Rising star Scarlett Johansson has worked with Woody Allen on three movies now, but “she’s not my muse,” the veteran director said Sunday.

“Scarlett is a wonderful actress, she reverberates off anyone she plays with, and she has a great future ahead of her,” Allen told a news conference. “But I never think of her as my muse.”

Asked to compare Johansson with longtime film partner Diane Keaton, Allen said: “There’s a very strong chemistry between Diane and myself,” noting that they acted in “eight or nine” films together.

Allen and Johansson acted together in Scoop (2006), and she appears in his 2005 film Match Point.

A drama set in Barcelona starring Johansson was finished “five days ago,” and does not have a title yet, Allen said.
