Hollywood A-listers rejected Woody Allen

Woody AllenWoody Allen has revealed to Empire magazine that several top Hollywood actors have turned down opportunities to star in his films. “There are plenty of actors and actresses that have said – even after saying ‘I’m dying to work with you so I’d do anything’ – that they’re not available or they can’t work for the pay I’m offering because they have a chance to make a movie for $8 million or $10 million and they need the money.” He added: “For Deconstructing Harry I tried to get [Robert] De Niro, I tried to get [Dustin] Hoffman, I tried to get Elliot Gould.” Allen also named Jack Nicholson and Tom Hanks as having turned down roles in The Curse Of The Jade Scorpion.

    It’s probably kinda hard to concentrate on acting wwhen being directed by a man who is romantically involved with the foster child that his ex-wife adopted and he raised as his own daughter. I wonder when the exact moment was that he decided, “Damn, she’s HOT!!??!!”
    Actually, I do not want to know.

    I can’t imagine De Niro, Hoffman, Nicholson or Hanks turning down his films because they need more money. They’re all loaded.

    Woody – Do you really think that these talented actors really turned you down because you didn’t offer enough money?!? Wow! That’s one nice fantasy world that you live in. One where you think everyone wants to work with an-almost pedophile. Maybe those actors just have more of a conscience? Hmmmmm …

    Mariah Carey has great legs and would enhance any Allen film.

    Woody Allen is a disgusting pervert. His career is over because everyone knows what a SICKO he is. That’s why no one wants to be in his movies. Get real Woody Allen. You are a pig who should be put in prison! And your movies suck, too.
