Golden Globes: Scarlett Johansson reveals harrowing real-life influence on Marriage Story

Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver starred in the epically-long Netflix movie Marriage Story on Netflix, and the exceptional yet heartbreaking film is a huge contender to take the awards circuit by storm. Dressed in a figure-hugging floor-sweeping red gown, star Johannson spoke about hers and the director’s process in making the film ahead of tonight’s Golden Globes.

Speaking to E! News on the red carpet, the actress told how she and Baumbach shared their own real-life experiences so they could feed them into the film.

“When you were preparing to shoot, you gave essence of yourself into this script is that right?” presenter Ryan Seacrest asked.

“Yeah I mean Noah and I talked about a lot of stuff,” the actress agreed.

“We talked about our own experience with divorce, we talked a lot about what it was like to co-parent.

“But all parts of us are in there for sure.”

“When you make a choice what you’re going to get behind, what goes in it” Seacrest went on.

“What has to speak to you for you to be someone that wants to do it?”

“A big part of it is who I’m collaborating with,” Johansson replied honestly.

“That’s what I look for really, things that scare me,” the star added.
