Dianne Wiest’s long collaboration with Woody Allen began in 1985 with “The Purple Rose of Cairo.” Cast in a tiny part as a hooker who picks up Jeff Daniel’s character in an amusement park. Woody was impressed with her scene-stealing performance. So much so he cast her in his next film, “Hannah and her Sisters.” Dianne’s performance in that movie blew movie critics away. She walked off with every major award for that performance, including the Oscar.
