The LOST IN TRANSLATION star, who was Golden Globe nominated last week (ends16DEC05) for her role in Allen's new film Match Point, admits she's never had so much fun on a film set because the director made sure no one worked longer than 12 hours a day.
She says, "He shoots 10 or 12 hours a day and he won't shoot past a certain time because it interferes with his dinner reservations.
"I never saw Woody off set when we were shooting in London because he was so busy trying out restaurants. I think he went to 87 restaurants, or something, when we were there."
Instead of shooting and reshooting scenes day and night, Johansson found herself with a lot of time off: "I went to the Tate Modern museum about five times. There's plenty of shopping to be done in London - unfortunately for my accountant.
"I would go out to the theatre or go to restaurants. I have family there."
