Actress Penelope Cruz says “hypochondriac” Woody Allen has a calming effect on her.
The 38-year-old has been reunited with the legendary director for his next film – “To Rome with Love” – and she enjoys the way he takes her mind off difficult scenes with his own worries.
“He is such a hypochondriac, I have to laugh at him. In ‘Vicky Cristina Barcelona’ on the day Scarlett Johansson and I were to share a screen kiss, he had to leave the set to go to see a dermatologist because he had just seen a new freckle that morning.”
“I said, ‘Why don’t you go this evening when we have finished shooting?’ He said, ‘It might be too late by then.’ That made me so laugh so much, I couldn’t be nervous about the kissing scene,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Cruz as saying.
