Woody Allen 'too shy' to audition actresses
Woody Allen dreads holding auditions because he's "too shy" to meet Hollywood bombshells, opting instead to cast actresses he has seen in other movies.
The filmmaker admits he hired Rachel McAdams for his latest movie, "Midnight In Paris," after admiring her performance in "Wedding Crashers."
And when the director does meet up with potential leading ladies, he keeps their meetings short and sweet.
Allen tells W magazine, "Casting is so awkward. I'm too shy to meet them. 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 to see that the woman I saw on the DVD is still intact ...
"I have great adoration and lust and interest in all of the women in my films. It would thrill me to go out with all of them."
