In reference to the title of his book "Don't Stand Too Close To a Naked Man", Allen said it refers to his prison stay. "When one is walking into jail for the first time while fellow cons whistle and holler, 'Hey, chicken, you're in my cell,' the title's injunction can be taken as sound advice." --as told to Tim Appelo in Entertainment Weekly, November 18, 1994.

Allen received a $66,000 Porsche from the folks at Disney in appreciation of the large box-office opening of "The Santa Clause".

Received honorary degree from Western Michigan University in 1998.

Entered a three-week alcohol rehabilitation clinic in April, 1998

"I would love to do something serious, but can you imagine me going, 'No, Spartacus!' I don't know that you would want that. I think there's an opportunity for me to use the art I have and maybe be something like a likable villain. And I have the capacity to do a transformation person. I've done a lot of that. So I could go from good to bad to terrible to good again, and you'd buy it..."-Allen
