Woody Allen has two daughters with wife Soon-Yi Previn
Woody Allen says his daughters are
not very impressed by his filmmaking career.
The 77-year-old filmmaker, who has two adolescent
daughters Bechet Dumaine and Manzie Tio with wife Soon-Yi
Previn, said his children are not interested in watching
movies made by him.
"My children have expressly said: 'Dad, you are such a
loser.' I am quoting directly there. They are totally
unimpressed with what I do, or by me. I've made 45 movies or
so, and I think one of the girls has seen two of them, and
that's it," Allen said.
"They go to the movies with their friends and see the
drivel that their peer group watches. You know they're nice
kids but they have no interest in me. They see me as an idiot
savant who can make films but can't change his typewriter
ribbon," he added.
The Oscar-winning filmmaker is well known for his hit
movie like Annie Hall, Manhattan, Hannah and Her
Sisters and Midnight in Paris among others.
