Woody Allen Shows Up in LA for To Rome With Love Premiere

The reports were true. Woody Allen actually came to Los Angeles with his wife Soon Yi Previn for the North American premiere of his latest film To Rome With Love at the LA Film Festival. This is a guy who won’t even show for the Oscars.

LA doesn’t seem to be treating him too badly this time around. He was in good spirits last night while introducing the film.

“If you hate it and think it was a waste of time, don’t let me know,” he told the audience last night in full nebbishy glory. “I get depressed easily,”

As for the film itself: quite entertaining. Almost as entertaining as running into lovely Italian newcomer Alessandra Mastronardi, who played Milly in the film, at the after-party. We asked her if she had any more American films lined up.

“Not yet,” she told us. “Fingers crossed.”

Something tells us she’s not going to have any problems. We personally would love to see what she could do in a Tarantino flick.
