Mariel Hemingway memoir describes the time she told Woody Allen she wouldn't go to Paris with him
Mariel Hemingway and Woody Allen will always have Manhattan. But they won’t have Paris.
In a new memoir, Out Came the Sun, due April 7, Hemingway, who was only 16 years old when she starred as Allen’s much-younger girlfriend in the 1979 romance Manhattan, writes that her director developed a crush and pursued her to take a trip with him to Paris after she turned 18. He flew to her parents’ home in Idaho to visit, and Hemingway was counting on them to put an end to any travel plans for Allen and their teenage daughter. According to an exclusive excerpt on FoxNews.com, she explained to her parents ”that I didn’t know what the arrangement was going to be, that I wasn’t sure if I was even going to have my own room. Woody hadn’t said that. He hadn’t even hinted it. But I wanted them to put their foot down. They didn’t. They kept lightly encouraging me.”
