Why are Hollywood’s famous men refusing to condemn Woody Allen?

Aside from Krumholtz and Griffin, men have remained largely silent on Allen—much like they remained silent at the Globes. Thus far, men have left most of the Time’s Up movement to be handled by women. After social media pressure from his young fan base, however, Timothée Chalamet was the first male star of an Allen film to express regrets. The Call Me By Your Name actor pledged to donate his salary to Time’s Up, the LGBT Center in New York, and RAINN, saying, “I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer. I am 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.”

But where are the other prominent men, like Wonder Wheel star Justin Timberlake? Why aren’t the other actors in A Rainy Day in New York standing with Chalamet, like Diego Luna, Jude Law, and Liev Schrieber? Why should men fear the question? There’s no consequences for them industry-wise for shameful behavior. Take for instance Alec Baldwin, who’s reacted to the wave of actors disavowing Allen by doubling down. Via his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation account, he tweeted, “Woody Allen was investigated forensically by two states (NY and CT) and no charges were filed. The renunciation of him and his work, no doubt, has some purpose. But it’s unfair and sad to me. I worked w WA 3 times and it was one of the privileges of my career.”
