Ronan Farrow, Woody Allen’s Estranged Son, Serves Up Epic Diss On Father’s Day

Just in case you are unclear about the sordid back story, Ronan Farrow is the 24-year-old biological son (who was accepted to Yale Law at 15) of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow. Woody famously left Mia for their adopted daughter — and Ronan’s adopted sister — Soon-Yi. I particularly like the fact that Mia retweeted…

What Are We Thinking About Woody Allen’s New Rom-Com, “To Rome With Love”?

In my opinion, Woody Allen films are hit or miss. I either love them or hate them. I was personally a big fan of “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” and “Midnight In Paris.” “To Rome With Love” looks like it may be another quirky winner with an all-star cast. It follows several characters on their romantic escapade…

Nerd Girl Porn: Men Who Are “Old Guy Hot”

Woody Allen is not most people’s idea of a pin-up. But Diane Keaton, who starred in Woody’s iconic films “Annie Hall” and “Manhattan,” says their romance blossomed over her attraction to his “great body.” (For his part, Diane says Woody fell for her because “he loved neurotic girls.” How … sweet?) In the 65-year-old actress’ memoir,…

The Many Glasses Of Woody Allen

I always assumed the original nerd boyfriend Woody Allen wore the same glasses in movie after movie. But alas, there are subtle differences. Maybe in 50 years someone can replicate this chart with Lady Gaga’s hair? [World of Wonder]…

15 Most Memorable Actresses From Woody Allen Movies

In a 45-year career that’s been filled with screwball comedies, touching love stories and the occasional serious drama, there’s one thing that’s been a constant in Woody Allen’s filmography: his love for the ladies.

“My heart is in it more when I’m writing for women,” Allen said once in an interview, and he’s certainly…

Woody Allen Wants Proof Actresses Haven’t “Gained 200 Pounds” Before Casting Them

“Casting is so awkward. I’m too shy to meet [actresses]. I have the women come in and I don’t let them sit down. I make up some questions, but I couldn’t care less about chatting. I only see them to make sure that they haven’t gained 200 pounds or had five face jobs. I want…

Woody Allen Caught Ogling Rachel McAdams

The best photographers capture an unexpected, unscripted moment. Like when Woody Allen focused his gaze on Rachel McAdams’ chesticles at a screening of his new movie, “Midnight in Paris.” Click! The look on his face is an added bonus. [New York City, 5/17/11]…

Woody And Scarlett Have A Beach Day

Woody Allen and Scarlett Johansson spent a fake day at a fake beach for their 2006 New York magazine story. Perhaps Scarlett’s close relationship with Woody led to her breakup with Ryan Reynolds? We’re sure Woody hopes that’s true. [Touch Puppet]…

Good news, Roman Polanski, a man who cheated on his partner with her adopted daughter is on your side!

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are reportedly donezo. Though nothing has been officially confirmed and the couple was seen together earlier this week, it would be a slightly shocking breakup, mostly for the alleged claim that Rihanna is JT’s other woman.

We’ve gotten used to seeing Scarlett Johansson play the beautiful femme fatale in recent Woody Allen movies. In his newest film, set to begin production next year, we’ll see another familiar face in that role: First Lady of France, Carla Bruni. On a trip to Paris earlier this year, the legendary filmmaker offered Bruni a…

American Apparel Goes On The Defensive In Woody Allen Suit

Last year, Woody Allen filed a $10 million lawsuit against American Apparel for using a photo of him dressed as a Hasidic Jew from his rom-com “Annie Hall” without his permission. The image was put on billboards in Hollywood and New York, but according to the company, they were only up for one week. Alle…

Marriage: Who Should Really Be Banned

Last night, I went to bed proud to be an American! But this afternoon, other issues on the ballot, like Proposition 8, made me extra blue, and not in the cool way. Sadly, some of our fellow Americans in California, Arizona, and Florida think they have the right to discriminate against homosexual love and ba…

We See Chick Flicks: Vicky Cristina Barcelona

Starring Rebecca Hall, Scarlett Johansson, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem
Written and Directed by Woody Allen

Woody Allen is a hit or miss type of genius – critics loved Annie Hall and Match Point, but hated Cassandra’s Dream and Melinda and Melinda. His movies either blow your mind or make you feel like you’ve…

Penelope Cruz & Scarlett Johansson Get Their Smooch On

Oh Woody Allen, you perv. The director’s newest project, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, stars his current muse, Scarlett Johansson, alongside Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. By the looks of the new trailer, the film features much, much hotness, including a kiss between Johansson and Cruz. Let’s hope this movie is actually good.

Woody Allen Beats Off American Apparel

American Apparel is known for perverse ads which feature their scantily dressed female employees. Although, CEO Dov Charney has already been sued by some of his former employees, he believes in equal opportunity, or so he said in a deposition tape, “I frequently drop my pants to show people my new product.” Vomit. But now…

Weekly Hottie Sandwich: Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell

There’s enough meat to open a New York City delicatessen in Woody Allen’s newest film Cassandra’s Dream which stars Ewan McGregor and Colin Farrell. (Now that’s a manwich!)
