Emma Stone intimidated by Woody Allen

Emma Stone was intimidated by Woody Allen on the set of 'Magic in the Moonlight'.
The 25-year-old actress stars in the legendary director's latest project and she's confessed that working under his direction was nerve-racking because the cast weren't given time to get comfortable with him.
She said: ''It was hugely intimidating. I think after a while you get your sea legs a little bit, but there's no rehearsal process, there's no real getting-to-know Woody at all. You are just terrified. It's all cold.''
'The Amazing Spider-Man' star - who claims Allen ''goes to great lengths'' to keep his scripts under wraps - didn't even meet with the director before she was offered the part.
Stone told Collider: ''I didn't physically see him. He didn't pull me into any room and he wasn't there when I read the script. Someone gave me the script. His assistant gave me the script and I read it, gave it back to her and then left.''
The flamed haired beauty stars as a young woman who claims she can tell the future and communicate with the dead in the film, while her co-star Colin Firth takes on the role of a renowned illusionist tasked with the exposure of Stone's characters ''lies'', and he admits he also felt nervous around Allen.
Quizzed on whether the cast prepared for the film together, he said: We clung to each other! Nothing brings you closer together than blind terror.''
