Actress Rebecca Hall said Friday that she has donated her salary from an upcoming Woody Allen film to the "Time's Up" fund to combat sexual harassment.

Hall, who appears in the film "A Rainy Day in New York," wrote on Instagram that she made the decision after reading statements from Allen's adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, who has accused Allen of molesting her.

"My actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed," Hall wrote. "That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry."

The day after the Weinstein accusation broke in full force I was shooting a day of work on Woody Allen’s latest movie in New York. I couldn’t have imagined somewhere stranger to be that day. When asked to do so, some seven months ago, I quickly said yes. He gave me one of my first significant roles in film for which I have always been grateful, it was one day in my hometown - easy. I have, however subsequently realized there is nothing easy about any of this. In the weeks following I have thought very deeply about this decision, and remain conflicted and saddened. After reading and re-reading Dylan Farrow’s statements of a few days ago and going back and reading the older ones - I see, not only how complicated this matter is, but that my actions have made another woman feel silenced and dismissed. That is not something that sits easily with me in the current or indeed any moment, and I am profoundly sorry. I regret this decision and wouldn’t make the same one today. It’s a small gesture and not one intended as close to compensation but I’ve donated my wage to @timesup. I’ve also signed up, will continue to donate, and look forward to working with and being part of this positive movement towards change not just in Hollywood but hopefully everywhere. #timesup

As the #MeToo movement aimed at bringing attention to sexual misconduct allegations has swept Hollywood and taken down numerous men in the film industry, many have openly questioned why Allen has not been among them.

Farrow's accusations against her father were made public years ago, but Allen has continued to make films starring prominent actors and actresses with many publicly brushing off the allegations.

Farrow's brother Ronan Farrow is the journalist who reported on the rape accusations against Harvey Weinstein in the New Yorker.

Hall's announcement comes the day after actress Mira Sorvino also publicly denounced Allen, writing an open letter to Dylan Farrow apologizing for acting in one of Allen's films in the 1990s.
