"I'd say 'Hey, hello,' and it would say 'Hey, how are you? After 20 seconds, it quickly fell apart and you realized how it actually works, and it wasn't that impressive. The more people that talked to it, the smarter it got." Inspiration also came from Kaufman's writing approach for Synecdoche, New York (2008).Jonze explained, "[Kaufman] said he wanted to try to write everything he was thinking about in that moment – all the ideas and feelings at that time – and put it into the script.Theodore confides to Amy that he is having doubts about his relationship with Samantha, and she advises him to embrace his chance at happiness. Samantha expresses her desire to help Theodore overcome his fear, and reveals that she has compiled the best of his letters (written for others) into a book which a publisher has accepted.Theodore takes Samantha on a vacation during which she tells him that she and a group of other OSes have developed a "hyperintelligent" OS modeled after the British philosopher Alan Watts.The date goes well, but Theodore hesitates to promise when he will see her again, so she insults him and leaves.Theodore mentions this to Samantha, and they talk about relationships.

Consequently, a supporting character played by Chris Cooper that was the subject of a documentary within the film was removed from the final cut.The idea of the film initially came to Jonze in the early 2000s when he read an article online that mentioned a website where a user could instant message with an artificial intelligence."For the first, maybe, 20 seconds of it, it had this real buzz," said Jonze.I was very inspired by that, and tried to do that in [Her].And a lot of the feelings you have about relationships or about technology are often contradictory." In discussing the film's look, Jonze told Van Hoytema that he wanted to avoid a dystopian look, instead the two decided on a style that Van Hoytema termed "kind of a hybrid between being a little bit conceptual and being very theoretical," During production of the film, actress Samantha Morton performed the role of Samantha by acting on set "in a four-by-four carpeted soundproof booth made of black painted plywood and soft, noise-muffling fabric".
