While this marks Adams and Fisher's first film together, they have been friends for years. They first met while auditioning for the same role in the 2002 biopic Catch Me If You Can. The part ultimately went to Adams.
"Amy and I are both girls' girls, and we're both very friendly, so we just started chatting," Fisher said about meeting Adams at the audition. "I remember around the time she was in Junebug and she was nominated for an Oscar. I just remember it was so exciting, because she was like my peer and we'd started out together and it gave me hope that maybe I'd last more than a minute in the business."
Not only are they good friends, they're around the same age (Adams is 42, while Fisher is 40) and they're both moms. Fisher told ET that their daughters are in the same dance class.
