LONDON - Hollywood legend Robert Redford has revealed he had to struggle to work with young actress Scarlett Johanson on the sets of his 1998 movie “The Horse Whisperer” as she she “frustrated” him.
The actress was 13 when director Redford cast her to star in the film, and although he acknowledges her acting talent he found it difficult working with her, reports imdb.com.
In the upcoming book “Robert Redford: The Biography”, a crew member from the movie claims the “Lost In Translation” star would constantly interpret her scenes against Redford’s own vision.
The book also alleges that Johansson’s mother influenced the young actress, causing her to constantly talk back to the director - leading to “friction” between the pair on set.
