It's Lonely at the Top: Woody Allen Writes Spoof Diary

The International Herald Tribune, global arm of the New York Times, is running a farcical piece by Woody Allen about the filming of Vicky Cristina Barcelona.


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.

The rest of the diary is funny too, and worth the time of your morning coffee.

On another Vicky Cristina Barcelona note, last month Allen was interviewed by Scott Foundas of the Village Voice and had this to say. As most readers know, the film opened to great reviews, not that that, if you read the interview, means anything. But if said reviews do mean something to you, GSF recommends Julissa Trevino's concise and thoughtful response to the film.
