Finicky Woody Allen


Spanish actress Penelope Cruz says that director Woody Allen was unfazed by her steamy on-screen kiss with Scarlett Johansson in Vicky Cristina Barcelona because he was more interested in a worrying “mark” on his hand. Cruz and Johansson lip lock in Allen’s new movie, but the director didn’t pay much attention to the scene because he was distracted, reports Cruz said, “He could not care less about our kissing scene. When we would ask him about it, he was more interested in a new mark, which had appeared on his hand and was worrying him. He even stopped shooting so he could go to the doctor and get it checked out. We all had to wait around for him to come back.” Cruz reveals that when Allen came back, he was still too distracted to properly oversee the seductive scene. She added, “On his return, I tried to discuss the scene with him again and he started complaining about the doctor who had said there was nothing wrong with him.”
