In news that surely has Ronan Farrow pissed he didn’t break first, we’re finding out Woody Allen may have spent most of his forties in an icky relationship with a girl young enough to be his daughter. In other news, the sky is blue. Anyone who saw Manhattan where Woody plays a 42-year-old who dates a 17-year-old (played by Mariel Hemmingway who said Woody tried to date her back then) has probably been wondering post-Soon-Yi Previn how close to reality that movie was. Today, we got confirmation from a woman named Babi Christina Engelhardt that the movie may as well been called “My Life With Woody.”
The Hollywood Reporter sat down with Babi Christina Engelhardt, who now goes by Christina, to get her story. Christina was only 16 in 1976 when she ran into Woody at Elaine’s, which was a New York City power lunch spot in the 1970s. Per Christina, she went over to Woody’s table and dropped him a note with her phone number that also read, “Since you’ve signed enough autographs, here’s mine!” I mean, that’s totally what I would do if I ever ran into a Hemsworth brother, but it was icky for such an exchange to happen then since she was underage, and Woody was in his early 40s and fresh from success filming Sleeper. Hell, Annie Hall hadn’t even come out yet!
