Woody Allen’s leading ladies

<b>Rachel McAdams</b>
The true leading lady of Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” is the City of Lights, but Allen also makes use of Canadian actress Rachel McAdams (right). She plays Owen Wilson‘s character’s pretty young fiancée who suspects him of stepping out on her with another woman as he embraces the city’s history.

This is McAdams’ first foray into Allen’s films.  (Associated Press)
<b>Louise Lasser</b>
Lasser, who might be known to some for the 1970s soap opera spoof “Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman,” was married to Allen in the ‘60s and worked with him on “Bananas” (pictured), “What’s New Pussycat?,” “Take the Money and Run” and “Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Sex * But Were Afraid to Ask.”

Lasser studied political science at Brandeis University. When Allen’s character meets his first wife in “Annie Hall,” which was made after the couple split, his character asks her “You, you, you’re like New York, Jewish, left-wing, liberal, intellectual, Central Park West, Brandeis University, the socialist summer camps ...” Maybe that’s just a coincidence ... (United Artists)
<b>Diane Keaton</b>
Another of his past paramours, Keaton stars in a laundry list of Keaton-Allen collaborations that includes “Play It Again, Sam,” “Sleeper,” “Manhattan” and “Annie Hall” (pictured), which garnered best picture, actress, director and original screenplay Oscars. Keaton has said that Annie is an “idealized version of me” (Hall is Keaton’s real last name; she’s been called “Annie” as a nickname).

The last film Keaton and Allen worked on was 1993’s “Manhattan Murder Mystery.” It was the first time they’d played a married couple; Zach Braff played their son. (File Photo)
<b>Mia Farrow</b>
Sure, off-screen Allen and Farrow starred in the messy breakup and custody battle that ensued over their children. Onscreen, she appeared in films like “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “The Purple Rose of Cairo,” “September,” “Alice,” “Crimes and Misdemeanors"(pictured) ... we can go on. (Brian Hamill / Orion Pictures Corp.)
<b>Mariel Hemingway</b>
At the ripe old age of 16, Ernest’s granddaughter got an Oscar nomination for playing Allen’s high-school-age love interest in 1979’s “Manhattan” (pictured). As an adult, she appeared in 1997’s “Deconstructing Harry.” (United Artist)
<b>Scarlett Johansson</b>
A newer addition to the Allen ingenues, Johansson has played an experimental American finding herself abroad in “Vicky Cristina Barcelona” (pictured with Rebecca Hall, left), the scorned other woman in “Match Point” and a budding journalist in over her head in “Scoop” (the last of Allen’s films where he can be seen onscreen in a role before the upcoming “The Wrong Picture” ). (Victor Bello / Associated Press)

<b>Tracey Ullman</b>
There is some time lapse between Ullman-Allen collaborations. She appeared in two films about kooky criminals: 1994’s “Bullets Over Broadway” and 2000’s “Small Time Crooks” (pictured). (John Clifford / DreamWorks)
<b>Dianne Wiest</b>
Aside from “Bullets Over Broadway” (pictured), Wiest has worked with Allen in “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “The Purple Rose of Cairo,” “September,” and “Radio Days.” She won supporting actress Oscars for “Bullets” and “Hannah.” (Brian Hamill)

<b>Judy Davis</b>
Davis’ and Allen’s paths have crossed on films like “Husbands and Wives” (pictured, here on the left with Allen and Mia Farrow), “Celebrity,” “Deconstructing Harry” and “Alice.” (Brian Hamill / TriStar Pictures)
<b>Julie Kavner</b>
Although some probably instinctively think of her as the voice of Marge Simpson or as Rhoda Morgenstern’s sister, Kavner has worked with Allen on the televised version of his play “Don’t Drink the Water” (seen here on the left with Mayim Bialik, Allen and Michael J. Fox) as well as the movies “Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Radio Days,” “Alice” and “Deconstructing Harry.” (Brian Hamill)
