Woody Allen: ‘I’ll Probably Die On A Film Set

Woody Allen has no plans to retire from the film industry anytime soon.
The 83-year-old director spoke about his six-decade career at a press conference in San Sebastian, Spain on Tuesday. And in response to a question about the professional difficulties he is experiencing over the long-running controversy around his alleged prior sexual misconduct, which he has consistently denied, the star confessed retirement was never an option.
“My philosophy, since I started many years ago in show business, is that no matter what happens is to keep focused on my work,” the Annie Hall director shared. “No matter what happens in my life with my wife, children, current events, politics or illness, I focus on my work and that’s all that really absorbs my time and effort seven days a week. I deal mostly with human relations, people and comedy. So I don’t think of retiring.”
The star has continuously refuted accusations of child molestation by his daughter Dylan Farrow, who he adopted with actress Mia Farrow. But the star insisted he’d rather die making movies than quit Hollywood.
“I never think of retiring. It’s not just something that has occurred to me,” he added. “I’ll probably die in the midst of setting a film shot one day on the set, making a movie.”
