HOT FROM HOLLYWOOD

Love and luck


Two-time divorcee Woody Allen thinks he finally has love worked out. The 74-year-old Manhattan director believes there is no secret recipe to a happy home life. Instead it's all down to luck. “We think we can control it and we think we know what we're doing, but it's largely dependent on luck,” says Woody, who has been married to Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of his ex-wife Mia Farrow, for the past 13 years. “If you're very lucky, you may just have a happy relationship. And if you're unlucky, all logical reasons in the world don't seem to make sense. So you meet somebody, you're attracted to somebody, and the exquisite neurons in the brain mesh properly and things can be wonderful and things are not like homework. You shouldn't have to work at your relationship; it's not like the treadmill. It's pleasurable. But it's hard to hit that jackpot and get lucky. You think you can control it, but it's not really so.”
