    Default Woody Allen: 'Religion is Better Than Nothing'‎

    WOODY Allen says having faith in “something” is “better than nothing”.
    The director — who turns 75 today, December 1 — says his new film, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, was influenced by themes such as fortune-telling and religion.
    “I had known people that put their faith in fortune-telling and they were fairly intelligent people except for that weakness. I always thought that was the most ridiculous thing in the world, but then I started to think, ‘Better to have something than nothing,’” he told Total Film magazine.
    “Some people have faith in astrology, in fortune-telling, Catholicism, Judaism; as long as you have something it seemed to me that it was better than nothing.”

    Woody — who is twice-divorced — recently insisted there is no secret recipe to a happy home life, because it’s all down to luck!
    “We think we can control it and we think we know what we’re doing, but it’s largely dependent on luck,” said the movie maker, who has been married to Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his ex-wife Mia Farrow, for the past 13 years.
    “If you’re very lucky, you may just have a happy relationship. And if you’re unlucky, all logical reasons in the world don’t seem to make sense. So you meet somebody, you’re attracted to somebody, and the exquisite neurons in the brain mesh properly and things can be wonderful and things are not like homework.
    “You shouldn’t have to work at your relationship; it’s not like the treadmill. It’s pleasurable. But it’s hard to hit that jackpot and get lucky. You think that you can control it, but it’s not really so.”

    I believe that fucking your adopted daughter is creepy.

    That's what I believe.

    Nothing that came out of his mouth up there made any sense to me.

    And I agree with Grimm.

    I love Woody Allen, fave movies of his were in the 80s. His movies made me think - not an easy thing to do - and I will watch 'Crimes and Misdemeanors' over and over.

    Uh, sorry Woody, you do have to work on relationships. when you don't, you give up and move on to another one. Most people do try to work out their relationships though. It is hard. It isn't all smooth for God's sake. What an ass.
    Oh, I offended you with my opinion? You should hear the ones I keep to myself.

    No, Woody, I wouldn't imagine you'd have to work at a "relationship" with a not very bright child.
