Next to being a Bond Girl, being a Woody Allen Girl is one of the highest cinematic honors there is. The beloved maestro averages about a movie per year, meaning he has the chance to work with a number of different comely young starlets ― which sometimes gets them Oscar attention, and at the very least gives them the bragging rights to say they worked with Woody Allen.
In fact, the list of hot young A-list ingénues Woody Allen hasn’t worked with might be shorter than the list of those he has, considering he’s now coming up on five decades as a writer/director who has never taken much of a break. Rumor has it the man with exquisite taste in talented women is eyeing Emma Stone for the female lead of his next project.
Woody’s next film is Blue Jasmine, starring Alec Baldwin, Cate Blanchett, and Louis C.K., due this July. But the prolific filmmaker is already thinking about casting his 2014 film, an untitled comedy that, as usual with Woody, we won’t know much about story-wise until it’s here.

Here’s what we can (almost surely) tell you: Emma will play a winsome beauty who charms the pants off some neurotic guy with her intelligence, charm, beauty, and quirky sense of humor. Because it’s hard to think of a Woody Allen film in which the plot wasn’t some variation on that. (Not that we’re complaining!)
We do hope Woody resists the urge to cast himself as the romantic lead, though he seems to be weaning himself off that habit in his later years. He’s been known to live out his presumable fantasies by romancing many beauties in his films, often much younger than he is.

So will this be a one-off for Emma, or will she become a repeat offender in Woody Allen comedies? Actresses like Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow, Dianne Wiest, and Scarlett Johansson have serves as muses for Woody, and we can definitely see Emma right up there in that company. We can't think of a more perfect choice for Woody's new leading lady, in fact.
Like many actresses, Emma is a longtime Woody fan, even naming her dog after his character Alvy in Annie Hall. Now it's possible she might get the real Woody to lick her all over... though, again, we're hoping it doesn't come to that.
Do you think Emma could be Woody's next muse?
