Scarlett Johansson 'frustrated' Redford, biography reveals
31st July 2009
Robert Redford's upcoming biography is set to detail his frustrations at working with Scarlett Johansson.
The film veteran's book Robert Redford: The Biography hints at his personal feelings towards Johansson on the set of The Horse Whisperer.
Redford directed the multi-star film, whose cast included Kristin Scott Thomas, Sam Neil' and Dianne Wiest.
Johansson was only 13 at the time the film was made in 1998, but Redford said that she was a point of friction with the director.
He lays some of the blame for his frustration with Johansson's mother, who is said to have encouraged back talk.
Redford said that the young actress had an overbearing stage manner during filming and often made her own interpretations of her role that ran counter to his own.
The 72-year-old recently married his long-term girlfriend, German artist Sibylle Szaggars, in a low-key ceremony in Hamburg.
