Last night saw London be the latest city to hold a red carpet event for Blue Jasmine, the newest film written and directed by Woody Allen. As usual, Allen himself was not in attendance but stars Cate Blanchett and Sally Hawkins made it down to Leicester Square.
None of Allen’s extensive British alumni made it out. But the wonderful Richard E Grant did, so we’ve included a photo of him.
The event was followed as usual by a Q&A. The Telegraph captured some quotes from the two stars.
I’d heard that and I thought, ‘God, we’re going to work really quickly.’ But Sally and I found that we got the courage to ask for another go at it.
Because Jasmine is somebody who’s breaking a lot, and I wanted to make sure I gave Woody enough options in the editing room. So if I put it that way, then he’d often let us go again.
He’s very direct! Very honest. He doesn’t suffer fools. He has no time! There’s no time, in his mind. But I love that honesty. He says it like it is, and if it’s not working, he will say something. But more often than not, if you’re doing okay, he will just let you do it. He doesn’t really go in for chit chat.
‘Blue Jasmine‘ will be released in the UK on the 27th September 2013.
