Portman and Johansson had known each other casually before shooting Boleyn, their first on-screen collaboration. Portman had signed on first and expressed her desire to engage in a little sibling rivalry with Johansson.
“We had some mutual friends,” Johansson says. “I’ve always been a fan. Her choices, the work that she has done â€” it’s true. I’ve always been a huge fan, but I never assumed there would be an opportunity where we could work together in such an intimate way. And then I heard she wanted me to do it.”
