli shared a series of post-bath snaps of herself gazing at her own reflection in the vanity mirror while in quarantine at her family’s Los Angeles home on Monday.

The 20-year-old Marymount High School grad clutched a healthy green smoothie while clad in nothing but a white terry cloth robe as she admired her youthful make-up free complexion.

The defiant influencer hasn’t shared a YouTube vlog with her captive, combined 3.4M social media following since her ‘Everyday Routine’ post from December 17.

Olivia said on YouTube on December 1 that she’s ‘legally not allowed to speak on anything that’s going on right now’ with her parents’ college admissions scandal.

Meanwhile, Jade’s 21-year-old sister Isabella Rose also shared quarantine selfies on Monday captioned ‘signed sealed delivered’ – which might have been a reference to Stevie Wonder or the Hallmark Channel series.

Bella acted opposite her famous 55-year-old mother in Hallmark Channel movies-of-the-week Homegrown Christmas in 2018 and Every Christmas Has a Story in 2016. The cable network has since fired Lori.

The Giannulli sisters have also been social distancing with Olivia’s singer boyfriend Jackson Guthy, whom she began dating again in June after a brief two-month split.

MAFS’ Martha Kalifatidis is ‘caught out’ crying in public after her ‘break-up’ with Michael Brunelli

Published

Married At First Sight‘s Martha Kalifatidis had a public meltdown on Monday – conveniently in front of the paparazzi – after her alleged ‘split’ with Michael Brunelli.

The 31-year-old makeup artist wiped tears from her eyes while buying red wine from a bottle shop in Sydney’s Bondi Beach with her sister, Sophie.

Martha appeared to be reading text messages on her phone, after she and Michael had shared a number of texts to Instagram that same day which indicated they had broken up.

It’s widely suspected the ‘break-up texts’ saga is part of a sponsored content deal, most likely for Huawei mobile phones.

During the trip to the liquor store, Martha showed off her abs in a beige crop top and high-waisted cargo pants. 

She went makeup free and styled her brunette hair in loose, tousled curls.  

Her sister, Sophie, wore a black tracksuit and was seen looking over Martha’s shoulder as she scrolled through her phone.

On Monday night, Martha and Michael shared a number of text messages on Instagram which appeared to indicate that they have split. 

The pair – who began dating after meeting on season six of MAFS in late 2018 – both shared screenshots showing part of a dramatic conversation they had over their smartphones.

Martha also posted an Instagram Stories video in which she revealed she was sleeping alone, while insisting she ‘deserved better’ than what she’d been dealing with while the couple are isolated together in their new Bondi home.

In the texts, Michael, 28, asked his girlfriend if she was ‘joking’ when she said she was fed up, and told her she was being too dramatic, but Martha ranted on.

She wrote: ‘You know I don’t play Michael, I don’t have time for this. I’m so busy, I have work to do. I need better support, I want a better connection! I just need more everything’. 

When former teacher Michael asked Martha what had changed, she complained: ‘We have had hassles every single day and it’s just an unnecessary burden on me.

‘I can’t do mediocre, I want the best!’ she wrote, before adding: ‘I’m so fkn done!!!! I’m upgrading. Bye bihhh’.

Michael shared his part of the text exchange on Instagram, captioning the set of screenshots: ‘I’m not about to go into a back and forth, but honestly this is so dramatic…’ 

Martha likewise shared her own texts, which she captioned: ‘2020… didn’t think it could get any worse.’
