人物傳記 

The Amazing Woody Allen 無人能敵的伍迪•艾倫




From the man himself comes the words, "My one regret in life is that I am not someone else." However, if this man were truly someone else, then the world would not have laughed along with Woody Allen and his unique sense of humor. Born on December 1, 1935 with the name Allen Stewart Konigsberg, Woody Allen is an American actor, director, screenwriter1, and comedian2. His life off-screen3 is just as remarkable as his on-screen one.

  Allen came from a middle-class Jewish family in New York City. At the age of 17, he started writing gags4 for famous comedians. In 1953, Allen attended New York University and studied film before he dropped out to pursue a writing career and later stand-up comedy5. Oddly enough, it was comedy that brought Allen back to writing and directing films.

  Allen has also had many romantic relationships, most of them with his leading ladies6, including Diane Keaton and Mia Farrow. However, Allen brought a lot of attention on himself when he married Soon-Yi Previn, who was Farrow's adopted daughter from Korea. To know more about the man, you just have to watch his movies.

這名男子自己坦言:『我這輩子只有一個遺憾,那就是我不是別人。』然而這名男子若真是別人的話,那這個世界就無法跟著伍迪•艾倫和他獨特的幽默感一起歡笑了。伍迪•艾倫於1935年十二月一日出生,本名為艾倫•史都華•康尼斯堡,他是一位美國演員兼導演、編劇及諧星。而他在螢光幕後的生活就和螢光幕前一樣引人注目。

  艾倫來自紐約市一個中產階級的猶太家庭。他在十七歲時就開始為知名諧星撰寫笑梗。艾倫於1953年進入紐約大學攻讀電影,隨後卻放棄學業轉而追求寫作生涯,然後再從事單人脫口秀。奇怪的是,讓艾倫又重回編寫及執導電影這一行的竟終究還是喜劇。

  艾倫也有過多段感情,所交往的對象大多是在他電影中擔綱女主角的演員,其中包括黛安•基頓和米亞•法羅。不過,艾倫卻因為娶了法羅的韓國養女順宜為妻這件事而使自己備受矚目。想要更進一步瞭解這位仁兄,您只要看他的電影就成。
