Maybe the better question is what isn’t Woody Allen afraid of? He’s reportedly afraid of sunshine, dogs, children, heights, small rooms, crowds, cancer and various illnesses, and any place on earth outside Manhattan. That last one must be hard since he’s currently filming his new film “Midnight in Paris” on location. (Credit: Stephane Kossmann/Renault via Getty Images)
