Woody Allen has nominated Cate Blanchett and Reese Witherspoon as two actresses he’d be keen to work with in the future.
‘These are two actresses that I would like to work with, because I think they’re both very talented,’ Allen said.
‘But I don’t know them. I’ve never had the opportunity to speak with them.’
Allen was in Cannes where his latest tale You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger premiered on Saturday.
He missed Blanchett by only a couple of days: she was at Cannes on Thursday for Robin Hood, in which she stars with Russell Crowe.
Allen’s new film features Naomi Watts, Anthony Hopkins, Antonio Banderas, Josh Brolin, Gemma Jones and Freida Pinto.
