Starring alongside acting heavyweights Adam Driver and Laura Dern, Johansson revealed that she relied on her personal experience for the film which follows a couple through a breakup.

“I was actually going through a divorce,” she told press of her first meeting with director Noah Baumbach. “I didn’t know what we were going to talk about...I just kind of blew into the room, ordered a glass of wine and started complaining [about the divorce].”

Although warned ahead of time by Baumbach that the role might be difficult for the actress, Johansson said she felt she was “fated” for the part.

“It was an experience to share with him and have him share with me,” she explained. “And it somehow came at just the right time.”
