Banderas: Woody Allen is a legend

Antonio Banderas has admitted he was starstruck working with Woody Allen.
The actor, who stars in Woody's latest work You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger, said he used to be a massive fan of the legendary director before he hit the big time - and even had a t-shirt bearing his face.
He gushed: "One has to realise that in 1985 I was wearing a t-shirt with Woody Allen's face, with a little cap and his glasses. When I arrived at the set and saw him exactly the same way, I couldn't believe it. It was like working with a legend."
Antonio admitted he was initially apprehensive about working with the director.
He said: "I went with some trepidation, because they have told me he was cold with actors, that he didn't tell them much.
"But for me he was a source of information. What I would do is go and ask him and the very moment I pressed that button, he would give me all the information I asked for.
"He created a fantastic atmosphere in the set. I liked his logic a lot."
