Jack Nicholson's actress daughter will forever be indebted to the director of new movie Soul Surfer - because he set her up with a new best pal.
Lorraine Nicholson had to bond with AnnaSophia Robb in the biopic, and moviemaker Sean MCNamara insisted the two girls spend time together before filming started.
The actress says, "They set us up on a friendship date. We went to a restaurant but I was really embarrassed because I was wearing the same dress as the waitresses.
"It really did work because we became really good friends and I see her all the time. That's one of the greatest things that has come out of this movie is my friendship with AnnaSophia."
