New York, Feb 7 : Hollywood director Woody Allen wants actress Scarlett Johansson to be a devoted actress like Meryl Streep and not go the "the Page Six party route."
The director, who has worked with Johansson in "Match Point" and many other movies, said that the actress can do wonders for her career if she avoids the party route.
She is "so beautiful and so sexy and so gifted . . . she can do anything, but she has to make the right choices of films and she's got to not go the Page Six party route," New York Post quoted Allen, as telling Maclean's magazine.
He added: "I don't want to read about her in the paper with this boyfriend or that boyfriend, or in rehab or taking pills."
He expanded his opinion of her roles and said that she is not quite good in making choices for herself and should rather follow the footsteps of successful actresses like Meryl Streep.
"I don't think she's always made great choices. She has to take her acting seriously . . . the way someone like Meryl Streep did it," he said.
