Woody Allen accuses Timothee Chalamet of making a charitable gesture purely for career reasons.

Controversial film director Woody Allen has accused Timothee Chalamet of making a charitable gesture purely to boost his chances of winning an Oscar.

The 84-year-old directed Chalamet in the romantic comedy A Rainy Day in New York in 2017, but before the film was released, Allen was accused of sexual assault by his adopted daughter Dylan Farrow as part of the #MeToo movement.

Chalamet subsequently announced that he did not "want to profit" from his work on the film and instead donated his fee to Time's Up, the LGBT Centre in New York, and Rainn.

In his new autobiography Apropos of Nothing, published this week, Allen recalled: "Timothée afterward publicly stated he regretted working with me and was giving the money to charity.

"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."

Chalamet has not commented on Allen's allegations.
