Mike Walker reports…. Famed in Gollywood for her workaholic ways — she memorizes every line of every script — Kate Winslet went wobbly when Woody Allen, director of her wacky new “Wonder Wheel” flick, verbally killed a long-ish scene, abruptly barking, “Cut!”
Stunned crew members’ jaws dropped as obsessive Kate, playing a Coney Island waitress, sputtered: “Woody, there are still three pages left to shoot!”
Snarled Cranky Woodman: “Really? And who wrote them?”
Snapped award-worthy Kate: “You did, Woody!”
Sighed My Woody Spy: “The oddball director responded, ‘Well, three pages makes the scene far too long, right?’”
Folks, it don’t get much weirder than that — but I swear on My Gossip Bible the tale’s true … and Wacko Woody’s lengthy lines will now live forever in Kate’s meticulous memory only!
