Woody Allen digs up old feud with Warren Beatty

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Woody Allen rarely plays his cards so everyone can see them. But in this week’s New Yorker, Allen serves up a rare insight into his own personal slights. In “Will the Real Avatar Please Stand Up?” Woody dredges up his old feud with Warren Beatty.

In case you weren’t here in the early 1970s: Woody was with Diane Keaton, and lost her to Warren. The story is then told in 1977’s “Annie Hall” of how Alvy brings Annie to Hollywood and is trumped by the slimy Tony Lacey (played by Paul Simon) character.

There’s more: Warren then makes “Reds,” (1981) with all its “witnesses” in a documentary style. Woody retaliates by making “Zelig,” a sly parody of “Reds” and Warren that should have had “You’re So Vain” playing in the background. “Zelig” is full of–yes!–”witnesses” who parody Warren’s. Of course, “Zelig” is funnier than “Reds.”

    My question is why Diane Keaton was ever with such a self-possessed nerd like Woody. Warren Beatty has his faults, too, but he’s just some @#*! better looking than Woody Allen.
