Did this world come as easy to Anderson as the others he wrote about? Anderson quipped, “well for ‘Boogie Nights,’ it was about porn and of course that came naturally to me.” Then he added, “for ‘There Will Be Blood,’ it was about oil and being from California I knew something about that. But this one it was distant. I love England and the people, the culture. The story of couture in that time, and the fairy tale that it is could only be told in Paris or London so I chose London. Plus they have the greatest actors there.”
Anderson’s close friend Daniel Day Lewis was also a collaborator with him in developing and writing this film. “He had gigantic input,” Anderson explains, “He did an enormous amount of research. He learned how to sew; he got pretty close to making 100 buttonholes.” (DDL fans will recall the actor once took off a year to be a cobbler’s apprentice in Florence, Italy.)
