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.''

We don’t know when The Avengers 3 is going to be released. We don’t know who’s going to write it, who’s going to direct it, but we always thought we know who’d star. Now, even that may be up in the air. A new rumor says that whatever Marvel Studios has planned for the eventual third Avengers film isn’t what we think at all. It may not even feature many of the big stars of Phase 1 and 2. Stars like Chris Evans as Captain America, Chris Hemsworth as Thor or Scarlett Johansson a ...

Jeremy Renner Isn’t Gunning for a Hawkeye Standalone

Sep 24 2014 10:30am CDT | Source: slash film

For many stars, a Marvel contract means the possibility of a standalone movie, or several of them. Robert Downey Jr. has had three already, and Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth have had two each. Even Scarlett Johansson has been happy to play up the Black Widow movie rumors, though Kevin Feige‘s been dragging his feet about confirming anything just yet. But there hasn’t been much chatter about a potential Hawkeye solo film — and Jeremy Renner, for one, seems totally ok ...
