Woody Allen Says Therapy Worked For Him
The legendary filmmaker gets frustrated when people claim years of therapy have failed him, citing his neurotic and anxious personality - because he's convinced it has saved him from a worse fate. And he thinks a long and successful movie career, and a happy marriage with wife Soon Yi, prove him right.
Allen tells New York magazine, "People always tease me. They say, look at you, you went for so much psychoanalysis and you're so neurotic, you wind up marrying a girl so much younger than you. You don't like to go through tunnels. You don't like to stand near the drain in the shower. But I could also say to them, I've had a very productive life. I've worked very hard, I've never fallen prey to depression. I'm not sure I could have done all of that without being in psychoanalysis. People say to me, 'It's just a crutch,' and exactly what I need at this point in my life is a crutch."
