London, February 7 (ANI): Actress Rebecca Hall strongly believes that all the things she has heard about legendary filmmaker Woody Allen's eccentric behaviour are "nonsense".
The British star has filmed Golden Globe Award-winning and Oscar-nominated Vicky Cristina Barcelona with Allen.
She has revealed that initially she was wary of working with Allen after hearing tales of his bizarre antics onset.
However, she later realised that the Annie Hall director was often the victim of his own legend.
"Woody's mythology as something of an eccentric on set precedes him. You have to just ignore all the crazy stories, things like: don't look him directly in the eye; don't expect him to talk to you ever," the Daily Express quoted her as telling Britain's GQ magazine.
"I was told that the script, or at least my part of it, would arrive with a bodyguard and lawyer, both of whom would have to remain with it at all times. All nonsense, of course. It arrived by post in a brown envelope - complete - with a handwritten note saying simply, 'Read this, I think you'll make a great Vicky. Tell me what you think. Best wishes, Woody,'" she added. (ANI)
