Woody Allen was born on December 1, 1935, as Allen Konigsberg, in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 15, he started selling one-liners to gossip columns. After working a while as a stand up comedian, he was hired to write What's New Pussycat (1965) in 1965. He directed his first film a year later, What's Up, Tiger Lily? (1966) in 1966.

  • Named honorary doctor by Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona, Spain (June 2007).
  • The _"Seinfeld" (1990)_ (qv) character George Constanza was originally planned to be a caricature of him.
  • While he has made many films that had several nominations for Best Director and Screenplay, Annie Hall is his only film so far to get a Best Picture nomination, which it then went on to win.
  • According to 'Mia Farrow' (qv)'s biography, "What Falls Away", 'Frank Sinatra' (qv) offered to have Allen's legs broken when he was found to be having an affair with her adopted daughter, 'Soon-Yi Previn' (qv).
  • Although he was granted visitation rights for his son Ronan after a custody battle with 'Mia Farrow' (qv), their relationship is estranged (similar to his other children with Farrow, Moses and 'Dylan O'Sullivan Farrow' (qv)). Ronan stated that he thinks that he cannot have a morally consistent relationship with a man who is his father and his brother-in-law.
  • One of the most prolific American directors of his generation, he has written, directed, and more often than not starred in a film just about every year since 1969.
  • Suspended from New York University.
  • His variety of neuroses include: arachnophobia (spiders), entomophobia (insects), heliophobia (sunshine), cynophobia (dogs), altophobia (heights), demophobia (crowds), carcinophobia (cancer), thanatophobia (death), misophobia (germs). He admits to being terrified of hotel bathrooms.
