WOODY Allen can’t stand Al Pacino!

During a timeout at a recent Knicks game, the director decided to have a dialogue with someone sat next to him..

“A guy sitting near him says, ‘Woody, listen let’s have a debate,’” a source told the New York Daily News.

“‘Who’s the greatest? Sean Penn, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro or Jack Nicholson?’ And Woody says, ‘Now this is an interesting conversation,’ followed, shockingly, by ‘I don’t like Al Pacino.’”

Woody  then went into a rant about Brian DePalma’s infamous 1983 flick starring Pacino as drug lord Tony Montana, saying, “What’s so good about Scarface?’”

“The guy asked what about The Godfather? Serpico? And Woody says, ‘What are we talking about here?’

“Woody was saying Sean Penn is great and is never going to make bad movies ever, but that his ultimate favorite is Jack. He asked the guy: ‘What about “The Shining”? That film is great’,

“Woody said ‘Jack’s the greatest’ and that no one even comes close.”
