Cate Blanchett, Reese Witherspoon. Woody Allen wants you!
Most actors dream about working for Woody Allen, but there are two about whom the director fantasizes when considering film roles: Cate Blanchett and Reese Witherspoon.
Allen is at the Cannes film festival this weekend premiering his new movie, “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.” He spoke to reporters after Saturday morning press screenings, and when asked if he wrote screenplays with actors in mind, Allen was quick to say, no. He said that for the most part, he writes his screenplay then comes up with actors who may be good for the roles.
But Allen did say that he had always wanted to work with Blanchett and Witherspoon. “I think they are very talented,” he said, in a rather simple explanation.
So, Cate and Reese, if you are reading this, have your people call his.
