Scarlett Johansson stressed by Hitchcock shower scene

Nov 21 2012, 12:02am CST | by

Scarlett Johansson was nervous about filming the classic 'Psycho' shower scene in her new biopic 'Hitchcock'.

Scarlett Johansson thought shooting the iconic 'Psycho' shower scene in 'Hitchcock' was ''stressful''.
The 27-year-old actress plays Janet Leigh in Sacha Gervasi's 'Hitchcock' - a biopic about the making of the legendary director's 1960 thriller 'Psycho' - and confessed she was anxious about filming nude until the crew put her at ease.
Scarlett said: ''They had seven days to shoot that scene originally, we did it in one - so it was a little bit stressful. I have to say that I was happy not to be in the shower for seven days with the crew around.
''But everyone made it as comfortable as possible, Sacha Gervasi and the crew were very discreet and respectful. It was just about getting the work in, capturing the work and the performance. It was fine in the end, once you get the first take done your golden.''
The blonde beauty took ''pleasure'' in bringing one of Alfred Hitchcock's favourite leading ladies to life, and devoured biographies about the late star and even talked to her daughter Jamie Lee Curtis in order to better understand her character.
Scarlett told Flicksandbits.com: ''More than transforming into Janet Leigh, for me it was about capturing her essence. I didn't really try to mimic her, we're very different, but it was the process of being able to meet her through people that knew her, through her biographies, her work.
''It was a pleasure, she was beloved on-screen and off, she was a wonderful actress. It was nice to be able to have a character like that to invoke that every day.''

Imagine what Lloyd and Harry, the heroes of the Farrelly brothers’ “Dumb and Dumber To,” the sequel to the movie you’ve all been waiting for (right?), could do if they only used more than just 1% of their brains. Which is apparently what they’ve been getting by on all this time. I guess we’ll find out when the film opens this November. Until then, take a gander at two posters featuring our leading men that mimics the poster for Luc Besson’s “Lucy.” ...

Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels Channel LUCY in New DUMB AND DUMBER TO Posters

Aug 15 2014 8:30pm CDT | Source: Collider

Two brand new Dumb and Dumber To posters just popped up and rather than show Jim Carrey’s Lloyd Christmas and Jeff Daniels’ Harry Dunne in the middle of some crazy antics, like hanging with Butthole, sharing a bike made for one or driving that crazy dog grooming van, the pair is parodying Lucy.  Yes, the recent Scarlett Johansson release, Lucy.  It seems like an odd choice, but there are limited options when you consider that they can only pull this kind of thing with ...

Does This Winter Soldier Deleted Scene Tease a Black Widow Movie Prequel?

Aug 12 2014 5:30pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Walt Disney Pictures has released a new deleted/extended scene from Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier. The scene, which would have taken place in the second half of the movie (so, yeah, spoiler warning) features Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) disabling security protocols and dumping S.H.I.E.L.D. data onto the internet. Everything on Hydra, everything on S.H.I.E.L.D. — everything. This also means that Natasha Romanoff would also be rev ...
