How to use woody in a sentence?

  1. Woody Allen:

    I never read anything about me, these interviews I do, anything. I said everything I had to say about that whole issue in the New York Times, i have moved so far past it. I never think about it. I work. I said I was never going to comment on it again. I said everything I have to say about it. When asked by Variety if he ’ll ever read the piece, Woody Allen responded with a lengthy answer — that compared a son’s indictment of his father to a bad review.

  2. Bob Dylan:

    I'm glad that my archives, which have been collected all these years, have finally found a home and are to be included with the works of Woody Guthrie... To me, it makes a lot of sense and it's a great honor.

  3. Ian Shoales:

    Sigmund Freud was a half baked Viennese quack. Our literature, culture, and the the films of Woody Allen would be better today if Freud had never written a word.

  4. Timothee Chalamet:

    I have been asked in a few recent interviews about my decision to work on a film with Woody Allen last summer, i ’m not able to answer the question directly because of contractual obligations.

  5. Matthew Goodman:

    As Woody Allen said, either 80 or 85 percent of life is showing up. And in the Indo-Pacific, that's definitely true, if you show up, you're given praise, whatever you actually say or do. If you don't show up, it's a real problem.
