Mariel Hemingway, 53, had a breakthrough role in Allen's 1979 film Manhattan, in which she played the actor/director's significantly younger love interest in a role which earned her an Oscar nomination.

In her new memoir, Out Came the Sun, Hemingway suggests that Allen wanted to be more than just friends off screen when she was 18 years old and he was in his 40s.

In an excerpt from the tome obtained by Fox News, Hemingway writes, "Our relationship was platonic, but I started to see that he had a kind of crush on me. Though I dismissed it as the kind of thing that seemed to happen any time middle-aged men got around young women."

The actress then recalls that Allen flew to her parents' home in Idaho and allegedly suggested that she and him take a trip to Paris, France together. Hemingway admits she became concerned they would have to share a room together, and subsequently pulled out of the trip.

She writes, "I wasn't sure if I was even going to have my own room. Woody hadn't said that. He hadn't even hinted it. But I wanted them (my parents) to put their foot down. They didn't. They kept lightly encouraging me. No one was going to get their own room. His plan, such as it was, involved being with me... (I asked him) 'I'm not going to get my own room, am I?'... (so I told him) 'I can't go to Paris with you.'"

The actress writes that Allen left the next morning on his private jet.

Hemingway's memoir Out Came the Sun is set for a release on 7 April (15).
