Woody Allen has worked with a long list of beauties in his historic film career which include the likes of Diane Keaton, Mariel Hemingway and Scarlett Johansson.
In his latest film, the director reteams with Penelope Cruz and works with up-and-coming actresses Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page in "To Rome With Love." Allen told OnTheRedCarpet.com at the film's premiere that working with the actresses was "a nice way to make a living."
Owen Wilson spent several months in Paris, filming his new Woody Allen film, "Midnight in Paris" and was so taken with the city, that he's considering a move.
"I just loved living in Paris," Wilson told Chris Balish of OnTheRedCarpet.com. "I could see myself living there one day. It's a great city."
Director Woody Allen made headlines in 1992 when, at the age of 56, it was revealed that he was in a relationship with 21-year-old Soon Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow, his girlfriend of over 10 years and the leading lady in 13 of his films.
Farrow discovered the relationship when she found nude photos of Previn taken in Allen's Manhattan duplex, according to a 1992 People magazine article. The revelation sent Allen's name in the headlines and played out in court in a custody battle over Farrow and Allen's biological son Satchel Ronan O'Sullivan Farrow.
Michael Sheen has endlessly nice things to say about his "Midnight in Paris" co-star and girlfriend Rachel McAdams, but he was also terribly impressed by director Woody Allen.
"I think he's ploughed his own course, sort of outside of the studio system," Sheen told Chris Balish of OnTheRedCarpet.com. "He's made films that are very much his vision, very much absolutely his voice, the fact that he's so prolific as well, you know he's documented what it's really like."
Woody Allen's latest film, "Midnight in Paris" launched the Cannes film festival on Wednesday with laughter and applause from notoriously hard-to-please critics.
But despite his fame and success with movies like "Manhattan," "Annie Hall" and "Sweet and Lowdown," the 75-year-old director says he doesn't consider himself an artist.
"I have never considered myself as an artist," Allen told the UK newspaper The Guardian. "I have aspired to be one, but I have never felt that I have the depth, substance or the gifts to be an artist."
