This is the first collaboration between the two actresses Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman. Both actresses have been working since the 1980s, won their Academy Award in the early 2000s, and have been among the highest paid actresses in the movie industry. According to director Billy Ray, there was a healthy working relationship between the two; "There was enormous respect, great camaraderie, and, in my opinion - I don't know if either of them would ever admit to it - there was a very healthy, kind of athletic level of competitiveness. They both had such regard for each other and they both wanted to do their best because the other was in the movie." See more »
