However, Woody explained their dinner was not about a project.

"That was a social dinner, but as I said, she's a very gifted girl and I would not hesitate if I had something for her," he continued. "I'd certainly call her."

When asked if he would be worried about insuring Lindsay on a project, the filmmaker said not at all.

"That would not concern me, no. I mean, if there was some reason that I couldn't, that would be a different story, some legal reason, but it would not concern me personally, no," Woody continued. "I think that she'd be just fine and she'd do a great job."
