Natalie Portman says that Lauren Bacall did not like her and called her out on her directing skills



In 2008, Lauren Bacall starred in the Natalie Portman-directed short film Eve. During a panel for Portman's A Tale of Love and Darkness, her feature film directorial debut, she revealed that Bacall was totally unimpressed with her directing skills when they worked together.

"I must be honest: She did not like me, but I loved her and admired her so much. She sensed in me what I learned later about myself, that I had a really hard time saying what I wanted and being the boss. It took me a few weeks to be comfortable saying 'I want this,' 'I want that.' When I was 26 on Eve with [Lauren Bacall] I was not decisive, and she called me out on it and was totally right. But she was a total pro, despite the fact that she was so unimpressed by me. She was amazing in every take."
