Spotted! Woody Allen and Lucy Punch sneaking out of their own premiere

Rumours of stars skipping out of the screenings of their movies are as old as TIFF itself, but this year it seems as though more such truancy is being caught on camera. Yesterday, it was Milla Jovovich and Robert DeNiro skipping out of the Stone premiere. Today, it’s Woody Allen and scene-stealing actor Lucy Punch excusing themselves from the 6 p.m. screening of You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. As the pictures below reveal, the pair left separately (at 6:07 and 6:18, respectively) through the back door of the Elgin Theatre.
