Random Acts: Audrey Fleurot scares Woody Allen

Karlsson in Engrenages

It’s the turn of Audrey Fleurot to be a bit random this week by scaring Woody Allen so much he edited her out of his latest film, Midnight in Paris.  

“Tous mes potes pensent que je suis mythomane”, explique-t-elle à Télérama. “Sur le plateau, c’était étrange. Je suis allée dire bonjour à Woody Allen, il a fait un bond de deux mètres en arrière comme si je l’avais violé.”

“All my friends think I’m a pathological liar. On set, it was strange. I went to say hello to Woody Allen and he jumped back two metres as though I’d violated him.”
