This might be a little TOO much preparation…
Naomi Watts recently revealed in an interview with Vogue Australia that she developed a very close relationship with Matthew McConaughey while preparing for their upcoming movie, The Sea of Trees.

Both Watts and McConaughey are married, yet they decided since neither one of them had time to prepare for their parts — in which they'll play a married couple — it was best to write love letters to one another.
Watts remembers reaching out to the 45-year-old actor, saying:
"We didn't have any time to prep [for the movie] so when Matthew reached out to me via email, I said: 'Do you mind if we write to each other in character?' And he wrote back and said: 'Write at will, Joan."
She goes on to explain their relationship by saying:
"So we proceeded to create this relationship through letters. Some would be just a few lines or something fairly benign, and then other times it would be a long letter about how we failed and how we need to change and accusations of giving up; the same old story, your classic marriage problems. Sometimes we would write poetry, sometimes love letters, sometimes stormy letters, sometimes I would leave a voice recording [as Joan] knowing he was going to be shooting in the forest that day. It was great."
We suppose it's all in the name of art, but honestly, isn't this kind of communication a bit intimate?
What do you think?
