Woody Allen‘s collection of films have depicted human neuroses, evolving relationships, and the randomness of the universe against an often picturesque urban backdrop worthy of your envy. For every male character that’s thought to be a stand-in for Allen’s own self-deprecating New Yorker, there has also been a rotating cast of beautiful women arguably serving as the creator’s muse. How does he do it?
From original inspirations–Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow–to Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz, Allen has the proven ability to land just about any gorgeous au currant actresses in in the prime of her career, including Oscar nominee Cate Blanchett, who plays the titular character in Allen’s latest film, Blue Jasmine. (Despite her lengthy resume, Jasmine marks the first time the actress and the filmmaker have collaborated.) Will her role go down as one of Allen’s greats? Will this be the beginning of a very fruitful partnership? Will Jennifer Lawrence be the next ingenue to hook up with Woody? (Professionally speaking, of course.) Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
