Watch: Emma Stone Doesn’t Want To Go In New Clip From Woody Allen’s ‘Irrational Man’

Watch: Emma Stone Doesn't Want To Go In New Clip From Woody Allen's 'Irrational Man'

Woody Allen‘s latest, “Irrational Man,” debuted this past week at Cannes and response was mostly mild. There were certainly no raves, and our critic mostly loathed it, but for the director, the movie is already way behind him at this point.

“….sometimes I come out with a film and nobody wants to see it. But it doesn’t matter to me. I’m already working on another film and having the enjoyment of that and maybe that film a lot of people will come and see, but then I’m on the next one anyway,” Allen recently told Deadline. “….when I started making films, I realized the fun in the film is not that it’s well-reviewed or that people line up and see it or it’s heartbreaking if they don’t or you’re a great hero if you win an award. All that stuff is nonsense. If it’s not fun when you’re spending the three months writing the film, and then three months shooting the film and the three months editing… if that comprises most of your year and it’s not fun, then why do it? It’s fun for me. I’m in contact with beautiful women and charming guys and art directors and costumes and Cole Porter’s music…it’s a wonderful way to earn a living.”

Guess I can’t argue with that. Anyway, with “Irrational Man” gearing up for release this summer, another new clip has landed, this time centering on Emma Stone, who has to explain to her boyfriend that she has zero interest in Joaquin Phoenix. Spoiler: she kinda does.

“Irrational Man” opens on July 17th.
