The New York Times has published a excerpts from the diary that writer/director Woody Allen kept while shooting his latest film Vicki Christina Barcelona in Spain. Here’s one short extract-
Offered role to Scarlett Johansson. Said before she could accept, script must be approved by her agent, then by her mother, with whom she’s close. Following that it must be approved by her agent’s mother. In middle of negotiation she changed agents — then changed mothers. She’s gifted but can be a handful.
Needless to say, the style of the whole piece harkens back to Allen’s short stories and essays he wrote in the 1960s and 70s which were collected in the books Getting Even, Without Feathers and Side Effects. A fun, Friday afternoon read.
