Antonio Banderas has revealed the secret to getting along with screen icon Woody Allen - talk to him about jazz.
The Spanish actor stars in Allen's upcoming film, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger, and admitted that despite being a huge fan of the veteran cinematographer, he found a way not to be intimidated.
"Somebody said he was difficult but that wasn't the case," the 50-year-old said.
"I love working with him. I talked to him a lot. All you have to do is just talk about jazz and he will go on and on."
The Zorro star also recalled how he was starstruck seeing Woody Allen in the flesh.
"When I was 25 years old, I worked in Madrid wearing a t-shirt printed with his face," he said.
"So, being on the set and seeing the same guy on my t-shirt - he is literally the same guy because he wears the same glasses and the same hat - it was quite impressive.
"It was great but weird at the same time."
