BEN VS. WOODY
How's Ben Affleck stack up to her Vicky Cristina Barcelona director, Woody Allen? "Ben's a lot taller!" says Hall. "They're such different people. But they're both very trusting of actors."
The male-dominated Town cast "all ganged up on me," says Hall, the daughter of renowned theater director Peter Hall and opera singer Maria Ewing. "I was endlessly teased."
"Every character I play, I make some sort of nerdy playlist for," she says. For her Town role, "I got quite a lot of Smashing Pumpkins."
