Despite numerous attempts to thwart the release of his memoir, Apropos of Nothing, Woody Allen, still managed to find a publisher. And since the book’s release in late March, one person willing to admit that they not only bought it but actually enjoyed reading it is Larry David. Oh, but that’s not all.
While quarantined at home, Larry talked to The New York Times and said he’s been reading Woody’s latest offering, and laughing his tits off in the process. In fact, he’s SO enjoying the book, that it has completely changed any misgivings he might have had about his former co-worker (Woody directed Larry in the 2009 film, Whatever Works).
“Yeah, it’s pretty great, it’s a fantastic book, so funny,” David explained. “You feel like you’re in the room with him and yeah, it’s just a great book and it’s hard to walk away after reading that book thinking that this guy did anything wrong.”
Feel like you’re in a room with him? Err, if you’re an underage girl, DO NOT read this book. The Saturday Night Live Bernie Sanders also said that the real Bernie Sanders should drop out of the race since he’s too far behind. So Larry’s PR team can go ahead and cross “make bread” off of their list of the one thing to do this week in quarantine, because they’ll be too busy dealing with the flame balls of shit thrown at them by Bernie Bros., as well as the hate he’ll get for propping up Woody as an innocent saint.
It should be worth mentioning that, in the memoir, Woody goes into gross detail about not only his affair with Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his then-wife, Mia Farrow, but he also addresses the molestation accusations made by his own adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow. Needless to say, Woody maintains his “total” innocence. I mean, this book already sounds like a laugh a minute, right?
Larry stopped short of saying that he’d work with Woody again, but if you’re stupid enough to imply that, in 2020, Woody Allen seems like a great and misunderstood guy, you’ve pretty much said it all. I can’t wait to see how this turns out…
