Allen on regrets:
On his bafflement about the success of "Midnight in Paris":
"I would say, I've lived 77 years now, and there have been things in my life that I regret that if I could do over, I would do different. Many things that I think with the perspective of having done them and having time that I would do differently. Maybe even choice of profession. Many things… And I never trust people who say, 'I have no regrets. If I lived my life again, I'd do it exactly the same way.' I wouldn't."
On his priority to entertain over making social/psychological statements:
"I don't know why [audiences, awards] like one and not another. If I could figure it out, I might be able to get rich."
"I'm thinking of entertaining. That I feel is my first obligation. Then, if you can also say something, make a statement or elucidate a character or create emotions in people where they're sad or laughing, that's all extra. But to make a social point or a psychological point without being entertaining is homework. That's lecturing."
"I mean, she's Cate Blanchett, what can you do? You hire her and get out of the way."
