Nathan Lane felt instant chemistry with Bette Midler on the set of Isn’t She Great, which he shot this summer.
Midler plays Valley Of The Dolls author, Jaqueline Susann and Lane is cast as her husband, Irving Mansfield.
“You know what I call Bette?” Lane said, laughing. Feisty Spice. That’s my nickname for her. I think we were destined to work together. Â We had so many laughs and she’s so funny. There were days she would kill me, she was so funny. We were like an old married couple. We were like the battling Bickersons the way we would carry on. She’s wonderful.”
