Sometimes art really does imitate life.
Scarlett Johanssontold E!'s Ryan Seacrest at tonight's 2020 Golden Globes that her real-life experience with divorce played an important role in bringing director Noah Baumbach's Marriage Story to life.
"We talked about our own experience with divorce," she recalled of the production process, adding, "We talked about what it was like to co-parent. We also talked a lot about our parents. We talked a lot about our families, our intimacy."
Though Johansson, whose critically-acclaimed performance earned her a nomination for Best Actress in a Drama Motion Picture, admits the Netflix film is a "fictional story," she told us, "The narrative is very true and I think that is what people respond to."
"It comes from a very real place... All parts of us are in there for sure," she added.
