Woody Allen was so infatuated with Penelope Cruz on the set of Vicky Cristina Barcelona, he was reduced to a stuttering mess in her presence.
Allen wrote a part in the movie specially for Cruz after watching her in Volver – and was star-struck by her beauty.
Scarlett Johansson – who also stars in the film – says: “Of course Woody was so unbelievably enamoured of her. He’d be like ‘Uh-uh-uh P-Penelope, P-Penelope.’ You’d think, ‘You are such a stuttering fool, man. Just get your stuff together.’ But what can you do – he’s an appreciator of fine things, and Penelope is quite fine.”
