Diane Keaton: Working with Woody Allen is a privilege

Diane Keaton thinks working with Woody Allen is a "privilege".

The 69-year-old actress stars alongside the legendary filmmaker in the award-winning movie 'Annie Hall', among others, and has admitted it was a pleasure to work with Woody.

She said: "He gave me everything.

"It was a privilege to be in those films with him. I've never seen anybody more disciplined."

Diane also revealed what she learned from working with the New York-born movie star.

She told AARP The Magazine: "For him, work is an art form. Work really is the answer to so many problems, and it's a form of play, too, that you take very seriously and keep trying to expand.

"That's something I learned from Woody."

Last month, Cate Blanchett - who starred in the Allen-directed 'Blue Jasmine' - revealed he said she was "awful" while making the film.

She recalled: "The first day was brutal. He came up to me said, 'This is awful and you're awful'. As if he were talking about someone else, some other actress and that maybe I could go and have a word with her.

"And then three weeks later it turned out that he didn't like the costumes, he didn't like the locations, he didn't like the scene. He said, 'You've got to help me rescue this movie.'"
