Actress Amanda Peet was terrified working under director Woody Allen on his latest movie, because she was convinced he wanted to fire her.

She says, "I was terrified that I was going to get fired. He's quiet and I'm needy, so it's difficult. And I'm in love with his films and have been obsessed with him for ages.

"So you have the euphoria for a moment when you get the role, followed by panic.
