Actor ERIC BANA has hit out at reports of a rift between SCARLETT JOHANSSON and NATALIE PORTMAN during filming for their new movie THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL, insisting they “really love each other”.
The Troy star is baffled by claims Johansson and Portman failed to get along onset, and has condemned the press for stirring controversy between the pair – because they couldn’t be closer.
He says, “Why is it that people in the media hate the idea that actors working together is possibly true?
“I hate to break it to you but actors really do love each other. It’s a crazy job and we put ourselves in vulnerable positions. I don’t care if it sounds corny but it’s true: you’re part of a brotherhood, and protect each other.
“And they indeed do get along really well.”
