Natalie Portman talks Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal

Natalie Portman has revealed that she felt very comfortable working with Tobey Maguire and Jake Gyllenhaal.

The actress, who co-stars alongside Maguire and Gyllenhaal in the drama Brothers, has said that the chemistry between the three actors on set came naturally after years of knowing each other:

“It was actually really exciting because this is the first time I’ve ever worked with actors that I knew before. I met Tobey when I was 14, I met Jake when I was 18, so there was a level of familiarity from the first day, which was really a nice way to enter into it.

“We also had a nice rehearsal period for a few weeks before we started, where we got to go over each other’s houses and talk about it and try things out.”
