How Rosemarie DeWitt and Anne Hathaway decided to conduct their relationship off-screen, in consideration of their relationship on it...

"We had one dinner beforehand, and I think we were already starting to inhabit our characters a bit, and it was very polite and nice. And then I think our instincts were to not become buddy-buddy — sometimes that works, you know, sometimes you need that to be able to finish each other's sentences — but I think we would have been in danger of maybe diffusing the necessary tension between these two women. So we sort of just maybe had a little bit of chat in the morning before we started and then, you know, I had my iPod in probably for the rest of the day."
