Washington, Sep 30 (ANI): Filmmaker Woody Allen has credited psychoanalysis for having a long film career and happy life.

The Everyone says I Love You filmmaker revealed that it frustrates him when people claim that years of therapy have made him neurotic and an anxious personality.

Allen believes that therapy saved him from a worse fate.

“People always tease me. They say, look at you, you went for so much psychoanalysis and you”re so neurotic, you wind up marrying a girl so much younger than you. You don”t like to go through tunnels, Contactmusic quoted Allen, as saying.

You don”t like to stand near the drain in the shower.

But I could also say to them, I”ve had a very productive life. I”ve worked very hard, I”ve never fallen prey to depression.

I”m not sure I could have done all of that without being in psychoanalysis.

People say to me, ”It’’s just a crutch,” and exactly what I need at this point in my life is a crutch, he added. (ANI)
