Emma Stone intimidated by Woody Allen

Jul 24 2014, 12:02am CDT | by

Emma Stone has confessed she felt intimidated by Woody Allen while working under his direction on 'Magic in the Moonlight', in which she stars alongside Colin Firth.

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.''

Who Would Bill Murray Cast in All- Female Ghostbusters?

Sep 9 2014 10:43am CDT | Source: movie fanatic

When we reported last month about an all-female Ghostbusters happening as a reboot, we had to wonder what some of the original stars of the film thought of the idea. Now, we know. Bill Murray was at the Toronto Film Festival, promoting his work on St. Vincent (and enjoying Bill Murray day) and he was asked by The Star that very question. "Melissa (McCarthy) would be a spectacular Ghostbuster,” Murray ...
