Private life does not resonate in my movies: Woody Allen
Filmmaker Woody Allen says there is no connection between his movies he make and his personal life.
Los Angeles: Filmmaker Woody Allen says there is no connection between his movies he make and his personal life.
The 79-year-old ‘Annie Hall’ director, whose films have been read by viewers as thinly veiled takes on his real life, said audience come to watch his films because they want to and not because of his private life, reported Entertainment Weekly.
"I never see any evidence of anything in my private life resonating in film. If I come out with a film people want to see they flock to see it, which means they see it to degree of 'Manhattan' or 'Annie Hall' or 'Midnight in Paris'.
"That's my outer limits. If I come out with a film they don't want to see, they don't come," he said.
Allen, who was accused of sexually abusing Dylan Farrow when she was a child, said such claims did not affect how audiences viewed his body of work.
"I always had a small audience. People did not come in great abundance and they still don't, and I've maintained the same audience over the years. If the reviews are bad, they don't come. If the reviews are good, they probably come," he said.
