Trivia & Facts

• It’s based on a true story.

Quotes: Scarlett Johansson

• “I was not playing the girl who is always bridesmaid never a bride, or looking for a husband, or the other woman – none of those things. She’s a very practical, rounded, motivated, independent woman. I find as I get older, it’s nice to move away from the ingénue category. It’s fun and I’ve done it very well by, but it’s nice to be able to transtition into women that came with a history, that are established.”
