Woody Allen - Woody Allen In The Dark About Penelope Cruz's Foreign Language Scenes

Director Woody Allen still has no clue what Latin stars Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem are saying in his 2008 movie Vicky Cristina Barcelona because he doesn't speak a word of Spanish.
The filmmaker allowed the actors to improvise with the script for the romantic comedy/drama and converse in their native language, but he didn't bother to find out exactly what they were talking about on screen - and remains completely clueless to this day.
Cruz tells W magazine, "He gave us the script he wrote in English, and he gave us the freedom to translate and improvise. Woody told me recently that he still doesn't know if we are talking about the atomic bomb."
The performance won the Spanish beauty the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress, so Allen decided to put his faith in her again while shooting his latest movie To Rome with Love.
She says, "It's the same thing in To Rome With Love - he doesn't speak Italian. I translated my lines. So he still doesn't know what I am saying."
