Emma Stone - Emma Stone: Woody Allen keeps scripts 'under wraps'

Emma Stone says Woody Allen ''goes to great lengths'' to keep details of his scripts a secret.

'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' actress stars alongside Colin Firth in Allen's upcoming romantic comedy 'Magic in the Moonlight' and they've revealed they were only given a short amount of time to read their scripts before they had to hand them back.

Emma told The Daily Beast: ''Some cast members never get to look at the script. Some cast only ever sees their part. He's incredibly protective of the plot. I think he goes to great lengths to keep it under wraps.

''I had a very short meeting with him and his casting directors, and about a month later I got to go to his office to read the script, and then give it back.''

Stone stars as a young woman who claims she can not only tell the future but can also communicate with the dead in the film, while Firth plays Stanley, a renowned illusionist under the stage name Wei Ling Soo, who's hired by the consigliere of a wealthy family to expose Stone's character.

Firth admits he had the same experience with Allen's script for the movie, saying: ''You get to read it in a controlled experiment while you're closely watched. Funnily enough, the script was driven to me in a remote part of Italy while someone waited while I read it, and then handed it back.''

However, Stone, 25, claims its not the first time she's experienced secretiveness over film scripts.

She added: ''It sounds weird, but I've read 'Spider-Man' the same way. Now, all these scripts need to be controlled, otherwise they leak.''
