Woody Allen Says Timothée Chalamet Blasted Him in Order to Get an Oscar

So apparently, Woody Allen thinks Timothée Chalamet claimed he didn’t want to work with the director in order to enhance his chances of a 2018 Oscar win.

In a passage from Woody’s book Apropos of Nothing, as reported by Entertainment Weekly, the director writes the 24-year-old actor — who starred in his most recent movie A Rainy Day in New York — publicly denounced him after production ended in order to make him more likely to win an Oscar for 2018’s Call Me by Your Name.

“All three leads in Rainy Day were excellent and a pleasure to work with,” Woody said of Elle Fanning and Selena Gomez, who also appeared in the film. “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.”

Just for the record, Timothée’s Oscar nomination for Call Me by Your Name was announced eight days after he denounced Woody and declared that he would donate his Rainy Day in New York salary to Time’s Up, The LGBT Center in New York City, and the Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN).

The star ultimately lost Best Actor to Gary Oldman for Darkest Hour.

“Anyhow, I didn’t regret working with him,” Woody continued of the young actor in the book, “and I’m not giving any of my money back.”

Hmm… well, what can you say at this point? Whatever Woody wants to think to make feel better is fine with us — but at the end of the day, we see the truth as clear as day.
