Emma Stone and Joaquin Phoenix Premiere ‘Irrational Man’ in Los Angeles
After the premiere screening at the Writer’s Guild Theater, guests gathered at Hakkasan Beverly Hills to mingle and toast the debut, where they enjoyed signature SVEDKA cocktails featuring SVEDKA’s new Grapefruit Jalapeno flavor.
The Aloha actress first met the director when he requested a meeting about his last movie, 2014’s Magic in the Moonlight.
Allen says he’d seen her in “one of those young people’s movies” while exercising on his treadmill and thought, “My God, this girl is remarkable.” The meeting lasted four minutes. “I don’t even think I took off my coat,” Stone says. When she showed up on set, she says, she was “absolutely convinced I was going to be fired.”
“It’s terrifying,” she adds. “He doesn’t do table reads or any rehearsal. You can’t even ask questions about your character, because he’ll be like: ‘You know this is a movie, right?’ ” Says Allen: “I never talk to any of the actors in any of my movies about anything if I can avoid it.”
