London, Mar 8 (ANI): It was not just Scarlett Johanssons pretty face that impressed The Other Boleyn Girl’s novelist Philippa Gregory, but also the actress full commitment to the historical accuracy of her character in the movie adaptation.

Gregory, who was employed as a historical consultant to help transform her book into the new Hollywood movie, was stunned at how determined the cast was to correctly portray the 16th century story, and singled out Johansson for special praise.

Johansson won Gregorys approval over her commitment to historical accuracy throughout the shoot.

When I got on set it was like a reading group. The whole cast and set were reading not just The Other Boleyn Girl but the rest of my Tudor novels, too, The Daily Express quoted Gregory, as saying.

Theyd come up to me and say, How does this fit with this? and Who is this person?

Scarletts copy of the book is broken-backed and its marked on every page. Shes continually going to the writer and director and saying, Lets look at this lets do it this way, she added. (ANI)
