In an interview with The Guardian, improbably prolific writer/director Woody Allen talked “exclusively about sex, antisemitism, the impact of that abuse allegation – and his dream of racing Usain Bolt.” Sounds fun, doesn’t it?

Hey, remember when Amber Heard decided she would send all of that settlement money from her ‘stache of an ex Johnny Depp to charity?

You’ll be glad to hear that Woody Allen sleeps great. “Like a dead person,” he told the Hollywood Reporter, in a recent interview out today.
