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.''

Avengers Assemble! 17 Signs You're Marvel For Life

Oct 31 2014 8:37am CDT | Source: movie pilot

When it comes to Marvel, we all love it, plain and simple.I mean, how could we not? There's enough awesomeness in a single Iron Man movie to fuel three other non-Marvel franchises - and then there's Cap, Thor, Hulk, the Guardians, Black Widow, Nick Fury, Agent Freakin' Coulson, and so...much...more...I mean, even Hawkeye would be ridiculously awesome if he was in any other movie series - he only loses bad-ass points 'cause he's ...

Endangered Avengers: 3 Candidates For Death In Age Of Ultron

Oct 31 2014 5:35am CDT | Source: movie pilot

From the sounds of Joss Whedon's comments earlier this year, there's a very real chance that we're going to see an Avenger meet their maker (or, in the case of Thor, his dad, presumably) in Avengers: Age of Ultron.After all, Whedon revealed that his core philosophy for the movie would be “Death, death and death.” Which, no matter how you spin it, is going to be a bumpy, emotional ride - and the internet responded accordingly, wit ...

When Joss Whedon's Avengers: Age of Ultron was filming in London last summer, I got to visit the set along with a few other reporters.   Like most Marvel set visits, they let us talk to the entire cast and watch filming.  While the production was guarded about what they were willing to tell us, we learned a ton of cool secrets behind what’s bound to be one of the biggest films of 2015.  In The Avengers sequel, Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris H ...
