I'm not Woody Allen's muse: Emma Stone

London: Actress Emma Stone does not think she is Woody Allen's "muse" but says the label has been attached to her just because she's a woman.

The "Birdman" star has been labelled as the 79-year-old legendary director's inspiration but she insists it is only because she is a woman, reported Guardian online. "I don't think he would agree with the muse idea. There were two films in a row where the characters, for whatever reason, he wanted me to play them. He's working with different people now. (This just) gets attached to the women," she said.

The 26-year-old beauty also hit back at claims she is regularly paired with older men in his films.

"(Starring alongside Joaquin Phoenix) was a pretty big draw... He's a truly brilliant actor. Just to speak solely of 'Irrational Man', the relationship is genuinely a plot point. It's pretty openly discussed in the film that this is a student who is falling in love with her professor, and she wants to bring this intelligence and almost toxic energy into her life."
