Eric Bana Pours Water on the Cat Fight Rumor

Eric Bana, who stars with Scarlett Johansson and Natalie Portman in “The Other Boleyn Girl,” dismissed the rumor that there was any sort of rivalry going on between the two female leads in the film. Sky News Online reports that Bana indicated that both women pushed each other to deliver the best performance possible and that it was merely friendly professional competition.

I could see the two clashing because they do seem to have such different personalities, but at the same time, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the movie’s publicity machine spinning this yarn to get us to see the movie.
